Submitter Comment: Found the first beauty January 1st. This kid is down the drain a little (if you get what I mean) and is 16 years old. He attends an academic selective school. Now I may not be a pro with body modifications, but from reading this blog I know this isn’t right. He has multiple other piercings, including snake bites, tongue bar and a septum piercing - none done professionally.
What’s Awful: He got his ears pierced. Three days later, he stretched to a 2 mil. 2 weeks later, he’s at an 8 mil.
He has what seems like a plastic or acrylic taper in his ear.
And in the left photo, he is asking his unlicensed, unprofessional friend to tattoo a minor without parental permission (which is illegal here (in Australia) and can result in gaol time) in most likely an unsanitary, dirty environment, stick and poke style.
How it can be fixed: Well, honestly, get your head out of the gutter for starters and get educated.
Take out the taper and let your ears heal before you do some permanent damage!
Never go to an unlicensed tattooist, even if they are your “friend”. Save your money, go to someone who knows what they are doing and wait until you’re 18 or get parental permission.
And never do your own piercings or get an unprofessional, unlicensed person to do them either!
