Alright, so I used to know this guy a few years back. He used to pierce out of his house. The piercings were either done in the bedroom (over carpet, not to mention the cat box was in the room) or on the kitchen table. The table was always littered with dirty dishes. He kept all of his jewelry in a glass bowl, which he would let his clients fish around in to find jewelry they like. He went around saying that he was a ‘Certified Piercer’. And by that he means he ordered a few DVDs online that teach you how to pierce and it comes with a certificate that you can hang on the wall. FYI: There’s no such thing as a CERTIFIED or LICENSED piercer or tattoo artist in Canada. The guy actually works in a shop now, and has started tattooing, and his tattoo work is possibly worse than his piercings.
I think the tattoo and the 32000x navel piercings speak for themselves in the fact that they just look awful and dumb. The navel/stomach piercings make my gut wrench for a few reasons, so I’ll list the two most important. ONE, he’s pierced her with curved barbells. Surface piercings already have a low success rate, especially in that area, even when they are done with the correct jewelry. TWO, surface piercings, navels, and eyebrows all have to be done against the ‘grain’ of your skin. Look at all the weird angles a few of those are pierced at. The grain of skin, and the depth of a piercing, are the elements that keep jewelry in your body. If these stomach piercings even healed correctly to begin with, I assume they rejected at a rapid pace.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED:
Assuming someone was wanting to get that atrocious wheel of steel sharks teeth around their navel, there really would be no ‘good’ way to do it. With the stomach being such a high motion area, it’s not going to like having foreign objects moving around all the time. But I suppose the best way to do it would be with microdermals.
