Hope I don't get in too-much trouble for copying a Cold Steel review that appears in S.F. Citywatch, but this customer's testimonial sounded so painless that I couldn't help myself:
[ BEGIN QUOTE ]
I had been wanting to get a labret on the left side of my mouth for the longest time. We had just gotten out of court and had nothing to do for the rest of the day. Since everything came out fine in court he decided to treat me out for going with him. I did not feel like going to the shop that I already knew since the previous time I was in the old shop here in Hayward I really didn't like the atmosphere. SO we decided to take a drive out to Frisco. [ EDITOR'S NOTE: NEVER, NEVER CALL SAN FRANCISCO "FRISCO", PLEASE ]
Since it was still early we pictured by the time we got there the shop would be open. He said this place was where he got his first piercing ever so he recommended it. I was surprised the setting I saw. This places is so clean and the atmosphere was just so relaxing and clean. I told Mr.E my piercer what I wanted to get done. He gave me a price which compared favorably to how much it would have costed [ SIC ] me in Hayward, so it was a good deal. I looked at the jewelry and I wanted to get something smaller since I work in a corporate office and well -- you know how it is. He pulled out what he had in-stock and after about 5 min of looking he found the smallest size he could use.
As I stepped into the room I sat and waited. He was so clean he changed gloves about 3 times 1. When he took out his supplies and gave me the rinse to clean my mouth with. 2. After he threw my cup away. and 3. When he was to do my piercing after he had marked it. And when asking where did i want it he got it right on the first mark. As i sat and waited he said I would feel a small pinch I closed my eyes took a deep breath and by the time I opened them I was done. He was real good about giving me aftercare instructions.
This place is the bomb burrito, man... I defiantly [ SIC ] am looking forward to another piercing. I don't know about the tattoos but as I was waiting I checked out a album or two. They seem very cool too..

So there you have it -- a glowing testimonail from another satisfied customer of Cold Steel... Lip rings appear to be all the rage these days, but I doubt if I could ever get up enough courage to have one done, even if I really, really, really wanted one... I am such an un-styleish old wimp...   How about you?
