Pierced Glasses


This morning I opened the Washington Post and was greeted by a story about the new new thing in body modification: "pierced glasses."

Dallas artist James Sooy (above), 22, was getting tired of his glasses always sliding down his nose.

His solution?

He pierced the bridge of his nose with a barbell and attached his glasses to the bar.


Pure genius.

Nothing rubs against the ears.

No frames or stems that cost an arm and a leg and are vulnerable to breaking.

"It's neat sometimes when you're talking to someone and they pop their head to the side and notice something is not quite right."


Exploring further I learned that Sooy hopes to offer his creation (patent pending) by June for $75 to $100 a pop (lenses not included).

His website, www.piercedglasses.com, has all the latest.
