But will she regret it when she’s 90?

Going to the opposite end of the age scale, James Raimar from from Holey Body in Saginaw, Michigan did a pair of 18ga lobes on a client he describes as “80 and fucking rad!!!” I hope I’ve still got spunk in me when I’m eighty!

  1. Awwee, reminds me of the replacement grandma I grew up with. I miss her much…

  2. The first picture made me hope she was getting a tongue piercing.

    That would’ve been super rad.

  3. Hoorah Jim, way to make modblog!

    That lady must be awesome, if I ever see her hanging around old Town I’m going to give her a massive hug.

  4. This makes me smile. More people, old and young need to take a lesson here and get the lighten up and stop taking life so seriously 🙂 I have been trying to get my grandparents to go get tattoos with me but no luck.

  5. It just goes to show that even mainstream looking grannies have a bit of mod love in them 🙂

    11–Hey, I would have been ecstatic for her if she decided to get a genital piercing. Maybe next time she will.

  6. hahahahaa shes flipping us off…what a great woman! its so easy to forget that older people were in fact not “born yesterday”. this is a great reminder! 😀

  7. Awww, thats about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I love the more “radical” grandparents. Its always refreshing.

    PS. His opalite tunnels are amazing.

  8. I love it! And the headline makes me chuckle. Oh how I miss my grandma, I didn’t even have time to take her to piercing parlour’s.

  9. The last pic made me laugh. She looks like she’s having a great time too. Old ladies with attitude ftw!!

  10. I am unworthy, I am unworthy! What a way to show the limitations of age the finger.

  11. I find it interesting how you will see plenty of older men with tattoos and piercings, but not so much women…

    I wonder if she’ll stretch her piercings.. 🙂

  12. Yeah Jim!!!!
    Nice plugs, I have the same ones. Did you get that lady’s digits?

  13. That’s cute! My grandmother is in her 70′s and she recently got her lobes pierced for the first time as well… I couldn’t convince her to get them done by a needle, but all went well and she’s so excited to be able to finally wear real earrings after all these years!

  14. Aww my grandmother got hers pierced for the first time at 80 as well! She was visiting one of her kids in Israel ind just randomly decided to go for it.

  15. How awesome. Hey, and if she wanted genital work, Jim does an amazing job, especially with putting up with my hollering. She looks a lot like a lady that I work for (and she’s about 20 years this lady’s senior).

  16. Awwww! that lady is so cool! I have a client who has been coming into the studio for years and he turned 81 last year, his genital mods never cease to impress 🙂

    I hope im that cool when im 80!
