Wow. I couldn't read past three or four of them. That's disgusting. I'd never make it as a piercer. I would just say "You are far too disgusting. Please leave."

this makes me want to run right out and get pierced.

"That was probably the fastest jewelry change I’ve ever done. It’s really a shame because the guy was totally cool and probably had amazing stories to tell, I just couldn’t hold my food down while he was there though."

There goes the tradition of 'oral history'...

This makes me ill.

Saw that link the other day. At least I know that I'm not on there - every piercing I've gotten has been within an hour after a shower. I just can't fathom smelling/being that nasty and not even knowing it.

I'd like to read a collection of stories from piercers, but like xmutex, I can't handle more than a few of these. Anyone got any links?

Plutor, if you scroll to the bottom of the linked page there is a link onward to another section, keep doing this and some aren't so sick making. E.g. the 4th page is about angry customers.

Oh. My. God.

Humans are disgusting creatures, aren't they?

The Emergency room is a good place to encounter this. Aside from the smell, there's nothing like undressing a derelict to examine him and seeing hair growing through the undershirt he's been wearing continuously for the past year.

Hmmm...do I really want to make this the first thing I comment on as a new member?

Not a problem here thanks to my handy Backspace key! My tolerance for stories of poor personal hygene is extremely low.

The third page (suicidal customers) is a lot more entertaining. It's just a compendium of wacky things that the customers do to themselves such as:

Some genius got scratched by his cat. The cat’s claw hooked into his earlobe and went halfway through. He pulled the cat’s claw out, thought to himself, “wow, I want an ear piercing right now,” and pushed an old earring stud the rest of the way through the open wound. That’s right, he let his cat pierce him. How tragically hip

An amazing read.

The perverted stories on the next page are a bit easier to take.

How can these people not notice that they reek?? Don't you think that somebody would have pointed it out to them at some point or do they just not ever get laid by anyone who doesn't have a cast iron stomach?

Here's a report in today's press concerning piercings and health. In this report of a US study a majority of those pierced intimately experienced some problem such as infection or change in urine flow, yet only 3% sought professional medical help.

anyone who doesn't have a cast iron stomach

If that's the latest piercing craze, then I want one of those.

You'd better have it enameled, goodnews--there's no way you could maintain the seasoning with all that acid sloshing around.
