When getting ready to head out for an evening of fun with some friends, there are a few things a person needs to do to get ready. Shower, pick out clothes, possibly put on makeup, get a corset piercing, make sure your accessories match, etc. While some people may not include one or two of these examples, it seems these ladies have made sure to include “get a corset” on their list of things to do.
For some reason, when I see this picture, all I can think about is what the reactions of my classmates would have been if my date showed up for prom with a corset. Granted back then, a lot of people would have had no clue what they were looking at. The same could be said for a lot of the newer styles of modifications. So while back then this would have been shocking, today it may only turn some heads. Does this mean that the mainstream world is becoming more accepting?
IAM:Candace posed this question on her blog today, “Do you think heavier mods (implants, removals, scarification, etc) will ever be accepted among society? Why?” If history is any indicator, there may come a day when what we consider heavy today, becomes something as normal as a stretched septum or lobe. What are your thoughts on this? Are we headed down the road towards the mainstream, or will the modified community continue to skirt the fringes of “normalcy”.
A big thank you to BME user ajulietgrey for sharing this picture with us. There are several more images of these corseted ladies up in the corset piercing gallery.
