Excellent quality piercing I got my first piercing (other than ears) at Mom's, on the corner of Haight and Masonic.
I turned 18 in the summer of 2002, and proceeded to get the lip piercing (legally, finally!) I'd always wanted.
I shelled out a good sized amount of money--it's worth it here, because they do an excellent job, and I'd heard that they were really clean and safe.
It was fun, the piercer and his attitude turned me on, and I left loving my piercing. I still have it.
I also got kicked out of my house by the parents, that day. I crashed at a friend's house, moving on after a few weeks to my aunt's mobile home. From there, I planned to save enough money to move to San Francisco--which is how I got here in the first place XD
