Information released late last week by the Ohio Department of health proves I think that some people have become unhinged or have been really bored in the days since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic. In explaining new regulations that will allow for facial and oral piercings to resume for the first time since March, with mask wearing requirements in place, department officials said some Ohioans had tried to self-pierce their nasal areas and their tongues and that had resulted in some complications. Who would have figured that? Maybe it’s a generational thing, or just a “bob” thing, but I can’t figure out why anyone would want to have their faces or their tongues pierced and have even more difficulty understanding why anyone would try to do so on their own. I’ve been pierced a couple of times with acupuncture needles in failed attempts to quit smoking in the past, I’ve pierce myself with nails, screws, drill bits and a saw blade or two, but never intentionally and that’s as close to body piercing as I want to get. And if you’re wondering how getting your faced or tongue pierced even by a professional is safer than having a drink at a local tavern after 10:00 P.M. you’re not alone. I can’t figure that out either. That’s the way I see it.
