Found on tumblr. She’s running a rather popular healthy/weight-loss blog and has loads of people looking up to her, so I was SO frustrated when I saw this and I had to confirm it. I just hope after I (the anon) asked her that, that I’m not the only person following her who realises how stupid this is.
What’s awful?: Tattooing other people without being trained, and being proud of it and promoting it on a popular tumblr blog to people who are not well-informed!!
How it can be fixed?: Don’t do it and at least don’t promote it!!
Submitter’s Comment: This kid is a total professional because we all know that alcohol and flames sterilize everything.
What’s Awful: The fact that he thinks he is a professional and that everything is clean and sterile when it is not. And the fact that he actually has “customers” Do people not care about their bodies anymore?
How it can be fixed: Find an apprenticeship, learn to pierce properly
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I saw that my friend liked this status on the side news feed on facebook, so I got curious and clicked it (because come on, who doesn’t do that sometimes?) and to my misfortune… I saw this. I cringed so badly.
WHAT’S AWFUL: First off, piercing yourself just because your bored is plain stupid! Second, using a sewing needle to pierce yourself is unsanitary and will most likely end in infection. Lastly…..stretching right away to 10g….how stupid do you have to be to do that? Not to mention this guy is apparently only 13 years old. The fact that people are actually liking this status is even worse.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: DON’T DO IT!!!!!! Don’t be stupid! Go to a professional piercer, get it pierced properly, then wait for a year or so, and then gradually stretch up to 10g!

- SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This is a girl I used to go to college with. It’s her first tattoo. I know she’s not underage and that it was done by a ‘professional’. I don’t know the name of the studio she got this but I wish I knew so I’d NEVER go there.
- WHAT’S AWFUL: Look at those wonky lines and the coloring is so.. terrible. A child could have done better than that. I’d be ashamed to have something like that in my skin.
- HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Go to a REAL professional..
SUBMITTERS COMMENT: A guy from my home town does tattoo’s from his house and I found his ‘official’ page where you can book appointments with him. There is also photos on his friends pages that show them laying on uncovered lounges or just dining chairs lined up to make a bench.
WHAT’S AWFUL: What isn’t awful?! The lines are terrible and not straight at all, with some spots looking like bits have been added in to actually make them join together. The colour is patchy and isn’t even anywhere. The placement of the whole thing is terrible and the ink would probably last a week. You can see remains of other tattoos towards the wrist as well.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Don’t get home jobs! Hopefully this will fully fade out so no one ever has to see it again. Otherwise full palm coverage!
SUBMITTER COMMENT: I was on Facebook when I saw this horrid page.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Unsanitary piercings done by unprofessionals.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Take the page down and go to a professional for a piercing.
Seriously, this is the same as piercing yourself. Death is a very real possibility. I was contemplating, even knowing the risks, of piercing my own lip. Thats amazingly selfish. Please read this. http://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/z5eft/cutting_out_a_12_year_old_something_on_my_abdomen/c61mzdv
Mod comment: I don’t always trust these stories, but this one appears to be legitimate. Don’t risk it, people.
Found this on tumblr, browsing the piercings tag. She says she ‘just pierced [her] tongue web for fun’.
What’s awful: self-piercing and look at that massive barbell! That cannot be comfortable, surely?
Submitter’s comment: This guy stretched his ear from a 10g to a 0g in a little over a minute!
What’s awful?: He stretched way too big way too fast! At the end his ear is pouring blood.
How can it be fixed?: I’m not sure what kind of condition his ear is in now (probably terrible,) but he should either take the jewelry out or get his lobe removed depending on the damages!
Not removed! Maybe reconstructed if he’s had issues like that. Chances are he has a fuckton of scar tissue, which removing the plug and doing massages should help. - Kat
When I was a baby my mom got my ears pierced with a gun, which was very usual for the 90s. They eventually got infected and had to take them out. When I was in the first grade I begged her to let me get my ears pierced again because every other girl did. She took me to claire’s and it took me about an hour or so to actually let them pierce them because I was scared. They gave the usual speach about turning them every so often and gave me their ear cleaner. After having them in for about a week or so one of my ears became swollen and engulfed with scabs while my other ear was oozing. I had to be taken to the emergency room, pinned down, screaming my head off just to get them taken out. Now I have lopsided scars on my ears but that won’t stop me from wanting them pierced again.
