Tired of frames that slip, artist creates alternative
By KRISTIN FINAN

Gross. Weird. Freaky.

James Sooy hears it all.

But when you stick a barbell through the bridge of your nose and screw prescription lenses to it, the 22-year-old Dallas artist admits, you come to expect some criticism.

Beauty is, after all, in the eyeglasses of the beholder.

"Since I've been wearing glasses so long, it was kind of odd," said Sooy, who created the "pierced glasses" that he now sports. "I'd reach up to take them off and I'd realize they were stuck on there."

After years fighting frames that seemed to always slip down his nose, Sooy got a bridge piercing ? a relatively common piercing through the bridge of the nose. In December, he and his friend Oliver Gilson affixed the prescription lenses to it.
