Few days back I showed you Pierced EyeGlasses by James Sooy. My earlier article was based on old information so we thought to ask James himself concerning anything latest in these Pierced Eyeglasses. And, yes there is lot new which you would like to check out. I have simply put his words for you after every question.
Bodypiercingblog: What instigated you in coming up with such a plan?
James Sooy: I came up with the idea in highschool. A few years later, I found out a friend of mine, Oliver Gilson, had been milling motorcycle parts for himself and asked if he could do something on the scale of the glasses. The answer was yes.
Bodypiercingblog: How much time did you take in accomplishing the set task?
James Sooy: It only took a few minutes to draw out some plans, a couple hours to mill the pieces, but over a month to get the screws we needed.
Bodypiercingblog: Have you done the piercing by own self or did you take
James Sooy: I went to a local piercing shop in Dallas to have my piercing done.
Bodypiercingblog: Could you shed some light on the material used in making of the eyeglasses?
James Sooy: We used the original stainless steel barbell the peircing shop had given me and milled the brackets out of aluminum. I used some lenses out of an old pair of glasses of mine, and cut the nose pads straight from the old frames.
Bodypiercingblog: Have you launched any marketable version of it?
James Sooy: Nothing as of yet.
Bodypiercingblog: What do you have to say about 'stretching' or 'unpleasant tearing' related to these eyeglasses?
James Sooy: There is no unwanted stretching or tearing associated with modern piercings. Pierced glasses are no exception. We use magnets that allow the lenses to be pulled away harmlessly if they are tugged on.
Bodypiercingblog: Is it more convenient or portable than the ordinary eyeglasses? If yes, how?
James Sooy: There are minor conveniences and inconveniences - it all equals out.
Bodypiercingblog: Can our reader know how much they'll have to pay to own these eyeglasses?
James Sooy: There's no way to tell for sure, but they should be around $100 for the frames.
Bodypiercingblog: Who is James in flesh and blood?
James Sooy: I'm a 24 year-old artist born in Dallas, Texas and living in the San
Francisco Bay Area.

After knowing EyeGlasses and the maker James better, we walked around to ask people what they think about these Eyeglasses...
Some gave a positive response and some negative. There were people, who were still not ready to accept these Pierced EyeGlasses on their nose. One said, 'He should be insane enough to wear these EyeGlasses.' Nevertheless, there were some, who liked the concept and said, 'I would definitely like to pierce these Eyeglasses bridge as they look very different and I love to be different always.'
