Disgrace to Professionals Everywhere
Submitter’s Comments: Was reading Shannon Larratt’s ModBlog, and came across THIS article (click the source for the actual article). I quote: “Tattoo artist, Ryan L. Fitzjerald was hit with a $100,000 lawsuit last week by his ex-girlfriend Rossie Brovent. She claims that her boyfriend was supposed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back but instead tattooed an image of a pile of excrement with flies buzzing around it.”
Why It’s Awful: He got her drunk before signing a consent form, apparently stating that the tattoo design was ‘at the artist’s discretion.’ She’s scarred for life and can’t do much about it because the idiot got her to sign something beforehand. She states that she was passed out for most of the tattoo. Any professional wouldn’t have tattooed an intoxicated person. Any professional wouldn’t do this to someone.
How It Can Be Fixed:
Don’t let your partner tattoo you after you’ve slept with his best friend behind his back. Lots of laser surgery, or a good coverup. Take the bastard to court for all he’s got!
Lesson here is not really what is crossed out, but more to not go to a non-professional who will tattoo you while you’re wasted.
Submitter’s Comment: These are on my cousin and his attachment. They’ve been together for one year, decided this was what they wanted to do for their anniversary. Cute idea. Badly executed.
What’s Awful: Got it done by a friend in a basement. No professional anything. Lines are shaky, etc.
Q:Do Dahlia piercings leave scars?
Yes. Literally all piercings will leave a scar in one form or another. If you create a wound in your body, you will get a scar as a result.
Not a personal attack on you, blue-morning, but please, everyone, stop asking us if [x] piercing will leave a scar. It will. Even if you do it 100% right. Some scars are more visible than others. Some scars fade faster over time. Some scars won’t really be visible in a couple months or a year or 5 years, but they will ALL leave a scar on your body for some amount of time.
This is a Polish page, “Zjebany” means “shitty”. So this isn’t the actual source, but where I found it. The page has lots of awful stuff on it.
Submitter Comment: I know, I couldn’t believe it either…
What’s Awful: It appears this person has been wearing that bolt & nut in their stretched lobe. Inappropriate material for wearing in a stretched lobe, the weight would’ve also been ridiculously too much for the lobe to handle, and it’s obviously caused a lot of damage.
How Can It Be Fixed: Seek medical help immediately. And get an earlobe reconstruction.
WEAR YOUR EARMUFFS! (Stretched Lobes and Frostbite)

Submitter’s Comments: Was reading ModBlog again, came across this cautionary tale of keeping your lobes nice and warm during these winter months! This man went out snowboarding and his lobes became frostbitten.
What’s Awful?: He didn’t take proper precaution against the winter weather, so his poor lobes almost fell off.
How to Fix?: Wear earmuffs when you go out in the snow! Or switch your titanium/steel eyelets for something that’s less likely to freezeeeee fast!
Happy Winter, ya’ll!
I know I posted this story as an answer to someone’s question earlier in the season, but i’ll post this just as a reminder to keep those lobes warm. :)
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
What’s wrong: A horrific infection either caused by un-sterile equipment/environment, or someone not cleaning their new ink properly, if at all.
How to fix it: Take care of yourself. Clean your tattoo as instructed for the provided time period, and make sure you go to a clean and qualified shop that uses sterile equipment.
Just a TAD unsanitary…
(SOURCE)- Tumblr’s ‘Fuck Yeah, Stick n’ Poke!’
Submitter’s Comments: Was lurking through the SNP blog, and came across this. As stated, it’s someone sitting on a toilet, at school, getting a stick n poke tattoo.
What’s Awful?: No gloves, done in the most unsanitary spot in the entire universe, besides a dumpster. They may be underage if it’s being done in ‘school,’ so they very likely may regret it in the future. Do you know how many fecal particles are flying around there right now?! Ugh!
How Can it Be Fixed?: Stop. Doing. Things. That. Licensed. Professionals. Are. Trained. To. Do… :|! Only use the bathroom to relieve yourself, not give yourself a new ‘body mod.’
I don’t think it’s the original source, but that’s where I found it.
Submitter comment: All I have to say about this is “what the actual fuck”
What’s awful: Huge blowout, plenty of tearing, also looks like it could have some kind of infection in the mix. This is basically a shit sandwich. Obviously this person has tried to stretch way too quickly, irresponsibly, probably used imporper tools and methods and not taken ANY care of their ear. Something this bad doesn’t happen over night!
How it can be fixed: Stop stretching immediately. Do not put any jewellery in there, don’t even downsize! Just care for it like a wound. Do some saline soaks, maybe a bit of massage. Let that fucking abomination completely heal up and shrink down. Then have either the blowout removed or the lobe reconstructed by a mod artist/plastic surgeon. And only then, when it’s fully healed up, seek out some good stretching advice and begin again but properly this time!
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Came across this beauty on good ol’ Facebook. You can clearly see how it does not look like Jack and Sally. This Sally is certainly a lot more scary than she’s supposed to be.
WHAT’S AWFUL: The frame piece isn’t that bad, but the actual characters are just almost unrecognizable. One of the sad parts is the drawing done before hand is a lot better and more detailed in the characters, but still just bleck.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Maybe with some serious detailing to fix it up, or just a REALLY big cover up. Or just always where pants.
