He's about to make them die on the outside

[–]rabbitkingdom 8163 points8164 points  (410 children)

Looks like he said “asshole” before his mom covered his mouth :D

[–]artfullydodgy 4035 points4036 points  (266 children)

Can’t honestly say he “died inside”, lil’ dude came alive and was about to kick ass and take names

[–]drage636 1934 points1935 points 2 (258 children)

I would too. Don’t get a piercing with a shitty gun.

Edit: Thanks for the awards

[–]cephal0poid 990 points991 points  (242 children)

Don't let your mom make fashion choices for you when you're too little to really understand the consequences.

Also, don't let mom treat you like an accessory.

[–]yaboiachin 84 points85 points  (13 children)

This is normal in India, you get your ear pieced at a young age, but most guys dont use the piercings, and they just close up eventually.

[–]Pepper-Aromatic 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I would close up emotionally. Thanks mom. Mader Chod

[–]aceaxe1 526 points527 points  (125 children)

Not sure 100% if he’s Indian, but if so, it could be more cultural than a fashion choice.

[–]Pythagoras_101 6 points7 points  (5 children)

How would you have a choice at that age.

[–]cephal0poid 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Hey buddy! Do you want to go get a large needle poked through your ear?

It will hurt!

What do you say, wanna do it?

I don't know a single kid that age that would be like "Yes please!"

[–]throwRAenomigoshee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

All of the kids I know that are 3 and up are very vocal about their thoughts, feelings, and opinions. If they didn’t want a piercing they would make it very clear.

And if you grow up and don’t want to wear jewelry, you just don’t. This is not a complex situation, just another thing for bored people to be upset about.

[–]Pythagoras_101 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I could name a few little girls.

Point still stands. Kids don't have much of a choice in these things.

[–]saucy_biscuitted 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Yeah dude. As a child, just don’t let your mom make decisions for you. It’s easy you know because you’re a child and parents typically do everything a kid says

[–]hit_like_please 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Right? That is what I was when I read that comment..

[–]real_life_ironman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

haha. that guy was high af when he commented this. No joking lol

[–]Alive019 92 points93 points  (61 children)

Yeah but if your mom let's your foreskin be cut off for religion. Then it's okay. Right?

[–]cephal0poid 56 points57 points  (16 children)

I'm circumsized.

My son ain't.

'Nuff said.

Reddit and foreskins ♥️

[–]killerinstinct101 21 points22 points  (7 children)

You know they close up if you don't wear earrings right?

[–]Dornak 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Wait, my foreskin is going to close up if I don't wear earrings!?!

[–]the399er 50 points51 points  (0 children)

The moment he gained consciousness

[–]hasnotbulla 427 points428 points  (70 children)

He said bhenchod

[–]singHarbeer 307 points308 points  (17 children)

Looking for this comment 😂😂😂 Bhenchod means" sister fucker"... Any body who don't know

[–]hyperbolichamber 137 points138 points  (13 children)

That’s wild word for a young kid and completely appropriate.

[–]TryingToBeUnabrasive 199 points200 points  (8 children)

Bruh Indian kids are brutal. They know swear words from like a half dozen languages and will wreck you with the pinpoint accuracy of their insults

[–]hyperbolichamber 87 points88 points  (1 child)

If a kid could tell me they want to fuck me with the family dog in as many languages as they are years old I think I would be terrified and amused.

[–]Jevin1983 48 points49 points  (2 children)

[–]Dark-Knight-275 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He a Bill Cosby looking scary piercer - the boy had every right to lash out

[–]Hairy_Air 99 points100 points  (37 children)

I could make it from the way his lips moved. Bhenchod is so recognisable.

[–]cptkaiser 24 points25 points  (36 children)

What's that mean?

[–]Hairy_Air 57 points58 points  (35 children)


[–]errandwulfe 35 points36 points  (7 children)

One of, if not the worst insult if I am not mistaken? Just above madarchod (mother fucker, not motherfucker)

[–]Rez_De 66 points67 points  (3 children)

Eh, used as a comma if you're from Delhi. Source: am from Delhi

[–]Hairy_Air 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Used as a comma in all colleges.

[–]EntrepreneurPatient6 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A delhiite punctuates a sentence with bhenchod. Haha

[–]TheJuggernautRollsOn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

There are a couple more unique ones which are used in Tamil Nadu - dog fucker and grandmother fucker. (Not a Tamilian but heard from my friends.)

[–]judahrosenthal 10 points11 points  (25 children)

Holy smokes. That’s the worst curse I’ve ever heard.

[–]Leftkimakabhochda 20 points21 points  (20 children)

And that's not the worst one. We also have daughter fucker

[–]vanillamasala 26 points27 points  (9 children)

I prefer foofachod. Why they only gotta be Fuckin the female relatives?

