AWFUL MODS

Jan 29

Submitter’s comment: This is my friend of about 4 years now and her boyfriend. The girl’s step dad tattoos out of their home, where they smoke and eat. Tattoos people of age only but does very sloppy work. She says he’s been tattooing for 30 something years now. She has mentioned to me before she would like to go to another tattoo artist because he’s sloppy but doesn’t want to hurt his feelings and she doesnt have to money. She’s also pierced herself at school.

What’s awful: Wonky lines, Very unsanitary, sloppy sloppy work.

P.s. Love this blog. lots and lots. it’s taught me a lot about my own modifications.

Submitter’s Comments: Was cruising on Zjebany Piercing on Facebook and saw this….creation.

Why It’s Awful?: Horrible, incorrect jewelry. Those look like skin divers but I might be wrong, along with bioflex barbells in a ‘surface piercing.’ What’s that black thing lining her neck?! It looks like those plastic things you tie/lock your luggage with when you go on a plane. 

How It Can Be Fixed?: TAKE EVERYTHING OUT!

Anonymous said: Hi! In reference about the question you were asked about one needle used to make four separate holes, why exactly is it that the same needle cant be used in the same sitting on one client? Just super curious. thanks :)

safepiercing:

The cutting portion of the needle will become extremely dull after being used once compared to being unused. A dull needle will cause more unwanted trauma and discomfort for the piercee as opposed to a new unused needle.

Piercing needles are very finely sharpened, they are not designed to be used for more than one puncture. Here are some pictures that illustrate how quickly a beveled needle dulls from use. These are pictures of syringe needles (very similar in design to piercing needles) under magnification after use.

I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but I saw it on a website a while ago. I can’t stop cringing.
——————————————————————————-
usually i don’t bother reformatting posts that aren’t submitted properly but these are just so awful I needed to.
WHAT’S WRONG: well…pretty obvious at least a little bit. The incorrect jewelry is causing severe irritation and also some of the barbells are sinking into the skin and some are not deep enough even if they were proper jewelry. If I had to take a guess at what this was, I’d say it’s someone trying to keep their corset piercing hole open so they can do it again later. This is not the right way to go about this at all. Also it looks like the bottom ones are placed UNDER where pants would go, which will only make things worse. The placement of the piercings isn’t even, one side is lower than the other.
HOW TO FIX IT: take it out. Maybe visit a doctor first to officially make sure no infection has set in, then take them out once anti-biotics have started.

(I realized I hadnt sourced it so I resubmitted it)

I found these while scrolling through my face book sometime in November
Its from a 15 year old girl I used to be close friends with & she has been tattooing herself & friends
She has no licencing or practice yet went straight on to tattooing people
The top two are an example of the larger pieces shes done on herself, where as the others are what she has done on other people

So this is my ear after buying “silicone” tunnels. They were obviously a cheap plastic, as I have had silicone before with no problems and actually love them. They fit perfectly, so they didn’t stretch and my dr did confirm this was an allergic reaction as it spread to my neck and glands. My ears have not been stretched since last spring.  
What’s awful: my ear is swollen, red, itchy, and oozing! And I take great are of my ears. It was so tight, I couldn’t even fit my finger through my 35mm hole. I have a rash on my neck and swollen glands. 
How it can be fixed: I am currently on antihistamines, steroid cream,and an antibiotic cream. So doing my treatments and icing them will keep the swelling down.  Make sure you know where your plugs are coming from and what is inside them. These are obviously not quality jewelry here.

Submitter’s Comment: This was posted on the Facebook page of the local shop near my college. I’m fairly certain that’s blood. I’m also fairly certain that stretching your lobes shouldn’t end with blood. This place does good work, although I will admit that the Industrial I got from them doesn’t seem to be healing right. But I stretch my own ears and I’ve never had them bleed before. it just doesn’t seem right to me. 

What’s Awful: He look’s like he’s bleeding and that lobe doesn’t look happy to me. 

How it can be fixed: Help! Mod’s you guys know a lot more about this than me! 

————————————————-

that placement is also off. way off. if it were my ear i’d take it out and get it redone elsewhere after it’s healed up.

ETA:

Except piercings do not just stretch down, they stretch in all directions (or sometimes the direction of least resistance). This would probably also stretch upwards and be pressing on the anti-tragus, which would likely be uncomfortable.

Everything on this girls blog is either self tattooing or self piercing. 
All of the needle play looks like it’s done on bed sheets, most of the piercings look like they’re in a bathroom. 
What’s awful: Environment doesn’t look sterile, using what looks like a make up wipe to clean it, and the bones don’t line up.
