Rocker Dave Navarro showed off his grisly new pastime to fans by posting photos of him engaging in the fetish act of suspension.

The Jane's Addiction guitarist shared snaps on his page showing him suspended topless from a ceiling by hooks that had been put through piercings in his shoulders.

Navarro engaged in the eye-watering activity in public for the first time on Wednesday (13Mar13) during V Society Hollywood's weekly gothic night at the Room 86 club in Los Angeles.

In accompanying tweets, he writes, "First public suspension tonight! Thanks for an amazing night! So fun!"
