Did you know? Silver jewelry should only be worn in 100% healed piercings. Sterling silver is made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% “other metal” (most common: copper). Nowadays, it’s rare that sterling silver contains nickel, but to be on the safe side, people with a nickel allergy should avoid wearing silver.

If you’re in a mood to punch yourself in the face go to youtube and search ‘tattooing myself’
People just don’t know the extent of their ignorance. For anything you can imagine, there is a person out there who knows more than you and/or they are doing it as their profession. You wouldn’t try to do electrical work in your house if you haven’t had some training, because let’s be honest, you’re probably an idiot and you’ll mess it up. So, why in the hell would you tattoo yourself with no training?
This is what happens when you mix tap water with ink and then tattoo with it. It’s called Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. MRSA for short. It shows up in these liquid filled bumps, a couple months after the tattoo is done. Basically what happens is that the bacteria gets trapped with the ink under your skin, your skin heals over, trapping the infection under your skin and then months later you get this. Once you contract MRSA, you have it for life. There is no cure. Most treatments only work for so long because it is resistant to antibiotics. You will start noticing random sores on your body. Some of which won’t heal. Eventually you will get more and more of them will not heal. The infection will eat away at your skin, slowly, until it reaches the bone.
GO. TO. A. PROFESSIONAL. I can not stress this enough. I know people that this is a reality for them. Don’t make the same mistakes they did.
don’t let this be you just because you didn’t want to wait and/or save up money for a good artist so you let some hack in their kitchen do your tattoo