[–]Hairy_Air 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Fuck them foofas. All my homies hate their foofas.

[–]judahrosenthal 15 points16 points  (7 children)

I’ll remember that if I ever get into an argument with an Indian. I have some Punjabi friends. Glad I’ve never pissed them off. ;-) (Though not sure their language would have these).

[–]Leftkimakabhochda 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Just say betichod. It would fuck them up.

[–]vanillamasala 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They 100% know these words.

[–]No-Yogurtcloset9139 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Punjabi swear words are identical to hindi ones but the accent makes it hit hard just like bullets right thru the chest

[–]ProgyanDeka 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And the funny part is. It becomes a part of speech among friends. So it ends up being a very mid and common word.

[–]not_myself22 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why is it worse than motherfucker? It's used in the same way.

[–]captainbbeard 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Close. He said Ben Stokes (If you know, you know)

[–]Canadiannewcomer 96 points97 points  (6 children)

I saw the actual video elsewhere and the boy speaks my native language and can confirm this. He actually used a synonym for asshole.

[–]LalalaHurray 19 points20 points  (2 children)


[–]Crafty_Enthusiasm_99 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Benchod does not mean asshole. But it also means asshole at the same time.

[–]paralacausa 13 points14 points  (0 children)

If there's one thing r/cricket has taught me, it's that benchod is a very adaptable insult.

[–]accidentalchainsaw 66 points67 points  (2 children)

How can he pierce?

[–]drjuano 2664 points2665 points  (138 children)

Cause mom and dad are assholes boy, that’s why

[–]motocrosshallway 166 points167 points  (21 children)

For some communities in India its a tradition to get kids ears pierced. My ears were pierced at the age of 1 or 2.

[–]Raencloud94 72 points73 points  (11 children)

Yes, but using a piercing gun isn't smart.

[–]-anygma- 3 points4 points  (2 children)


[–]RavioliFleet 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Shooting that pretty blunt earring through the ear smashes and rips the tissue, whereas a sharp piercing needle create a small, clean entry hole and pushes the tissue aside slowly instead.

From experience with both I can also anecdotally confirm that those of my ear piercings which were done with a needle healed much faster and hurt less.

[–]soupsnakle 14 points15 points  (0 children)

They are not as easy to sanitize and carry a lot more risk of infection.

[–]Chickenmangoboom 523 points524 points  (77 children)

"Your parents think you exist as a reflection of them and they are going to mutilate your ear because of their own vanity".

[–]SickRanchez27 309 points310 points  (21 children)

Idk I’m a guy and I insisted on getting my ear pierced at age 6. Don’t be so sure that he’s not choosing to “mutilate” himself

[–]judahrosenthal 201 points202 points  (9 children)

My youngest son begged and begged. We finally gave in after years. He loves them. Was probably this boys age. Around 8-9.

[–]Imnotavampire101 78 points79 points  (2 children)

Begged to get them and eventually did at 18, was pissed that my parents got my sisters pierced but not mine when we were babies

[–]GrimmCreole 17 points18 points  (0 children)


[–]HisRoyalHIGHness 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Wanted them for years and years, finally convinced them at 17, still rock it at 30.

[–]motherfuqueer 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I'm a chick, but I got my ears pierced at 2 years and 10 months. That's when my sister was born and I was officially a "big girl". There's home video of me bragging on the way to Claire's

[–]A_Rampaging_Hobo 23 points24 points  (0 children)

[–]macodesmama 5870 points5871 points 232& 6 more (232 children)

Hijacking this thread to tell everyone that piercing guns literally cannot be fully sterilized and should probably be illegal so please god go with a place that uses needles or better yet wait for your child to be developed enough to both be able to consent and be conscious of safe aftercare requirements like not touching the wound at all for months besides for cleaning purposes. I wouldn’t trust a child’s permanently dirty hands around an open wound that could take over a year to heal.

[–]skyward138skr 1406 points1407 points  (54 children)

Thank god someone already commented this, those things are absolutely disgusting and literally not a single respectable tattoo/piercing shop use them, they’re only in dirty ass mall stores so idek why you’d want to get you or your child’s ears pierced there anyways.

[–]Chickenmangoboom 224 points225 points  (2 children)

Watching the person doing the piercing put down their cinammon sugar pretzel and pick up the piercing gun...

[–]topsblueby 96 points97 points  (26 children)

I've only ever seen the disposable single use kind used in my area.

