Several new items added to the site today (Threadless barbells, labrets, and ear rods from NeoMetal), but most importantly...

...shipping has been fixed!

There was a bug in our shopping cart program caused by USPS making some unannounced changes to their server. What that means is that no matter what shipping method was selected, customers were being charged for express mail upon checkout regardless of their choice. That is no longer the case, and everything should be 100% functional!

LOTS of new stuff on the store the last couple days, and a lot more to come soon!

We've listed silicone eyelets and star-front plugs that we're discontinuing super-cheap, so if you're looking for something light and comfortable to wear this winter this is a really good deal.

We also listed a ton of solid stone plugs on the site today as well among all the other new stuff:

More exciting stuff soon! Keep checking back!

Big labrets

Marea has been making a lot of big labrets lately. They're definitely something we really enjoy making here at Aesthetics because they totally embody custom jewelry. Back shapes, oval shapes, etc. all have to be fit to the individual person.

Here's a 13.5mm oval labret out of olivewood. This client prefers and top and bottom flare, as opposed to the usual no flare on the bottom and slight flare on the top:

This one for me (Alan) is also olivewood. 3/4" by 1" oval with a brass off-center inlay:

This one is a huge 1 1/16" ebony oval labret:

Danny and Dom came by yesterday when they were in town. It was good seeing them again!
Dom had to take her nape piercing out because of a job and decided to get her sternum pierced again. Alan did a beautiful job and it looks great!
Danny's ears were scalpelled by Alan. His cartilage piercings were done by Alan and Marea, one each - although we can't remember who did which. :)

cardinal rule...

Not to point fingers... but - no more names! :)
A frien brought in his buddy who wanted to get rid of an ex's name. He was at the point of putting a lit cigar out on it. So Marea decided to take a conservative route and just to burn off the top layer of skin just above the name... The ink was really deep (as you can see in the photo), but she didn't want to scar too deep on a finger... a scar in the shape of the name is just a bad!
Update after a couple days: the tattoo ink is coming out as the brand is healing. sucess! We will post pictures after it is all healed.
