A shop recommendation, and my undying love for your blog!
STATE (and city): Rochester, NY
Name of the shop and the artist you dealt with: Dorje Adornments (And they have a tumblr! Follow, follow!) and I was pierced by Nick
What you had done: Scaffold/Industrial
WHY you’d recommend them: It healed PERFECTLY except for the usual scaffold bar issue. I swapped it out for two short pieces and it’s doing just fine, and soon the long barbell will be back in my happy, healthy hole :) Nick is an absolute teddybear, a very kind person who knows his stuff (I got a bro-hoof from him because of my Brony shirt! Bronies unite!) I give his shop info to EVERYONE I know from school who wants any sort of piercing. and as soon as my best friend turns 15 (I’ll almost be 17 when that happens… i feel old, despite only being 16) me and her mother are going to take her there for her nostril piercing :)
And now, why i love you, awfulmods. Thanks for supplying me with the resources to do everything right. Thanks to you I knew what to do when I grappled with the bump on my scaffold, how to stretch my ears properly (still on a 14g, but proud of it because I’m goin’ slooooooooow!). You helped me realize it wasn’t my fault that my earlobes went mad after I got them done at Claire’s as a little kid, I had all symptoms associated with the gun and alcohol… So now, I have money in my “pro piercing account” jar for my second holes, with a needle, no guns! Wish me luck today on getting my conch pierced. I love you all, awfulmods moderators and fans <3 Keep doing the awesome stuff y’all do. <3<3<3
