This is a perfect example of why you should NEVER speak poorly about another in your industry. The owner of this studio is an individual that I have admired and looked up to as a piercer for many years, and I have only had positive interactions with them in the past. This is not the first time that this allegation has come up from a potential client, which is highly upsetting for me. As of now, all client referrals to this piercer’s studio end immediately.
Let your work speak positively.  Don’t let you opinions speak negatively.

Perry , hit the nail on the head. Seriously in life, even if you’re not fond of someone or something, be a mature adult and keep it to yourself. My grandfather used to say ” when you see two people arguing, unless you’re one of the two, you look wrong to everyone else”

Amen. This sucks.

Not that any of this is my business but it’s integral to not make any assumptions until you confront the person. An anon message on tumblr should hardly be the last straw.

Thanks for your concern,
willin0ise
, but it is not yours to worry about. I’ve been hearing with this allegation for a while now. The point of this is not to single out this studio, hence the censorship, but to remind everyone that your comments go a lot further than your studio’s front door in today’s world. In a nutshell, speak cordially or shut the fuck up.

Very good lesson for everyone here!

Whaaat! I thought you were older than that!

Same.  Maybe it’s perrymdoig's superb facial hair skills that's throwing us off.

Truth is, years of abuse to my insides when I was younger took a toll on my appearance. Drugs age people. It’s the truth. It’s not just a scare tactic for D.A.R.E. posters.

Uh I don’t think “Don’t do drugs or you’ll look like me, kids” is a very effective tactic here…

Offhand, no.  Try checking with Kyle:  rats-in-the-walls

NinjaFlower and Absolution!

Dayna at The Tattooed Heart (Auckland) too! :)

I have personally been pierced by Scott at Ninjaflower (Wellington) and its a BEAUTIFUL shop, and Scott is amazeballs and I’d recommend him to absolutely anyone. (And like if you’re visiting Wellington and you like beer you should visit Little Beer Quarter around the corner from Ninjaflower because that place is the fucking bombdiggity!).

Eden and Daniel at Absolution (ChristChurch) are both wonderful people and great friends, and both are hella committed to the highest standards possible.

Yes hello I’d like to talk to you about Moon Prism Power…

I got this 18k moon for my third eye but it totally didn’t work, so whatever vertical philtrum is good too, hey?

My face is kind of a hot mess of different companies, so let me list them.. My septum and cheek jewellery is by Body Vision, my nostril pieces are by Neometal, my third eye and vertical philtrum pieces are by Anatometal, and my labret was made by Tam Gannon.

My piercings themselves were performed over the years by Vogue peeps Lori (third eye, cheeks, vertical philtrum), Sana (double nostrils), and Warren Hiller (septum). My labret is by Scott at Ninjaflower in Wellington, NZ.

Can we talk about how on point their everything is?

Thank you, tumblr person! :) <3

PS: Thanks everyone for your lovings and likings and rebloggings of my stuff (‘specially my face!). <3 You’re all wonderful!

It is truly magnificent facial hair, if we’re being honest!

The following isn’t an attack on any of the people you mentioned specifically…

Here’s the deal. Sutures, anesthetics, that kind of stuff… it’s surgery. As far as I know, no body modification artists are licensed surgeons. That doesn’t mean these “heavy” practitioners can’t be safe, or knowledgeable, but it means laws are being broken when they execute procedures on people. That’s all fine and dandy, really, if both parties are aware of the risks - largely that the practitioner doesn’t have the ability to really and truly “fix” things that might go wrong (prescribing medication, malpractice insurance that would cover hospital visits, etc.).

I really don’t think many people who offer these procedures are telling this to their clients - sure, some do, but a lot don’t. This promotes the mindset we see of “OMG, so and so is in town, I’m going to get my _______ split / removed / altered / reversed”, and not “OMG, I’m spending tons of money to have someone who most likely didn’t complete college do surgery on me, and if something goes wrong, I’m on my own!” I know people with irreparable damage to their bodies from people who didn’t know how to say “I shouldn’t do this.” Clients of these practitioners think what they’re doing is a step cooler than tattoos and piercings, and feel pressured from their peers and role models to be more “extreme”. Cool points don’t cover hospital bills though.

I think the piercing industry has a habit of elevating the people who offer these procedures to a really high status, and I think that encourages people to view being a professional piercer as a stepping stone to being an underground surgeon. For every person out there I personally might trust to do these procedures on myself, there’s dozens of others solely out to make money and seek fame who are hurting people. It scares me that if I wanted, I could buy all the medical supplies I’d need to do an implant online far easier than I could buy the supplies to do a piercing with industry standard jewelry. It saddens me that people contact me all the time asking me to point their ears / do their implants / whatever when I have never even alluded to offering those procedures. I could easily just start doing this stuff, with no idea what I’m doing, and people are already lined up to give me money for it.

The most scary thing is that A LOT of the people offering this work shove it in the public’s face via social media, and because these people are “body piercers” in the eyes of government officials, when they decide to attack this stuff, they’re coming after ALL body piercers, not just the people offering this level of work.

I did this navel piercing yesterday with a lime green opal by ANATOMETAL. All implant-grade titanium, all jewellery guaranteed for life against defects! Can&#8217;t get any better than that!
