Corset Piercing

Updated on August 7, 2015

I had never heard about corset piercings until a few years ago when a friend of mine who was looking for an original tattoo came up with the idea. Apparently after months looking for an out of the ordinary tattoo as a wedding present for her future husband, she found a site online where they offered “weird” tattoos and piercings. The first time she showed me the corset piercings I was almost in pain at the look of them but nonetheless I found the concept fascinating. I admit that I do not have any piercings myself but the look of the corset piercings was so hypnotising I was almost sold on the idea myself.

After a long research, my friend who had already several tattoos and piercings, found a professional corset piercer. I do not know if she engaged him due to his professional credentials or just because he was the most handsome Italian stud I had ever seen. He explained to us that corset piercings took longer in healing and that because of its failure rate not many professional piercers were enthusiastic to do it. But he had done it before and was very confident with the results he could achieve.

To Pierce Or Not To Pierce...

The piercing affaire became a hot topic among our friends there were so many for and against arguments that it was difficult to keep up. As far as my friend was concerned, the more people against it, the more she was determined to have hers done. This should not have been a surprise for me as I already knew her masochist side.

Before her “big day” she discussed on several occasions with her Italian piercer the number of rings she was wanting and the exact place for each of them. Her piercing was to start under her shoulder blades and finish in her lower back. The agreed shape was an hourglass shape with 8 rings at each side of her back. By the time my friend decided to have her corset piercing done, she was already dating her piercer!

The day she went for her corset piercing we had lunch together. She reckoned that she needed a good meal before going for her “treatment” so she would not pass out during the process. I was concerned for her, but it reassured me that she had already gone for several piercings (belly button, tongue and lip) and she had always been a good healer, plus she was already sleeping with her piercer which meant that she would have someone in hand to clean her new piercings properly.

The Results Of Corset Piercing

Next time I saw my friend she was proudly showing me her pierced corset. I was jealous for a few minutes when I saw it. It was incredibly beautiful, but once she got into the details of how it had been done, any jealousy was immediately removed. According to my friend this was the most painful piercings she had ever had. How did she stand the 16 holes made in her back it is beyond me. I suppose that it helped that there was a comic side to all this. While the piercing was being done –at my friend’s home- her fiancé who had been travelling for a month phoned her and she had a hard time talking to him on the phone while her “new boyfriend” –who thought that he was the one and only- was piercing her back. Later she told me that it was harder to answer the phone than to stand the pain she was enduring. Despite her uneasiness she was happy that her fiancé phoned at that very moment so she had not time to think about the pain. In fact, by this time she had passed the pain limit and she could not feel her back anymore.

A few weeks later just before joining her fiancé abroad to start a new life, my friend finished her relationship with the piercer and her life went back to normal except for the new collection of laces that she had for her brand new pierced corset. I always wondered what happened after, how did her fiancé react. I wonder if she still has her corset and her fiancé. I also wonder what happened to that Italian stud… I should have got his number and make an appointment for a nail piercing!

This comprehensive overview traces the history of decorating the body from ancient civilizations until today. The authors include good sections about safety precautions as well as warnings about the social implications of body modification.


Corset Piercings, Who Are They For?

Temporary corset piercings are often performed for aesthetic reasons. Most people who have one done belong to a fetish group or enjoy BDSM activities. But there are also people who do it temporarily for advertising reasons or special events.


  • Temporary corset piercings are open wounds, and are subject to the same infection, cross contamination, and irritation risks as any other healing piercing or small wound.
  • Corset piercings, even healed ones, require constant vigilance by the wearer to prevent damage.
  • Permanent piercings subjected to extended periods of lacing can increase the risk of migration or rejection.
  • The healing process for permanent piercings can be extended and complicated due to the number of piercings healing at the same time
  • Like all surface piercings, rejected or improperly healed corset piercings can leave noticeable permanent scarring.

About The Corset Piercing Photos

Almost all of the photographs of corset piercing are of fresh piercings, which have not had the time to reject, migrate or otherwise fail to heal properly. Images used in advertising or magazines may be photoshopped or airbrushed to eliminate indications of swelling, redness, or infection, further promoting the illusion that these piercings are easy, or even possible to heal.

Usually corset piercings are photographed laced, also leading the public to believe that they can be worn laced at all times, which is not possible, even in a well healed, permanent corset piercing.

67% persons out of 604 people who read this article consider corset piercings beautiful But only 40% of them would consider having their body pierced.

      I just had my collarbone dermals redone after on rejected... This kind of piercing (any surface that is) is NOT for the feint of heart. They hurt alot, more than a bar piercing, they are permanent and if they become infected they hurt like hell until it heals. You need to take care of these things everyday for a year before they heal. yeah... a YEAR. They look amazing, and are worth the pain in my mind I just hate seeing people go through this all and pay this much for it (from $60-$100 PER piercing. so 16 captive beads means $960 to $1600 for this kind of work. That will probably be taken out in days or months. As for normal, single surface piercings, face, neck, arm or hips, they are the same price but WAY lower rejection rates because there is only one or two holes, not 10-20. Its an open wound people.... someone took a needle, dug around a bit and stuck a piece of metal through this fresh, bleeding wound. Not to be taken lightly :D

      Actually Carmenia, I cannot answer your question. I have not done any piercing myself, so I could not tell you whether it hurts or not. I like how corset piercings look, but I am not brave enough to have one done. Let us know how does your leg piercing goes. Good luck!

