It’s been a while since we’ve had a Beauty over Harm post, and at first glance I didn’t even realize that this was one. For those that don’t know, the Beauty over Harm posts are a series that Sean started earlier in the year. It was inspired by those people who have had issues with self harm and have taken steps to move forward. For the most part these posts are meant to look at how those who have suffered from SI in the past can take the reminder of something negative and turn it into a positive, thereby reclaiming their body. Previous posts have seen both scarification and tattoos used in this manner, however today’s post features piercings in place of the other techniques.
Keep in mind that there are SI scars in this photo, so if they are triggering to you, it’s best to skip this post.
Bart Bastiaanse from Tribal Trading in Tilburg, The Netherlands was the piercer. According to the description he used custom surface bars for this piece.
