it’s always like: MEGABLAST ULTRA LASH SUPER INTENSE BLACKEST BLACK WITH OUT BRAND NEW FORMULA ENGINEERED FROM REGENERATIVE DNA OF LIZARDS AND COMES WITH TOP SECRET ADVANCED WAND TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED BY NASA
I noticed yesterday, having lunch, that two people in the restaurant had septum piercings- one server and one customer. That’s pretty common for Philly and I’m sure the same could be said for most major cities these days.
When I got my septum piercing in 1991 it was far less common; for the most part we wore septum retainers (which were designed to be hidden) when we were out with the ‘general public’ to avoid stares and comments.
By then, the shift was starting in the piercing scene from mostly older folks who were discretely modified to younger devotees who didn’t mind pushing the boundaries in public. Most of the older generation kept things under the collar and up the sleeves; but not Sailor Sid.
At a time when most people feared exposure, Sid- who often referred to himself as ‘your Freakunkle’ proudly wore his septum piercing out and tattooed the tops of his hands. While we’re used to it now, you can imagine the stares that a septuagenarian who looked like Sid drew back in the ’80s (when this photo was taken).
Pioneers like Sid paved the way for the generations that followed.
i don’t think you ever really understand how much, or in what way, you love someone until you almost lose them.
it’s unfortunate, really.
