"Every time it's a new piercing and the wound heals really fast, it can heal in two weeks. I had hooks in my forehead and nobody can tell I had them." REUTERS/Antonio Bronic

"I watched a documentary (about body suspension) and when I saw it, I knew I had to do it," Helvida said. "It's very hard to explain (what it feels like). For me, it's releasing all the negative and bringing all the positive in." REUTERS/Antonio Bronic
