    Need some help! Anyone know how to track down a Piercing Artist in Austin, TX?

    Austin Foosters:
    This guy was doing mobile piercings last week at teenage parties last week on the SW Side of Austin. He pierced my 14 year old nieces tongue and it's not cool! If she was 18, it wouldn't be an issue, but she's a MINOR. I would like to find this guy....

    Perhaps the host/hostess of the party knows the guys number?

    I have alot of piercings myself, but this is not cool. Besides the obvious (body piercing minor w/o parental consent) AFAIK, mobile piercings and "piercing parties" are illegal in some places (depends on the health code).

    He's a pro, it should not be hard to track him down. Chances are he'd done this alot. Have you contacted the police?

    Check out www.bmezine.com and see if they have a way of tracking him down. There's a large body modification community there and one of them may know him.

    No self-respecting member of BMEzine will be doing what he's doing, but they may know him and want him to be fined. It's people like that which give many piercers a bad rep.

    Note: www.bmezine.com is NOT NOT NOT work safe.

    If it makes you feel any better, tongue piercings close up very fast when the jewelry is removed.

    I know, but unfortunately, he did it while she had strep throat and there is a little issue with post procedure infection.

    *flicks KT on fore head*

    Is her tongue getting infected or is it just swollen from the procedure? Use lots of listerine and have her suck on ice. No real eating for at least a couple of days. She can drink things like Carnation instant breakfast for nutrition till then. This is what they told my girlfriend to do when she got hers done and it got really swollen more than it should have.

    No Listerine! Use Biotene! It won't kill the healing tissue.

    Tom, you should take her to a doctor if her jaw and neck are hurting after the procedure...especially if she has strep throat. Opening up a wound to a strain of strep like that is bad...

    Oh. My bad. That's just what they told her. But if I recall, you have more piercings than she does!

    I second the Dr. suggestion. Don't know what is going on in her body or what he used to penetrate her tissue. Or if it was clean.

    She's going in the AM. My sister is taking her, at my recommendation. I'd do it, but I'm in Indiana, 1130 miles away!

    How absolutely revolting and unethical this particular piercer sounds.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    No worries! A lot of people use and recomment Listerine because of it's strong antibacterial properties. The problem is that the chemicals that kill gingivitis also destroy healing tissue and increase the chances of scar tissue forming. Biotene is much gentler, as it takes a different approach to oral cleaning. If I recall correctly, it even has some probiotics.

    Good on your sister for taking her daughter to the Dr tomorrow, Tom. It's time to kick some bad-piercer butt!

    Oh, BMEzine also has tons of information on how to find a good piercer, why people want piercings, etc. I think it's a good read for any parent or one who is in a position to look after those who aren't terribly responsible.

    No one has mentioned this but you may also be able to pursue charges or sanctions on the host of the party. In some places it is similar to hosting an underage drinking party. Where they provided the space for the "piercing artist" to provide services they may share some liablility. I'm not sure how far you want to take this but that may be a quick way to find this piercer. I bet some muscle on the host would cause him/her to roll on the "artist" right quick.

    Hey Tom - I'm in Austin. I don't do the piercing thing (and only have 1 tattoo that I got years ago) but I know some people who might know him. Do you have any info - a name or anything? Feel free to PM me if necessary.
