AWFUL MODS

Jan 12

SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Was on my news feed and saw this post from some high school kids I know..
WHAT’S AWFUL: First off, a 16 year old with his own tattoo gun offering tattoos.  And second, the kid tattooing himself WHILE on the computer.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED:  DON’T TATTOO YOURSELF. It’s unsanitary and just plain awful looking. Wait and go to a professional and get it done right.

So this is my forward helix, the back of it hasn’t changed since it was first pierced, it was only surfacing from the front side of it. :) I went back to the piercer, the guy out the front was in shock that these could surface and my piercer agreed it should be taken out,
do forward helix piercings surface? 
—————————————————————————
1. This jewelry is incorrect. These should be done with a straight barbell/labret stud.
2. The placement is not even close to right.
3. is that high quality jewelry? It looks like PVD coated something or other to me and that curve doesn’t look like it’s a good angle at all.
I really suggest you find a new piercer.

Noticed a huge lump of scar tissue under an old gun punched piercing I haven’t worn jewelry in in years. 
What’s awful: It takes a considerable amount of trauma to make scar tissue that thick from such a small hole, which is why you should never have even your lobes pierced with a gun

A random girl added me on facebook a while back and i came across her ‘art’ folder one day and found some horrific copies of very well known tattooists work and some other little things that i typed into google images and immediately an original of what shes posted as her ‘own’ shows up.  I confronted her and apparently i was ‘attacking’ her and then continued to make status’ about me as she couldn’t handle that she’d been found out, but then deleted all the photos i’d commented on. She has a tattoo machine at home, which she ordered off the internet, she openly offers cheap tattoos on her facebook. I don’t think there are words for these tattoos. I can’t really point out what is wrong, as the whole thing is wrong. 
how can it be fixed?
She needs to put the tattoo machine down, pick up a pencil, learn to draw original designs and not tattoo from home. For the tattooed people, they need a cover up ASAP. 
shocking.

SUBMITTER’S COMMENT:  I found this shop through Groupon. They’re offering $50 for $100 worth of tattooing, $350 for six hours of tattooing in one sitting, and(according to their facebook) they offer ridiculous piercing specials regularly. They had some really nice tattoos mixed in with their awful ones which made me curious, so I image searched the good ones. Probably half of the tattoos in their shop portfolio are stolen from different artists(most from Scott Campbell of Saved Tattoo in NY). So not only are they bad at what they do, they are liars and thieves. 

I would link photos of the piercings, but they are only on their website which I can’t link from.

WHAT’S AWFUL: Shaky lines, bad shading, STOLEN pictures, awful everything. Surface piercings have wrong jewelry in as well.

HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Just don’t go to SDInk.

what’s awful? Not sterile. Not done by a professional.  Horrible line work. High possibility for infection.

SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Uhm… he has what i believe to be firecrackers in his stretched nipple
WHAT’S AWFUL:  Putting random stuff in stretched piercings. Especially firecrackers. Those bad boys could have all sorts of chemicals on them/in them. You don’t know where they’ve been. 
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Don’t put random stuff in stretched piercings, period!

Submitters Comment: Saw this on facebook, apparently she’s using bottle caps to stretch to a bigger size. Even after admitting her ears felt hot and were red, she didn’t take them out, and plans to continue the use with them
Whats Awful: Her ears are red and irritated, she admitted they were hot and refused to take them out, not to mention she’s stretching them with a SIDEWAYS bottle cap! Way to much pressure on her poor lobes. 
How it can be fixed: Take them out, immediately. Go back to using plugs, not bacteria infested things you find around your house. .

The page has lots of awful stuff on it.What’s Awful: Ugh, those safety pins! This is horribly unsafe and unsanitary. Inappropriate piercing instrument, inappropriate jewellery. The angle and layout aren’t actually that horrible, but not good either! I hope this person did not try and heal it like this…How Can It Be Fixed: Take those out and go get a tetanus shot.

This makes me sad because that string pattern is so pretty, but those safety pins are so awful. I really hope this person didn’t try to heal those w/ safety pins for permanent wear. O_O
