Street performer pulls a nail from his nostril as spectators react.
Whether you go for a walk at the Huntington Beach Pier or lay out at the beach, as you approach the pier, you’ll likely run into a street performer that literally nails it. I’ve been going to the HB Pier often for many years now and have always seen the crowd gather around this man that performs this act of hammering a nail into his nostrils. Normally I walk right past it and find something else to photograph, but today I watched.
I don’t know what was more interesting, a man nailing and then pulling the nail out of his nose with a pair of pliers or the reaction of the people as he did it. Not sure if it’s all a trick or he’s really doing it, but the crowd gasped and were overall very entertained.
These type of street performers are a very special breed. I couldn’t do it. But in some ways, they fill a need that the people want even though they may not know they want it.
