theenigmaticsquirrel said: Anatometal seems to be one of the best body jewelry brands - and from poking around online, has some really cute options. I'm researching for a VCH, I was hoping you could tell me the price of the curved barbells you use? Thank you!

Our jewelry varies in price depending on the material, gauge and what adornments the piece holds such as gemstones.
I’ll be happy to discuss pricing over the phone or in person. however pricing may be different for every studio regardless if they use the same jewelry companies.

Portia loves rose gold but she has plans to save up for a  nicer septum piece in the future, so we pierced her septum with a copper titanium ring to give it that rose gold look. Jewelry anodized in house by me.

it has the potential to, but doesn’t always affect every individual the same way.

The only answer is to find a reputable piercer closest to you and commit to the drive. Unfortunately the unqualified piercers in the world outweigh those who ARE qualified. It would be worth the travel  if you genuinely want the piercing and want it performed by a reputable, educated and experienced piercer.

As far as a consultation goes, find a piercer you feel comfortable with and maybe email them some photos of your anatomy. You can also look into the q-tip test. If the majority of the cotton on the end of a q-tip fits underneath of your hood, you’re more than likely an ideal candidate for this piercing.

I have some clients who travel 3-4 hours to visit me occasionally when they want something new because they know the quality that our studio and it’s piercers offer.

I had one client who wanted her VCH pierced by me but lives 3 hours from Lexington. She ended up getting her VCH pierced while on vacation in Florida. She was in so much pain 3 days later that she bit the bullet and drove to Lexington just so i could look at the piercing. It was performed too deep, it was crooked and with a low quality externally threaded navel barbell. The piercing was inflammed and painful and embedding. She removed it. And 1 month later, made  a second visit to Lexington to have it performed correctly.

She ended up spending 4x the cost of this piercing between gas for 2 round trips to Lexington, the poor piercing she received in Florida and the corrected piercing I performed for her later.  So i guess the moral of the story is… Not all piercers are created equal so don’t get pierced by just anyone. Support the network of APP member piercers available to you. You wont be let down.

invadernoda said: I would like to get my tragus pierced and I often listen to music(with headphones in) would you recommend me getting this piercing or should I my rook or my forward helix pierced?

I would recommend using a single headphone or ear bud during the initial healing of your tragus piercing, until you downsize.

The rook and forward helix piercings may not come in contact with ear buds but will still most likely receive some pressure from standard headphones.
