I haven't done one of these for a little while, have I? Anyway, there are currently 187 experiences being run through the plaigerism bots so that'll take a while, plus as I'm waiting for the cable repair guy, I have a little recreational break. So… Here's my favorite recent “letters to the editor”:

A studio to avoid.

As far as I can tell everyone is a piercer nowadays. You'd think though that if you were going to open a studio you'd have the respect for your clients to at least understand the basics:

Well see im startin this new bussiness (underground) anyways it's piecering and i need some >GOOD< products for like tongue pieceings and stuff but you know i have my peeps up at the hospitals hook me up with most of my gear like antispetics and gloves etc.etc. anyways i know how to piece and stuff cuz well i've done my own but i still need new needles and i was wondering what do you suggest i use (i used a 12g. (i think) and then put the barbell inside it 14 i think? then i did it all but i don't know which i should buy and how many 14 and 12 gauge needle come for 2.99? 1 or 2 or 3??? anyways i could REALLY USE YOUR HELP!!! later peace

Now that's scary

I sure hope this guy isn't going to be working at Devin's studio! I know we have some odd clients at BMEshop, but I hope we're not getting a reputation as catering to serial killers!

It's not safe

I get variations on this particular email on pretty much a daily basis, from underage kids who want me to help convince their parents they should get pierced. Yeah, they won't listen to their kids but they'll listen to some weird guy who runs what's in their eyes an extremely fucked up website? Anyway, I can't tell you that piercing is safe. I certainly can't tell you that from an objective point of view it's a good idea. I can tell you that most of the people who write experiences on BME seem to have improved their lives with piercings. If that's not good enough, then I'm not sure what is.

Subject: Hi wonderful website you have...

Hello, I was wondering if you could give me information on the safety of navel piercings, my dad won't let me get one until he knows its safe, thank you so much!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
