FAR from ‘safe’…
(SOURCE) - Hubpage’s “Safe Body Piercing Practices”
Submitter’s Comments: This is a screen cap of a site I came across. It was actually found from THIS article, posted on AwfulMods one year ago. If you click on the source, you will find a horrific article on how to ‘safely’ pierce yourself at home.
What’s Awful?: This site is blatantly condoning self piercing. Although it’s possible to find all the info you need online, that doesn’t take away from the fact that most people don’t own autoclaves. What you purchase on the internet will not be sterile (unless it’s a high-quality site that offers such). And even so, it’s just not a good idea. People go through years of apprenticeships to master the art for a reason. They have high prices FOR A REASON.
How To Fix?: Try and educate more people on the dangers of self piercing and go to a reputable shop!
