Body Jewelry Collection & Organization

In this video, I show you how I organizer my pieces of body jewelry. I kinda show you the collection, though some is hard to see because the pieces are so tiny. I really need to declutter some of my jewelry too, I haven’t worn some pieces in forever!

This isn’t the organizer I have, but it’s close enough (if you’re interested): https://www.amazon.com/Accessories-Multipurpose-Organizer-Compartments-Removable/dp/B00UXZSVXA/ref=sr_1_57?keywords=craft+organizer+12+compartments+plastic&qid=1552272141&s=gateway&sr=8-57

Letting an Apprentice Piercing You, Should You? Body Piercing Basics EP106

#apprenticeship #piercing #DesMoines

In the 106th episode in our Youtube series Body Piercing Basics, DaVo talking about what you should consider and know before getting pierced by a piercing apprentice. 

Show Notes:

How long have they been Apprenticing?
How many of that type of piercing have they observed and done?
Do they have a set program?
How comfortable and confident does the apprentice seem?
Is the more experienced piercer supervising?
If the more experienced piercer needs to step in, will you still get the discount?
If the apprentice mess up and it needs re-pierced will they do it for free even if it’s done by the more experienced piercer?
Do you feel comfortable with the more experienced piercer making observations and suggestions during the piercing?

Apprentice Program:
Observation only for at least 4 weeks
10 piercings done on volunteers
Complete 10 of each piercing correctly
Monthly evaluation on how they are doing with the piercings they have checked out on.

Supervision
The more experienced piercer should be supervising during:
The marking of the piercing
The piercing
The jewelry insertion
They should give suggestions on how to refine technique, methods, and bedside manner
After the client leaves there should be a discussion about how the piercing went.

If you have a question you would like to see covered in a future video, please comment or contact DaVo at davo@axiompiercing.com.

Nostril Piercing Pros & Cons by a Piercer 2020 S02 Ep02

#Nostril #piercing #DesMoines
In Season 2 Episode 02, DaVo, a Professional Piercer since 1994, covers the Pros and Cons of Nostril Piercings.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment. 

Show Notes:
Pierced traditionally through the ridge of the nostril on the left or right side.

History

Dates back to 4000-5000 years ago when it was first recorded in the middle east

It’s mentioned in the bible through the translation was changed to earring, the original text refers to a nose-ring. Genesis 24:22

Has a history within the Indian Culture dating back to the 16th century

The Indian tradition is that the piercing on the right side makes childbirth easier

The piercing is also represented in the native tribes of Africa and North America

In modern time the piercing was heavily associated with subcultures including the counter culture of the 1960 but is more associated with the Punk Rock Movement.

Pros:

Socially accepted

A long history of healing easily

Not prone to rejection or migration

A large variety of jewelry styles

Enhances and draws attention

Cons

Effects employment or playing organized sports

Can not sleep on it

Can not wear makeup during the healing

Piercing can be prone to scarring

Jewelry will need to be oversize while healing

Things to look for:

The piercer should have experience with the piercing

The piercer should offer a consultation that involves aftercare, risks, etc…

The piercer should evaluate your anatomy

If you are planning on wearing a ring, they should discuss placement

If they pierce with a ring, the jewelry must be oversized

The Piercing Experience:

Pierced usually freehand with a small cork or Needle Receiving Tube supporting the tissue but can also be done with forceps

The piercing is usually very quick

pain may be throbbing or aching for a few minutes afterward

can bleed

will usually make your eyes water

Healing:

Average healing time is 8-12 weeks or longer

Saline twice daily

Must practice cross-contamination prevention and isolate and avoid any contact with the piercing.

First 3-5 you can experience slight bleeding off and on, redness/discolor, heat, and tenderness to the touch.
