Umm. Oww? [Apr. 7th, 2005|01:25 pm]

Dallas, Tex., artist James Sooy, 22, weary of his eyeglasses
constantly slipping down his nose, had a practical piercing done in
December, inserting a bar through the upper bridge of his nose and
having his prescription lenses affixed to it. Sooy seemed to believe
there was money to be made with the idea, but an optometrist
interviewed by the Houston Chronicle said prescriptions would be
harder to adjust "if you have a hole in your face," and a Houston
body-modification technician said work like Sooy's would require
a longer-than-normal healing time.

Oh man, I do. But I'm happy with pushing them back up my nose or wearing my contacts.

Hey, I would like a 'bib bar' inserted below my chin so that I can attach a bib to catch all the drips....
Or maybe two metal arms extending from my waist so that I can balance a tray there for TV dinners....

Hmmm... I wonder what he was thinking...

"Man, I am sick and tired of exhibiting the minimal effort it takes to push my glasses back up... hey, how about I permanently disfigure my face!"

No lie. I wonder what it would look like.

Bonus points to anyone who can find a picture.
