izzypoll said: First things first, love your blog. Everything looks fantastic and I so wish I could come be pierced by you guys. Unfortunately, I live in Chicago and have no idea who to go to for a reliable piercer. Do you happen to maybe have any recommendations in the area?? Thanks a bunch xx

Go visit my friend Johnny, he owns Native Rituals in Oak Forrest, IL. 

They have a fantastic selection of jewelry and great piercers on staff.

This brand new design from mayajewelry is simply stunning. 
"Tommahawk": Hand carved shell with 22k rose gold plating. 
No need for stretched lobes either, these fit in small ear piercings. 
Come get them before they’re gone! Last pair in stock.

We pierced our clients triangle a little over three months ago. She’s been healing wonderfully and stopped in for a new anatometal circular barbell we anodized bronze.Not everybody has the anatomy for a triangle piercing, but it’s awesome when they do. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they’re functional as well. Thank you so much client whose name I will not announce on Tumblr!

Silvia stopped in looking for something fancy, but she wasn’t quite sure what exactly she wanted pierced.

She chose her conch, which is shaped perfectly for this gorgeous anatometal cluster.

Swarovski Mint Green, CZ and Black CZ handset in implant grade titanium, anodized bronze.

Great choice, Silvia. Thank you so much!

These anatometal clusters are one of our favorites, and we have two left!

Swarovski CZ, Mint Green and a Black CZ all hand set in implant grade titanium. And they thread on to a single piece of jewelry.

Come bring us your ears so we can make them shine like no other!

This is Lauren’s helix piercing we did four months ago. She’s off to a great start with her healing. 
And her mint green/arctic blue/CZ anatometal captive gem cluster couldn’t be any prettier looking. 
Keep up the good work, Lauren! Thank you!

Sarah stopped in for a triple helix. 
She chose these graduating sized 14k gold domes. She also picked up some lovely pieces for her lobes and tragus. 
The end result is one fancy looking ear. 
Great choices, Sarah! Thank you so much.

Though we didn’t have the honor of piercing Caitlin’s septum, we did have the privilege of making it look absolutely stunning. Caitlin chose The Baronet from scyllafinejewelry. 14k yellow gold with genuine white topaz. A perfect fit and an incredible look. Thank you so much, Caitlin!

Sigrid was visiting from Southern California and stopped by for a helix piercing and some jewelry. Our apprentice Brittney walked her through the whole process and they chose this lovely anatometal cluster with mint green and CZ gems, hand set in implant grade titanium. Great job on this piercing Brittney. And thank you so much Sigrid for letting her do it!
