pig mag

Much love to Rebecca Larsson Barsotti and PIG MAG.

"J. Colby Smith si trasferisce a New York 7 anni fa, dove inizia subito a lavorare come piercer presso uno degli studi di tatuaggi più rinomati della città, Ny Adorned. Si differenzia dai piercer standard ricercando la raffinatezza e non l’estremo; la sua estetica si basa sul motto “Less is more”, il suo obiettivo è quello di creare look delicati e belli; studia l’anatomia e lo stile di ciascuna persona cercando di soddisfarne le esigenze.
Questo aspetto lo ha portato a sviluppare gioielli come la catena per il setto, creata per un’amica che cercava qualcosa di elegante, facile da inserire e togliere senza richiedere l’aiuto di un professionista. J.Colby è il piercer più desiderato del momento specialmente tra attrici e celebrities."

"J. Colby Smith moved to New York seven years ago, he immediately begins to work as a piercer at one of the most popular tattoo studios in the city, NY Adorned. He differs from the standard piercer seeking refinement and not the extreme, his aesthetics is based on the motto "Less is more", his goal is to create looks delicate and beautiful, studying the anatomy and style of each person looking to satisfy their needs.
This aspect has led him to develop jewelry as the chain for the septum, which was created for a friend who was looking for something elegant, easy to insert and remove without requiring the help of a professional. J. Colby piercings are the most desired of the moment, especially among actresses and celebrities."

There was a few appearances of ear adornment on the runways this fall but only one worthy of mention. BRVTVS's golden ear cuffs, complimented Jason Wu's S/S 2013 perfectly. Delicate, refined and beautiful. Looking forward to seeing more from Caroline Ventura.

back drops

These are my latest conceptions, "Back Drops". They attach to a stud and drop from behind the lobe, giving an other wise stiff piercing a little movement and flow. Available exclusively at New York Adorned. I hope you love.

julia frakes

Julia Frakes and I had been trying to get together for a few weeks but somehow kept missing each other. I finally got her on my table last week along with the lovely Katherine Bernard of Vogue. I made some suggestions to Julia but she ultimately let me do as I pleased with her naked ear. We put a tiny rose gold pyramid in her conch and a delicate rose gold ring in her upper helix.
Katherine also let me freshen up her piercing we did for the vogue interview a couple of months back. We put a delicate rose gold ring connecting her 2nd and 3rd ear lobe piercings, then I spun a rose golden web of chain from the front to back of her lobe.
I have a feeling I'll be seeing these beauties again real soon.

Emily turned me onto this amazing song/video "oblivion" by Grimes. I think she is so adorable, she reminds me of Winona Ryder in Beetle Juice. Enjoy.

cabin porn

When my friend Sky told me about Cabin Porn, I expected something completely different. These are a few places I wouldn't mind calling home a few months out of the year. Who's with me?
