Any piercer worth your time is more worried about your heart than they are about your wallet. Hearty cash tips are totally welcome, but at the end of the day, you don’t need to buy our love. Some piercers totally love snacks, others are picky eaters, so be careful with unannounced snacks as they might not go over super well. (for example, I’m allergic to bananas, and I feel like 1/2 the time a client tries to give me food, it’s full of them) I’ve received all sorts of things as tips over the years, but it was the hugs, the teary-eyed thank yous, the original art, and those sorts of things that I’ll prize forever. Money just gets spent.
If you want your piercer to think highly of you, be sure to let them take the lead with jewelry selection, ask them for their opinion on what looks good and what they think works best for you, and take great care of your piercings according to their instructions. Stop by for check ups, and be someone they want to see come by.
The Last Japanese Mermaids
For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.
In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
