12. Uncommon Piercings: Nasallang

I especially enjoy it when an uncommon piercing request comes through the door. This piercing is called a nasallang, a combination or two nostril piercings and a septum piercing, pierced all the way through with one piece of jewelry. It can take some time to heal, but over-all it's a really unique piercing to have. I love how well the piercing suits this gentleman's face. This is the only piercing in the nose that I've done like this, and I'm extremely pleased with the end result!

11. A little update, and some cool piercings.

I've not been able to update due to my lack of a computer. The laptop I own had some problems, but it is all fixed now! Back to full updates, even photos. I promise to update more regularly!

It's been picking up here at the shop, and more unique things have been coming through the door. Here's a little of what I've been up to around the piercing world. :)

I've been doing a lot more piercing with clear glass jewelry lately. It's safe, durable, and most people can get away with them at work since it's technically a "hider" type of jewelry. Here's a lovely set of snakebites I did about a week ago. The glass is even more transparent than acrylic and looks more "invisible" once installed (since the acrylic is more yellow-ish).

This is one of the closer-to-the-eye anchors I've done. I think it's an adorable spot for a dermal anchor. She's obviously taken great care of this one. Here it is at about three months old.

Here's a cool one. I did this piercing over two years ago, and recently saw it again. Look at how very lovely and healed it is! It's a rare type of snug piercing, and I've also seen it called a ragnar. It's the only piercing that I've done like it.

I love doing fun oral piercings. Here's a scoop I did at about two weeks old. A scoop is basically a tongue surface piercing. It definitely gives the impression of venoms (two off-center tongue piercings), but without penetrating through the tongue.
