Do you ever feel like quality jewelry is too expensive? I'm a college student and barely make enough to pay for my books, I don't know how I'm ever expected to afford a piercing with those prices.
No I don’t feel that it’s too expensive. If anything it’s pretty affordable to have a hand polished piece of jewelry with a lifetime warranty.
In regards to the entirety of the pricing, you’re also paying for a service. That payment is both feeding a piercer and the business that employs them, to keep food on their table and also profit towards a small business.
You don’t need that piercing, you want that piercing. I want a lot of things, I also work hard to make money to pay for the things I want. If college is your top priority, then do college for now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. If you want extra money to pay for things, get a second job, maybe tutor an underclassman, sell some things you don’t use anymore.
I mean absolutely no offense saying this. But as a piecer, I care about doing my job right, not what your income situation is. That means properly executing a piercing and using quality jewelry that is properly suited for your body.
