    JUNE 7: Professional piercer and body suspension expert Dino Helvida inspects Kaitlin, who is visiting Zagreb, Croatia, from the United States, as she hangs from hooks pierced through her skin. For the past six years, Helvida has been hanging up the bodies of those brave enough to partake, sometimes for hours, Reuters reports. The process is carefully done, and involves first piercing the skin with needles, putting through metallic hooks, which are then attached to a thin rope to lift the suspendee off the ground. "You can do one hook or you can do 100. You have different hooks for different positions and different hooks for different body parts," Helvida told Reuters. It took Helvida about an hour to prepare Kaitlin for suspension. Devotees say the practice gives them a huge sense of well-being, and Kaitlin did not complain of discomfort once.
