I love at work when I use crutches and regulars come in who have never seen me without my prosthetic and they do a double take, sometimes triple takes. The look of shock and confusion is hilarious. The funniest reaction from a regular was this:
Holy Shit are you okay?
Yea I'm perfectly fine!
You sure? They have you back working already?
I'm not sure what you mean.
I was here week and a half ago and you had both legs, so you don't you need time to heal and cope and adjust and everything?
Oh! No, I lost leg when I was 13. I'm fine!
But you had both legs a week and a half ago.
I had my prosthetic leg on a week and a half ago.
So you were missing you leg a week and a half ago when I was last in here?
Yes and every other time you came in. Just usually wear my prosthetic.
Well you gotta warn people. It's not nice to make them think you have all your limbs.
Finally able to finish a cigarette for the first time today since we have been so busy at work. I am so ready to go home. Annoying customers piss me off haha.
I’ve been working in this industry longer than you. I stay a part of the industry when I am not at work, unlike you who just sees piercing as a job. I don’t talking about wishing I could tattoo like you do. You know I know more about plugs and stretching than you do because you ask me questions about the different types ever since you got told by the owner that I know more about the jewelry and to stop advising customers about proper jewelry and stretching methods.
Therefore do not fucking argue with me about taping my plugs to help stretch. You are at like 2g. I am at an inch. You are seriously telling me electrical tape and “even duct tape” are better than bondage tape? Yes i know what bondage tape is for, but like most things in this world, items have multiple uses. Bondage tape has no adhesive. Bondage tape and ptfe tape are what is recommended. You would know that if you really cared about the industry and community and didn’t just see this as a job. You tell me to use a taper to get the next size in. You know there is like a 3mm difference in size and you are telling me to lube up an 1 1/8th inch taper and push it through my ear? I’d rather do it slowly, layer of tape by layer of tape, to prevent blow outs.
You also tell me I am using emu oil wrong? “That is it only meant as a lube on jewelry and not for the skin”? You seriously need to research before you open your mouth. And what do you do when I suggest books, websites and things to read up about proper jewelry, ways to stretch and emu oil? You tell me last thing you want to do when you get home from work is to read about anything piercing related. This industry is my life and I love it. How can you he so flippant about being part of this industry? Haven’t you noticed how you have no real regular clients and how when people see you piercing they say they will come back tomorrow? And you wonder why I won’t let you pierce me and I will never ever let you pierce me.
My new nostril piercing by @thefriction after we closed at work #piercing #bodymod #nose #work #me (Taken with Instagram)
Should I do it? Coworker wants to do it (urging me to do it) and he’s one of the best piercers we have. So what do you all think? Go for it or will it look weird with my septum?
Such a long day at work today. Working in a tattoo/piercing shop and looking different than the norm I don’t think a day will pass without getting stupid questions. Asked a stupid question before I even got into work, then got told by a customer that it is better to do a nostril piercing with a piercing gun and not a needle. What is it with teen customers who think they know more about my job than I do? So ready to be home with alcohol haha.
Today is going to be a good day!
Super slow at work. No one wants to get pierced! Since bored at work I decided to take photos of me and my latest necklace I made for my jewelry line, Cruel Blooms. It is a hand casted resin 3d human skull cameo :) They will be up on my Etsy after my show next Friday.
