Another Hole Body Jewelry Staff
Dallas K. Davis and his wife Deborah co-own Another Hole and handle all daily duties/operations of the company.
Another Hole Body Jewelry had a self motivated start. It started with Dallas (co-owner) wanting a certain pair of plugs. After searching extensively he found them in a local shop for $90.00. Not having that kind of money to throw around he thought there must be a better way. So he started searching suppliers and found a wholesaler that had the plugs that he wanted so much. But they started in 4g. Oh how big :-] At the time Dallas was only wearing 14g but ordered the plugs and some tapers from the company using a previous business license for custom shirts, banners, business cards, stickers and other promotional items that he and his wife had started to get going. Once the order arrived Dallas had researched stretching enough to start pushing tapers in and in a short while made it up to 4g.
After having achieved his own personal conquest the business mind came into play. What to do with all the 'extra' stuff he had purchased to meet the $100.00 requirement from the wholesaler. Well, he had been doing eBay since 1998 selling garage sale items, sterling silver as well as custom-made T-shirts. So he did what came natural, took some nice clear pictures and listed them on eBay. In no time he made his money back only to re-invest it in more plugs. Dallas and his wife never wanted to carry any of the cheap belly items that were floating around on eBay for a dime a dozen and stick to this policy to this day. At the time they were one of very few eBay sellers that actually sold ear plugs. Size ranged from 14g to about 00g. Now, there are many people selling plugs on eBay and there is even a plugs and tunnels section on eBay.
Another Hole now sells items up to 2" and sometimes larger. They have turned to getting their own stone made to their specifications and selling higher end items like Anatometal, Steel Skin, Industrial Strength as well as Tombstone and many other suppliers. Starting a web site just seemed like a cheaper way to advertise all the items they were now carrying. They even had an online radio commercial and plan on doing more localized radio in the future.
