SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This was a random dude I had on facebook. Just the tip of the ice berg. He works in one of the worst shops in the city, and brags about doing the most “outrageous” work he can think of. He is very experienced and his work is sterile - but that’s about where the positives stop. He has a creative mind, but not even nearly enough knowledge on anatomy or body modification to utilise it. Other work of his includes corset piercings using CBR’s, multiple piercings crammed so close together they’ll never settle (we’re talking 6 in one case), nipple piercings intentionally done so deep they’re in the areola, piercing through the fatty part of a finger between the first two knuckles using a circular barbell… you get the idea.
WHAT’S AWFUL: In this particular one, it’s GUM piercings. Through the gum between teeth. Common sense alone can point out how intensive the potential dental damage is.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Take it out. Never let him attempt his “creative” work on you again. Also go to a dentist to get whatever damage he’s already caused fixed.
Just gonna point out that a lot of corsets are done with CBRs by reputable piercers; they’re usually only meant to be temporary anyway, so it doesn’t really matter.
I know this subject is up for a lot of interpretation, whether you consider these things “awful mods” or just “different, possibly misunderstood mods.”
