Man Hangs from Hot Air Balloon Suspended Only by His Body Piercings

Zane Whitmore of Seattle was pierced through the flesh on his shoulder blades four times, and then hung from these piercings onto a hot air balloon. He floated around California’s Long Valley Caldera for seventy-five minutes, suspended ten thousand feet over the ground:

The stunt was part of a Portland film production company’s filming of a feature-length documentary called Feet Off the Ground. Planning for the hot air balloon ride took about two years.

“This balloon suspension is really the culmination of several years of immersing ourselves in the body modification and suspension communities,” Matt Morgan, co-founder of film production company Precarious Egg and one of the producers of the film, said in a press release describing the project.
