SUSPENSION OR HOOK HANGING

Try the ritual at the Hell suspension workshop for yourself

Suspension, or hanging on hooks, has its origins in the ancient history of mankind. Hook hanging is different in every culture: a rite of passage, meditation, a way to achieve an altered state of consciousness, overcoming fears, a libation to the gods, a tool to get to know oneself better. The most famous rituals with hooks are those of the Indian tribes in North America, which are called Sun Dance or Okipa. In India, there is the Charak Puja festival.

The way we practice hook hanging in our country is based on the traditions of modern primitivism. We focus more on the experience of the suspension itself than on its spiritual dimension. Suspension is also an integral part of Hell Party.

ABOUT HOOK HANGING

  • The hook extends only to the skin. It never passes through the muscles.

  • The steel hooks we use are specially shaped and modified for smooth skin penetration.

  • The hooks are always sterile, we work in sterile gloves and pay attention to hygienic conditions.

  • The skin is very firm and elastic, so there is no risk of tearing out the hook.

  • The small holes left by the hooks will heal in a few days. Only small scars will remain after them.
