i could not explain it, but google knew who could:
This is not something new, it’s not a “fad” either. Man has been modifying his body forever. The Aztecs performed modifications to their genitals. Elizabethans practiced corsetry. The Native Americans practice the O-Kee-Pa. When one takes their flesh into their control, they have the power to change their world. Most people never have the fortune of experiencing enough pain to reach an altered state. Never experiencing such a powerful sensation is like going through life without ever opening ones eyes. The act of changing ones body for pleasure be it aesthetic or spiritual or ritual should be embraced by our society. [source]

oh fuck yeah.
and i love this. love it. it hurts, and i love it, and my kink is not for pain, i don’t do pain for recreation, but pain for decoration, there is nothing that compares. i guess you either ‘get’ this or you don’t, either the thought of honoring your body with ornamental injuries makes almost sacred sense, or you think the whole thing’s whacked.
i am feeling. amazing.
