My Own Story



Source: My photo, my ears


What’s awful: I got these done when I was really young at Claire’s and they are horribly crooked. The left photo is fine, that’s how I wanted these piercings to turn out. The right photo just makes me want to cry. Both ears look completely different. It’s like the lady who pierced the second holes was blind or something… it’s so obvious how wonky they are. 

How it can be fixed: I talked to a professional piercer who said he could definitely make another hole between the first and second, where the original second was SUPPOSED to be. NEVER GET YOUR EARS DONE AT CLAIRE’S, OR ANY OTHER PLACE THAT USES A GUN AND DOESN’T TRAIN ITS STAFF. You could end up with depressingly lopsided ears like mine. :(

this happened to mine too. I only got one piercing done with a gun but they are uneven and it makes my second ones look so off ugh. AND they got all scarred up (probably due to shitty aftercare guidelines given by Claire’s) so getting them to close and re-pierce them is gonna be a pain in the ass.

don’t get pierced with piercing guns. guns are bad.
