We had an accident at work today. One of my maintenance guys was working on
a machine and, even though he was wearing a T-shirt, caught his nipple ring
on a bolt head and tore the ring out. I understand he has pictures on his
I just want to be sure you guys with nipple rings are taking proper
precautions and wear protective covers. I'm going to give him the tops of
jelly jars and a roll of duct tape.
Please don't tell us about the next one. (It might be a glans ring, so
don't tell us your safety mechanism for that, either, _especially_ if
it mentions duct tape.)
Remember, in an emergency, dial 1911.
The wierdest one impinging on my visual range was
a specimen who had tapped ss mounts inserted
beneath the skin upwards of the forehead on
either side of the front of the skull. After the
skin had healed and tightened, he had horns screwed
into the base elements, wearing all of this with
a delightfully snotty air of feigned nonchalance
seasoned with a sense of laughable menace.
Highly amusing. I chatted him up a bit.
Maybe he was a nice guy,
but I'm not making book on it.

If you want a "backward" lobotomy, count the two guys
seen with tattooed faces on the rear of their skulls, complete with
the haircut trimmed to simulate moustaches and beards.
Reminds me of the Tomcats painted with canopies beneath to look
like they're flying upside down. Maybe that duet was
BTW, in a suave PR move, the name of that operation has
been changed to "leucotomy". IIRC, the guy who invented it
under the former moniker won a Nobel prize for the procedure....
Aha, the name of the award winner was Egas Moniz.
There's that great line "A tattoo is a permanent reminder of a
temporary emotion." You need one
for a medical alert, fine. But why people get them on places
they can't see is curious. Covering them up in certain social
situations, as well, does seem to incline to a reconsideration
of the initial decision. I try to focus on character and deeds.
But some folk are dead set on making hard judgement on
externals and that prejudice is the jeopardy of tattoos and
Hey, B, you planning to get in to astral projection anytime
You will enjoy this.
A divergent friend went to "Astral
Projection Camp" once. Honest. The injunction to novices
was no speaking for the first week of the experience.
He observed that the second week ruined his fond
opinion of many people.
I really have no objection to anybody with piercings, long hair, tattoos,
etc. But when you start to work around machinery, they can be problematic,
to say the least. I always prized safety over fashion. Or fitting in with a
bunch of folks who don't know what work is. Or safety.
Reminds me of that Jeff Foxworthy story about the guy who picked up a "dead"
beaver. It woke up and bit his nipple off. Soooo...., you might be a
redneck if a beaver bites off your nipple. What does it make you if you
have a nipple ripped off/open from a big machine? Somehow, I think it fits
in the same category as the beaver guy.
Maybe he needs to wear one of those Viking, opera bras, for protection
purposes, of course.
