How To Fill The Big Ugly Hole In Your Life — From A Piercing

How To Fill The Big Ugly Hole In Your Life — From A Piercing

 
 
ILLUSTRATED BY ANNA SUDIT

A few months back, I was stuck in an elevator with a conservative-looking woman. After about five minutes of pumping that red emergency button, we decided that if we were going to be trapped in a tiny box together, we might as well get to know each another — and, eventually, the topic turned to body piercings. Turns out, she and a friend had both gotten their belly buttons done years before, and while the jewelry (and the friendship) was long gone, a tiny dimpled memory remained on her navel. She’d like to get rid of it, but how? Well, stranger, this one’s for you. (We were eventually rescued, by the way…)

Whether you need to temporarily hide a piercing for a job interview or you’d like a permanent fix because sweet-Moses-what-where-you-thinking, you actually have many more options than you think. We asked a team of experts — including a dermatologist and two piercers with 35 years of experience between them — for their best tips on hiding a piercing, really making it disappear, or simply improving the look of a hole that’s scarred or migrated over the years.

Chloe Grace Moretz – New Piercing

Chloë Grace Moretz Unveils A Daring New Piercing On Instagram

Chloë Grace Moretz’s latest piercing is her most daring one yet. The 19-year-old actress added a chic ear piercing to her growing collection of studded jewels.

She revealed the edgy new piercing on Instagram, where she thanked her piercing artist as well as the custom jeweler who created the bling. Chloe was pierced at the famous Studio City Tattoo in Studio City California.

Hollywood tattoo shop

The 5th Wave actress is no stranger to piercings. She currently has four piercings in one ear, including two cartilage piercings, and one near her inner ear. She’s also added a bold septum piercing to her collection, according to Teen Vogue.

 

Apparently, her self-expression is all a part of loving herself. In a recent interview with Elle, Moretz said she is trying to keep her look as natural as possible.

“I try to break barriers,” she said. “I try to not post Instagrams where I Facetune my face and I wear a ton of makeup. I want to be as natural as can be. And I want to break it down for young women so they understand that you’re not just ‘born’ like this.”

 10 Best Tattoo Shops In Los Angeles

With the amount of tattoo parlors lining the streets of LA, sometimes the hardest decision isn’t the design, but the artist. Whether looking for a more traditional piece to cover a small section of skin or if you want to turn your body into a blank canvas and work on it like Michelangelo on the Sistine Chapel, these are the perfect places to get inked from Venice to East LA, what are 10 best tattoo shops?


Studio City Tattoo

10 Best Tattoo Shops-While a trip to the valley may not be the perfect way for a true Angeleno to spend some time, Studio City Tattoo is definitely worth the drive, especially if you’re looking to turn your body into a large canvas for your next masterpiece. Featuring ten in-house artists, customers can easily find something that fits their needs from the more classic designs to the well-known delicate feathers that artist Mike Erwin has become known for.best tattoo shops

Memoir Tattoo

10 Best Tattoo Shops-Opened by Kim Saigh and Shawn Barber in 2009, Memoir Tattoo is one of those places where you can’t just walk in off the street. The studio works mostly by appointment and is an intimate space surrounded by tattoo art creations in the making. The artists are usually busy a few weeks in advance because they take their work seriously and understand the magnitude of putting something on your body that will last forever. While every artist has their own style, Kim (a former artist on the LA Ink TV show) specializes in vibrant colors, decorative signs and anything inspired from nature. Shawn is more drawn towards painting and portraiture.

Tattoos by Misha

She works with clients to make sure that the new tattoo will never need a cover-up job again.

Ink Ink Tattoo

The all female staff provides a more sensitive and nurturing environment, as well as a positive vibe. While they do take walk-ins, the space/time is quite limited due to a backlog of appointments. It’s better to make an appointment beforehand to ensure you have enough time for the consultation and the work itself.

However, the artists are extremely private about their clients so there’s no chance of finding out any local gossip there.

Why You Should Never Get Your Ears Pierced at the Mall

It’s a really, really bad idea to get pierced at the mall.
Never use piercing guns

Seems innocent, right? You want to get your or your kid’s ears pierced and you figure, I’ll just head on down to the mall and get it done at one of those kiosks or affordable accessory shops. But unfortunately, that’s a not-so-smart move. Why, you ask? It’s dangerous, say experts. So before you head to a retail store for aquick ear piercing, read up on why you should go to a professional piercing studio instead.

You could get an infection.

Piercing guns — the typical tool used at your local shopping center — are fast and cheap, but they can put your health in danger. “From a medical standpoint, any object that is purposefully introduced through the skin should be sterile to decrease the probability of infection,” says Dr. Julia Tzu, dermatologist and founder of Wall Street Dermatology in New York City .
