      Ritual Steel GREENSBORO

      Ritual Steel is a transformative ritual piercing event intended to provide a unique personal and educational experience that can result in a coming-of-age transformation, catharsis, and/or emotional growth.  Ritual Steel events are anchored on a modern flesh hook ritual supported by a workshop and social that help provide larger context, set intent, and alleviate fears or misunderstanding about body-based practices.   The workshop covers related historical body rituals, including the history of the hook pull from ancient origins to our variant for Ritual Steel.  Additionally, participants are given the opportunity to discuss their own intent for the upcoming ritual.  The social segment allows participants, piercers, and other event staff to meet, mingle, and ask questions.  On the day of the main event, participants are guided through the opening Ritual, and are then pierced in a manner of their choosing for their experience  While others piercings may be optionally available, a typical first-time participant will choose two hooks in their chest.    Once pierced, participants’ hooks are tied with a length of line and they are free to guide their own journey by increasing tension on their piercings to achieve a desired experience.  After several hours, a closing ritual is held and participants’ piercings are removed.     Flesh Hook suspensions will also be available on Ritual day.  If you desire to suspend, you must be present on Friday evening for a brief discussion after the workshop.  Suspensions will incur a $75 cash surcharge at the time of piercing.   This event will be conducted on the weekend of November 22-23, 2019 at VINTAGE EVENTS CENTER The Workshop and social will take place on Friday Nov 22 at 7pm, with Hook Pull and Suspension Rituals beginning on Saturday Nov 23 at noon (12pm).  Registration is available by clicking on “TICKETS”.  If you have any questions leading up to this event, please feel free to contact Duke at or Elwood at   FAQs  Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
