Good and bad news (Warning - kinda gross in bad news)
Good news, I have a new piercing in my left ear :3
Bad news, my right gauge got super infected and I had to take it out. It is now a gross mess of nastiness. WARNING: GOREY lol
I’ll just leave this here.
My face when
“gauges” under “things I like”
yeah I think speedometers are sexy too
i make custom plugs out of stone cabochons, wood, and polymer clay
take a look, i would be more than happy to make a set for you :)
What on earth is this and why does it exist and why is this person selling them to go in ears. Why. Why on earth.
Polymer clay is the devil.
Blown Glass: Mint Grapefruit tapers
Why this is awful: The gradient on that taper is absolutely mental. You’d rip your ear to absolute shreds using that. Not to mention, given the design, one would assume the makers intend it for long term wear, once again, no bueno. That, and that imagine how heavy that would be? You’d be torn and blown out in no time at all.
This shop also proclaims it’s fine to wear polymer clay jewellery for incredibly extended periods. That’s never, ever okay either. Unless you’re into huge amounts of sebum and bacteria, and then probably bacterial infection from ruining your ears with this thing.
Their catalog of failures can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/FreeFlowJewelry as well as on their tumblr. Feel like telling them that they’re wrong in virtually every way, be my guest.
