SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I’m not really very educated on alot of piercing things, but i’ve recently found this blog, and i’m trying to educate myself before I get ANY piercings or tattoo pieces done. Anyway, My friend knows this 16 yo girl that thinks she’s a professional at all body modifications, and she pierces people under the pretense that she worked as a piercer for 2 years when she actually did not. She pierced my friends septum after saying that she’s done it a million times (Yes my friend knows it was still stupid to let her do this, and highly regrets it), but after it was done the girl said she had actually never done it before. Luckily everything turned out alright. Anyway, this picture is of someone’s navel she pierced, and said person is also 16.
WHAT’S AWFUL: The blood, the area is obviously not sterile, it was obviously done at home with no care what so ever, and the jewelry is totally not the type to use on a fresh piercing.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: She can wait until she’s of age to do anything related to this, gain an apprenticeship at a shop, and she can certainly stop lying to people about previous experience, especially people who’re also underaged.

- rokkenbosche said: Piercing at home is bad an all, but since piercing is, you know, shoving a needle into your body, thereby piercing the skin, you might bleed. My helix bled when it was pierced and it’s a much less fleshy part of the body. But dont pierce at home (duh
