I've been interested in doing a suspension for a long time and I feel I'm ready. Just looking for some insight. Can you give me any advice? I would prefer you not tell me about your experience during the ritual. I don't want to have any expectations. I am just wondering about hardware. Suspension positioning. Number of hooks and where. I was thinking of a four a four hook suspension. One each side of my chest and one each shoulder blade.

Hi Justin. Do you know who or what suspension team will be suspending you? If you are still looking, you can do a little research and possibly find a group at Once you find a group, you should ask them directly about their suspension experience, rigging practices, etc. They should talk to you to find out what your goals are, what you wish to get out of the suspension, and also find out some details such as your weight. From there they can make some appropriate suggestions on how you might want to suspend.

Thanks Chris. My friend owns a tattoo shop and he just brought in a new piercer from Grand Rapids Michigan this week. He is part of a suspension team and is planning on starting a team in my area. I talked to him in great detail and we are going to be working together on my suspension. I plan on having a lot of material to share on this board.

That sounds awesome. I hope everything works out for you for the suspension. I'm hopefully doing my first this summer. I've wanted to do one for several years now. Let us know how everything goes!
