While scrolling through Facebook today I saw these pictures and some background behind them from our friend/APP member Paul King

You probably recognize this man, German actor Udo Kier

Paul wrote, 
These altered images are from a 1993 Greg Gorman photo shoot of Udo Kier.

The photographer wanted Udo to have “play piercings.”

He meant “fake” piercings…language matters :)
 

When they arrived on location at Gauntlet L.A., I was able to explain to Udo and Greg the importance of authenticity for these images.

Udo took it like a champ!”

Why are many piercers hesitant to post their prices online?

Because just saying a piercing costs $X doesn’t fully explain what you get for your money. Let’s break it down. 

Piercer A: 

  • Has a medical grade autoclave that cost thousands of dollars. And they pay hundreds of dollars to have it tested and monitored to make sure it works correctly.
  • Attends training conferences and/or completed a quality apprenticeship to be sure you are getting pierced safely. Understands anatomy, cross contamination, sterilization, aftercare, and troubleshooting.
  • Uses only high quality jewelry to be sure you won’t have an allergic reaction to cheap materials. Takes the time to explain your options and gets you the best possible fit for your anatomy and lifestyle. 
  • Performs your piercing with a quality technique to be sure you have a healthy and happy piercing. Understands the theories behind the piercing you selected, and knows how to explain the aftercare best suited for it.
  • Charges $75 for their services

Piercer B:

  • Bought 100 belly barbells out of the back of a magazine. Not sure what its made of or who made it, but hey its cheap.
  • Totally “certified”, not sure by who. Can’t verify any training, you don’t see any training certificates anywhere. Asked how long they’ve been piercing and they said “years”. A tattooer friend showed them everything they need to know.
  • Didn’t tell you how to clean it, but that’s ok. You  already have peroxide at home. When you called with a problem they told you its probably just infected, and to just put some ointment on it.
  • The clamps hurt pretty bad, and it bled a lot. Its pretty straight though, if you look at it just the right way. 
  • Only charges $30!! What a deal!

See where I’m getting at? When you ask someone how much a piercing costs online you’re not comparing something static like the same shoe at different stores. I don’t like to answer price questions online because its part of a greater conversation. So how about instead of asking how much something costs, you ask what you get for your money.

Hi, i know you probable get this question alot but I cannot find the answer in the posts you already have. I was just wondering what is the best thing to use on my dry lower navel piercing (which I have had for almost 4 weeks now.) Whenever it gets dry I use H2Ocean but I was wondering if there is anything else I could use. Also should I be worrying that the skin around the bottom hole seems to be peeling? Thanks.
foxlabyrinth foxlabyrinth Said:

safepiercing:

Well, H2Ocean is a sea salt spray. Salt dries things out. See where I’m going with this? Why is that your pick for an already dry piercing?

If your skin is dry enough to peel then you’re using the wrong cleaning product, or using it too frequently. I would say stop using it altogether for a few days and you’ll most likely notice an improvement. Try just rinsing it with water in the shower and nothing else for now. I see this problem all the time and I think its because many piercers spend too much effort selling a product rather than explaining the healing process. No matter what the product is you need to use it correctly. In this case excessive use of an aftercare product is most likely causing the dryness, or at least contributing to it. 

In the future it helps to rinse excess salt off with water after cleaning or soaking a piercing, this will help prevent over-drying.

Would you recommend using vitamin e oil on a new piercing? Ive heard it can help prevent hypertrophic scars.
foxlabyrinth foxlabyrinth Said:

safepiercing:

No, oils are not appropriate for a new or unhealed piercing. I think you’re worried about treating scar tissue that doesn’t exist yet. Don’t try to prevent scar tissue by putting oil on a new piercing, that might actually cause healing problems which lead to scarring. The way you prevent scarring is by getting your piercing performed well, wearing high quality jewelry, and taking care of it correctly while it heals. 

Oils are for healed, but dry, piercings.

Is 316l surgical steel good stuff?
foxlabyrinth foxlabyrinth Said:

safepiercing:

316L is a common steel grade for lower cost body jewelry made in Asia and would not be considered acceptable for use in initial piercing by APP standards. 316L steel is a material more commonly referred to as “surgical steel” which is actually in reference to surgical tools, and not implants or items meant to be worn under the skin. 

Association of Professional Piercers jewelry standards would require steel used for initial piercing to be ASTM F-138 implant certified. Meaning it is tested and certified as being safe to wear under the skin

My only question: WHY IS IT BLACK OH MY GOD

It’s great that you reblogged my photo but do you have to be so rude? Vagina’s come in all different shapes, sizes and colors.  Why do you have to be judgmental over the female anatomy?  Please refrain from making negative comments about my clients bodies.  You never know who might see this picture and what negative self image issues you may perpetuate!  Vagina’s are amazing!  They are the gateway to life and should be treated with respect no mattter their shape, size or color!  

Vulva* :)

Vaginas ARE amazing!
