The Exotic Body
Michael Hare, senior piercer and owner of The Exotic Body, not only adorns birthday suits with hoops, barbells, and jewels, he also teaches seminars in the latest piercing techniques and methods. Opening in 1990, the team of body-art professionals sets up shop at one of the first piercing studios in Sacramento, and are all trained in safety and sanitation practices, as well as the art of customer service. This includes assuaging fears about getting a new tattoo or piercing or reaffirming that the whale scene in Pinocchio is fictional. Aftercare tips may be found on the studio's FAQ page, covering topics such as how to clean piercings, what products to use, and how to change jewelry.
