Embrace Chaos Suspensions
About Us

Embrace Chaos is an artistic directive of human connections that uses suspension to facilitate life-changing experiences and document the beauty contained within them. We create moments in space in which the human body is free of the bonds of gravity and is in its most vulnerable yet powerful form. The act of suspension is a physically painful and emotional event that conveys the essence of the suspendee’s experience. At its core, Embrace Chaos is the collective experience of suspension artists around the world creating memories and bonds that last a lifetime.

Chaos on the Cliffs with Threshold Suspensions

Aug 15 2017

The first weekend of August, Southern California gifted us with beautiful weather and we wanted to take advantage of it. We work closely with another suspension team based out of Santa Barbara named Threshold Suspensions run by Josh Parkhurst. Embrace Chaos and Threshold converged upon the cliffs at San Pedro and began setting rig points in the trees, setting up piercing stations, and had the first body in the air at noon.

Ink Master Season 8 Finale

Ink Master Season 8 Finale

Dec 08 2016

https://embracechaos.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/InkMaster.mp4 Dave Navarro and the Producers of Ink Master asked us to fly to New York in December of 2016 to suspend Dave for the Season 8 Finale. Due to the actual likelihood of the network letting the suspension be aired, it was kept under wraps what we were there to do. Everyone on set was very professional and were very helpful. That lead to the suspension being nice and relaxed, giving Dave the opportunity to work the audience a bit while on hooks and...
