The Achilles Piercing

Thursday, February 14, 2008

Achilles tendon piercing

The Achilles Piercing is a piercing which passes between the achilles tendon and the ankle. It is a very rare piercing, and not everyone's anatomy is suited for it. Above you can see an example, Mr. Tetanus' pierce. He is a performance artist who has been wearing a self-made 10cm spike through his ankle, behind the Achilles tendon, for abbout 12 years. Read more about Dr. Tetanus on ModBlog


Piercing Fans International Quarterly magazine has documented the case of a man who had a stretched Achilles piercing that he used to suspend from. As seen in the picture below:

Woooh I love piercings, and I gotta respect this guy for having a pretty unique and obviously difficult piercing to handle. Wonder how long it took that to heal and then stretch?

Not something I'd get, but still. Wow.

Anonymous said...

What the fuck?
why would any one want to do that?
How do u wear shoes or pants? wtf
I don't get it...
To me that's not a piercing, that's a handicap!
obviously mental and physicly.
Omg get a life and have some respect for u'r body!
Some people have those things after serious injuries and can't life the same as they used to.. Why do you do such something to urself?
I hope it hurts really bad! u're sick..

I don't know how she or he can do something like this...it was realy painful reeeaalyyyy!!!

Christina said...

oh no O.O that's cruel.. the picture with that hanging foot looks like a scene from the movie 'hostel'. but if you like it, it's ok at all. i would never do it, but seriously, i respect you for doing that ^^

Natalie said...

lol. I love seeing peoples reactions to this type of thing. I mean look this is not a "piercing" really...you can't just walk into your local tattoo/piercing studio and expect to have anyone even consider doing this for you. It's a body mod. that's more than likely extremely dangerous and difficult to heal properly. Infection...yeah...you wouldn't really be able to wear socks or shoes that get anywhere near it for months...flipflops anyone?
But yeah all those "normal" piercings that we have today actually have been around for thousands of years and mostly started as tribal rituals or rites...and most were stretched more than we are used to seeing...and not just the ears! You don't have to like it,but if you're going to get pierced...respect ALL piercings, please! Remember, it's body ART! Some people just like pain more than others...

Dude your crazy but fucking awesome all at the same time. Mad respect to you man. If you could send me an Email to let me know if it was worth doing and If you recommend it. I'm always looking for some radical shit to do to myself. The email is: bigmac46290@gmail.com

look i love piercing of pretty much every type, i currently have 7 in the ears, my hips, nval, and web pierced. but this is just.. horrid. it looks so painful. i mean i know you started out small then moved up but some things just shouldnt be pierced.

megan said...

what the fuck is with everyone saying that they're so fucking origional for stretching their goddamn ears. You know people think thats gross too, but the only reason you all do it is because everyone else says its okay or "origional" what a load of shit. Granted this piercign is a little bizare, but no one is making you do that, him having a whole in his leg is not hurting you. An im sure if all your gay ass little frineds ran out and pierced their ankles that you would do it too!

That's pretty nasty. Why would anyone get a piercing like that???

Operador Arconexo said...

sick

Anonymous said...

the 15 year old is right: this person IS mentally disturbed, good for you and your clear thinking.
By the way: this is no more a mutilation than the other piercings. In the eye of an psichiatrist is the same thing. The size, position and number of piercings gives only the scale of the problem. Anyway, it's better to communicate to others that it's not all fine with you than trough violence or stuff like that. GO MAKE A PIERCING TODAY! :)

YUCK. I'm sorry, but that's sick.

Crap, that must have hurt. You are stupid, weird, crazy, and how do you wear pants in the winter dude? Did you do that just to get attention or because you just wanted it? Do you have any more leg-rings, or just this spike one?

Anonymous said...

EWW, what kind of attention was he trying to get? im not impressed and taking by the comments nor is anyone else get a brain! Not only is this retarded but its also completely disgusting!

its is obv that people like this are fucked in the head, i would've loved to known what he was thinking to even want to get this done!?
does he even have friends? did they not try to stop him? or maybe they're just as fucked in the head as this fucking mentally disturbed person.

this makes me cringe... sorry.. it just does

Anonymous said...

personally, I think that this is amazing.
sure, it may have some medical dangers, but it's what he wanted to do. piercings are a way of self-expression, so if this is who he wants to be, I respect him for that.
there is no "normal" in this world, we all like the things we like for our own reasons.
so cudos, man. you're my idol :)
who gives a f*** what other people say.
good job :D

Anonymous said...

This gives me the chills imagining having this!
I agree its kinda out there..
But I give him props for doing this!!

And wtf are you people talkin bout? yall givin him and PROPS and shit? yay think of that if yall were (atleast) adults if your kid asks if it can have a piercing like that?!!

It never ceases to amaze me just how narrow minded and judgemental people can be... And that you'll drag in a bunch of unrelated value judgements about what you THINK "MUST" be true about this guy.
i.e. That he must have mental problems, or have no friends... I know I wouldn't be interested in having a bunch of judgemental bigots like yourselves as friends.
It's his body, not yours, and not any of his friends to dictate how and what he does to it!
Add to that, he's one of the most unique, considerate, wonderful people that I have ever had the honour to call a friend... He may be a little weird, but that just makes us love him more... :)

Jerem Wil said...

I actually had one of those piercings for a while. You'd be surprised how soon you gain full mobility. Although mine was only a 10g... I had to take it out for a job, but I plan on getting it redone. Doesn't hurt a lot and I love how it looks.
