Revisiting An Old Piercing Studio

Last November we shared with you some images of items we were adding to our studio’s own piercing archives. Those items are remnants of the first studio New Flower’s John Johnson worked in over 20 years ago in Indianapolis. In our studio’s November’s email we included a picture of John and his piercing mentor Kent Fazekas. You can see that picture here.

Below is a new picture of them together taken in Indianapolis in November, more than 20 years after the first.

 Body Accents closed it’s doors in 1999 and the building looked a lot different than it does now, and the image below shows the building today. The studio would have been in the bottom left of this picture. The tree in the front wouldn’t have hidden the neon sign that said “body piercing, branding, and scarification.”
