Here are a couple of fun little triples I did before I left for #app2014 that I didn’t get a chance to share yet! I love seeing people come in and make unique little combinations of their favorite pieces. #bvla makes it easy though- ALL their pieces are favorites :p #saintsabrinas #safepiercing #tfh #triplehelix #piercing #goldbodyjewelry #gold #appmember (at Saint Sabrina’s)

Mixtec or Aztec lip plugs, Mexico.

 ”In Mesoamerica the labret, or lip-plug, was a piece of jewelry worn only by noble males in Central Mexico. Inserted through a pierced hole in the lower lip, a labret qualified the wearer’s speech and breath as precious.”

These sugar skull plugs from glasswearstudios invoke a traditional design from Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations.  Decorative 1/2” and larger calaveras combine serious and playful themes.  These plugs also mirror the desire to adorn the body.  
One of my favorite things about body modification is the potential to represent not just the incredible visual designs of many traditions, but also the cultural significance.
Día de los Muertos decoration uses striking iconography: bold colors, floral shapes and patterns, the most tangible reminder of mortality—our own bones.  Sugar skulls are painted with bright dyes.  Marigolds are abundant.  This celebration of the deceased often favors intimacy over abstraction, making offerings in a cemetery, school, or family home, and many joyful and even irreverent remembrances of loved ones.
My own experience with this holiday is second hand, growing up Catholic in the American South, where mass is way more likely to be given in Spanish than Latin.  As a kid, watching friends paint these skulls was just the coolest thing.  As an adult, I dig La Calavera Catrina as a strong satirical figure in 20th century Mexican art.  But like many cultural traditions, there’s so much more I can still learn to better understand the people around me before I, too, look like a skull.