      I think that is kick ass!!!! I am actually looking online and doing my research because I am going to get doubles on my legs!!! But I think that your pictures are cool and they look amazing and I can not wait to get mine done. I have my ears pierced all the way up and my tongue and septum pierced and I have five tatoos. 2 on my sides and 2 on the back and one somewhere else, use your imagination I am just wondering Anath if the piercings on the legs are going to hurt anything like my other piercings or tatoos do you know? I am trying to go with the permanent ones.

      I think that the piercing requires too much maintenance to be left permanently Suzanne. Most people seem to do it only temporary.

      I took Fine Arts in college and, as part of our Life Drawing course, we had to draw nude models. One model, my favourite one, had over 50 piercings- including a lovely corset piercing on her back with deep purple ribbon against her pale skin. I'm not interested in getting one myself, but from an artistic perspective they are very elegant and visually appealing.

      There was a lot of info here- looks like you've really done your homework. :)

      They're so beautiful and look so amazing, but I just don't think they're that practical. I mean, piercings in themselves aren't practical, but trying to get a corset piercing permanently would get in the way of a lot of things. I had enough issues wearing shirts after I got my tattoo between my shoulder blades-- I couldn't imagine having to accommodate for a full back set of piercings like that. Pain wouldn't be my worry so much as my new piercing getting caught on or ruining my clothing.

      A perfect example of "the artist as the medium." While art has the ability to delight, inspire, entertain or horrify the observer it is often a labourious and painful rendering on the part of the artist. For art to flourish we must strive for open-mindedness and refrain from intolerant, visceral judgement.

      Thanks for coming back to clarify the concerns about corset body piercing Disturbia. As I said it, I really appreciate to have you here as you are the only person among us who has had this done.

      I can understand if you don't agree with people having this kind of piercing MikeNV; but I don't think that they need psychological treatment for doing it. It is a weird option I must admit, but everyone is free to do whatever they want with their body and we should respect their choices. Thanks for your honest opinion anyway.

      Exactly right cowgirljess, that's what happened to me. I got the darn thing caught on everything. Couldn't lean back in a chair or lay on my back and taking a shower was like a circus act reaching back and trying to undo the laces. Keeping the piercings clean was a project in itself. Finally I had the rings removed and replaced with barbells. More comfortable, but then I started to itch and eventually I just had everything taken out. I guess if you don't have a job, family, pets, and a life, you might be able to get away with just sitting around looking amazing. But my life was too busy, my husband too rough, and my kids thought it was just plain creepy. In fact my youngest daughter threw up the first time she saw it. It really didn't hurt when I got the piercings. It felt like a bunch of sharp pinches and didn't hurt nearly as much as some of the other piercings I have.

      And I disagree with MikeNV, humans have been decorating their bodies for thousands of years. I think it's very normal human behavior.

      I actually had one of these stupid things. It didn't really hurt to have it done but it was very uncomfortable to live with. I'm very impulsive but seriously in hindsight, I must have been completely out of my mind for even considering this. I have to admit, it looks very sexy and I loved showing it off but it was impossible to live with. I have other piercings in places I won't mention here, so I know they can get in the way and can be uncomfortable at times. I know what they are all about and how to care for them, but this was a whole different animal. First off, I had it on my back so I had to have help cleaning the piercings. I'd take the laces out to shower or they would get wet which was miserable. Then I'd have to have someone lace me back up. I love corsets which is probably why I thought this would be a good idea, but the piercings got in the way of my wearing corsets and other lingerie especially anything lacey or fishnet. It also made sleeping or doing anything else while laying on my back very uncomfortable. Eventually I had the whole thing removed. I miss the sexiness of it, but not the inconvenience.

      Crap! Excellent hub, Anath. I'm glad I broke down and read it. Great info. Loved the story. And can I just say....OUCH! CRAP! DANG! And soooo not for me. It does look way cool though when it's perfect.

      That was way cool! I think I might try something like that for Halloween. I'm sure I can reproduce that using a steel and latex! Of course I'll have to throw some blood in there with it. There can't be latex with blood!

      Great Hub. Your friends sound a lot like some of mine...We should hang out....

      Who are they for?? I can tell who they're not for,,,, they're NOT FOR ME!!!! And I havbe a pretty high pain tollerance, it is not even about the pain, as of which I would be screaming and crying no doubt, that is not the lookj I want or would go for, it's seems first of all, that it would be too much work than I would ever dream of doing, I tried pearcing my own belly button well I suceeded but it was crooked (I did it with a safety pin) and couldn't get the earring through. If I ever get anything done, it will be a tat.

      Thanks for sharing though, it never ceases to facinate and amaze me what people won't do to they're bodies

      WOW, Anath! I've never heard of corset piercing. What an educational story. Intriguing however, I felt I was going to pass out just reading about the painful procedure. LOL!

      These are not permanent piercings. The only picture of a corset piercing that was actually done correctly was the last picture. The other ones pictured were pierced with CBR's which will never heal properly, hence why the fourth row in the first picture is all sorts of red and gross. In about 99.9% of cases corset piercings will never be permanent. Rejection rate is WAY too high no matter you care for it and if the piercings are even pierced with proper jewelry.

      Informative Hub. I just wonder what they are going to come up with next. Hopefully not revert back to lip plates. :)

      Well done!

      God, this is an abomination and self-torture!!! It's leave a scar for life not to mention pain.... Thanks Anath, beautiful hub.

      Looks painful and I didn't think particularly attractive.

      All I can say is 'Ouch' not my thing at all, I can't think of anything more pointless, excuse the pun.

      It's very painful. I don't like this.
