What’s up in Los Angeles IN CHARACTER Brian Thompson


43, Owner of Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing in West Hollywood


What is it like to be a piercer? It’s a fun job because you’re not spending hours and hours with a client like tattoo artists are. At most, it’s 45 minutes, then you’re on to the next client. And every person’s anatomy is different. You could do 10 nose piercings in a day, but each of the nostrils is unique.


What are the current trends in the piercing world?


Social media really causes trends to take off rapidly. A year and a half ago, almost every person wanted the septum. Then it was nipples, but now that’s starting to slow. My bet for the next trend is the navel. It’s due for a resurgence.


Any advice to someone considering a new hole? I hear people all the time say, “I’m too old.” No. You’re not. If you want it, you should rock it like it’s the hottest thing. ■Brittany Martin


WORD ON THE STREET


The most ridiculous things we’ve overheard in Los Angeles lately


“The last guy I dated was a Virgo, and he hated his mother, which is so typical of Virgos.”


“I’m so old, I can’t


even day drink and night drink in the same day.”


“His beard looks like werewolf pubes.”


“I wish I were


famous enough that someone would do lines of cocaine off my face.”


“I don’t want any sugar in my coffee, just sweetened ice.”

Owner of Cactus Store in Echo Park


“I love gawking at the bonsai at Yamaguchi Bonsai Nursery. I’m not really into nurseries that have hundreds of plants for sale in plastic buckets. I love when people take a single plant and give it a real presence. Yamaguchi is a great place to see that. ”


à Yamaguchi Bonsai Nursery, 1905 Sawtelle Blvd (310-473-5444, yamaguchinursery.com)


Time Out Los Angeles October–December 2016 6


“You know what’s made my life so much easier? Just removing people


who love cats from the dating pool.”