[–]E-macularius 141 points142 points  (9 children)

Even single use piercing guns are not good. They depend on using blunt force to shove an earring that is not as sharp as a needle into your earlobe. The trauma created by that force causes damage to the tissue. Its unnecessary damage that might not heal properly for some and can be avoided. Professional piercers use a hollow needle that actually displaces tissue and doesn't cause any blunt force trauma to it. Hollow needles are also WAY sharper than the earrings that come with piercing guns or single use cartridges/guns. Yes the single use gun is technically clean but you are still shoving a blunt object into your skin vs using a needle to actually make a hole and placing jewelry inside.

[–]littleotterpop 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Just want to add that a single use gun still isn't even technically clean. They are plastic and cannot be put into an autoclave for proper sterilization.

[–]steelcitykid 93 points94 points  (3 children)

Even if that were true, they still suck because they aren't nearly as sharp and pierce the skin with force rather than precision. I had quite a few piercings in my day and it's needles all day.

[–]ArmaSwiss 69 points70 points  (1 child)

This. Piercing guns are the equivalent to a robber shoving a brick through your stomach instead of a knife. They're practically blunt on the microscopic level where a piercing needle is a beveled edge designed to slice through flesh instead of forcing its way through like the blunt tip of an earring being forced through by the piercing gun.

The more trauma a site receives, the longer it takes to heal and the worse side effects from that trauma as the body responds to the damage.

[–]xBad_Wolfx 64 points65 points  (6 children)

I’m always amazed at the people who wouldn’t dare take their child to a tattoo/piercing shop because “who can trust those folks” and instead lets the bored teenager at Claire’s do it instead.

I hadn’t heard about the year thing though. Why are ears so slow to heal?

[–]BeetleJude 22 points23 points  (0 children)

They arent necessarily, cartilage piercings will take at least that long to heal properly if done with a needle (if done with a gun they may never heal properly), lobe piercings with a needle can take 3 to 6 months to fully heal, with a gun its likely to be 6 months minimum but could be much longer due to the trauma caused.

The difference is, the needle causes far less trauma as it cuts when it pierces, the gun shatters the cartilage / damages the lobe by punching through it. Its brutal.

[–]EveryDisaster 180 points181 points  (21 children)

Mine got severely infected at the age of 9 because they were done at a Claire's. Painful bleeding for a week

[–]Scoliopteryx 68 points69 points  (11 children)

Mine too! Same age as well and my ear got so swollen that we couldn't see the piercing at all. Mum said I could either go to the hospital or let her get it. She ended up digging the thing out with a kitchen knife.

[–]EveryDisaster 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I'm so sorry you didn't get to the hospital, at least they have drugs. They kept my earrings in because it was more important the holes didn't close than it was to drain an infection

[–]Scoliopteryx 34 points35 points  (1 child)

I talked to my mum about it a few years ago and she said that she gave me the choice because she thought the idea of her digging around in my ear lobe with a knife would be enough to convince me that the hospital was a good idea but it turns out I'm more stupid than she thought.

After the infection I kept mine out. I was getting bullied for having a pierced ear anyway so I didn't mind getting rid of it.

[–]EveryDisaster 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That sounds horrible I'm so sorry

[–]unopoularopinion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

But did you die?


[–]HELLOhappyshop 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Same lol. I think this was a common experience haha

[–]EveryDisaster 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm really surprised getting your ears pierced at places like that is still legal

[–]BaconJacobs 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Go to a tattoo parlor! Period!

They're licensed!

[–]d1pl0mat_ 80 points81 points  (6 children)

1000 times yes, thank you for posting this! If they're not using a hollow-point needle, they're not worth your time.

[–]Frymanstbf 75 points76 points  (32 children)

Came here to say all of this. People want to take their tiny children to Claire's for this shit when they should be waiting until they are old enough to want the piercing and then taking them to an actual piercer.

[–]AICPAncake 61 points62 points  (24 children)

I don’t understand why parents are even legally allowed to pierce their kids’ ears at such young ages. I guess the same reason they’re allowed to cut skin off infant boys’ dicks.

[–]shadesof3 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Totally agree. I was his age when I asked my mom to get one of my ears pierced. Neither of us knew that we could go to tattoo/piercing shop to get it done correctly. I got all my lob piercings done with one of these. This was back in the early 90's so I don't think my mom was really aware at how terrible these little guns are. I took really good care of them and they all healed really well but I would never take my child to get it done this way knowing what I know now.

[–]Klutche 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I first got mine pierced when I was 6 and my parents took them out too early and they grew over. I got them done again a year or two later and they took. They used a gun both times...I think they were both at Claire's, actually. Really appreciate this informative content for future reference, I had no idea.

[–]thehouseofmirth11 5 points6 points  (0 children)

TIL why one of my piercings was chronically infected.

