    Good grief, sometimes it does make you wonder doesn't it, who has the littler brain, the piercer or the one being pierced!!!!!

    Oh you should see the portfolio of one of the local studios here, it's FULL of shallow daiths with hearts and all sorts in.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix

    A friend of mine has started a "mobile piercing" career. Took a course in piercing and has stated she's a qualified piercer now... She uses a gun and the jewellery is just... ergh. She's using heart rings on helix piercings as well. The funny thing is in the research I've done on the internet I know more about safe piercings and the best jewellery than she does. I don't get why someone who is serious about their career wouldn't research better. It's not that heard! I guess cause getting apprenticeships is hard and having a mobile shop and cheaper jewellery seems easier and cheaper than a brick and mortar shop that it's more tempting to just go the quick and cheap route.

    I don't want to say anything because I don't know her that well, and I don't want to seem like a know-it-all or whatever but...

    This looks awful to me, she did the bottom one and it's just pushing the top one weirdly?

    The heart helix and tragus:

    Said only the tragus on this one but the rook heart ring looks fresh too:

    dat rook tho =/

    just... I think the hearts look cute and everything but NOT IN A ROOK (I know this isn't what you were posting about but jeez it looks... put it this way, I hope it's just a bad picture and its not THAT close to being a very painful accident)
    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    I wonder if she's fully registered her business with HMRC and is disposing of her waste legally......you may not want to talk to her but you may let the local authorities know about her

    You know, before she injures someone or spreads a disease :/

    That might be a good idea actually. I don't want to be a dick but it's worrying me what might happen eventually. :/

    ^ you're not a dick if you prevent someone from getting hepatitis or HIV - which is a possible scenario here which then could make her liable to face legal consequences
