Hey! have you guys heard of this thing called ‘eBay’?
It’s an online auction site!
Anyway, it’s a new thing for me. I’ve seen too many people get far too addicted to it for my liking so I’ve always steered clear of it, until now.
I’ve also got a few piercings about the place and quite large holes in my ears (20mm). I tend to loose the plugs for my ears which is annoying to say the least. Once upon a time a few for my friends worked for various piercing shops so I only ever paid a fraction of the price of the jewelry I wanted.
Having finally got to a point where I desperately needed new plugs I took the plunge and went into the emo hell pit that is Off Your Tree. “Two new 20mm stainless steel plugs please” i said. “Sure, $45 each” they said. I thought, “hmmm, don’t think I’ve ever paid more than about $15 for a pair” and walked out not knowing where to go next.
I want to make this point to anyone with piercings in Melbourne. You are being ripped off by these emo piercing places. I can assure you that the new navel ring that you just paid $50 for is worth $5 at best. There are at least 1000% mark ups on anything you buy. Don’t do it.
“I wonder if I could find any on ebay” I thought. And behold, I have two 20mm “flesh tunnels” in the post on their way now for a meager $19 delivered.
