I’m not a regular viewer of anything on Youtube. I’ve seen a few episodes though and while I don’t always agree with some of the things JC says or does, I respect him a lot for the time and dedication that show takes. It can’t possibly be easy to come up with a new topic to discuss every week. I’m glad he’s doing his best to fight the good fight on that website, but I don’t envy what he’s doing lol.

Real quick- what do I say or do that you disagree with? I hear some piercers say that all the time, yet they never specify. I’ve been piercing 20 years in March of this year, been internally threaded since before the days most piercers were still defending their use of MM, and base my procedures ONLY off of the best evidence available (rather than what is cheap, convenient, or strictly “legal” at the moment). I even use the platform to promote others, WITHOUT them paying me….even if they will send people 100 miles out of their way to keep from referring to me! So please, spell it out for me. 

While I certainly won’t try to speak for any other piercers, so I’ll just say the things I personally am not a big fan of. Honestly, it’s mostly the (often times unnecessary) use of punches in your videos. Helix piercings, conch piercings, industrials, stuff that if you really wanted to pierce that way, an o-needle would be a better option in my opinion to post in such a public format. We all know that punches fall in a pretty “grey area” legally in this country, I just wish that the only real piercing show on Youtube wouldn’t use them so freely. Especially when there is a perfectly legal alternative that would give you the exact same result for piercings 10g and smaller(currently).

Aside from that, I think you do a great job. I really do. As I’ve said, it can’t possibly be easy to come up with a new topic to talk about every week. I’ve got a lot of respect for the work you put into that show and a lot of respect for you for the amount of outreach that you’re doing for this industry. Saying that I don’t always agree with everything you say was not meant to be any sort of insult. We can have differing opinions while still trying to reach the same goal, which is public outreach on safe piercings.

Thank you so much for your kind words and honest feedback- lots of people generally won’t give a truthful opinion, and I thank you. I wish the situation in the U.S. surrounding punches was different. I hate the fact that reputable piercers usually hide their use of punches, even from each other, over fear. It’s a sad statement about America when the people actively self-censor because a statute/act/code says that a handle magically turns a “needle” into a “medical device”, despite the fact that a 5 year old can look at them and tell they’re the exact same thing (only one is sharper and easier to use). Hopefully, some day soon, we can do our jobs without having to compromise, but until then, it takes bravery to stand in the face of injustice. Just like how we wouldn’t start using piercing guns if the state made us, we SHOULD be standing up for our peers and demanding the right to use the best tools for the job. 

I didn’t take it as an insult either, for the record…I just figured you’d give me a straight answer! Keep up the good work answering the myriad of question you get- I’ve got something in the neighborhood of 1400 or so, and I do not have your patience in answering them- it takes a ton of work to provide a legit piercing Q&A forum. I know I appreciate it, and hope you keep it up!

This.
