    Gag!! Yes, let's add some tape to that taper for good measure... wasn't like her lobes were pissed enough when she had a thick, heavy taper dangling from her ear. :s
    Have: 2g lobes (11/11/12); L 16g conch (07/27/12); 14g VCH (09/01/12) | Next: stretch ALL the things! (lobes: 1g; VCH: 12g)
    Also Want: 8g septum, outer labia, nipples; too many tattoo ideas for my own good; goal size for lobes = 1/2" - 5/8"
    Is it weird that I love piercing crusties...?

    Yeah, I was wondering what was going on with the tape. Maybe she didn't have a 5/8" plug so she decided to tape up a smaller one. Her poor lobe!

    It's not even a taper, I think it's a bottle of liquid eyeliner! Poor lobes :(

    In fact it looks like she's taped a tunnel to the end of it? Am confused...

    Ah that solves the mystery, I was wondering why there was lettering all over it. I hope when she took it out for the next picture she left it out!

    One of my friends has a wee bit of hypertrophic scarring on his scaffolding (But I didn't want to be rude and point it out ) And someone said it's a keloid, put salt paste on it, the doctor said so when I had it, I gave in and corrected her about the 'keloid'.
    It scares me how little medical professions know about piercings though, the NHS article for piercings has incorrect statements and it scares me cause people will use this as a trusted source. They don't state the dangers of guns (IMO, guns should just be banned all together) and in the self-care bit it says "Cleaning the piercing site with saline solution increases your risk of infection."

    Wow, that's awful. I mean, I know doctors usually recommend sea salt soaks but saying it increases the risk for infection? That's just a bit ridiculous. How could two things that are already in the body cause an infection? Maybe they're thinking of people using dirty cups/bowls and contaminated salt but still...
