yyyyyuuuuummmmmyyyyyy. GOTTA love it!
As has been suggested here, this sort of suspension has been around a very long time, but the modern primitives are really bringing it into the limelight. It's also done in the bdsm community (I've a friend who is very willing to allow me to do it to him, but his skin is not as elastic as I would like and I'm concerned he might tear...he's a bit older and has some other health issues).
Sherri and I have a couple of friends and acquaintances who have done it. The more suspension points you use the less likely you'll tear, as it distributes the weight better (and you can use smaller gauge hooks because of it). I have seen a guy (at a tattoo convention) suspended from two hooks. The piercer (he did my hood) had custom hooks made (two). They were 00g. He pierced the guy with 2g needles and then inserted the (considerably larger) 00g hooks. The guy hung for about 7 minutes. It was a really large crowd and they weren't overly empathetic to the need for peace to remain centered. The kid who hung (he was in his early 20s) really did a wonderful job of it. I was impressed.
Hanging on a form over a sandbar with your toes gently swaying above the surf...sounds transcendental, to me.
