This dudebabe, is Anthony Swift. Not only is he a rad dude, he’s one of the best roommates I’ve ever had. You can lurk him at @goatbagxvx. He surprised me last night and asked me to do his 12g Nostril piercings so his High Nostril piercings(done by @false_mrsa) wouldn’t be lonely anymore. He’s wearing some 4mm Black Onyx Cabs made by the always awesome folks at @anatometalinc(where he works!). Thanks for the surprise homie! It was a blast. #adamrichins #anatometalinc #anatometal #vaughnbodyarts #montereybay #monterey #mpc #santacruz #ucsc #nostrilpiercing #pairednostrils #nose #nosepiercing  (at Vaughn Body Arts)

Anonymous asked: A friend of mine started an "apprenticeship" at a really shitty scratcher shop. That was two weeks ago. She's being given her own booth/room by the end of the month and allowed to pierce on her own. She keeps asking to pierce me, and I keep politely refusing, and even explaining why and directing her to legit piercing pages full of info, but it's starting to drive a wedge in on our friendship because she thinks I don't trust her and I'm really not sure what to do at this point.

This may cone off harsh and if so, I’m sorry but I am incredibly biased when it comes to situations like this.

You aren’t letting them pierce you cause you don’t trust them. That isn’t untrue. You shouldn’t trust them. The basic facts are that nobody can learn any professional trade in a month. This specific trade involves working on other living beings and they are now going to be putting other people in a risky situation because they really want to be a piercer(and they have to know deep down that they are doing it wrong if you’ve shown them any basic info about being a body piercer). If it ruins your friendship then good riddance. If I became a car painter and a month in offered to paint by buddies classic car and he said no I should be adult enough to understand, and your body is more valuable than a car. So, their loss.

Also, show them this article my buddy Jef wrote…

Original list thanks to AJ. I made it clickable and added the rest that I can think of offhand. I apologize in advance to anyone who’s about to get a notification from this and anybody I may have left out accidentally.

I feel fortunate to still be (annoyingly slowly…) stretching my lobes when so many kids are sewing theirs up for one reason or another. I wouldn’t feel like me without big stupid holes in my ears.

Kylie stopped in to have Adam pierce her rook. She chose an anatometal curved barbell with a bezel set CZ gem accented with the cutest little dangling CZ gem below. Thank you, Kylie.
