Piercings and flying!

Postby Trish » Mon Dec 24, 2012 7:48 am

I went to court to try to fight a ticket about a month ago, and had to go through a metal detector. Only thing that went off was my shoes, none of the piercings did although the guy said my lobes might make it go off (he didn't realize they were made out of stone).
It's called STRETCHING your piercings, not gauging or up - gauging them.

I've never been pulled for piercings, but I now have medical implants that cannot go through a screener, so I have to request a private inspection and flash medical cards at everyone.

I have flown many times and there has never been an issue. However, if the TSA wants to search me, I am going to unzip and slap my flapmeat right down on the table. I hope the table is steel, so that I can go clang clang clang! There ya go sport! Anything else you want to see?

I have been through several airports and it hasn't been an issue for me at all. Only been flagged once actually and that was for going to an event that had metal detectors. He just said it was a zipper and waved me in.

I was told when I went for an mri by the doctor that I would not need to remove them as 316 stainless in the same used for medical implants and non responsive to magnets. She also said they shoulnt set off metal detectors due to being non ferrous. Ive never had a problem with flying or courts.

Never had an issue with my ear piercings but now that i have nipple piercings I am not sure how that would go as I havent flown since October but it should be interesting as I also have anxiety issues all together. My insulin pump however was questioned and swabbed. I thought seriously, you can clearly see that its an insulin pump that is giving me insulin as we speak. The dont treat diabetics any better. many years ago I had a toshiba laptop and it would get searched every single time even though its what I typed my assignments on. I decided after that not to bring my laptop and crank it out when I got home

Hey Scotty,

Great you did your time for the federal did I! First of all, female agents are not allowed to PAT down or be in the same room for "private" pat downs! (it is only of the same sex, with the same sex as a witness) Secondly, if you don't want the TSA around to infringe on your so-called "rights" then let's do away with the agency and see how you feel when the plane your flying on has some bombs aboard. I sure hope your soul is thinking about your "rights" after what is left of your body pollutes the ground down! Nice fantasy though of exposing yourself to a u:Sleep female agent...lmao!

Scotty, you are absolutely right. Not enough people are willing to stand up for their rights in this country. And since when does the whole world need us a babysitters.

So just a quick one - travelled from Wellington, NZ to Sydney, Australia with my 0g SS CBR prince albert in. Usually I would swap down to a 2g but I kept the 0g in this time. Not a beep. Nothing.
