As the world continues to open up, I wanted to point out that piercing and tattoo shops have been posting guidelines that are in place to keep us all safe. Here are a few of the things to expect:
Today's topics: - These rules/guidelines/regulations are different in every state and every shop! Try to find your shop online before you head out - they will more than likely have posted their personal guidelines on their social media. - You'll probably still need to wear a mask and thoroughly sanitize your hands as you walk in the door.
- Be prepared to head to your appointment alone - the exception to this rule may be if you are a minor in a state where parent/guardian supervision is required. - There may be restrictions on piercings that would be below a mask, like lip rings, tongue rings, or nose rings. - Many shops are operating by appointment only! Due to social distancing guidelines, waiting rooms may not be open and walk-ins might be turned away for safety.
Since oral and oral-adjacent piercings might be off the market for some individuals, I wanted to take a minute to talk about a lesser-known piercing. The Flat is a cartilage piercing located in a unique spot in the ear. It's right below the upper ear rim where you'd have an industrial or helix piercing, and not quite far enough over to be a snug or daith. It's just one more way to make your ear set up all the more unique. This latest blog is called "The Flat: What You Need to Know About this Cartilage Piercing." We post fun new blogs every week - make sure you're checking back all the time to get the latest in pierced/modded content. Beyond the potent skin stuff, we've got a huge collection of kitschy pineapple-themed jewelry - nothing says summer better than a juicy set of pineapple treats for all your pierced and modified pleasures. Last but not least, it's a bit early in the season for them, but there's nothing more stunning that a sunflower in one of your mods. These yellow beauties are always a statement and look great on just about anyone. Check all our collections out above.
It's not *officially* summer yet, but that doesn't mean we won't be spending lots of time in the sun over the next few months. It's really important to protect your skin when you're out and about, and there's no better way than with a powerful Vitamin C serum. A regular application of nourishing and skin-smoothing serum is an excellent idea - we recommend our Christopher David Vitamin C Serum. Not only will this powerful stuff keep you moisturized and protected from UV rays, putting this on before a vibrant, sunny selfie is gonna help your good side look even greater.
YO! Don't forget about my Saturday "advice" column! I'm always looking for new pierced/modded questions to answer. Y'all know The Tea is where I talk about whats on MY mind every week, but I want to talk about what's on YOUR mind! Who knows, you may be having the same issue as another body mod enthusiast. Do you or your friend have a piercing-related question? SEND IT IN, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Alley's got your back :).
