Happy 10th birthday, tragus! On this day 10 years ago, I started going to Infinite Body!
I remember 18 May 2011 like it was yesterday. Before that infamous day, I barely visited Philadelphia and I’m not quite sure what spurred me on to visit the Academy of Natural Sciences. However, I decided to check it out and have lunch somewhere.
On the 13th I heard from West Chester University that I got the paid internship with Software Application Training and they wanted me to come in one morning to fill out the paperwork. I decided that I would take the 92 (bus) to West Chester University and after I filled out my papers, I’d head to 69th Street via the 104 (bus).
It only took me 15 minutes to fill out the paperwork and I was free to go. I started my position on 23 May 2011, so I was all set to start. While I was on the bus, I decided that I wanted to add to my piercing collection. I only had 4 piercings back then. I only had a flip phone back then that didn’t have internet access and I remember texting my friend Dave about piercing shops in Philadelphia. The first one he pulled up was Infinite and I decided to check it out after the Academy of Natural Sciences.
After a wonderful late morning and lunch, I headed down to South Street and found Infinite Body Piercing on 4th and South. They were APP, which is gold standard for piercing places. Anna used to be certified by APP and that’s how I know. I was happy to see that. Kellen was my piercer, we had a nice rapport, and I had a nice rapport with the shop. I’m happy to say that I’m still a regular and love the staff! Kellen has since left and there have been staff changes over the years, but regardless, staff has been amazing.
PS: look how naked my ears were!
