You may be asking your self what is play piercing? Perhaps you're already familiar with this practice or are one of the enthusiasts. Play piercings are not done with the intention to be long term. They are typically shallow piercings done with sterile hypodermic needles that can be placed just about anywhere in an aesthetically pleasing design. The piercings are then removed once the session is done sometimes in only a few minutes. Individuals that take part in play piercing could be doing it for stress relief, self expression, artistic purposes, fetish or simply curiosity.
The origin of play piercing can be seen most within the BDSM scene were the experience of multiple piercings in an erotic environment is popular. But with my research I could not find a definitive origin. I do believe westernized culture was inspired and fascinated by cultural rituals and traditions within other groups from all over the world and play piercing may be an adaptation of traditions like celebrations of the Taihpusam in India. In Malaysia and Singapore there are devotees that pierce their tongues, cheeks, as well as multiple piercings along there back where objects are attached to add weight, all in demonstration of faith and penance.
Whether it be old traditions or new exhilarating experiences, play piercing can have different motives and offer different experiences to many people. Some piercing fans like to try everything once. Sometimes it's spontaneous and sometimes it's something that has been given a lot of thought. At New Flower Play Piercing is only a $40 service fee and $1 per needle.
