    yuck! at least hot topic is mildly innocuous staying to cliche alternative clothing (save for the crap stretching advice and poor jewelry). i just can't understand how anyone would think a tattoo/piercing from that kinda store makes sense. it reduces an art form to basically just another band shirt you can pick off the wall :(

    I don't think it matters too much where a piercer works, but if they don't have the right knowledge or training then yeah it's ridiculous, also the fact that they target young people with extremely low offers is simply dangerous. In many areas where there is a BB a decent piercer will often speak of the work they have to fix or remove because they botch so much.

    If my piercer worked in a store that sold clothing, as long as it was still the same level of work/hygiene then I wouldn't care but the fact these people are sales staff deluded into thinking they can pierce is just scary.

Come right in! *facepalm*
    I don't understand the septum part... males can get their nipples pierced at 16 without consent but you have to be 18 for a septum piercing? What in the world?

    Do some scrolling and you have a picture of a gunned earlobe where the back has sunk in. Underneath that is a picture of it after it's been dug out. I wanted to vomit.

    I think Blue Banana's a cool shop for clothing, most of the people who work there are pretty cool, but i've been to Blue Banana twice with friends who got piercings there (nothing I said could convince them to go to the good piercing studio in our city!) and it was just bizarre. One guy was rude and didn't seem to know what he was doing, and the other time this lady was really friendly and professional. What is the training for BB piercers anyway? I don't get why people would go there over professional piercing studios, it's not like the price difference is huge.

    hey, stay young, and invincible, because we know just who we are
