Hitting all the bases

After a while corsetry pictures all start to look the same, but these pictures that Shorty of Ink and Pistons Tattoo and Slushbox Art Gallery (PiercingsbyShorty.com) created in collaboration with a body painter, hair stylist, and photographer. The photography and hair are great of course, but what really set it apart for me was the way the body paint and corset piercing intermingle and play off each other. Giving full credit where it’s due, the body paint and makeup was by Georgette Pressler of Devious Body Art (DeviousBodyart.com), the hair was by Melrose (Melrosehairdesign.com), and the photography by Tara Hauck (TaraIncPhotography.com). I think as people become more familiar with things like this, you have to present it better and better — it was the same with suspension. In the beginning, just watching a minute of simple suicide suspension was enough to really wow a crowd, but these days, it requires a sense of the theatrical and depending on the context, increasingly complex rigging. Same thing with corset projects.
