Wrentham Village Premium Outlets
September 6, 2010 by staff
Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, Saunders Sandy welcomes your business on Thayer Street, Rockstar body piercing, and after the necessary documentation is signed, brings her in a small clean room, clearly, that has the feel of a doctor. A doctor’s kindness, that is. Saunders balances the momentary pain that makes a gentle manner. His voice is soft, no edge to it at all.
Sandy sits on the table. Saunders scrub their hands in the sink and opens a kit containing sterile gloves, toothpick and gentian violet, a dye anti-bacterial. He gloves and with the toothpick and dyes, lip begins to make more than women 23 years of age.
“I’m going to drill from the bottom up,” Saunders, 32, says.
Draw a cross.
“I want as perpendicular to the face as possible.”
But no, he says, precisely perpendicular: few faces are perfectly symmetrical, and Saunders must create in your mind an image of the final product. “It’s a challenge,” he says. “You can not put it on a computer.” This is where art comes in.
Saunders also has to be considered the visual past five Sandy lip piercings, all on the bottom.
No, for this session, it is necessary to consider Sandy piercings in various other parts of his anatomy, visible and invisible. Sandy has been pierced 39 times. She has “retired”, 11 of them for various reasons, leaving 28 pieces of stainless steel jewelry is inserted through your skin.
“Fortunately, she has a relatively symmetrical face,” Saunders says “It’s not a big difference from one side to another. The initial drilling has it in his lips are very well placed. I’m very happy with them.”
Saunders removes a tray that contains the tools and jewelry Sandy has chosen from the autoclave, the changes in new sterile gloves, and wash the lips of his client with alcohol and an iodine-based antiseptic.
“Okay,” he says. “I’ll have you lie down with his head here. How are you, okay?”
Sandy responds with an affirmative murmur.
“Well, well. ”
Saunders positions a piercing needle 16 gauge.
Son of a professor and a plant manager, Saunders, a native of the West, attending the University of Connecticut, where his then-girlfriend decided to have her ears pierced, in a now defunct store Thayer Street. It was Halloween, her birthday.
“She does that and I thought that many of my friends at university had pierced ears, so I give it a try and see what it was.”
He offered his ears. He was 18.
“He was a kind of punch a little hard on us – I think I was stressed out because it was Halloween and he was very busy. But still, the whole process intrigued me. It was like lightning struck me. I wanted to learn to do it immediately.
He did, first as an apprentice and then as a student at a school in San Francisco by Fakir Musafar, 80, an icon of the movement of drilling (born Roland Loomis South Dakota). Leaving the university began drilling in 1997 Saunders professionally and eventually became a partner of Rockstar. Along the way, he saw about four dozen piercings, almost everywhere. But he has remained very low: only two ears and one nostril, you can see.
“I think I look very, very intimidating after a while. Faces of some people can carry it out. For me, after more than one partner, it’s like I’m trying too hard.”
There is, of course, critical of others.
“I understand, if you are not into body piercing, and I understand that if you’re in one. Its like bodybuilding – is as nothing. You can take it to an end, and sometimes people really appreciate so extreme and some people as far more attenuated. There is room for everybody, I think. ”
Although not for all, not in his shop, he says. Saunders says he denies requests when deemed inadequate anatomy. He did not drill the fingers or toes, for example, he says, because the parties do not heal properly and attract dust, certain types of obstructions like navels. And he will not honor requests for modification of the body in 3-D (which some consider the mutilation), in which objects are implanted under the skin.
Saunders sees many punk rockers in his tent. And also, he says, doctors, students, lawyers, businessmen and regular people, adolescents through seniors.
The oldest, he says, was on the eve of his 80th birthday.
“She got her ears pierced and she said that everyone says the same thing when they arrive. He sat down and said, “My mom will kill me.”
As Saunders, Sandy is in tattoos, including one with the word freedom in the upper chest. “I have a lot of stars,” she says. “If you counted separately, then I have, like, 57 tattoos. But if they like having a big piece, it is less than that.”
A native of Plainville, Mass., where he still lives, Sandy traces the obsession of his father, a mechanic who has a tattoo of a lion. “He was drunk when he got,” she says. “He always regretted, but I remember watching him and thinking it was incredible.”
Piercings first fascinated as a child of about 5 with her grandmother riding in a cart, in Boston. A passenger who was struck youth. “He had his septum  nose pierced and had implants in his forehead. I could not help but I looked like for the whole trip, because he thought” it’s fascinating and like the coolest thing I had ever seen. ”
At age 14, Sandy wanted her nostril pierced. His mother, an office worker, said no.
And she did so with a safety pin.
“I do not recommend it,” he says.
When he reached the legal age, Sandy continued his passion, giving professionals, including Saunders and others, a sum that now total more than $ 1,000.
“For me, no different from someone who likes to exercise or dye their hair or go tanning.” For the record, Sandy likes makeup and ever-changing color and style of hair. Today, it’s dark and short.
Sandy works as assistant manager of the Hot Topic store in Wrentham Village Premium Outlets. A national chain, hot target a youth market, hip. Her piercings, she says, have become “something like a small mini-celebrity” in his hometown.
“I that people are fascinated and really nice about it and tell me I’m pretty and looks very nice to people who are very rude and told me that my face is disgusting and asks me what my mother thinks of me and those things. ”
What mother thinks?
“She really did not like it, but she knows I’m a good person and that’s all that matters.”
Like others in his field, Saunders does not use anesthesia, a punch of experts, he says, can minimize the pain. And the actual drilling takes less than a second.
Sandy quivers and a tear running from each eye. She does not bleed.
“How do you feel, okay?” Says Saunders.
Saunders is inserted through the upper lip jewelry Sandy. Balls at each end are anchored.
“You did awesome,” he says. “I’m going to get salt down there. Cool right down. ”
Sandy looks in a mirror.
“I love it,” he says.
Something on the order of 50 more holes to go, Sandy says more about her face, her ears, her navel, and elsewhere.
“I have a finished picture in my head of what you want appears. Not that I’m picking up random things like ‘oh, I think I’ll do this’.”
