gold gold shaved head and glasses

Check out these gold earrings Lori Leven found and brought back from India. I bought them for Mia's birthday last year (2009) from...yep you guessed it, New York Adorned. Aren't they pretty? Mia is also wearing a 10 gauge 18 karat yellow gold "seamless" ring in her septum. Looks so good!

My friend Autumn Swisher just put out a photography zine, DIY style. I'm not sure how many she printed but its really fucking cool. She hand sewed the bindings and all. Maybe email her and ask her how to get one.

i must not fear

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. -Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear, "Dune"

central amreican fruit

If i remember right the Ticos refer to this fruit as a "Chinese Sucker". If you peal its skin there is a fruit similar to a grape inside.

wihelm reich

Anyone that knows me half well could tell you that i am obsessed with "mad scientists". With that understood, I want to share with you the story of Wihelm Reich, because i find myself fascinated by his work. He is one of the greats that history has choosen to ignore and forget. Reich was a psychiatrist who went on to discovered a energy force in humans and nature. Click the link to learn more.

brad stevens

I had to go all the way to Spain to meet Brad, who randomly lives on the same street as me just a few blocks over. Funny how those things happen. Brad is originally from Syracuse, Ny and now works with Dare Devil Tattoo and Fun City Tattoo in New York City. Brad gets around so don't be surprised if he is in your country soon tattooing you. Enjoy!

clients point of view

This is a review a client (suzan y) wrote on yelp about her piercing experience. i have the best clients in the world. thank you, thank you, thank you! enjoy...

After getting a cartilage piercing with a gun, my noobish, cheap decision was filled with regrets as I knew I would get that scar and that in the end, nothing amounts to a needle piercing. And if I'm going to spend the money why not get it from a pro from a true blue place, not some shady piece of sh*t from St. Marks.

Plus I looked through all the reviews on yelp seeing if I could find one on an industrial and sadly I did not. However I went in there today, hoped for the best, got my industrial and.. COLBY IS THE F***ING MAN! My industrial hurt like crazy for the second piercing, which is to be expected, but it was doable and wasn't as bad as it could have been. He's really nice, CLEAN (answers all your questions, let's your friends hold your hand) and won't even give you one of those snobbish kind of attitudes. And when I told him about my retarded cartilage (gunned) piercing he didn't say anything about it and just told me how it would get in the way of my industrial so I took it off.

Also you can't beat the price at 20 dollars per hole pierced. It is the jewelry that's more expensive though so it evens out compared to other places (but that's only for basic jewelry). Total with tax my industrial was 76 (plain barbell), not bad at all since I know some other places charge 80-90.

Go to him. You'll love him forever! Deft coming back for getting my tragus and rook, probably won't hurt as much since it's just a one-time piercing, not two.

Catrina Mcdaid-Kelly "Cats"

Many of you who have been pierced by me will recognize "Cats". She is the lovely British woman that charms you into buying hundreds of dollars of beautiful jewelry.
Time Out Magazine (New York) just added Catrina to the "most stylish New Yorker" list. Click the link to read the article and see more pictures.
