Goffik tumblr queen Felice Fawn has truly outdone herself this time, openly admitting to piercing her own nipples, when she has no formal training in the slightest. Also, using 1.2mm does not hurt any less than 1.6mm needles and jewellery. 14g/1.6mm is generally considered to be the minimum safe gauge for nipple piercings to prevent migration and the cheese wire effect.
What’s more awful is that she’s telling her thousands of impressionable followers that it’s okay to pierce your own nipples. Which clearly, it’s not.
Not a very sterile area for tattoos
There is so, so much wrong here. Tattoo machine lying on a piece of kitchen roll, next to what appears to be a computer. And a great big bottle of vodka next to it.
A professional tattoo artist would not tattoo out of such squalor. Here there’s a huge risk for cross contamination, not to mention the fact that it’s totally unsanitary.
TL;DR, no matter how vehemently someones claims to be a professional, no matter how good their work is, they are a kitchen jockey scratcher if they think its okay to work in an environment like this.
Can someone please take my screencap of Felice’s mutilated finger, write a post with it and submit to awfulmods?
Q:I'm pretty sure felice fawn has said before she was a tattoo artist at 18 or so, & when she was piercing her own nipples i sent her to this blog but she also told me she worked in a parlor so she knew what she was doing. so that submit was wrong, xx
Felice *wanted* to be a tattoo artist, and she never became one, ever. She *never* worked in a piercing shop, either.
She tattooed herself at home in an unsafe and non sanitary manner. That’s awful enough.
