Kara: The daf [inaudible 19:51-19:56]
Endy: I was thinking Jasper, I haven't tried that one yet but it is also next to mine. People have been getting those to apparently cure migraines. Now, we're not 100% sure if that is the sole purpose and if it actually works, but that's usually the reason people come in for it or people will have questions about it and they usually have pressure headaches or constant migraines and they just want to alleviate that. Apparently, isn't the daith a pressure point or something we're talking about?
Kara: Yeah. It was pressure point right there and that's why a lot of people. My theory on it is, I feel it's kind of a psychological thing too. I guess it is a pressure point and the needle going through your skin like that. Any kind of piercing there is going to be that pressure there especially about feeling too. So I feel like in the beginning, it will most likely like help those headaches but honestly, I told customers if they're curious about it, I said it's a 50:50 shot because a lot of people I've heard conflicting things for like, yes. I used to have headaches every single day like chronic migraines. I got this pierced and then I haven't had one since then and it has been 10 years. I've also heard other customers who said like, yeah, it works sometimes. It doesn't really work now that it's healed, but I like push down on the extra pressure. It does help.
Silas: Yeah, that's the only time I've really heard about it really working for people is when they feel migraine or something coming on pushing and pulling down on that piercings, I guess. Activate the pressure point, but again, verdict is out.
Silas: Do either of you have your daith pierced?
Endy: I don't.
Kara: I think it was me and Anastasia actually talking about where it goes considering doing it just to sort of test that theory and hear our experiences with it.
Silas: As guinea pigs.
Kara: Yeah. See? I love it.
Kara: And I'm just like, also if it doesn't work, you still have a cute piercing.
Silas: If I stop getting headaches, what a fun idea [inaudible 22:00-22:02]
LGBTQ plus community, flag themselves through the help of piercing
Endy: And last but not least, piercings can help people to identify communities. Personally, I am not straight. I am clear. I'm in the LGBTQ plus community and some of my piercings that I've gotten was kind of to flag other people to let them know that I'm clear. I just got my full work done and I have rainbow of balls. So it gives me more of I guess it can kind as a flag for people to see and be like, okay, yeah, she might not be straight because I feel like without that I don't really have anything that will let people know that I'm not straight and I would prefer other people to smell it without me screaming it off the rooftop so I figure it having like a
rainbow earring would be the next best thing if someone happens to look at my ear when they first meet me, they could be like, okay.
