A bondage rigger is a person of any gender who practices the art of tying bondage, usually with rope.

Bondage riggers may participate in bondage for many reasons. These may include: as a form of BDSM or D/s play for personal enjoyment; as an art form, such as with Shibari or kinbaku; or as an enterprise for profit, by selling books, videos, or photographs.

Bondage riggers work with one or more rope bottoms or bondage models, or may tie themselves in a practice called self-rigging or self-suspension. Some rope bottoms and bondage models are accomplished bondage riggers themselves.

Responsible bondage riggers always follow the principles of RACK when rigging.[citation needed]
