Interesting. Thank god you didn’t pay for it. Also, I never said you did. Also, I watch the episode and got a look at the jewelry. After 23 years in the business, I know a crappy company surface anchor when I see one. So you might have been told that they were, but they were not high quality.
I think you bring up the price topic because you think we used it in reference towards you. It’s actually a greater concern for the general public. You didn’t pay for that, but rest assured, many clients all over the world do pay for projects like this. Projects that will mostly likely never work long term.
You need to realize that by taking the part that you did, you helped create an idea hat something like this is viable, when it isn’t.
Anonymous said: Opinion time! A large portion of the mod community has stretched lobes. Why do you think that is? Is it bc those people legitimately think it looks good, or bc they want to be taken seriously as modded people and stretching gives credibility? Maybe the appeal to the look comes from the fact that Buddhist god figures are depicted with stretched ears, and people want to emulate that as a form of worship? But most people with stretched lobes are not Buddhist... Give your musings on the matter? :]
I’d say it’s just because they like the way it looks. Having stretched lobes or not have no relation to being taken seriously in the mod community.
Anonymous said: hi luis! quick piercing-related question - is it a bad idea to downsize 16g cartilage piercings w/ 18g jewelry? i've had the piercings for 11 months now and i just wanted to make sure that there won't be any issues. thanks so much! :)
Different piercers will tell you different things. Personally I would keep them at 16ga. It’s sturdier and will handle the day to day jostling of the area better.
Anonymous said: I'm 16 and I paid for my own piercing and my piercer did a amazing job but I feel bad because I didn't tip. I only had a $20 or $1 left and one was too much one was too little should I feel bad? The piercing cost $64
Did you ask if they had change? I bet they could have broken that $20 for you.

It’s not that we hate it, but in an industry that already has an over saturation of piercers, it makes no sense to train more and flood it even more.
