Queue You: Dudes Adorned

So, recently my queue has brought you some piercing posts that I found interesting. Check the sources! They’re blogs I follow, who’s content I find particularly interesting.

I want to let you know that I’m excited about the next queue theme! It features a new series called Dudes Adorned.
I don’t know who of you pays attention to that stuff, but I try to do ten-post themes in my queue (see tags), and Dudes Adorned is one that I’ve been working on, featuring both body-piercing type jewellery, and photo-shoot type jewellery. I tend to wish more dudes were more fancy, so whenever I see photos featuring that sort of thing, I tuck them away for future postings. The themes help keep them from getting lost in the tumble. Enjoy! Queue posts around 1 am est.

(If you’re a dude I reblogged and you’re not about that reblog life, let me know and I’ll remove your photo.)

Anonymous asked: So what makes earlobes different from any other piercing? Why is lower-quality jewelry acceptable here but nowhere else?

safepiercing:

Its not that we’re saying lower quality jewelry is acceptable, just that it can be more easily tolerated in an earlobe. What we are saying is that earlobes with earrings are not exactly an argument we want to be involved in. The Association of Professional Piercers focuses on just that, professional body piercing. Earrings have been around for thousands of years, body piercings are a bit more recent. Even when performing an earlobe piercing an APP member will be using high quality jewelry, and will not be using a piercing gun. 

Earlobes, historically, have been able to heal and tolerate a multitude of materials. The way a lobe is built anatomically is essentially the perfect location for a piercing. A flap of tissue with decent blood flow, covered in hearty skin on both sides, relatively thin, with no musculature or regular movement. Once the body forms a fistula here it can stay open long term with mixed quality materials or even without wearing jewelry daily. 

This differs from body piercings which can pass through more complicated structures. Areas with internal cartilage like the upper ear or nostril. Areas with mucous membrane like the tongue or genitals. Areas with internal musculature like the lip. Areas that bend and stretch like the navel. These areas require higher quality materials for long term wear.

TUMBLR! I’m sorry, I’ve been ignoring you and mainly posting on my facebook page. Many new things these days! I moved the workshop into a slick loft downtown here, I’ve gathered the materials to start metal casting finally, and I’m working on my tan! I have some nifty new designs in the works that are keeping my hand real busy. More to come!
