SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This was done by a guy on my facebook, he’s tattooing from home and won’t listen when I tell him that he won’t be taken seriously by a studio. He’s constantly got people coming to him asking for tattoos and he thinks it’s acceptable to tattoo people when he doesn’t know what he’s doing, because they’re asking for them and he isn’t charging.. This is just one of many disastrous pieces he’s done. The awful part is that the comments on facebook are people complimenting him on it when it’s clearly awful.
WHAT’S AWFUL: the lines are shaky as hell! I can’t believe that someone would be happy having this on their body permanently
Submitter Comment: I have no idea who this guy is but he added me on facebook and he’s apparently a ‘tattooist’ (i use that term lightly). here’s just one of the many gems floating around his page. I keep him on my friend list purely for comedic value and I just had to share this one.
What’s awful: Everything about it is terrible. The line work is shaky, absolutely feeble attempt at shading.. And aside from the appalling artwork, my god its so freaking red! Did he scrub it with a scouring pad after he’d finished??? I don’t believe this guy’s had any sort of mentoring and I am 99% sure he tattoos from his kitchen. Nice
(SOURCE) - Instagram, he since deleted his account
Submitter’s Comments: Found this on Instagram while searching “bodymod.” I’m pretty sure he deleted his account after I told him about himself lol.
What’s Awful?: You mean, besides the fact that he just “found” this? DON”T YOU CLEAN YOUR EARS REGULARLY??!!! Obviously not. Otherwise you would have “found” the problem before it started.
How Can This Be Fixed?: EAR CONSTRUCTION!!! Asap!

Submitter Comment: This was a surface piercing done at a popular, yet highly unprofessional piercing shop in the town next to mine. This shop does piercings, but they are also a bakery and provide services such as tanning. I have never been there, but seeing piercings they have done on people I go to school with and pictures on their website is extremely frustrating. Apparently they have over 11 years experience with piercing, and they also pierce for ridiculously cheap prices. This is just one of the many pictures of the awful piercings they do on their website.
What’s Awful: Wrong jewelry!! This is a surface piercing which has been done with a curved barbell and low quality jewelry and it is unnaturally red and inflamed.
How It Can Be Fixed: Take out the piercing to heal, go to a professional, reputable shop and wear proper jewelry!
We got an ask in the form of fanmail (which is not where questions go) saying the following:
idiotasiwillkillyou asked: I want to get my nipples pierced for personal reasons but I'm painfully shy about my body. I'm definitely not comfortable with stripping down for a stranger, even for clinical reasons. How can I get my nipples pierced and preserve my modesty?
I really have no idea how to answer this. You might be able to figure out how to just expose you nipple without taking your entire shirt off? The only thing i can think of is wear an undershirt or something with appropriately placed holes in it? (sorry if that sounds weird and creepy) You could ask your piercer for suggestions too.
Other than that, your piercer is much like a doctor and sees whatever body parts you want pierced on a daily basis. There is a difference between “stripping down” and taking off clothes for a piercing/medical procedure. To be completely honest, if you aren’t comfortable with taking off your shirt for the piercing, then maybe it isn’t the piercing for you.

Submitter Comment: Was reading this issue of Inked Aus/NZ and came across the big model spread, thought this woman was gorgeous and really loved her lobes. Then I looked a little closer and staring me right in the face were 2 ugly, blown-out lobes. Yuck! Not so attractive anymore…
What’s Awful: The fact that she has yucky blow outs, from improper stretching, and is a published modified model, especially in Inked mag.
How Can It Be Fixed: Take the jewellery out, soak & massage & shrink the lobes, then stretch back up, that can fix or at least minimise the look of a blowout.
skaisnotdead asked: Do you know what someone has to go through to become a scarification professional? Someone tried to tell me that they don't need to be trained, but I know they're stupid. I know there's obviously training I just can't find any info to back it up. Do they need a licence?
I’m not sure on if they need a license or not, but I’d say you definitely need to be trained by someone who knows what they’re doing (aka a real professional) before/while going into it. I mean…I wouldn’t just let an untrained person cut into, remove, or burn my flesh… O_O
Anybody else have more info (preferably those in the body modification field)? Send it here (not in our ask box).
Submitter Comment: Browsing around Tumblr, had a bit of a LOL at this one. Hilariously awful
What’s Awful: 1. Tattooing a pregnant woman. No person with half a brain would ever do that. BIG risk of harming the baby! If that gets infected or anything, you can bet your bottom dollar the baby is going to be harmed by it 2. It looks like it’s done in someone’s kitchen, sooo unsanitary! and 3. I don’t usually hate on people for their choice of tattoo, but that baby isn’t going to be on board forever…
How can it be fixed: Pray to Jesus that the baby is not harmed. It would’ve been better to just go with a temporary tattoo, those ones you get at the $2 store and use a wet wash cloth to transfer them to your skin…
