With the exception of the Kaos stuff, I rarely see stuff I like on Hot Topic's site.When I did this the 1st time,back in the 90s, Hot Topic didn't even have anything over 00g.At least the one near me didn't.I actually at the time thought that 00g was like, the end of the road & that was it. Even in tattoo magazines I'd rarely see much larger at the time. So when I moved to Philly at 19 & went into places like Infinite,I remember being so amazed at how big some of the piercer's ears were,or at their stretched conches or flats.I don't know why,but for some reason, up til then it just never occurred to me that you could even stretch ear cartilage. I don't know why-I'd known people w/stretched septums. I guess I just never thought of doing your ear cartilage because I just til then hadn't seen it before.
But I'm really thinking I may get those snake ones. I usually don't wear ornate stuff like that. I rarely even wear hanging styles,& when I do,they're usually very simple,like spirals or those gg hoops. But something about those snakes,I just really like them. I have no clue where I'd wear them to & they're very impractical, but I really like them alot.I'd get more wear out of the GG linear plugs,but I don't have anything like those snakes. They're they type of jewelry though that I know I'll definitely get stared at. I don't really care, & I'm not one of those people that's going to wear something borderline outlandish & out of the norm & then bitch when people stare (I hate when people do that!),but I'm just saying. But I have time to think about it,though it's only a little over a week away.Either way though,I still think I'll get the concave ones & earskins.I'd need the earksins if I get the snakes
I got the GG captives today! They look really good-better than I was expecting & than the photo. I love the ocean color & the little balls are very secure,but at the same time not hard to take in or out. But it's good they're secure,since they're alot smaller than my size,they have a tendency to slide around sometimes,but that's ok. I kind of like how they look when the bead's not always at the bottom.
