And yes, it was with a piercing gun. I didn't know any better at 14 and my stepmom sure as hell didn't either. Nevar again!
I actually get comments from people on a regular basis, asking if they were supposed to look like that, and I recount this story. Posting about it makes me want to take them out finally and have a professional do it. It's been almost 10 years and I still get pissed when I think about it.
I wish I had kept pushing her to move the location even more, but she was making me feel stupid and that she knew what she was doing. I just really hope she didn't screw up a lot of other people's piercings like that. So glad I have enough piercings and tattoos now that I know when to walk away before I regret giving in to pressure.
Oh, and it took almost a year to heal because they kept getting infected. Shocker.
