say no to guns

Posted on Sat, Mar 21, 2009 at 11:38 PM

dear parents, it is a horrible idea to go to any clothing or accessory store and let some 16 year old junior assistant but a piercing gun anywhere near your kids face let alone put holes in them with it,

they do not have a special sterilized section used for only piercings,also you should never get your ears or anything else pierced with a stud with a backing, in should be a hoop for your ears or barbells so you can rotates the jewelry and keep it clean. if you get something pierced with a stud the gun does not adjust to ear size. and you cant sterilize the gun afterwards.

it is just lazy and cheap. it cost 30$ at a piercing and tattoo salon, and they have proper equipment for the procedure and to properly sterilize afterward. you should always educate yourself on the procedure and steps taken so your not going in blind. ask questions. get answers.

and to these stores, you can kick me out when i say something to a mother who thinks its a good idea to take earrings out of one kids ears to pierce another, everyone has a right to know the risks of that if your not going to tell them.

oh and a earring is not a piecing needle, it leads to scarring.

---smarter when i get pierced
