I believe it’s been a few years now since we’ve all seen the craze and huge popularity of triple forward helix piercings, which seems to have given birth to pretty much triple everything.
As a piercer, I absolutely love how popular intricate cartilage piercings seem to have become, at least much more than I’ve yet experienced in my career.
It is amazing and inspiring to see my colleagues constantly pushing the envelope with unbelievably beautifully done ear cartilage piercings.
I’m sure most people have already seen this photo (I believe it is safe to say it single handedly put TFH piercings on everybody’s radar), but what you may not have known is that this piercing was originally done (shown on the left) by our very own APP member Christina Shull (Integrity Piercing, Wenatchee, WA).
I would like to take a moment to say thank you to Chrissy, and to all of the other piercers whose work you see being reblogged on the safepiercing tumblr. It’s really fun to share these images, and it’s a constant motivator to see how amazing and creative piercings can be.
And thank you to all of the other piercers and piercees that keep spreading the message and importance of safe piercing.
