Burlesque Dancer’s Flaming Nipples Spark Evacuation

Ami Angelowicz / August 23, 2013

Hundreds of people were forced to flee a UK tattoo convention when a burlesque dancer’s flaming nipple tassels triggered the fire alarm. Go Go Amy, a member of the Pretty Things Peep Show, was performing her act which featured fire-eating and fiery nipple tassels, when the smoke emanating from her nipples set off the fire alarm, sending patrons running for the exit.

“They weren’t meant to use fire in the act but I think they just completely forgot … It was one of those priceless moments that people will be talking about for years. It was incredible how quickly the building was evacuated,” said the event organizer.

Ah, the power of flaming nipples. I will remember this trick next time I want to get hundreds of people to bend to my will. [Daily Record]
