This is Brian, owner of Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing. Bask in his awesomeness.
I got my septum pierced. It’s a long, awful story in the beginning, but it ends with this awesome guy in his awesome shop putting this awesome rose gold ring through my face this past Friday. I am well pleased; it’s dainty and feminine without offending my tomboy sensibilities. In short, it’s fucking perfect.
If you’re in LA and want to get holes punched through your body, go here. You won’t regret it. The shop is immaculate, fully modern with vintage touches, and the coolest dude in the world who absolutely loves what he does will be the one working with you. Not only did he consult with me and take out a bad initial piercing (remember: long, awful story); he also helped me pick out the best jewelry and placement while making me feel completely at ease with him. I think I developed a full-blown crush within 3 minutes of talking with him – he’s that good.
So yes – Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing. Go there. Tell him I told you to go there when you go there. And then send me pictures of what you got done (unless it’s one of those “advanced genital projects”…I don’t really want to see that).

Thanks to everyone who has joined in on this soon-to-be very involved discussion. Based on Terri’s comment on the last post, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite posts on a few of my favored blogs for your consideration. It’s a shame that the ones that I would most often like to read post very infrequently or have stopped posting altogether. BUT! the magic of modern technology, the internet, and cached pages (heh heh) keep them available. I encourage anyone who is looking to simplify and/or appreciate simplicity to get into Dead Fleurette. For those wanting to get into the mental-mind functions behind shopping (among a host of other interesting topics), check out Empty Emptor. If you need motivation to enjoy what you have to the fullest, I’d suggest Dead Fleurette and Case of the Tiny Closet. For a ton of material on a thoughtful, minimalist approach to wardrobe building, check out Into-Mind (I’ve been stuck on this blog for the last few weeks – aside from the great content, it’s gorgeous and easy to navigate).
It’s always great hearing from you guys and I’m glad I’m not alone. If we do this accountabilibuddy thing right, we should be able to manage, amirite?
Oh, and if you have any interesting articles or blogs you’d like to share, please do so in the comment box. Each one, reach one.
