hananathebanana33 asked: My housemate, after a night out, invited a guy who works in a local scene shop (Blue Banana) back to ours. I complained about their piercing because they use guns "only" for ears and nose. I tried to explain the danger of piercing guns and they were having non of it, saying guns were more accurate. It's so sad how uneducated people are when it comes to piercings. Why don't they...

giaandstuff asked: purchasing body jewelry from Hot Topic is WRONG. I bought a set of 12g plugs from them and my earlobes swelled up and the plugs were stuck in my ears.Hot Topic does not or ever will have quality jewelry. Do NOT buy cheap Hot Topic jewelry EVER.
Another "piercing gun" scare story.
This took place while I was staying with my back-then boyfriend in Adelaide, Australia. I lived in a suburb (I don’t recall seeing ANYONE with tattoos; those that were considered “alternative” were merely teens with too much black make-up), and the only place to get piercings were the jewelry store in a mall an hour away. Back then I did not research nor know about how bad...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgir7Ieysds SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Saw this while watching TLC and thought I’d share\ WHAT’S AWFUL: This guy is doing tattoos at home, probably in an unsanitary environment, and while sitting close to his 18 month old child HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Get an actual shop and be professional and KEEP THE BABY OUT ...
SOURCE: Myself SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This was my first cartilage piercing done with a needle. I got this piercing done at Steady Tattoo in Minneapolis over a year ago. The piercer asked me what kind of jewelry I wanted for the hole—in which I believe he shouldn’t had asked me. He should have told me that I should get the straight barbell for my new piercing. I went...
(SOURCE) SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: His friend of a friend did it. WHAT’S AWFUL: the shading is horrible, uneven lines. all in all looks like a mess.
hananathebanana33 asked: It angers me when people jump down your throat, just because they've had a "good experience" with being pierced with a gun. I got my first and second lobe piercings pierced with a gun. My first holes when I was 11 and my mum didn't know better. My second holes when I was 19 and I didn't know the dangers of piercing guns. Just because I was lucky and didn't have...
azuriiite asked: can you guys please make a tattoo FAQ >,< mainly about how to take care of it when it's healing ect. it would be very much appreciated, thankyou for your time! <3
Source: myself Submitter’s Comment: First of all, sorry if my English isn’t good, I’m not a native speaker. I got my industrial done in October, 2012. I went to a “reputable” piercing studio near my house to get it done. I was told that the barbell was “high quality stainless steel”, the first week was healing normally, like a normal piercing, after...
neptunes-trident asked: In that article you linked us to about the trans-gum piercing by shannon larratt, he said the trans-gum piercing "actually is reckless and a terrible idea." He may be a proponent for misunderstood piercings, but he definitely does not support that type of piercing.
i desperately want to learn how to and start piercing people, although its not suggest i have pierced myself a couple of times and none have rejected nor gotten infected due to careful cleaning and proper “technique” or what little i have. where should i start looking? does one have to be a certain age before being allowed to pierce people? and last of all where could i find synthetic...
I find this a bit ironic (a personal story)
I have several tattoos, a few of them done by a close friend of mine (I know, I know, they were from a few years ago) and surprisingly, they’re pretty good. I like them, at least. This story, oddly enough, isn’t about his work though but a shop in my area that actually has a great reputation. I got my first tattoo there, right when I turned 18. Its a goofy looking skull that looks...
(SOURCE) 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...
(SOURCE) SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This picture was posted by some girl i’m friends with on facebook. She linked me to the artist, and surprisingly..none of his work is this bad. which I find pretty weird. WHAT’S AWFUL: Wonky lines, bad coloring. Just an overall bad tattoo.
45hundredtimes asked: Someone submitted about "My Tattoo Addiction" - One of the things that annoyed me about it was it featured a girl who had set up a professional studio in her home, which makes it look like it's okay to tattoo people at home, or go and get tattoos from someone at home, not warning the veiwers that most of the people who tattoo from home aren't licensed and have NO health and...
