Unusual Group Stopping Tattoo and Piercing Discrimination

Support Tattoos and Piercings at Work Guy in T-shirtTHE STORY: Tattoos That Ruin Food

A manager at a restaurant in Kansas City was let go because of her tattoos, piercings and stretched ears. Her boss hired her with her tattoos and piercings, but two customers had complained saying it created an “unpleasant atmosphere.” So, her friends came up with a creative way to save her job…. A flash mob on social media.

For one week, the manager’s friends ran ads on Facebook recruiting friends, families and customers to like a page called, “Support Tattoos and Piercings at Work.” The plan was to gather people together, and on the following Monday release her bosses’ work contact info. Upon release friends, family and customers were instructed to ONLY tell the boss why they appreciated the manager’s character and to say thanks for hiring people in the past with tattoos and piercings. Strict instructions were given that no one should say anything negative, or it would defeat everyone else’s efforts. Monday arrived and over 500 people contacted the boss and well before the 500th person the manager got her job back.

New and Different Aftercare Product: Formula 1138

formula 1138 Aftercare Spray

A while back, I received some correspondence and samples of a new aftercare spray, "Formula 1138" from the company's founder, Dan Terry. He provided me with some very interesting technical and scientific information about the liquid, and it clarified that this is something different from any other aftercare product I've seen or used. He says Formula 1138 is all-natural, safe, and non-toxic. One of the active ingredients, HOCL, is a biocide that does not break down cellular tissue and only works to eradicate pathogens.  

I have put it on cuts and scrapes to excellent effect, though haven't had any healing piercings to try it on personally. Dan has done a successful year-long study on its use in piercing aftercare with 250 clients. I have been intrigued by Dan's product and asked him to talk about it in his own words....

Fantastic Review of The Piercing Bible

Amazing review on Google Books that I hadn't seen before:

To call this book "the definitive guide" is an understatement. This book shall remain the definitive guide for the next hundred years. As a piercee and a piercer I can say with honesty that there is nothing that I know that isn't in this book. Against it's intended use, this book is an invaluable tool for any body piercer to further hone their skills and gain a better understanding of many details that commonly get ignored in the industry.

Everyone considering a body piercing should read this book. Knowledge is power, and knowing better what to expect when walking into a piercing studio will ensure a quality piercing that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. The savvy acquired from reading this book will help you recognize good, clean studios from sub par, inexperienced ones, which could potentially save your life.
The author has a very straight forward presentation of her decades of accrued data. There are no frills or fluff in this book. She lays everything out directly with a subtle wit shining through that made me chuckle dozens of times.

Great Reviews for The Piercing Bible (Body Piercing Book) on Amazon.com

Well, this is a milestone for The Piercing Bible: my book has received over 100 reviews on Amazon.com, resulting in a 5-star average, which is SO fantastic! 

Thanks to each of my readers who provided a positive review on that site (or any other). Below is a shot of the Amazon page.

But, I wanted to let everyone know how disappointed I am in Amazon.com. They refused to give me an affiliate account so that I could receive a small portion of the proceeds when someone purchased a copy of my book by clicking through from my website. They declined because my website contains what they consider to be "adult content." 

I spoke with a manager and made my appeal for the educational nature of my site (it isn't porn--not that there's anything wrong with adult media, but that simply isn't what my book or website is about). Still they said they could not allow me to have an account to sell the book from my website, which covers the same topics that are contained in the text. Yet they sell the book. I don't think that makes any sense.... 

I appreciate reviews there, since it is such a popular website; however, I do have a request:
