    piercing question

    So i really want to get a surface piercing on the insides of my wrist about 6 inches up from my hands

    has anyone here had a surface piercing heal successfully, I had a girl at a shop today tell me that none last past three months and she was going to charge me 120 bucks. I havent had a chance to talk to anyone else about it. and more of my friends with holes in them seem to have mostly the same piercings.

    oh and does anyone have a vertical tragus?

    Straight up, the skin is to protect us from infection and piercing it increases the risk of Staph and Pseudomonis entering the bloodstream, which eat your heart valves among other things. In addition, there is the risk of contracting Hepatitis if the shop doesn't practice Surgical Sterile Field class sanitation. Just my thoughts, and you asked.

    Ignore the masses. I enjoy piercings (pre corporate job, had to make a decision but would go back in a second) and tattoos. I got my first piercing when I was 13 and continued there for several years. I never did any major piercing (in my opinion) but I had a lot of the ones that a decade later became popular. The only piercing left is a tongue ring which I intend to keep for as long as I care too.

    Personally, I have never had a surface piercing like the one you describe, but several of my friends had similar and its 50:50. The ones who really took care of them and didn't end up with a body rejecting the piercing then they were fine. But a couple had rejections (where the body slowly grows around the piercing pushing it out, this happened to my eye brow, which I guess is a basic surface piercing) and a couple did't take care of them and they got infected.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    And no...these piercing seem to creep me out for some reason. The idea of stretching brings into light why a lot of people can't handle tattoos. Its a disfiguration in an area where I don't want to be disfigured. I keep my tats private and my piercings public.

    You might want to post your question on the Tribalectic Body Piercing boards. They're extremely helpful about piercing issues.

    I will just say this. If you were an employer, would you hire someone walking in with tats all over and steel hanging from lips, nose, nipple, or wherever? Don't say you would hire on his qualifications, not his looks, because that is BS. Just what every S&P Company CEO wants representing them.

    To each their own I guess... but definitely not something for me. Peircings just dont appeal to me.

    For shipping/handling, assembly line and back room stuff, yes; but not if I can see the nipple ring.

    Some non-profits are not as discriminating about looks. Go to a convention of college financial aid officers and you'll see a minority with hardware, ink and atypical hair treatments.

    You're right, one is not likely to be selling real estate or hitting a lecture circuit or calling on clients unless s/he fits the image. Anyone with such career ambitions would do well to be tatted and pierced only where it won't show when dressed for work.

    Martin Luthur King, Jr. taught us to judge people by the content of their character.

    I wouldn't be so superficial that I would make assumptions. I would hire the best person for the job.

    That said, I wouldn't want to work for a company that has such soul-sucking, identity ripping smurfisms as an overwrought dress code and creepy Stepford Wives lockstep office culture again.

    I worked for three of the biggest companies in the game, and it drove me crazy being the man in the box.

    The money didn't make me happy. I needed to be my own creative self again. So I jumped.

    That said, get some tubes and tires. Cycling will alleviate your boredom, and won't give you an infection.

    I would never get a tat or piercing out of boredom.

    Yeah, that $120 you would have spent on the piercing will get get you pretty far getting your bike back in shape.

    The problem with surface piercings is that they're extremely, I mean extremely twitchy.

    Add to that the problem that the wrist area is very, very shallow and sees not only a lot of movement, but a lot of inadvertant bumping. Those will add up to an irritated, rejected surface piercing.

    Sorry, bro.

    That said, I've ridden to and from getting certain piercings stretched. No issues. Cycling is a lot more piercing friendly than fencing!
