I know you probably get a shitload of these, but I just wanted to say thank you. I’m 15 and I’ve wanted a lip piercing for quite some time now, but my mother is not so sure about letting me have it, because the country we live in isn’t exactly educated about piercings and like 80 % of kids get their piercings done by friends. But I’m currently on page 175 of your blog and I have learned so much, I now know how to pick a place to get my piercing, how to take proper care of it, when I can change the jewellery, what should I do if I by any change get an infection… I could probably give a 15 minute speech about it to my mum, and I’m planning on showing her that I’m serious about this and that it didn’t just cross my mind like 5 minutes ago. I’m already saving up for it for my 16th birthday. So yeah, I know that I’m not suppose to submit shit like this, but seriously, a huge thank you to all you beautiful people running this blog, you’ve really helped out a lot of us ignorant and uneducated people.
