New Evolved jewelry finally on display

Posted by John Johnson on Tuesday, May 31, 2011,
I now have smaller gauge stone plugs than I've had before in the Long Beach studio.  Lots of interesting pieces in outstanding shape and color.  When I purchase plugs like this I inspect each individual plug so I know the edges and wearing surfaces are all smooth.  Come check em out.

Sunday again

Posted by John Johnson on Sunday, May 29, 2011,
We're piercing for a limited time today.  We don't normally pierce on Sundays so this is your chance.  We don't pierce on Mondays but I'll be back piercing next week from Tuesday through Friday.  Remember we have the APP conference coming up and I'll be in Vegas from Saturday the 4th to the following 11th.  Piercing will resume on June 13th.  I'd like to not thank another local Long Beach magazine for doing a great article about our studio and not mentioning our body piercing services.

Christmas again.

Posted by John Johnson on Thursday, May 19, 2011,
but this time it's for you guys.  sales reps from Evolved (Seattle) came in yesterday.  I picked up some beautiful wood hanging shapes for your ears and a lot of stone plugs in smaller sizes.  For the first time in 4 years this studio now has stone plugs smaller than 8g.  I hand picked stone plugs from 6g down to 12g and a few larger pieces over an inch that were amazing.  I tried to get some stone colors that everyone would like so hurry in to see what's new.  It may be a couple weeks before...

New Jewelry has arrived!

Posted by John Johnson on Saturday, May 14, 2011,
It's always fun to get new jewelry.  Today I received new nostril screws from NeoMetal.  They make really flat gems that everybody loves.  These titanium pieces cost $20 and are great for new piercings and old!  I received new citrine yellow gems cuz they've been selling like crazy.


Also from NeoMetal I got a special order gem end for Ani's ear piercing.  She's wearing a NeoMetal post and loves to wear gold in her piercings.

Back from camping

Posted by John Johnson on Tuesday, May 10, 2011,
Jackson is a very special family dog and deserved a vacation so I took him camping.






We made it to the campsite in record time on Sunday.  Had the entire park to ourselves.  No stress, no phones, no computers.




This is the hammock I bought in Brazil.  This was the first time I slept in it overnight instead of my tent!




Jackson slept next to the fire pit all night and kept warm.  He snores.

Play Piercing

Posted by John Johnson on Friday, May 6, 2011,

Got to do some fun play piercing last night.  Always enjoy that!  Play piercing is a $30 service fee and $1 per needle.  This client wore 50 needles for about 10 minutes.  Fun time.  Thanks to Brett from Anomaly in Pasadena for supplying me with some needles.

I'll be camping this sunday night and returning to Long Beach on Monday afternoon.  If anyone who wants to meet up for a relaxing couple days I take my telescopes to a little known place about 3 hours north of LA.
