...goodbye blogger!

We've integrated the main page of our webstore at with wordpress, and all posts have been exported there.

What's this mean?

From now on, all you have to do to check out our blog is visit our webstore. New blog posts are displayed in the main ('home') page of the store, and archived posts are tabbed on the sidebar to the right. As of 12-11-08 all new updates about our products and shop will be added there.

December Update

We've got lots of new stuff on the site and in the shop for December, and a few announcements!

We got a TON of new bamboo, rattan, and mixed metal designs from Equipped for Eternity. Lots of really nice stuff... their big antiqued-metal hanging designs look amazing through wood eyelets! We got some specialty bamboo and rattan plugs/eyelets as well -- burnt designs, node-cut bamboo, black bamboo... even some bamboo teardrops!

We also got some prints and original paintings from our good friend and great artist, Steve Thompson. They are gracing the walls of our shop for the time being, but are available here as well as on the webstore in the 'media' section.

We're making some slight changes/improvements on the webstore as well. If you haven't noticed, we've got new categories for our wood jewelry for pre-made jewelry versus custom jewelry. In addition, we're expanding on the amount of pre-made jewelry we have available here at the shop and on the webstore by adding more basic already-made designs. We're starting this expansion with solid single-flared wood plugs from 14 gauge up to 1" in some of our most popular woods -- ebony, granadillo, olivewood, and tiger ebony have already been started, and we'll be adding more woods and basic designs as they are completed.

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos of them wearing our jewerlry -- we'll be adding a photo section specifically for that very soon to the site -- if you haven't sent us photos yet, we could always use more!

And now... holiday stuff!

We've set up a coupon with 'giftmas08' as the code for 10% off anything on our webstore. We've set it to last until the end of December so that if your secret santa doesn't get you that pair of plugs you wanted, you can still use the money from your stocking to get them yourself.

If you plan on getting custom jewelry made in time for x-mas: we will be making the cutoff for orders at 6pm December 20th (when the storefront closes for the weekend) to give us one final weekend to catch up. Any orders placed before that time will be guaranteed to ship by Monday the 22nd. If you plan on getting stuff by the 25th, please order before then and make sure you choose a shipping option that will get them to you in time!

In addition we'll be giving away some free stuff as an end-of-the-year 'thank you' to our loyal clients. We will be contacting the 10 people with the most orders on our store from the past year after the first of the year (not including wholesale accounts... no cheating!) about an extra 'thank you' for all the support.

That's all for now... keep checking back for more updates and features, and have a good holiday season!

Aesthetics will be closed Friday and Saturday (11/14 and 11/15), but we will resume our regular hours on Tuesday (11/18). We will be at the Chicago tattoo convention for the weekend sharing a booth with Oracle Body Jewelry -- if you're in the area or going to the show, stop by and say hi!

Orders placed online will be processed as usual, and we'll be working late Sunday and all day Monday to make orders that would have been made this weekend, so there shouldn't be any delay in any orders that are pending.

We still have new products to add to the site next week, so keep checking back for new stuff.

In the meantime, WE WANT YOUR PHOTOS! We're working on a page for the site of people wearing jewelry we've made. So send photos of you wearing our stuff to and we'd appreciate it!

Enjoy the weekend!

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween, and arrived safely into November!

To start out the new month, we've got more new jewelry:

We just got a TON of new Miao and Afghani silver jewelry:

On top of that, we also got several new gold pieces from Body Vision -- navel curves, nostril nails, and a handful of really nice ends for threadless barbells. In addition to the items that we stock from Body Vision, if you like gold jewelry, at any time you can check out their site, add items to your wishlist, or order them, and they will forward the order to us and we'll make sure to get you what you want. If you don't see what you want on their site, feel free to contact them through the site or us and they can make a custom piece for you and we'll get it to you. If you have any questions about custom gold jewelry, feel free to contact us!

We've also picked up a run of new double-flared Tibetan agate from Evolve we'll be adding to the site shortly... we picked some extra-stripey pairs. It's a really gorgeous stone!

As always, if you'd like to see anything else added to our site, have questions about custom-made pieces, etc. feel free to let us know!

New stone updated

New stuff from Oracle has been added to the site:

Single-flared stone plugs from 10g to 1/2" in Labradorite, Opalite, Yellow Tiger's Eye, Picasso Jasper, and Goldstone. These are great for conches, labrets, nostrils, etc. where double-flares won't work, or just for those of you that are stretching or prefer single-flares for your lobes.

In the single-flare, we also picked up some opalite single-flares with heart-front flares.

We also got a handful of custom stone jewelry including some really amazing stone labrets in Mahogany Obsidian, Purple Agate, Tiger Iron, Banded Onyx, Serpentine, Labradorite, Lapis, and Ocean Jasper.

Now that the shop is back up and running and we're caught up on orders from last month's hiatus, we've had a chance to get back to something we really enjoy -- buying new jewelry!

We've got a bunch of new stone from Oracle that's in the shop now, and we'll be adding it to the webstore as well very soon. Single flared stone and opalite plugs, opalite heart-front plugs, and some assorted custom pieces including some super nice stone labrets.

Check out the store online in the next day or so as we get the new pieces photographed and listed, or if you're in the area swing by in person and see it for yourself.

Until then, here's a quick shot of some of the new stuff...

We're back!

We've begun processing and making orders that came in while we were away, so if you ordered anything from us while we were out of town you've likely received an e-mail confirming your order at this point. For those of you that didn't notice or forgot to use the 20% off coupon while we were gone, we gave it to you anyway, so if the total you got charged for versus what's on your invoice is off that's why.

The shop is now open and fully operational. Come visit and check it out! New address:

5612 E Washington St
Suite B
Indianapolis, IN 46219

We don't have our sign up yet, so we're a little tricky to find, but that will be resolved soon. We're in the same building as Snips and Edibles in Irvington. They both face Washington street, we face away from the street. If you can't find out entrance since we don't have a sign up, feel free to stop in Snips or Edibles or give us a call and they'll point you to the right place!

If you placed an order while we were gone and have questions about its status, feel free to e-mail us or call us and we'll be glad to give you an estimate of how long it should take us to get out to you. It's looking right now like we'll be fully caught up within two weeks or less, and we'll be back to filling orders within days again.

Thanks for the patience during the move! Once things are settled down and caught up, we'll have some new stuff going up on the store, so keep a lookout for that as well.
