Piercing in Los Angeles

I'm looking for a recommendation for a skilled piercing artist in a clean studio. I want to add a septum piercing to my growing collection of holes in my nose and I'm missing my hometown studio that had super knowledgable, skilled, and clean piercing artists. Could you help a person out and give me your favorite places to get pierced in LA?

How can I wear earrings again?

I got my ears pierced more than 20 years ago. Within the last two years or so, every time I wear earrings, they start bothering me after six hours or so. When I take them out, the area around the piercing is swollen and hard but does not hurt if I push at it, and the actual piercing may have a bit of dried blood. Because of this, I haven't been wearing earrings more often than once every two or three weeks, so that may be contributing to the bleeding (I often have to poke and prod a bit to open the pierced hole all the way to get an earring through). What should I do to be able to wear earrings regularly again? [more inside]

Getting nipple piercings in the Washington DC Metro area

I've been considering getting my nipples pierced for a long time, and am really starting to come down on the 'yes please' side. However, I'm not a big body mod person, so I have no idea where the best places in my area are to get pierced. Does anyone have any recommendations for me? Or places to stay away from? Special snowflake details after the jump. [more inside]

Him: Prince Albert piercing. Her: Veneers on front teeth. Advice?

If all goes well, this weekend I will have my first encounter with a Prince Albert piercing. I am very excited about this prospect, but I'm also concerned about breaking the veneers on my two front teeth. Other than the obvious "be careful!" is there anything else I should know or do? Even better, is this really not a problem I need to worry about? [more inside]

I can´t box, but can I get my nose pierced?

I don´t know if it´s how my nerves are arranged, or if I have an air passage too tight, but whenever I get hit on the nose, even if it isn´t too hard, I start sneezing uncontrollably a few seconds later. Now, I want to get my nose pierced (nostril, not septum), and I´m a bit afraid of that. [more inside]

Six months after piercing, how can I get rid of this bump on my ear?

Six months ago I got the cartilage of my ear pierced, about half an inch down from the top. Ever since, I’ve had a small red bump on the exit hole of the piercing. It varies in size almost daily, is somewhat tender-feeling, and produces some white crud overnight. I soak it regularly but it doesn’t seem to help. Please help me de-bumpify myself! [more inside]

But do you think they'll REALLY fire me for an eyebrow ring?

As has been pointed out, although I am a lawyer working in finance I don't look/act/talk/fit the part and my entire personality and sense of self strains and suffocates under the pressures of trying to fit in and the sacrifices it requires on various levels as such. Perhaps as a result of acting out under such strains and their increasing demands for me to pretend to be someone I'm not, I just got a facial piercing. [more inside]

Nose piercing infection : help needed

I got my wife a nose piercing for her birthday. She'd really wanted it for a long time, and I became a one-cooler husband. Trouble now, is that she's developed an infection right next to the piercing – a fairly visible dark bulbous spot. She's tried a few things including Tea Tree oil, which does help reduce, but not eliminate the infection. This has now been going on for about a month and she's getting really upset that it won't go away (I can't blame her). I don't want her to regret getting the piercing because I think it's a really cool thing that she's done (a real stretch for her), and pretty sexy too. Any suggestions on getting rid of this infection?
