Hi. This is my first post so Iíll very briefly introduce myself then Iíll ask my hopefully not too obvious question. My nameís Kyle. I do fire juggling and other fiery skills. In the last few years Iíve been learning sideshow skills as well (though not performing them yet - maybe one day). I do blockhead, basic pin cushion/stitching stuff to your skin, bed of nails, ligthbulb and Iíve been learning sword swallowing for the last few weeks. I have a few people around me who have been helping me learn these skills so Iím doing it right (but no one who does piercing weights). I enjoy learning sideshow because I feel itís pushing my perceived limitations of the body. Iíve been a lurker here for a few weeks now. Iíve also been the recent recipient of some of Slimís amazing notes, which are great thank-you very much Krista and indeed Slim.

So introductions out the way, hereís my question. Iíve done a search for it but couldnít find any specific information; maybe thatís because itís a foolish question but here goes: is there a preferable way for having your ears and nipples pierced to learn lifting heavy objects with them? Just to clarify Iím talking about paying a professional to pierce me, not doing it myself. I know there are different ways of piercing but I donít know enough to ask the right questions when I get pierced. Also on a side note how long do you need to wait before the weights? Presumably at least a few months.

Any information will be much appreciated. You can PM me if you feel it necessary but I presume the answers should be okay to post.

Cheers (Yes, Iím British.)

Hey Nippulini I've sent you a PM.

Unfortunately I've not been learning from sideshow professionals, just people who have experience with individual stunts. One person taught me nail in the nose, another showed me some pincushion; a friend occasionally performs lightbulb and I actually made a bed of nails off the internet.

Iím well aware of the dangers of learning these skills without proper teaching. I learnt fire breathing off the internet and didnít find out until much later how dangerous it was. I quickly stopped and have serious reservations about learning skills off the internet without talking to people who have done them for a few years and know the consequences.

However, I really want to try this (pierced weights) and I suspect it is something you can learn very slowly without too much risk. I have also read up on it on this board and I think I am aware of the dangers - for example Nippuliniís rather scary sounding 2004 injury.

And I should add I was hoping to pick your brains sometime down the line when the necessary piercings have healed enough to be functional. I'm only talking about learning to a basic level. Obviously any advanced version of this skill would require personal tuition.

Wow, just got a very detailed and extremely helpful PM from Nippulini - thanks a lot. It is much more complicated then I was imagining it - me thinking you could just get a piercing and try it. NOPE. As with everything there's a definite art to it. The moral of the story is: never underestimate sideshow skills!

When you do, they bite you. Hard. Even the easy ones.

You should take lessons from the best,,,not take chances !!
I understand the best in the UK is a chap called Kondini !!!

Expert at everything, generouse to a fault, highly entertaining and extremely good looking. All the lesser talents have moved or work in the USA due to the fact that Kondini`s fire here in the UK is too hot to handle.

He also does a very fine line in sponge balls.

Search the net and you may be lucky enough to find him !!

Ken also forgot all that lot about bondage fetishes and a penchant for S&M... just look at his picture. Here in the US, we thought he was a lost member of the Village People.

Ken can't help it. Apparently, many of those wacky Brits are forgetting their language.

So now they're dropping punctuation along with R's at the ends and T's in the middle?

Forget it! Too many commas, not enough apostrophes. You're not speaking the same language.

"England's second-largest city has decided to drop apostrophes from all its street signs, saying they're confusing and old-fashioned."

What? Are they kidding?

"If I want to go to a restaurant, I don't want to have an A-level (high school diploma) in English to find it."

Anyone that confused by a punctuation mark shouldnít be allowed out on roads without supervision.

I don't know if you guys have commercials for the "Life Alert" beeper/necklace in the UK, but Ken that sounds too close to the classic line "I've fallen and I can't get up!"
