Submitter Comment: Believe it or not, this tattoo is actually a cover-up (I’d hate to see what it originally looked like in that case). This boy just turned 16 and despite my best efforts to get him to .modify safely (he asked me if I could pierce his lip and give him snakebites, at which I told him to get it done by a qualified piercer) he ignores my advice and this monstrosity pops up on my facebook feed. It was home done, and despite there being a ton of comments telling him that it looks awful and he needs to get it fixed up by a professional, he still refuses to acknowledge that it’s a horrible tattoo! The worst thing is his parents won’t give permission for him to go to an actual shop, so he’ll have to walk around with this monstrosity for two more years
What’s awful: Home tattoo job in an unsanitary environment on a 16 year old, the lines look wonky, the shading is terrible, the lines behind it are supposed to be dust clouds but really don’t look anything like it
How it can be fixed: Go to an actual shop and have someone qualified cover it up!
I got my tongue pierced a fortnight ago. I had my bar changed down now. Im just wondering when ill be able to give oral sex and kiss with tongues again?
Good morrow! If it’s been a fortnight (2 weeks for people with bad vocabularies) and the piercing feels fine you should be ok for some light kissing. As for the oral sex you might want to wait closer to the one month point.

Oh my god I need that printed and framed in my station
When I was 12 or so, I got my ears pierced for the first time by my aunt, with a gun, in my home. I didn’t actually know what the studs were before my ears were pierced, my aunt eyeballed where they were to be pierced (They look pretty good nonetheless) and the studs were a questionable metal. I was really scared, and so none of this really registered. They seemed to be gold but were became corroded very quickly, and turned green where my ears touched them almost constantly. Despite this, i used them for three years, cleaning them and my ears regularly, and never really got infected, though my ears leaked a clear liquid occasionally, but I never did anything about it. Since then I’ve thrown away the earrings, bought some decent ones that i knew were real silver, and my ears are much healthier!
What’s awful: Questionable metal, unsanitary environment, done by a non-professional.
For the record, “real silver” isn’t exactly great for long-term wear either as it can still contain nickel (which lots of people are allergic to) and tarnishes over time (in your body).
I’d highly recommend looking for some implant grade steel or titanium from brands like Industrial Strength, Anatometal, and Neometal.
In order mentioned:
(Anatometal also makes “normal” earrings, pictured on the left)
(Note, those are ONLY THE ENDS of Neometal labret studs)

Submitters comments: These were done in a 15 year old girls bedroom by a scratcher that you can see clearly didn’t bother even at least trying to clean up.
What’s awful: Tattooing underage girls in their bedroom, for one. On top of that, the wonky line work in both tattoos and the cross contamination from that filthy bedroom.
Submitters comment: Uhh.. hmm. Saw this posted on a community FaceBook Page and everyone was saying it was cute. Just thought I’d post, don’t think I’ve seen it before! Sorry if I’m submitting on the wrong blog. Just thought it should be somewhere.
What’s Awful: shoving little animals through your lobes? Unsanitary.
How to fix: a little brainpower.
“Bought a Dremel a few months back, now that the weathers warm I have actually been using it!
The first thing I made were taper ear spacers! They turned out alright, I know I need to practice using a Dremel though!
Right now I did a base coat of white on all 8 spacers, and will be decorating and sealing them. I will post photos when I’m done!
Currently making a beginner taper spacer for myself. Going to sand it down more, soak it in extra virgin olive oil and put it in tonight. I’ll update with photos later.”

Submitter Comment: I’m just flabbergasted. Obviously she has done no research on ear stretching whatsoever. She has normal pierced ears, not stretched ones.
Why It’s Awful: Where to begin? Her terminology is off - they are called tapers, not ‘beginner taper ear spacers’. Wood should never be used to stretch with, especially not wooden tapers. Tapers are bad enough as it is. Who knows what kind of wood these are made out of, they could be toxic. Look how wonky they are! They are uneven, a huge size jump, and badly sanded. Plus she coated them in paint, and then a sealant, neither of which are healthy for your ears. And then she shoved them through with olive oil..
How It Can Be Fixed: Throw these things in the trash and do some actual research. Buy proper stretching materials and for the love of all things modified, put the dremel down!

Submitters comment: The girl who got this tattooed is 15. She also got her chest tattoo from the same girl who did her neck.
What’s Awful: Neck and chest tattoos on a 15 year old girl (She also recently got her knuckles done by the same tattooist.) The spiderwebs look like they are open wounds. The placement is funky. The leaves look awful and aren’t in the right place. I could just go on and on.
