Epic Fail!

(SOURCE)- Facebook’s ‘Zjebany’ page

Submitter’s Comments: Was trolling around Zjebany page again, looking for fails.

What’s Awful?: Doz meat legz! And then be proceeded to stretch the meat legs? WTF O_O! I’m not sure what’s on his face… it looks like an extremely poorly placed cheek piercing that’s been stretched? His whole ear just looks like it hates being attached to him.

How Can This Be Fixed?: Take all those tunnels out, get reconstructive surgery. Take that thing out of your cheek asap! Or at least clean all the funk and crust off… at least!

—————————————————————-

mod comment:

The thing on his face is a sort of new surface anchor/implant type thing "skin tunnel". I wish i knew where to find the diagrams explaining how it works or even how to look for where they might be, but i forget what the guy who came up w/ it is calling them. In any case, it doesn’t look happy either.

Was looking for ‘Vampire Bite’ microdermals on Google images when I saw the first picture.  I clicked on it, knowing that it was improper jewelry and was directed to this website .  It’s full of pretty bad piercings.  I tried to reverse image search these two and nothing came up for an original source. 
What’s awful: The first one is using incorrect jewelry.  They should be using a 90* surface bar, not a clear plastic barbell.  The second one looks like a barbell as well (hard to tell) and it seems like it will catch from the jewelry being too long.
How to fix it: Take it out, let the piercings heal.  Then, go to a reputable piercer and get either microdermals or a 90* surface bar.

Gun piercing horror story

When I was about 5 years old my Mom took me to the hair salon to get my ears pierced. They used a gun and didn’t wear gloves. The piercing gun was so awful that it jammed and pulled out the jewelry. So I had to get my left ear done twice.

and this was their golden aftercare advice:

Not only that, I also was allergic to the shitty jewelry they pierced my ear with so my ears were so irritated that it took four years for them to settle down - four years. I was just a kid and I thought it was my fault so I hid it from my parents.

The only reason my ears settled down was because I realized my skin grew to the back of my studs for the third time so I ripped them out. There was so much scar tissue from constantly getting infections that my holes stayed open and the next jewelry I put in just happened to be stainless steel, which finally closed the book on the problems.

I’ve since educated myself and now have 30+ piercings and only get pierced by professionals with needles - and I’ve never had a piercing issue since.


I was going through a facebook group when I saw this he pierced his ear himself and already plans on stretching to a 14g later tonight.  Then, somebody comments that he pierced his lip with a fork.

What’s awful:  He’s sizing up the day he pierces his own ear with a sewing needle and the other guy PEIRCE HIS LIP WITH A FORK

How to fix it: TAKE THEM OUT! Get them done by a professional!  DON’T USE EATING UTENSILS TO PEIRCE YOURSELF

[Don’t have a Tumblr and I tried my best to do everything right but not sure if my computer was cooperating/I was mildly confused]

Taken off facebook from Kyle, this is an acrylic taper that has started to break down due to body heat from being worn. Just say no to acrylic jewelry and tapers.

Anyone else want to throw out their acrylic?

SUBMITTER COMMENT: This girl went from a 20g mall piercing to a 2g in 6 weeks. Her instagram documents it, along with this complete idiot giving her equally as awful advice on every other photo. 

HOW TO FIX IT: STOP PUTTING STUFF IN YOUR EARS. Jesus Christ, when did it become a race? I don’t think much can be done at this point beyond taking them out and waiting like any sane person would do.

SOURCE1 SOURCE2 FULL-SIZE IMAGESUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This girl is on my Facebook friends list. She is only 14 years old. She just posted a status and these pictures. Some other girl commented saying that it was stupid, and it will get infected. She replied that she knows, but she doesn’t care.She used the exact technique that you have on blast on your blog right now. She actually posted a picture of a pencil with needle stuck in the eraser. She didn’t even bother cleaning the needle before taking the picture. It’s all crusty and gross.WHAT’S AWFUL: Um, everything. First of all, she’s 14. Second, she did it herself using a pencil and a pin/sewing needle. Third, it looks like she did it in her bathroom. Fourth, it’s just terrible looking.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: She’s going to have to wait. She can’t get it professionally fixed because she is underage. I’d say she should see a doctor because it will probably be infected by morning, if it isn’t already.

The truth about ear studs

pinkykarla:

Let’s talk for a minute about the vast majority of commercially available jewelry marketed for pierced ears.
Below you will see a picture of 14K gold jewelry that supposedly is safe and comfortable.

1. The edges of the jewelry appear sharp and the finish is less than mirror finish. Open grooves in the backing and the rough, sharp edges can damage piercings and harbor bacteria and debris.

2. The wonderful 14K gold stamping. The stamping is on the post of the earring, and the crevices and edges are a perfect breeding ground for nasty pathogens.

3. Super sharp threading on the post. I have seen this sort of threading go as far up as 3/4 of the way up the post, essentially causing the piercing to constantly be irritated and damaged. Rubbing this threading even against normal skin can cut into the surface… OUCH!

4. The 14K gold means quality, right? WRONG! The karat only tells you of the percentage of gold in the jewelry in GENERAL. It does not specify if the post, backing, front design or any other part of the jewelry is gold, or even if it is plated! Plated gold can flake off and cause rough edges and expose the wearer to the metals under the plating, which can contain lead (toxic), nickel (a common metal causing reactions), copper and other “stuff” to make the jewelry harder, brighter and more “gold looking”.

Long story short, the jewelry going through your body should ALWAYS be implant grade, with a mirror finish and no rough edges, and not have imprints or other marks where bacteria can colonize. We love using neometal threadless titanium labrets, which come in many different lengths (for chubby or thin lobes) and tons of threadless top choices! Stop by today and pick up some truly safe, implant grade quality jewelry and see what a wonderful difference it makes!
