Body Art Forms - body jewelry -
I normally don’t fucking scream at people about websites they don’t care about. But this site right here, this site is the shit. It’s fairly cheap (Anatometal is actually somewhat affordable), very good quality, big selection, fantastically fast shipping.
Also it has an autoclave service for $5. You can have you shiny sterile jewelry all shiny and sterile.
I got some fantastic eyelets, new nipple rings, tongue web rings, helix ring, regular lobe rings over the course of a few months, all superb.
Buy from here instead of that shitty stand at the mall that only sells acrylic and lets you touch everything~
Holy cow! Thank you! Our hearts feel all warm inside.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SHOP NEAR YOU THAT SELLS QUALITY JEWELRY or just doesn’t have a large selection and you’re looking for fancy shit, THIS IS YOUR ANSWER.
We constantly get asks about where to buy quality jewelry and THIS IS YOUR ANSWER. Even if you live in Canada or the UK or Australia or Europe - they ship to basically everywhere. If your location isn’t listed on their site, send an e-mail to customer service - they’re AMAZING.
Where you should get quality body jewelry from:
1. Your local studio that sells quality jewelry.
2. Body Art Forms.
PROTIP: Make an account and over time they’ll track the money spent and you’ll earn yourself a forever 10% off. They also allow you to submit reviews and product photos for store credit.
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: It was captioned as follows: “Lmao. -insert test subject’s name here- got tatted today. ;) and I have the skillz to say i did it. First tat Ive ever attempted and its fire. ;D”
…are you fucking serious
WHAT’S AWFUL: The fact that the person who did it thinks this is actually good, the fact that someone let another person do this to their arm, plus, I don’t know jack about physically tattooing someone, but it looks like a full on bruise rather than a bit of redness. It could be their skin color, too, but my point is that it looks excessively painful. :/ I’d imagine that it feels like the day after getting a tetanus shot times three.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Let it heal/fade, get a reputable artist to cover it up, and last but not least, don’t freakin’ do stuff like this in the first place. Get it done professionally! It’ll be so much more worth it! In my area, the cheapest tattoo you can get is $50, if the person pictured wanted this so badly, save a bit of money, or idk, get a job. It’ll probably take less than half of a regular paycheck to get this done professionally.
No this is what happens when you stretch with unsafe materials and don’t take your time
lil jojoba… thatll buff right out.
I don’t feel bad for these people at all. If you never ask a professional the right way to do it then you deserve the consequences.
God fucking damnit!!! Stop, just stop! I can’t handle crap like this anymore. Patience and high quality jewelry does one really good. FUCK!!!
I think i might actually puke. oh god.
I’m not sure how many of you have seen this already, but it keeps showing up on my dash.
This is why you stretch slowly. This is why you stretch slowly. This is why you stretch slowly. This is why you stretch slowly.
Got it? Good.
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This girl I know has been stretching her lobes with a wonkily placed hole.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Improperly placed piercing, her other piercings don’t look very happy either.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Let that guy close up, let the area heal get it re-pierced properly placed.

SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This is a local “professional” artist, tattooing in somebody’s house. This images are proudly put up on her facebook and regularly updates with tattoos she has done and ones she has “fixed.” She also makes excuses for why her lines are shaky quite often. She has been tattooing for about one year, and became a professional without an apprenticeship, weird how that magic happens when your dad is also a “professional”
WHAT’S AWFUL: Tattooing in an non-sterile environment.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Don’t tattoo in a non sterile environment! Also be sure to check your local artists and make sure they don’t follow practices such as this!

Submitter comment: These are some “set up” shots of an at home subdermal implant procedure. There wasn’t much text with the photos, but she did state that the procedure was done on the bed (second photo). She did post some pictures )not included here) showing the implants before they were inserted. From this I can say that there was nothing obviously wrong with the jewelry, only the procedure. There is no indication given of how the contaminated tools and materials were disposed of - I can only hope they didn’t put anyone else at risk.
What’s Awful: Performing a body modification in an unclean environment. I don’t know who did this, but if they were a professional then they are the sort of professional who is willing to work in someone’s bedroom.
How it can be fixed: Go to a reputable professional who works out of a clean studio. Also, do your research. Implants have many potential risks and complications, so it’s worth your time and money to go to someone who understands the risks and can give your implant the best chance of success.
Today is a sad day for the body modification community, we have lost a great man.

Unfortunately I’m unable to log in to my tumblr so I have to ask this in a submission, hopefully you guys will answer. I have recently acquired some tattoo flash art sheets and I wanted to know how I would go about selling these since I have no use for them. Do you think that a local tattoo shop would buy them?
People come by our shop all the time trying to sell flash. It doesn’t hurt to try.
So I was just going through facebook and I stumble across this… I don’t know what exactly it is but it’s weird… and it looks nasty.
1. i totally thought that was a penis.
2. that is someone trying very hard to keep an obviously irritated finger surface piercing in place.
3. what’s wrong: wrong jewelry, clearly annoyed piercing, low quality jewelry
4. how to fix it: seriously just take that out.
