Work, and the Space in Between
This ear belongs to the delightful Cara who drove 6 hours to get these piercings! The Ares with a tiny 3 bead accent, and a matching crown set dark blue opal all in 14k white gold.  We matched the lobe piercing on the other ear as well, and even installed a pretty Lakshmi ring for her healed helix piercing above that. She came a long way, and wasn’t going to pass up a chance to get all the jewelry she had be dreaming about! I love seeing well coordinated jewelry ensembles  come together like this.  (Thanks to dansteinbacher for snapping this photo for me!)

I positively adore this. The look of well planned large scale asymmetry on the body does it for me every time.

hey cj! I was wondering how you feel about little ear piercing projects. Do you like having the freedom to do whatever you like on the client, or is it just not your thing?

I am always happy to help a client make their dreams a reality, but I will jump at the chance to play ‘architect’ if someone asks :p

I love to focus on planning an ear around unique anatomy, as well as working for versatility. It’s a lot of fun to design projects that can be worn with different jewelry and create a completely different look. I also enjoy helping people plan jewelry collections- Finding pieces that will coordinate well and make a statement together :)

Yeah……I probably should get this……

I live in a relatively small state/town and I'm not sure how to find a shop that carries quality jewelry. Can you help me? I live in Concord, New Hampshire if it's any help.

You are in luck! The fantastically talented Ryan Ouellette is in Nashua, NH not too far from you. He owns Precision Body Arts. You can look him up on Tumblr, facebook, etc and you will find plenty of examples of his work and jewelry selection. Happy piercing!

I already have my nostril pierced and I'm interested in getting another nostril piercing on the same side. However, most double nostrils I see are performed in one sitting. Is it going to cause complications if I add another after my first one is already healed? Is the placement different? My piercer lives a while away so I thought I would consult you before driving all that way.

Strangely, I’ve actually done much more second nostril piercings on people than pairs in the same sitting, so I don’t think it’s necessarily uncommon to do it either way.

Sometimes this will limit some placement options, but it depends entirely on where your first piercing was done, how your nostril is shaped, and what kind of look you want/the jewelry style you prefer. I think you should be ok- even with the most challenging placements and anatomy, I’ve been able to come up with a way to make it look good when adding a second piercing. You are welcome to send close up photos of your nostril if you want ideas!

I’m sure @handpoketattoos expected me to see this and love it :) Bryan did this tattoo for a gal last weekend to match the tattoo her rescued rabbit had in it’s ear. This makes me happy <3 #handpoketattoos #bunstagram #markofthebeast

I love this rose gold sunray with moonstone almost as much as I loved piercing this gal.  She came into the room, laid back on the table with her arm draped back over her head and said &#8216;Pierce me like one of your French girls.&#8217; My clients are hysterical :) #safepiercing #saintsabrinas #rosegold #goldbodyjewelry #nostrilpiercing #piercing #bvla #mpls  (at Saint Sabrina&#8217;s)
