Pugh: I was inspired by seeing people with piercings when I was younger. I value self-expression. My piercings are a big part of my identity. Where and how I chose to wear piercings is also important. I’ve also got a deeper connection with my body’s healing process.
Hatchett: How was your day?
Pugh: Today is a good day. It snowed and was 32 degrees, but nature is amazing and experiencing a piece of nature that doesn’t happen often like snow in Alabama is most appreciated.
