Modified Twelve Year Old
Sorry, I couldn’t post this as a video for some reason. There was no ‘Submit’ button…
Submitter’s Comment: Okay, so I was lurking YouTube with the phrase ‘septum piercing’ since I’m getting one in a few days. During my hunt, I uncovered this… I just… I’m utterly shocked.
What’s Awful: Well, in this video specifically, he shows off some tools he ordered online to pierce his own septum. That should be awful enough, however, MY DEAR SWEET GOD… Check the comments. This kid confirms that he is TWELVE YEARS OLD. And that was ten months ago… So maybe he is thirteen now. Even so, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. Where are this kid’s parents?! He has snakebites and lobes stretched big enough to fit his pinky through. All of his videos seem to be mod based (I didn’t watch them all). I just find this so terrifying. I mean, I really know nothing in regards to body modification laws, and since they vary from place to place, who knows… Even with this kid planning on piercing his own septum, it is possible that all of his current piercings were done by a professional. Still, considering he is TWELVE, I’m doubtful… And even then, I don’t think a twelve year old — at the very least — should be stretching his ears. After a certain size (which I am pretty sure he has exceeded), those won’t shrink back down. A kid his age does not have the mental capacity (and I can back this up with research) to make these sorts of decisions because his ability to think in the long term and foresee consequences will not yet have been developed. This is a psychological fact. The aforementioned self-piercing aside, potentially permanent mods need to be left up to people who are psychologically capable of making these kinds of decisions. I just… Wow.
How It Can Be Fixed: I don’t know… I mean, I can’t see the state of his lobes or piercings. It is possible everything is fine and perfectly healthy. Still, I’d recommend that the kid downsize his lobes until he is old enough to make that kind of decision. Furthermore, he needs to be educated in how dangerous self-piercing is so that he doesn’t try that anymore. Oh, and his parents need to be seriously questioned for their judgement.

- rat-butt said: you shouldn’t make judgments. this kid probably knows more than you do about it. don’t police someone else’s body, even though you may be older than them. that’s just rude. maybe his parents are supportive.

- curryx said: it’s not awful just cause it’s your opinion. yes, self piercing is bad and he’s underage so it’s illegal, but having stretched lobes is nothing of both and only his decision and has nothing to do in a blog like this and your op. doesn’t belong here.
