rabbitoftheaurora asked: Can you please STOP giving out piercing advice? Your advice is wrong and will cause more harm than good.
not sure where you see wrong advice, but no.

whoops fixed it
Taken off facebook from Kyle, this is an acrylic taper that has started to break down due to body heat from being worn. Just say no to acrylic jewelry and tapers.
Anyone else want to throw out their acrylic?
So this is my ear. I got some cheap silicone tunnels that were clearly not silicone. I’ve worn real silicone before with no problems. My ears are fully healed (haven’t stretched since the spring) and they fit perfectly. My ears are currently oozing, red, itchy, and swollen. My dr confirmed that it is a severe allergic reaction and I am currently on Benadryl, steroid cream and an antibiotic cream. Another example of you get what you pay for.
Anonymous asked: Hi! So when I was younger I asked my mom if I could get my second holes. I tried to get her to take me to a shop but she's "scared" of the people there (judgmental bitch). So she took me to Claire's and well. The right side second hole is okay but the left side looks like an angry cat butt with bumps on it. I put Neosporin on it but I don't even know if that's okay. What should I do??
Try putting tea tree oil on it. That’ll moisturize it more. But what kind of bumps? are they little? or big and angry?
hylianatheart asked: When I was 11, I pierced my own ear because my parents wouldn't let me get second holes. I shoved a starter earring from Claire's in my ear and it was really painful. I didn't even clean the earring. I'm 19 and regret it to this day. It never got infected but now my triple lobe piercings are all too close together because I did just one hole myself. Needless to say, I learned my lesson early on and anyone who self-pierces is just really dumb. I will never fuck myself over like that again.
I wish there were more people like you in this world. Hey, at least you learned your lesson!
OH MY GOD WHY
Anonymous asked: I adore your blog, you may be blunt about telling people off but so what? I have been getting properly and professionally pierced since I was 13 (with my mothers permission of course), I'm 16 now and not one of my piercings have ever been infected due to proper aftercare, thank you for educating people and I hope you put more and more people off self modifying with this awesome blog :)
awe you’re awesome! and good for you! thanks!
Anonymous asked: I recently got my brother done, but with my new job and it being slightly crooked. I took it out, and now there is sort of an abscess. Any idea?...
Um, can you re-phrase this possibly?
Anonymous asked: But then again, you're fucking stupid for saying that as long as a professional piercer has an autoclave, they can work at home. You don't condone unsterile materials, but an unsterile environment is totally cool to you. What the fuck..
Nah you gotta have a sterile environment too. I’ve made a post about this before. You gotta make sure the environment is completely sterile and follow all OSHA guidelines and rules. Blood borne pathogen classes are also a must along with CPR for safety.
Anonymous asked: I love how most of the people that try and defend self-piercing/tattooing are self-modifiers themselves. Using the whole "I pierced myself like 17 times and I'm fine!" thing is literally no excuse for being a dumbass. Your blog is rad and fucking entertaining. Keep it up.
Anonymous asked: This is probably going to sound like a really silly question and i do apologise, but my tragus piercing rejected and literally dropped out of my ear whilst i was in class. (about 3 years ago) and I just wondered if my body rejected it once, will it always reject or is it due to not looking after it properly/fault of the piercer who placed it in that position? I do know that the place is a jewelers in town and is really old and dusty too. I always wondered about piercing rejections!
Usually piercings rejecting just have to do with your own body and what it can take. But in some cases it can have to do with how it was pierced. It might or might not reject again. Now that there’s scar tissue it’ll suck a little more to get it pierced and have it heal, but if you really want to try again, I would suggest the other ear :)

And here everyone is a classic example of plain stupidity
