Very NSFW Photos from the Suicide Girls’ ‘Blackheart Burlesque’ Tour

Founded in 2001 by photographer Selena Mooney, Suicide Girls began as an alternative online forum for models and photographers. The name, originating from a line in Chuck Palahniuk’s 1999 novel Survivor (“It’s the same with all these suicide girls calling me up”) represents women who commit “social suicide” — rebelling against society’s aesthetic and character norms The company vision includes enabling women to govern their own sexuality, while incorporating their modern interests and aspects of their personality. Choreographed by Manwe Sauls-Addison, the Blackheart Burlesque dance experience showcases a rotating cast of tattooed and pierced women in sexy cosplay inspired by the likes of Star Wars, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and Marvel superheroes. The funky-flesh phenomenon is filled with garters, pasties and various stage props. Hosted by Sunny and Katherine Suicide, the sensual show is a titillating thrill for the alternative community and anyone wanting to broaden their views on beauty and sexuality. Here's some of the best moments from their recent performance in San Antonio.— Kimberly Rivera
