The ties that bind

While the vast majority of corsets done are meant to be temporary, ones done with play piercing needles seem to emphasize the non-permanence of the binding.  Yet at the same time the show that while the binding may not be permanent, the choice to be bound has been made, and for the time the corset is in place, the wearer is bound by their own self imposed restrictions.

Brandie_Lea’s corset was done by Chris “Cheff” Shelafoe from Open Eyed Tattoo in Marquette, MI.

There are a couple more photos from the play session in the play piercing gallery, which are worth checking out.
