    Agreed. I can examine the ones with necrosis just fine, but I just scroll past the one up there. Makes me feel kind of ill...

    i just lost my appetite after seeing that lobe.


    re Claires: i'm so proud of myself! i actually kinda let rip at the manager of my local claires (peterborough) couple weeks back. i've heard all their terrible ear piercing advice over and over and i just....snapped. i educated people who probably didn't want to hear it and cleared the shop in 5 minutes flat.

    i'm now in the process of writing a letter to the head office(s) in the UK and USA and i am fully aiming to get piercing guns banned. although now they refer to them as ear piercing "instruments".

    the manager said "i've been manager here and piercing ears for 8 years, i know what i am doing!" and i replied "no, you got 25 minutes training with a piece of equipment that a monkey could use. piercing should be left to the professionals who have trained for years." i also told her about the dangers of the gun, how it can get stuck, the fact the jewellery is cheap and nasty and contains high levels of nickel which can cause terrible reactions, i explained how the "instrument" can't actually be properly cleaned and is not sterile and also passed a comment that i had yet to see anyone wear a pair of gloves which meant their grubby hands were also into the mix....

    she wasn't happy. i have been back since, if looks could kill i would be dead right now.
