Mixing Art and Play

Ask any elementary school teacher and they’ll tell you about the value of both art and play.  When the two are combined, the result is nothing short of amazing.  Now just because we’re all adults doesn’t mean we can’t play around with art now and then.  Kai from Khabarovsk, Russia combined both body art and play piercing to create this photo.

It also doesn’t hurt that the model is cute.

Birds of a feather

Dearest Jane has a fun job.  She’s a piercer, and she gets to do play piercings like this one.  The model, Tyger Lily was transformed into a “Lily Bird” by Jane as part of a grand opening party for a friend’s studio.

Jane works out of Miami Tattoo Company, located conveniently in Miami, FL.  Check out her portfolio gallery to see this project from start to finish.

Lost on the Edge of the Wasteland

Here’s a great photo from photographer Paul Jobes, with piercings by the Skin Seamstress herself, Zombieprincess.  It looks like she threaded the end of the feathers into the ends of the play piercing needles, giving the model, Raeven Irata, the look of a fallen angel with broken wings.

Raised Heart

Sure this may look like a simple play piercing, but after taking a closer look you can see how the needles have created a heart out of the negative space, to the point that your brain fills in the missing lines.  It almost appears to be raised like scar tissue.

A Piercing Performance – Part 1

We get photos of performance art pieces all the time.  Sometimes it’s suspension related, and other times it involves piercings.  This one in particular is like nothing I’ve seen before, and it involves a lot of piercings.

There’s more to show you, but the rest don’t have any strategically placed arms, so you’ll have to keep reading to see them.
