SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This girl is on my Facebook friends list. She is only 14 years old. She just posted a status and these pictures. Some other girl commented saying that it was stupid, and it will get infected. She replied that she knows, but she doesn’t care.
She used the exact technique that you have on blast on your blog right now. She actually posted a picture of a pencil with needle stuck in the eraser. She didn’t even bother cleaning the needle before taking the picture. It’s all crusty and gross.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Um, everything. First of all, she’s 14. Second, she did it herself using a pencil and a pin/sewing needle. Third, it looks like she did it in her bathroom. Fourth, it’s just terrible looking.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: She’s going to have to wait. She can’t get it professionally fixed because she is underage. I’d say she should see a doctor because it will probably be infected by morning, if it isn’t already.
