George had never been pierced before, so decided on getting his lobes pierced with the idea to stretch them in future…
Here’s El Capitan VS. George w/some ear lobe piercing action.
- Blue pen out, marking up; all important to get the positioning aesthetically pleasing as well as level and straight.
For a first piercing, George looks pretty relaxed.
- Clamp the lobe with a mini clamp and pierced w/1.6mm needle.
Now all smiles…
- After removing the needle from the canula, snip the canula down at an angle to bite the jewellery thread.
Right side done. Now for the pair…
Left side done.
- Fit the jewellrey into the suspended canula and ease through the pierced lobe leaving just the bar, thread fix the ball on to finish.
George was pierced w/1.6mm x 8mm blackline titanium labret bars w/5mm balls.
All in all, George took it well and enjoyed his first piercing experience ~ no doubt, no less @ Shiva Piercings w/El Capitan.
Special Thanks to Kelly Fitzsimmons for taking the photographs.
