Venom Piercings Pros & Cons by a Piercer EP79

In Episode 79, DaVo, a Professional Piercer since 1994, covers the Pros and Cons of Venom Piercings or Frog Eye Piercings. The point of this video is to help those deciding if the piercings would be right for them.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment.
