    <p><span style="font-size: medium; color: #000080;">I've been obsessed with the corset ribbon idea for awhile. Now finially wanna do it, but can't decide either to get it tattooed or pierced. Clearly the tattoo will be more convenient and comfortable once it healed. But the piercings look more dramatic and real. In terms of where, I love the idea getting it on the back or the side.. It's a tough call, so it will be REALLY helpful if someone can give me some useful suggestions. Follows a few pix that might give you all some ideas of what I'm talking about. Thanks a lot!</span></p> <p><img title="corset piercings on the back" src="http://www.dailyrevelry.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/corset-piercings-2.jpg" alt="corset piercings" width="600" height="480" /></p> <p><img title="corset piercings on the side" src="http://www.corsetheaven.com/forum/uploads/20061211_111947_pic05249.jpg" alt="corset piercings" width="342" height="320" /></p> <p><img title="corset tattoo on the back" src="http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/104/f/9/corset_tattoo__by_tstctc-d3dzb4d.jpg" alt="corset tattoo" width="667" height="1003" /></p> <p><img title="corset piercings on the back" src="http://www.ratemyink.com/images/ul/121/Back-Corset-tattoo-121572.jpeg" alt="corset tattoo" width="540" height="720" /></p> <p><img title="corset tattoo on the side" src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/190/506488572_d43f473471.jpg" alt="corset tattoo" width="375" height="500" /></p>

    How comfortable is that in social contexts? I've seen people with it in more fetishist contexts but to be honest this is the first time I've ever really imagined it being something you wear to go shopping or down the street.

    I didn't find any pics on your page, but I will assume you're very white, or else you might not have got a pink gater belt.

    My suggestion: how about you use colors which you like, which also avaiable in tattoo inks to do some experiments, I am thinking a pink + white rendering....yet it's true you need to recolor it every few years

    Sammi, I see.

    My opinion, maybe wrong because I know you too less.

    Willing should be put first.

    2nd: I think less is good, but sometimes if you creative enough, more if better.

    3rd: If you plan to get more piercings and tattooes gradually, you'd better not consider large patterns...Isince I think one is easily to get addicted to these two things:)

    @Sammi, 

    Yeah, I figured you could easily conceal it, but I was thinking more of the wear and tear of doing daily life stuff. I suppose just having studs in them wouldn't be a problem, though I can imagine being on Line 1 during peak hour would still be painful.

    I heard that if you get it pierced your skin ends up rejecting it (as is the case with most surface piercings) so it'll eventually just fall out. I'm pretty sure it's going to be really uncomfortable though unless you put a lot of slack in that ribbon. It's going to really restrict your movement.

    I say tattoo

    Kieran's right. Surface piercings are usually temporary. The skin will heal under the piercing and eventually force it out. It's nothing like a cartilage piercing on your ear or nose. 

    But my suggestion is the opposite. Do the piercing. It's more authentic, less permanent, and when you are ready to get rid of it there shouldn't be scarring as long as you kept it clean.

    Personally i prefer the piercing for that, more real but i dont think it's easy to carry this kind of piercing :s
