A Suspension Story


So hmm yeah,'s kind of a mystery to me.  Maybe one of you out there can tell me more about it? I was totally unaware of this community before I met Mr. Blue Sky's sister.  It was described to me as therapy, so I think I'll stick with that.  I feel like such a tourist explaining it, haha, I mean, I s'pose I am... but apparently it just seems to be something tattoo & piercing folks do, kind of a mind over matter for the thrill & liberation sort of thing?  Anyway, Mr. Blue Sky does some extreme things now and again, and I could tell he wanted to bond with his sister so...he did it! Here's the whole process.

She went first...

Then yep, there we have the nice clean uhh, hooking!

Up up and away..

Ahh finished. He did great!

Fits in with his motto, that's for sure...

Cleaning up, calming down.

Personally, suspending just ain't my thang, so don't worry, you probably won't see me or anyone else doing this anytime soon lol.  I'm pretty sure Blue Sky is happy to keep it as a one time thing. Like I said though, I don't fully understand it & it actually seems to be the opposite of my own lifestyle (in Yoga we practice Ahimsa or non-harming), but I can understand dealing with life in unconventional ways, and I know that just because I don't totally understand or identify with it, that doesn't make it bad.  To each their own, right?

  1. Wow!! Like you I probably wouldn't do this myself but I've always thought it was interesting after seeing it when I was at a Circus of Horrors performance!

    Have just come across your blog but loving exploring so far.

    Best wishes, Danielle.
