Sorry for the long wait between posts, folks! We experienced a very saddening hard drive crash a week ago! We lost a lot of great photos when the computer died, but I fixed it up a few days ago, and we’re back up and running smoothly. We’ve also been keeping ourselves pret-ty dern busy lately, so posting is something we have had very little time for. Awesomely enough, despite our spot of bad luck there are some very nice new things for you to look at!
This young lady waltzed in on a particularly yucky day! It was raining cats and dogs out, and she walked all the way to the shop to get some anchors below her navel. She expressed to me that she had wanted three navel piercings, but her navel was not suited for it. So, she wanted the anchors instead. This photo is from a week or so after the initial piercing. Please excuse the bruise!
Most people seem to be under the impression that ear lobes are easy to pierce! This is not true, ladies and gents! In fact, ear lobes can sometimes be trickier than the more “advanced” piercings, because it is so easy to recognize a discrepancy in angles when you view the lobe from the side. That said, we love piercing ear lobes here!
Mateo did this septum piercing last night on a young lady who came ahead of time to arrange an appointment with us. It went quickly, smoothly, and came out perfect as usual! Spot on!
Our friend Mark [aka Freshman] previously had his lip pierced by Mateo on one side in this same fashion. After removing the old piercings, he wanted to have matching scars on the other side as well. So, Mateo conjured up some magic and did identical piercings on the other side. He hopes to heal them and then remove them for a similar scarred effect on both sides!
Lastly, Mateo conjured up just a smidge more jedi force to put this incredibly cute and dainty little forward helix piercing on my left ear! I like it a lot. It’s so subtle, you can only just barely see it peeking out from behind my hair if you’re paying close attention, but the angle is perfect, and it was as painless as a cartilage piercing could possibly be.
IN OTHER NEWS!
Take note: This Halloween we will be giving $10 discounts to individuals who come in to the shop sporting some sort of Halloween costume!
Put yer heart into it! Real costumes only…no college students dressed as college students unless we can tell you made an effort!
We are also putting on a small Halloween Body Ritual Event! This will include play piercings and energy/flesh pulls! If you would like to attend, please keep in mind that this is a very intense and intimate experience. **If you are uncomfortable with visible blood, extreme body ritual, needles, or any related fare, please observe with caution and respect. Individuals exhibiting disruptive behavior, or negatively affecting ritual participants will be asked to leave.**
If you would like to participate in the ritual, please contact us as soon as possible by telephone or email:
So, I leave all you dear blog readers with those nice tidbits. I hope to return soon with more fancy things with which you might entertain yourselves for awhile. Take care!
