San Leandro, CA – Skate Shop News: Skateboarding And Piercing Go Hand In Hand

With current runway trends glorifying skateboarders, ’90s rockers and even the Hot Topic era of pop punk, Smith says pangs of nostalgia are what drive many men into his studios today, although some are just in search of a way to subtly enhance their everyday look. “I think it’s split 50/50 between people trying to resurrect something they had in their teenage years, they had it, they got over it, then they realize it’s still open and can put something in it,”  says Colby Smith, a jewelry designer and founder of 108 Atelier in both New York and Los Angeles and has nearly 30,000 Instagram followers, he’s traveled the world to work his magic on some of the chicest women around, including supermodel Candice Swanepoel and actresses Abbey Lee and Zoë Kravitz. “It’s nostalgic in a way, but as we get older, we realize the things we do when we’re younger are actually cooler. Then there’s the other crowd, where it’s an aesthetic choice that fits their style, like this look would be complete with an ear or nose piercing.”

Sure, many probably assume that if you’re not a Lenny Kravitz-level rock star or a trendsetting weirdo like Shia LaBeouf, getting your ear pierced as an adult male would be met with confusion at best and either disappointment or ridicule at worst. However, Smith strongly disagrees. For men who are looking to get pierced, either for the first time or to refill a hole they had in their youth, he suggests a basic hoop in a white or yellow gold as a starting point. “White gold imitates silver, when you were 15 you maybe had some kind of silver earring or stud, then you kind of upgrade it for your more sophisticated 30-year-old life, so you do a gold ring, 18 carat or 22 carat, and it just gives you a little status,” he explains. “Then there’s silver, titanium, surgical steel… those metals feel very masculine to me. Like, steel? What’s more masculine than that?” -Fashionista Mag-
