1/24/2005: Eyeglasses piercing



Suggested by Syrinx, here's one I kind of hope doesn't become fashion. These glasses are held on by a piercing through the bridge of this guy's nose.

full story



Roosta  Monday Jan 24 12:24 PM

Urgh! I'd be too worried about walking into a door or falling over. Still, at least they won't slide down his nose..



Trilby  Monday Jan 24 12:37 PM

This idea is beyond stupid. Not to sound like anyone's mama, but piercing the bridge of your nose is dangerous. Very close to brain tissue and potential for infection is huge. Stupid, stupid, stupid!

Quite. And if they penciled in a mustache and goatee...they could pass for a member of the Professorati! Brilliant!


warch  Monday Jan 24 01:10 PM

I want to see them in the flip up position.



Troubleshooter  Monday Jan 24 01:13 PM

I'm wating for the first fist fight.



glatt  Monday Jan 24 01:35 PM

I think they look cool.

I would never get them because they are not practical and I'm a big believer in designing things to work well before even beginning to consider how they look. But these do look good.



chainsaw  Monday Jan 24 01:46 PM

This makes me gag. As a person who wears glasses, I question how one would clean them without gouging ones eyeballs out? Or yanking on the lenses too hard and causing more injury. Also, I know a stupid person that had that part of his nose pierced and his body didn't like it. The barbell eventually worked its way through his skin and fell off. Now he has a big ugly scar. Why are people so stupid?!



Happy Monkey  Monday Jan 24 02:09 PM

There was a character in some William Gibson book who had mirrored sunglasses implanted around her eyes. That would be a pretty cool look - for someone other than me.

I don't remember if it got into how she managed tears, eye gunk, and discarded lashes...



glatt  Monday Jan 24 02:27 PM

I remember the same book. She didn't like people touching her implants because the fingerprints were a pain, and someone ended up going for her implants in a fight. There were an achilles heel.



Wormfood  Monday Jan 24 03:03 PM

What's next..
ear-protection holded by piercing.

That was Molly, the book was Neuromancer. If I remember correctly, her tear ducts were routed back into her mouth, so instead of crying, she spit.

This guy should stay away from pullover sweaters.

Dead on. Awesome book. If i remember correctly they also acted as a display. While the downsides of this are...noticeable (wouldn't contacts be a touch easier matey?) if you could have it also act as a display.....awesome....ok I need to go de-geek.

Wearing them whie asleep seems a tad too far though, I'd be terrified of rolling over and waking up screaming in a pool of blood or something. I get the feeling he sleeps alone somehow.


404Error  Monday Jan 24 05:37 PM

Not only the dificulty sleeping with them and cleaning them but what about when he comes from the cold outside into a warm room and they fog up?

Or how about showering or swimming with them attached to your face? Doh!



Troubleshooter  Monday Jan 24 05:39 PM

Maybe the implants are actually just the mounting studs like those people with prosthetic faces get. Just clip the glasses on.



magilla  Monday Jan 24 07:05 PM

So who's the piercing whore that did the job? If there's any professionalism or professional organization in that trade, the person should be outcast. Some things just seem to go too far, and it certainly isn't a tatoo-artist's job to be mucking around with prescription lenses.



wolf  Monday Jan 24 09:42 PM

I am taking a few moments here to be grateful of two things ...

one, I just plain don't get the whole self-mutilation for the sake of fashion thing. I have my ears pierced only because a friend's wife noticed I didn't have pierced ears and started buying the beer. Ten Pints of German Dark Beer later, I was on a stool in the Piercing Pagoda at Christiana Mall with a bleach blonde Vietnamese child coming at me with a pair of piercing guns.

two, my prescription is so strong I can never have rimless glasses, just on the off chance that I would ever get drunk enough to go back on number one.



