Looking for installer near Kansas City

Hi all, I’m new here and looking to get my first implant. Before I start calling piercers in my area, I was wondering if anyone else is nearby and has already worked with a professional around here? I’m in the Kansas City, KS area, specifically Olathe.

Thanks!

I checked out the piercing partners but there are none listed near you, nor are there on the KSEC Cyborg map , I also trawled this forum with no luck sorry BUT any body piercer should be able to implant this for you.

These should help

If you have no luck, A doctor, nurse or medic would be able to but they will likely take more convincing… but just provide them with the same information

A self or assisted install is possible, but not recommended

good luck, let us know how you go

Well, I finally got both my implants bought and delivered and went to a piercer to ask about installing them…and was shut down immediately, before I could even finish describing the implant. This might be more difficult than I thought. Time for the slow task of visiting every shop in the city. Weird how one person’s initial reaction can be horror and wanting to have nothing to do with it, while my initial reaction was “Woah, that’s awesome, where have these things been all my life?!” Polar opposites.

Hey Buddy,

we are clutching are staws here, because not only are you middle 'Murrica you are surrounded, but nowhere near DT partners.

We haven’t seen him in a while be we can try dropping a @STUNTMAN_LUNCHBOX

he might even be your neighbour…

How many piercer have you got lined up…don’t forget the

Thanks, I did follow the Approaching a Professional guide, but he just had no interest whatsoever in reading through the material and hearing me out. Soon as I mentioned it could store contact info and be read by a phone, he ended the discussion. I’ll keep trying! I had a second place in mind but their piercer is out of town right now, so I’ll just look around some more. There are several shops in the general Kansas City area I can try. Thinking about it though, I suspect the first guy’s reaction is going to be pretty common in this part of the country, so it might take some time.

Worst case, I can always drive to Colorado or Kentucky and spend a night. Hopefully it won’t come to that, but it’s worth it if becomes the only option!

If that was me, I would dedicate a day to it.

I would:

Not all, but you get the point

Obviously you can ignore the dentists on the list

Put my implants in the car (you can show them the professional quality, plus all the accoutrement, and if you are lucky, they might do it there and then…)

Looking at the Map, Just drive North to South :compass: (or Sounth to North)

If you get turned away, ask the piercer if they have any reccomendations, then add those to your printed piercer map.

If you don’t manage to get it done on the day, then hopefully you manage to get an appointment…

Anyway, that’s what I would do…

That’s a good idea. Maybe I’ll just take a day off work next week and go up the line. Trying to set up appointments to talk hasn’t been that easy so far anyway, so just walking in might be easier.

I think it’s going to be worst case.

Kansas regulations on Body piercers exclude several relevant things…

Use of personal client jewelry or any apparatus or device presented by the client for use during the initial body piercing shall be prohibited. Each establishment shall provide presterilized jewelry, apparatuses, or devices, which shall have metallic content recognized as compatible with piercing services.

And

This act shall not be construed to authorize a licensed body piercer to implant or embed foreign objects into the human body or otherwise to engage in the practice of medicine and surgery.

They are also not allowed to perform scarification or branding, or pierce with anything other than a needle.

It looks like Missouri might be a better state to try in if that isn’t too far away.

Thanks @Zwack, that’s good to know. If it’s actually prohibited in Kansas, maybe it’s not worth trying any of the shops here. I’m basically on the border with Missouri though, so I can try to stick to shops on that side.

It can be a bit of a nightmare tracking down the legal prohibitions, some are at the state level, others at the county level, and there may even be some at a city level.

Kansas state regulations are pretty strict (as are Oregon). But I have found some county ones that were equally strict, and stricter than the rest of their state.
