It should be noted that when ... read more

I was planning a trip to Atlanta and he asked me to return with a piercing needle and jewelry so that i could pierce his earlobes.

BME BOD MOD SQUICK

BOD MOD SQUICK Pat Fish's inadvertant piercing Seems like the stories behind medical events are never quite as dramatic as we might wish. There I was, up on an antique stepstool I inherited from my Grandmother, putting lettuce in a fishtank in my tattoo studio. Next thing I knew, a misstep had propelled me to the cement floor and I was an industrial statistic with a bone shattered into 20 pieces. The two inches of radius next to the wrist bones were visible in the x-rays as a mass of shards, and I was fortunate indeed to have access to ... read more
