Radio on the Internet: Real Talk with Will and Nicholas

I met Nicholas Adams a few years ago in Las Vegas at the APP Conference and Expo. He was wearing a skin tight Fred Perry, had a Bill the Butcher gleam in his eye and called me a Geezer. Over the course of our friendship he’s been an occasional houseguest, an Uncle to my Italian Greyhound (who he calls Suzanne despite it being a male hound named Bailey) and even married one of my favorite people in the world.

He’s also the funniest person I’ve ever met.

My newer friend Will sat down with Nicholas on his “podcast” to discuss the trials and tribulations of being an on-the-road body piercer; if that sounds like your cup of tea you should check it out. From the show’s description:

In this weeks episode, we speak about a  topic that is gaining quite a bit of momentum in the industry. That topic is being a Traveling Body Piercer. As we see, the demand for a unique individual that can seamlessly cover days, or even weeks at high end studios. It is becoming clear that this is a  viable option for a body piercer.

That brings us to this weeks guest, the journeyman himself, Nicholas Adams. Nicholas has been exclusively traveling the country working in some of the most well-known studios across America. We take some time to discuss the pros and cons of traveling, what we both think is best for your social media and what it takes to be a rambling man in this industry.

You can listen to it here: Life on the Road.

I never would have imagined that I would have gone to the Detroit Metro area to relax, but I did. I got to sleep in a guest room, have a nice comfy bed, have privacy and my own bathroom. I didn’t want to do anything but work and sleep. It ruled.

I got off the plane from Seattle and Tiffany ( @dv8piercing ) scooped me up and took me to what she described as, and I’m sure I’m paraphrasing, “Probably the only time you’ll be able to eat Vegan Comfortably while you’re in Michigan.”. It was so tight! I got a macro-biotic plate, since my body definitely needed it, and a Mediterranean Phyllo plate, strictly for the taste! I was so hungry! Continue reading

The view from seat 12A on United flight 203 is an introspective one. “Who am I?”, “What have I accomplished?”, “ What is my identity?”. Ya know, the usual line of questioning you barrage yourself with at 5:30 in the morning, on 45 minutes of restless sleep, as you embark on a life changing 6 month long body piercing tour across America, ending with a move to another country to live with your incredible, Canadian wife. Ya know, the usual. And then I remembered something a dear friend of mine said to me: “Not everybody has the guts to do what they want.”.
