Do you ever feel like quality jewelry is too expensive? I'm a college student and barely make enough to pay for my books, I don't know how I'm ever expected to afford a piercing with those prices.

No I don’t feel that it’s too expensive. If anything it’s pretty affordable to have a hand polished piece of jewelry with a lifetime warranty. 

In regards to the entirety of the pricing, you’re also paying for a service. That payment is both feeding a piercer and the business that employs them, to keep food on their table and also profit towards a small business.

You don’t need that piercing, you want that piercing. I want a lot of things, I also work hard to make money to pay for the things I want. If college is your top priority, then do college for now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. If you want extra money to pay for things, get a second job, maybe tutor an underclassman, sell some things you don’t use anymore.

I mean absolutely no offense saying this. But as a piecer, I care about doing my job right, not what your income situation is. That means properly executing a piercing and using quality jewelry that is properly suited for your body.

P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.

SOMEONE SAID IT

These two keys mean more to me than most will ever know. They’re for my new home and my new studio. I’m proud of myself. Of the work I’ve put into being the best I could possibly be. Of never settling for mediocrity. Of pushing myself and my skills as hard as I possible could. Of the support I’ve received from my close friends. The ones who helped push me. Not the ones who themselves have no want to grow or be better. I’ve worked my fucking ass off these past couple years all in hopes to get where I am. And here I am. At an amazing studio with amazing friends and coworkers. In a new house out of the rut I felt stuck in. I’m a fuckin Atlanta resident. On track to being an APP certified piercer. On my grind to continue to grow, learn, and feel even more accomplished. Stay on your hustle, never settle. Love you guys. #AtlantaResidents #ProfessionalPiercer #Champion

71 - Craving = Playing some GameCube. It was Thai food but I got that on lock.

133. Favorite lyric = “they don’t love you, like I do.. But I don’t know you like them.. They don’t love you, like I do. They love you better. I know you best”-ETID

148. Favorite quote = “What do I want to be remembered for? The guy who really tried to hit it right out of the park, or at least swung as hard as he could. And maybe the miss was as cool as the few times I hit, just ‘cause the swing was so damn hard. Not necessarily graceful, but really hard.” -Henry Rollins
