StoriaCrissosa:  Gross. I guarantee it’s the same here, like they probably just use alcohol wipes or something. Ughhhhhhh. Obviously public health doesn’t check on them like they do with tattoo parlours.

While I survived having both sets of bottom holes and a cartilage done at Claires, I wouldnt do it now. I did get a cartilage one done at a real tattoo shop with a larger gauge needle amd a hoop but I was allergic to the metal in it and it would never heal/not hurt. But when I took the earring out finally it has healed back normally. The other side I did with a gun and now since it has been forever since I could wear it (my uni program had a strict dress code) it grew back where I would need to sharp stick it to get something through it but there is still a spot in the actual cartilage that is messed up.

I had my ears and cartilage pierced at Claire’s no prob. Got my seconds done at a piercing shop. Those are the ones that got infected and are now healing over because I ended up having to take them out. Go figure. 😛

I’ve had my first ear lobes pierced at claire’s, my upper cartlidge at Walmart, my second hole lobes at claires, and my mid cartlidge (halfway up the ear) at piercing pagado. All with guns and I have never had any problems with any of them.

What is the deal with the piercing guns? Just that they aren’t clean? I never heard anything about it…


I have had my navel pierced twice at a two different tattoo/piercing parlors and both times my body “rejected” the piercing but that’s a whole other issue and I’m sure it wasn’t their fault. I aslo have a tattoo but that doesn’t matter 😉

Pixienickie:  Illegal in Canada since when? I had mine pierced at a hairdresser here when I was 19… so almost 10 years ago. Have they really outlawed them since?

I haven’t had any problems, but I was lucky, I guess. I definitely have heard about the evils or piercing guns.
