Old one but it still pisses me off

When I was 14 I got my second set of ear piercings done at a Claire's...this bimbo kept marking on the bottom EDGE of my ear! She just kept saying she was trying to get it "lined up with the other ones" but unless she was trying to make a horizontal line, she failed. The result, believe it or not, was after me telling her to move it up about 4 times.
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.

this is what I now have to see on myself every dayCollapse )

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.
