Long before Lenny Kravitz’ pierced penis unexpectedly tumbled out of his pants to the shock and delight of his fans at a recent concert in Europe, which by the way attracted the attention of Steven Tyler who tweeted his disappointment at not knowing Lenny’s secret, It was revealed in NY Mag in 2011 that he got his “pubic piercing” because he wanted it. (Do you, Lenny.) Also, his mother left him a diamond and he thought, What better place to put the family jewels than by the family jewels?”
Here in Los Angeles some of the winners CBS Local’s Top Piercing Shops already carry a selection of luxe piercings that are ready to answer a projected demand. In the wake of #penisgate piercer Saint James Rajewski not to be confused with Chris Saint, from Rajewski’s home base at Los Angeles Body Jewelry and Studio City Tattoo had some very stylish suggestions for LA-Story piercing fans who are on trend.
Here’s an excerpt from the full interview to whet your appetite –
LA-Story: Who are your favorite body jewelry designers and why?
Saint James: That’s a tough one to give a concise answer on.. There are so many amazing jewelry companies out there these days. They have varying focuses on the style of jewelry, materials etc. So regarding the current topic I would have to certainly say BVLA (Body Vision Los Angeles)
is one of my absolute favorites as far as unique design with all prior stated higher end metals and gems. They are the top of the food chain when it comes to golds, platinums, etc and precious stones like diamonds or rubies and such. Anatometal is another favorite as such a well rounded company that carries all of our basic steel and titanium, yet also a wide variety in gold, diamonds and unique design. For post healed jewelry and innovative design i would have to say that Tawapa, Diablo Organics and Maya Jewelry are some of my other favorites.This list of my choice companies is certainly more extensive than I’ve stated here though…
Who is Saint James Rajewski?
My name is Saint James Rajewski, I am a 20 body piercing/modification veteran and an educator in all facets. I have pierced and instructed in 49 states and a small handful of varying other countries. My main drive in my work is to aid in one’s unique self expression and to comfort them during a vulnerable moment while going through their rite of passage. I am a facilitator of positive energy and intention via body alterations and adornments. Helping you adorn your temple and to realize what a temple it is. I’m also an internationally recognized performance artist in such acts as human suspension and other varying acts that show human transcendence.
