SALON ADDS BODY PIERCING

Body piercing by Sir James has become a part of All About You in the South Coast Center in Harbor.

James Carperitel, who goes by Sir James, calls his business Steel Body Art. He offers body piercing anywhere on the body, not just the ear lobes, he said.

Probably the most popular area of the body people have pierced is their tongue and navel, Sir James said.

Most people who come to see me want unique piercing, he said.

Sir James said he has been doing body piercing for the past 10 years. He became interested in the trade because he had friends in Medford who owned a shop.

He learned how to pierce body parts from them and went on to do an apprenticeship in Medford, Arizona and Los Angeles, he said.

After learning the trade, he came up to Brookings about two years ago. Then less than three months ago he opened his booth at All About You, he said.

Body piercing involves poking a hole through a persons skin. Traditionally this has involved poking a hole through the ear lobe so people can wear an earring.

Today, it has expanded to other parts of the body, including, as in Sir James case, upper and lower lips and tongue.

Little bleeding happens when the body is pierced, he said. But because his piercing instruments do make contact with body fluids, he keeps his tools sterilized.

I use an autoclave like doctors use to sterilize their instruments, Sir James said. The equipment he uses is surgical stainless steel.

Before the procedure takes place, Sir James said he also sterilizes the area to be pierced.

Sir James said his friends also have a tattoo shop. He said his goal is to open one here, too.

Body piercing services may be done by appointment. For an appointment, call All About You at (541) 469-1234.

  • G20 says nearing growth goal, but more needed from Europe
    The Group of 20 leading nations say they are tantalisingly close to adding an extra $2 trillion to the global economy and creating millions of new jobs, but Europe's extended stagnation remains a major stumbling block. The finance ministers and central bank chiefs gathered in the Australian city of Cairns claimed progress on fireproofing the world's financial system and on closing tax loopholes exploited by giant multinationals. They also dealt with the thorny problem of whether to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the G20 leaders' summit in November given events in Ukraine, with the consensus being to maintain diplomatic pressure but leave the door open for his attendance. "We are determined to lift growth, and countries are willing to use all our macroeconomic levers – monetary, fiscal and structural policies – to meet this challenge," said Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey, who hosted the event.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
