The article is pretty lame and neglects to include any of the health and safety information I pushed on them (we talked for almost an hour) but instead posted a bunch of bullshit from a liar of a surgeon — surprising given that even the reporter could tell that they'd dredged up a real bottom of the barrel hack — but check out the hilarious picture that CNN included in their latest tongue splitting article via Reuters:

And I'm so biting my tongue on who they featured (and of course I'm not talking about Emrys who came off just fine). I've seen so much ill-conceived dangerous poorly thought out stuff come from that studio (or as the reporter who interviewed me described it, “the basement of the studio this piercer worked in, while the boss was out at lunch”) though. It's really sad that the few people who are willing to talk to the media are likely the ones who'll eventually kill someone and really make a media stink.

Artists, please: There's nothing wrong with being inexperienced and wanting to learn high-end procedures. But there's definitely something wrong with doing potentially deadly experiments that you're not ready for, and it should be pretty fucking obvious that's it's a horrible idea to do an illegal procedure that you're not qualified to do in front of the media.

15 minutes just isn't that important.

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