I don’t have a photo to submit and I’m a new follower to your blog as well. I just wanted to share a piercing story of my own.
Last summer I went to a respectable shop in my town to get surface hip piercings. I didn’t do as much research as I should have and I have to say my experience wasn’t a good one. The piercer himself was licensed and understood what he was doing, but he was incredibly rude to me and my friend and it seemed like the whole time he was trying to rush the both of us out the door.
After he pierced me, he didn’t give me any aftercare directions at all or give me the opportunity to ask him because every time I started to say something he would cut me off and talk over me. Once I got home I did a little more research and found that he didn’t even use the proper jewelry on me, using curved barbells instead of the barbells that are kind of shaped like a large staple.
They eventually rejected and now I have scars from them, not to mention they were crooked and completely out of line with each other. I will never be going back to that shop.
