http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRvs5SZZoWk SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: What’s Awful? Everything! So unsanitary. ________________________________________ MODERATOR’S COMMENT: 1. If it’s just as much as a pro, WHY WOULD YOU NOT GO TO A PRO? 2. TWO HOURS??!?!? A pro could have the piercing done in two minutes. 3. Look how shallow that piercing is. It’s like…a...
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Well, this is my first tattoo. I was too impatient to wait for my brother to take me to a shop and ended up going to a scratcher. WHAT’S AWFUL: They’re just bad. They’re uneven, at different angles, and different sizes. The shading is all stripe-y, too. It used to look even worse. I was only a few months away from being legal to get a tattoo. I...
So I had this friend that I used to be quite close with from my work, and about 6 months ago we were talking to each other about modifications. We both expressed interest in stretching our ears, and she came up with the idea of starting to stretch together. This friend of mine however hadn’t even had her ears pierced, so she said she would get them pierced the next week and then start...
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This girl posted a video of her tattooing herself on facebook. It’s in Dutch, and she basically says ‘I tattooed myself, not kidding’ and ‘nope I didn’t practice but it went alright’. Someone else mentions she’s sitting at her mom’s kitchen table. WHAT’S AWFUL: The table’s cluttered, she’s sitting at a...

screamed-the-dustspeck asked: For the "bobby pin earrings" post- those may not actually be bobby pins, and I doubt that they are, as bobby pins would be too large to fit in the average 20g-16g piercing. I have earrings very similar to this made by Harry Mason. TL;DR. The OP should fact check a bit better before criticizing.
my little story and advice
background:I was looking for a tattooist to get a new tattoo done and basically get pricing up good places, my cousin emailed me telling me she had just had her friend do her tattoo in memory of her niece that died and linked me to this picture telling me that he is amazing at tattoos, she admitted she had it done in his home and he is very new to tattoos but hes brilliant considering he’s...
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I was searching the ‘dermal’ tag on tumblr when I found this text post: Piercings, you shall be mine soon. So I found a site where I can buy dermal anchors and the kit to pierce myself. Hoping to get it after I get my Christmas money. Then hip dermals here I come! Fuck going to have other people do it for me. I like doing it myself. Eventually...
dig-adaytipper asked: This has probably been said before, so sorry if it has, but one thing that bugs me is that a lot of people let their piercings become more and more infected because they're too ashamed to go to a piercer or doctor. Believe me, it is so much better to go to a professional and get your mod seen to rather than let it fester. Pros have almost always seen worse, and they're trained to know...
SAFE PIERCING: Guns vs. Needles. The pros and... →
safepiercing: Guns should never be used on anything, period. There is no pro to a piercing gun. Piercing guns are NEVER sterilized in those little mall kiosks or stores, seriously. Ask to see their sterilization equipment and they’ll most likely show you an alcohol wipe. So an alcohol wipe is all that…
This is for all the people that tend to call every...
(SOURCE) SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: It’s an actual condition, more commonly found in people with darker complexions (15 times more likely actually) and generally severely overgrows the original wound. They are also prone to continually grow even after the original wound has healed. They’re generally only removable with medical assistance.