Elspode  Monday Jan 24 11:17 PM

I couldn't possibly want to see badly enough to do that to myself. I'd get a seeing eye bimbo or something first.



lumberjim  Tuesday Jan 25 12:56 AM

good things get better, bad things get worse.....ugly things get uglier.

jag 's right. friggin contact lenses, jackass! why not pierce your chest and stick a pen through it? oh, right, you already have a perfectly good pocket protector.....ugly greasy hair havin' no chin, goat faced twerp. He's the next marilyn Manson, I guess?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jan 25 05:25 AM

It's art. About as stupid as much "art" is these days.
btw- Welcome to the Cellar, Buckethead



Roosta  Tuesday Jan 25 05:38 AM

Is it just me, or have they done a real good job of lining the little connecting bar up to his face? Those lenses are about as pissed as me on new years eve!



Syrinx  Wednesday Jan 26 03:01 AM

A couple things from the linked article. First, he's unable to wear contacts, for whatever reason. He says that he sleeps and showers with the glasses on. No mention of how he cleans them. However, taking them on/off requires getting out a little screwdriver and removing them from his face! About 5-10 mins work - he believes that's comperable to contact lenses. I beg to differ, at least for removal.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Jan 26 12:46 PM

If he gets contacts he can use the hole for;



Syrinx  Wednesday Jan 26 12:51 PM

Okay, that's just scary!



404Error  Wednesday Jan 26 04:44 PM

I'd bet if that had a plug you could make toast on it!



Troubleshooter  Wednesday Jan 26 05:00 PM

I'm not uncomfortable with people wanting to express themselves, but damn people, just damn.



Roosta  Wednesday Jan 26 05:40 PM

I'm sure there would be problems in future with the bar migrating through bone/skin and all the focus problems that would accompany it. I think i'd rather keep shoving them north with a finger.



capnhowdy  Wednesday Jan 26 08:33 PM

"But surely you wouldn't hit a guy with glasses,would you?"
Fuckin' A.......Especially one as stupid as this dude.
Someone pierces their johnson.....they are stupid but noone (or hardly anyone) knows.
This guy is wearing a sign....
Reeking of " please; could I get some attention over here?"
I reckon there are pioneers for everything. After all somewhere in a galaxy far, far away, some guy took the first taste of ........well the johnson. YUK!
There are (imo) degrees in idiocy.
To me this guy is not an idiot. Probably couldn't spell it.
He's an (Ithink I may have discovered this word)..... IDOT.
I reckon next we'll have pierced-fixed condoms for pencil dix.
I'll apologize later for this post.......

Never hit a guy with glasses. A baseball bat works much better.


dragonett  Friday Jan 28 12:39 PM

I just have to stir the pot. my ears are pierced at the very upper part and I wear small curved barbells there. I got tired of having a sore ear from jamming one of those earbud things for the cell phone in my ear. so I put an aligater clip on it and now when I stay on the phone for long periods of time I clip the earbud to my earring.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jan 29 12:33 AM

What could be better than functional as well as decorative.

footfootfoot  Sunday Jan 30 09:54 PM

I spend the better part of my day being sure (or trying to) not to pierce, saw, drill, hammer, screw, nail or otherwise perforate my body. It works better when the juices stay inside and the bacteria, sawdust, metal filings etc, stay outside.

Call me old fashioned.

I understand intellectually what it is all about but I don't get it. Despite my sig line.



Yharr  Thursday Feb 10 02:34 PM

I could imagine setting the piercing so that rather than having a screw attachment, setting a countersunk magnetic attachment point, so you just click each side of the glasses on or off, and you could have multiple styles but with the same magnetic attachment point. Prescription sunglasses, etc. And if someone punches you they'll just fall off. These countersunk magnets are strong enough to keep sunglasses clipped to the appropriate frames on a speedboat, so I think that would work out quite nicely.



wolf  Thursday Feb 10 02:37 PM

But what if they made you crosseyed, like the Optigrab?



Yharr  Thursday Feb 10 02:42 PM

wear one side as an eyepatch to correct the lazy eye. for that matter, this could usher in a new era of anti-symmetry what with wearing mismatched specs...
