Cody is off to work in San Francisco later this week, which means its time for another talented piercer to keep our clients happy and fancy at the studio. 

We’re very excited to have our dear friend Richard Ivey at Vaughn Body Arts today through Sunday. 

Richard is a very experienced body piercer, and an all around sweet guy whose a blast to be around. 

The big jewelry order from anatometal is due in any day now, and Richard will be here to take care of all your piercing and jewelry needs. 

Here’s a super cute navel piercing he did yesterday for our client Autumn. Thank you, Autumn!

Mursi tribeswoman sticking out her tongue, lower lip stretched to accommodate large clay lip plate. Omo Delta, Ethiopia, Africa. The Omo delta is an area where the way of life remains largely untouched by the 21st century, and local tribes each have their own unique customs and rituals. Body adornment can be extreme, such as in the case of the Mursi women who insert a clay lip plate, up to 7 inches (16cm) in diameter, in their lower lip. Decorative scarification, and bodies painted with white or ochre clay, are combined with ornate beadwork and striking headdresses.

This weekend has been a busy one here at Vaughn Body Arts. Lots of wonderful clients getting beautiful piercings. Here’s one of our favorites from yesterday. Kristen wanted a surface piercing on her sternum. We used a 14g 5/8” anatometal flat surface bar with these gorgeous threaded flowers, anodized bronze. Thanks so much, Kristen!

You just couldn’t find a better piercing client than this young lady here. 
Sophia came in for ear lobe piercings. She chose a pair of 14k yellow gold Trinity ends from NeoMetal. 
Such a great looking pair of lobes. Thanks, Sophia!

Karlyn stopped in for an industrial piercing, but she wanted jewelry that would look simple yet elegant. With that in mind she chose this lovely 18k yellow gold barbell from anatometal. Great choice, Karlyn. Thank you so much.
