ssketches asked: Despite having absolutely zero intentions on doing any kind of modification on myself (beyond my basic single lobe piercings), this is an informative and nauseating resource to look at. I must hate myself because I can't stop looking for really bad entries to show other friends. It's beyond me why people continue to perform such unsafe practices just to save a few bucks/other reasons. If...
Source: My phone, facebook This is a girl I used to know. She did a lot of drugs and thought she was so bad ass. her brother stole her a machine. She tatoos herself and others. It’s terrible, lines are wonky, under age, unsanitary. She needs to stop, wait untill she’s of age. Do it right.
Actually it’s pretty common now. Iirc, they’re easier to insert, the ends are easier to change, and they’re less irritating and less easy to rip out of your nose by accident. They’ve pretty much become the standard jewelry for that… Just because it’s called a “labret” stud doesn’t mean that’s its only use. They’re frequently used...
Do not buy body jewelry from Hot Topic!
I just want to second the other post about not buying Hot Topic body jewelry…I bought some “6g” pinchers and couldn’t get them in my ear; they were too big. I’d been stretched to 6g for months, so there shouldn’t have been a problem, unless of course they mislabeled their body jewelry. I tried to return/exchange them and they refused to take them back even...
vixenvi asked: I think it depends where the blue banana is. I didn't know much about modifications, but the place I went to pierced all of my piercings with needles. I also had a second assistant in the room to monitor that the piercing was going correctly, and they both second opinion the positions to make sure they matched up. The only issue I had was that the exit wounds on my nipples were at a slightly...
About the lobe of the APP piercer
So forgive me for not doing this in “ask” form, but I apparently can’t submit a question without first joining tumblr, and I’m not doing that just to ask one question to one blog. Anyway, I’m the one who uploaded the picture of that lobe that I *THINK* belongs to an APP piercer (I am literally not able to confirm whether he is or not, however). Blowouts are bad....

trembleinmywake asked: Is it me, or does everyone who gets a bad tattoo from a scratcher use 'I moved allot' as a excuse for the terrible line work?
sp4cekid asked: It amazes me that people that get pierced unprofessionally still bitch about pain. Well yeah, if someone that doesn't know what they're doing is jamming a frayed germ covered needle that's been 'sterilized' with rubbig alcohol and a lighter, it's going to fucking hurt, significantly more than a professional one.
milkplus-synthemesc asked: You can actually request a needle to be used at blue banana, I had my nose pierced there and it was all very proffessional, pierced with a 1.2mm titanium labret :) not all blue banana's are awful, thought I will say I wouldn't go there for a more complex piercing.
Don't know any context. I can only imagine the...
(SOURCE) SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I found this on facebook today. These two 17, 18 years old I just want to bring this here. It looks like to was done at home and very poorly. Just thought you would enjoy this.
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...
