Live Flesh Suspension/Ramona Main Stage

In this day and age of multiple piercings, body modifcation with sub-cutaneous inserts such as horns on the head or spherical bumps under the skin in various areas the body, you might think hanging from a thin metal wire with hooks in the body would be a bit more common place than it is. Here in Southern California, where you have a very diverse population as well as being very active, people here have been known to do almost anything that might be considered dangerous and to stretch the limits of the mind, body and spirit. So then why is it Live flesh suspension seems to be such a taboo thing, most people have never seen anything like this done and there are very few who risk their bodys to this particular activity, much less do it for public view. Well, until now, our very own Ryan Brink is no newcomer to pain. He has tattoos over 40% of his body and has multiple piercings, but nothing he has done could prepare him for his first suspension, the experience is one of nervous anxiety coupled with pain culminating into a weightless feeling of euphoria as he was lifted into the air. Suspended by four large shark hooks in his upper back, his 6'3" 200 pound body stretched the skin on his back to it's tearing point and began to sway back and forth much to the amazement of the crowd. This October 29th he will be doing it again in front of a sold out crowd at Ramona Main Stage during his band Atropals Debut show, Ryan believes that his endurance of pain is well worth it, his band Atropal will do their very best to entertain, but adding any dramatic affect to a show can only make it that much better. Tickets are on sale thru www.ramonamainstage.com or you can contact Jim @ 760-715-4479 for more info.

There are those who say "There is nothing the mind cannot overcome" we have yet to fully understand how the mind can tune out pain at any level. Yet we see it time and time again, people putting themselves thru (some would say) crazy situations where they would self impose pain on themselves, pushing the limits of what the human body can handle. This is the same as any person trying to achieve a new level of human achievement, the drive and determination that is required to do something only few have or in some cases no one has done is to most people incomprehensible. But to some it is the only option, to push themselves further then they have gone, to reach a new level of conciousness and to reach the personal

goal they have set for themselves. This is our goal in our music as well as our life, there are no limits, no boundaries and especially no rules when it comes to art and we will explore every aspect of it. This life is ours as we live it and there is nothing out of reach.
