C’est dur d’être plus original que les créations de Jimmy Buddha Designs, c’est dur de viser plus beau que Diablo Organics! Leurs bijoux en matériaux mixtes comme ceux ci en ébène tigré et quartz fumé ne sont pas égalable!!

patrick-san asked: Why do you think bodyartforms is so bad? o:
I’m always a bit surprised when I get surprised reactions from people when I talk about my opinions on Body Art Forms. I recently had somebody through private messages on here shocked that I didn’t support them and said she had never heard anybody say that before. Basically, it comes down to this. I don’t support any piercer, jewelry company, online retailer, etc, that sells low quality body jewelry and BAF sells a LOT of low quality jewelry. People give them praise because they sell a few high quality brands, but that doesn’t matter to me, if anything all it does is piss me off that they have the nerve to put good jewelry on the shelf next to low quality junk.
They drastically undercut prices on quality jewelry which make it difficult or impossible for reputable piercing studios to compete with their prices. The reason they can do this is because high quality jewelry isn’t their money maker. They make WAYYYY more money on all that Metal Mafia and Halftone garbage. So if their biggest source of income is on low quality jewelry, they can afford to make less on high quality jewelry. Reputable body piercing studios don’t have this luxury because we ACTUALLY care about your health and safety. We won’t compromise our morals to make a buck. BAF can’t say the same. They can have the best customer service in the world, smile and laugh with you on the phone or be friendly through an email with you, but if they’re willing to sell you a piece of scrap metal that they call jewelry, they absolutely don’t care about you.
Support this industry, support your local reputable body piercing studio, purchase jewelry from your piercer. Jewelry sales help keep our doors open. The more you support online retailers like BAF, next time you need a piercing or need help inserting that jewelry you just purchased online, you might not have a local reputable piercing studio to help you out anymore if you’re not giving them your business. It might be a few dollars more, but we’re not “overcharging”, we’re charging what we need to in order to keep the jewelry coming in and to keep the doors open.
This concludes my rant on online retailers.
Thank you A.J.!
