Here is a basic guide to selecting jewelry and what to consider when picking jewelry for your healed piercing. Often the focus at the time of piercing is on what is going to work well during the healing period but only a small amount on what is the best jewelry choices after the piercing has healed. I always try to cover what I consider is the most problematic jewelry styles and materials choices during my aftercare consultation but it's there is only so much that can be covered.
Well, I could spend time talking about the weather but instead how about a warm up in the form of a piercing special instead:
$10 off The Piercing of Your Choice
Between now and February 28, 2014, Come into the studio any time during normal business hours and mention the code word "Arctic Blast" and get $10 off the full price of your piercing.
I covered this in the former blog - I will pierce minors but .... a parent and child guide but recently I've been getting an increasing number of parents contact me asking if I pierce infants and small children. I'm not sure what is triggering this sudden surge but I felt that it might be best to write a blog on the subject. As a parent I understand the drive to not only fulfill all of our child's wishes but to do so in a way that is safe and health.
Back in the dark ages when the internet and whole concept of digital media was kept in the same bin as all the other science fiction, there was this business called the Record Store. Granted there is still a lot of them around but not nearly the monsters of the past and let's face it they aren't the center of the music world they once were. I'm sure the same kind of nuts own and run the places. A creature that is half mad, dumbly lucky at times and addicted to music. These odd fellows used to buy and sell records often without a single clue of their importance.
For years I've been involed in a debate with countless different people. The debate has been over the beaten to death question, "What is Punk Rock?" One of the easiest definitions that I've came up was, "It's music produced by people for themselves." The idea that regardless if one person understands or appreciates it, the art needed to be made and nothing was going to stop them from doing it.

Well it is a new year and a new month and that means it's time for a new special. So for January

Well, it's that time of year and I hope that all of you are having a wonderful time with friends and family during this special time of year.
With that in mind the Axiom will be open the following hours for the ramaining of 2013:
I haven't done one of these in June and the main reason is because I've been listening in a manner I haven't done in years. In my twenties once a year I would sit down and listen my complete music collection in alphabetical order. One of the main reasons I did it was to refresh my memory or rediscover something I bought and then overlook. Now don't get me wrong it was always a challenge, often filled with annoyance and speculation over why I had wasted my money on this record or that.
I figured I'd take a short break in my blog series, Beating Every Piercing To Death and focus on something that came up during a piercing I did last week. The client was talking about her last piercing experience and the rudeness of the piercer. This included a number of references to her bad breath and other insults. Also he gave the impression that he really didn't enjoy what he was doing and had more pressing matters to deal with.
