Not really an awful mod, just an awful end.
I’m new to Awfulmodifications, and alas, I don’t see much information on dimple piercings. This would be me before the ‘incident’ I am about to warn/speak of.
As you can see, I had five piercings on my face alone. (That doesn’t include the other multiple ones I’ve got.) Now, dimple piercings aren’t really troublesome if done PROFESSIONALLY, and if taken care of properly. About a month ago, I had to take my dimple piercings out. I had gotten a severe 3rd degree burn on my face from [sadly] being allergic to sunscreen and being out in the sun for a total of 15 hours in two days. Due to the burn being on my left piercing, when the skin rawed, it became very sensitive to infection. Unaware of this, I continued to only clean it twice a day rather than what I should have due to it being painful to clean because of the burn.
The burn had caused it to become infected easily, and in result, I had to remove my dimple piercings. Many people talk about how it’s troublesome to get them because of:
1) Biting the bars or balls on the inside of the cheek.
2) Them being impossible to deal with while eating before they’ve completely healed the way they should.
3) The balls for the bars are too large.
Etc. Etc. Those are just the top three excuses I’ve heard for people who really want the piercings done, but have these fears. Yes, you do sometimes bite the ball or bar while eating if not careful, BUT, that only happens if you keep the original long bars in that the piercer did the piercing with. Because they use longer bars due to swelling, you need to have regular tongue ring bars at the ready for when they’re good to be changed. As for the concern about the balls being too large, yes, the usual tongue ring balls are too large and gawky.
Solution to this: Use the same gauge balls from another piercing that are smaller. (I used Monroe balls from my lip.) As for eating, you really have no troubles more than the ordinary oral inflammation and slight annoyance with having to chew more slowly. Dimple piercings aren’t as bad as some people make them out to be (mind you a good percent of those people haven’t even had them done.)
This is me currently, and I do indeed plan on getting my dimples redone when I have the funds.
Had my lip rings out due to my sister borrowing them and then losing them. Anyways, as you can see, they left no problem. I didn’t even have dimples before I got them, and they’ve been out for a month [Or more] and I still have little dimples. That’s the cute thing about these piercings. People say that they’re impossible to get rid of if you want to take them out, that’s not true. It takes a while, yes, but it depends more so on how long you had them in. I had mine in for over three months. So of course it’s not going to go away instantly, your body molds to such things. So if you plan on getting dimple piercings, remember to get them done at a professional place by someone who knows what they’re doing. Not some chop shop with half baked equipment. Remember to take care of your skin around your piercings and such because it does effect the piercing it’s self. Always keep it clean and dandy and you’ll be happy with what you have.

- pachoulifish said: 3rd degree burn from being out in the sun? Sure it wasn’t a really nasty 1st degree or 2nd degree? 3rd degree burns destroy the top layers of skin, leaving charred skin surrounded by 2nd degree burns at the edges. Typo maybe?
