that's interesting fenris- do others use electronics for piercings,
or is this considered jewelry, basically? if you have a photo or
an illustration, it would be interesting to see. the most I've seen
has been the barcode (UPC) symbol tatooed on someone's back
of their neck in Berkeley, California, besides the costume art.

though, your diode makes me wonder if a light-emitting diode (LED)
might be a potential for an earring, if someone knew electronics it
would probably be very simple- yet, how to configure a very tiny
watch battery, some resisters, maybe even something to make a
very small LED pulse (not sure if a capacitor would do this or not).
then again, with all of this stuff, it gets to be like a wearable 
and i'm sure many wouldn't want to be wearing batteries hanging off
their earlobes with a working electronic circuit.

in any case, thanks for sharing!
