As the name suggests, the corset piercing comes from the woman’s garment worn around the torso.
This can be done using an array of piercings arranged in a similar fashion, which then allow you to tie a thread through them, as you would with a corset.
This is usually done along the back, but can also be performed laterally along the side.
Some women not only have it done on their back, along the side, from their rib cage to their hips, but also between their breasts, as seen on the illustration.
The piercing can be worn long-term, but should not be too tight.
Some customers get this piercing simply for fun, or for a special occasion such as a Life Ball or a photo shoot.
Because the corset piercing is simply an arrangement of surface piercings, the information regarding surface piercings also applies to corset piercings.
Because the skin in the pierced area is under a certain amount of tension, the healing process can take a little longer than in other piercings.
Initially you should not put any bands, strings, or threads through the piercings, but allow the rings to heal properly.
The length of the piercings will also affect the time it takes to heal.
Generally we use a diameter of 1.2mm or 1.6mm.
The average time it takes for this type of piercing to heal is approx. 2 months.
Daily care should be taken during the healing phase.
The single-point-piercing should be touched as little as possible (wash and disinfect your hands if doing so), and exposed to as little irritation as possible as well. Do not remove or twist the piercing when cleaning, since this can further damage the wound canal. Use ProntoLind-Spray and ProntoLind-Gel twice a day for the first 2-3 weeks, then once a day for another 3 weeks.
The depth of the piercing canal is essential to a successful surface piercing.
The rings are selected based on the wishes of the client and the length of the corsets.
You can use either 1.2mm or 1.6mm, but we recommend the latter.
