Friends don’t let friends get pierced with guns!
When I was 7 I really wanted to get my ears pierced. My sister, being 13 at the time, was getting hers done, so my mom decided she might as well bring me. We went to this little place in the middle of the mall. It was pretty much one of those stands in the middle of the mall where they sell you shit, not even Claire’s. If I ever saw it today I’d walk away as fast as possible. Anyways, the lady working there pierced me with a gun. Not only was it incredibly painful, but she didn’t even warn me when she was going to pierce me. On top of that, my ears got infected about 2 or 3 weeks later. They eventually healed, and I still had my earrings in, but once they were COMPLETELY healed and I could take my earrings out to change them, we noticed the holes were crooked.
And that is my terrible modification story~ Not much, but it’s still something.
Every time I meet someone who plans on bringing their kid to get a piercing, or plans on getting a piercing I always tell them about how bad guns are. I’ve had several parents in Claire’s get mad at me for trying to TELL THEM HOW BAD A GUN IS, AND THAT THEY SHOULD ACTUALLY GO TO A WELL TRAINED PROFESSIONAL. Okay, your kid’s ears your ruining, not my problem, I was only trying to help. NBD.