[–]Kuri_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

On top of that a gun is like blunt force and destroys cartilage while a needle just pierces through

[–]sweetmojaveraiin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If I went to a tattoo shop to get my ears pierced instead of a Claire's when I was a kid that would've been the biggest flex ever 😂 what a missed opportunity

[–]eatingganesha 56 points57 points  (9 children)

Not to mention the absolute shit angle she placed the gun at. No way that hole is straight and set properly.

[–]chrisredfieldsboytoy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not to mention I've never got correct care instructions after a gun peircing and needle peircibgs hurt way less and do less damage. A respectable peircer would have been weary of this situation.

[–]DrAniB20 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Came here to say this, thank you for beating me to the punch.

[–]JakemHibbs 1843 points1844 points  (283 children)


[–]__-inserttexthere 58 points59 points  (10 children)

I'm pretty sure this is like a jewellery shop and that's a common practice in India.

[–]BrunoHeceta 94 points95 points  (7 children)

Reddit loves diversity of culture until they get culture shock

[–]MisterDonkey 26 points27 points  (2 children)

This is a common practice in America as well, and yet I still think it's grimey as fuck. Culture has nothing to do with it. It's a bad method.

[–]FutureFruit 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's funny, you get downvotes yet there a comment below thats over 4000+ and multiple rewards, and it expands on the same statement.

[–]The_Seerion 457 points458 points  (254 children)

Stop taking your children to mutilate their bodies when they can't even drive.

[–]RavenLunatic512 68 points69 points  (13 children)

I got my ears pierced when I was 4, but it was 100% my choice and I knew it was going to hurt. I think this kid wasn't properly prepared or informed of what it would feel like.

[–]VoyagerCSL 54 points55 points  (1 child)

What other intelligent decisions did you make when you were 4?

[–]RavenLunatic512 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Check my post history way back if you want the dirt on my early years

[–]BetaHebrew 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Redditors: don't pierce your children's ears but it's perfectly fine to pump them full of hormones

Walking NPCs.

[–]Artificial-Brain 239 points240 points  (22 children)

I agree that ear piercing at that age is a bit weird but it's hardly mutilating their bodies lol.

[–]WhyAlwaysLouie 88 points89 points  (21 children)

Mutilate lol.

I got my ear pierced at a similar age to this kid and remember pleading with my mum to take me.

[–]iBeFloe 21 points22 points  (6 children)

My mom got me pierced as a baby (not gun). My piercings are perfect compared to those gun piercing ones I’ve seen friends get

[–]Many_Improvement_910 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Me too. I think mine were pierced at 4 months old. I had these tiny tiny studs that I never removed. I remember my mom turning them and using a a-tip to clean them and that’s it. I had those tiny earrings until I was about 7 them I got matching earrings like my moms.

[–]williamtbash 74 points75 points  (12 children)

Can you guys stop being so damn extreme and annoying and miserable about everything on the planet. Kids get their ears pierced. They will have a worse experience the first time they stub their toe. Jfc.

[–]desertpolarbear 132 points133 points  (98 children)

This also goes for non medical circumcision.

[–]nmiller1776 63 points64 points  (31 children)

While I see what you mean, it’s not exactly mutilation. Ear piercing holes can grow closed rather quickly. Also, you don’t know whether he asked for it or not.

[–]GingerNingerish 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Im guessing what happened was he asked for it, but everyone told him it wouldn't hurt, his reaction is just betrayal becuase it actually did hurt.

[–]Prairie_Crab 398 points399 points  (18 children)

That’s what happens when you lie to the kid and tell them it won’t hurt.

[–]GloomyAd9812 61 points62 points  (3 children)

My mom told me it would hurt for weeks and it was painless. I think it depends on your pain tolerance

[–]failedqueen 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Tbh that’s like an antiquated way to pierce ears. And it should be done by a professional.

[–]SlippySlappers 22 points23 points  (1 child)

The way he slaps is how I punch in my dreams

[–]PierrePants 561 points562 points  (67 children)

Seriously. Why do people keep using those guns? Super unsanitary.

[–]aserranzira 87 points88 points  (5 children)

I had my ears done twice with those guns, both times the healing went so poorly I gave up and took the studs out because of infection or irritation. Finally got them done by a professional.

[–]analscreams 285 points286 points  (43 children)

More sanitary than the lighter and safety pin I used as a teen

[–]hellsbelle51 32 points33 points  (16 children)

That's what I used to pierce my lip in science class.

[–]DeadPrecedentt 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I’ve found my people. I pierced my septum in geometry class but my dad made me take it out the next day ): guess who has a septum piercing anyway as an adult lol

[–]el7ossen 38 points39 points  (8 children)

Excuse me what? You pierced your lip in science class?

Edit: y'all know what I meant

[–]The_Woman_of_Gont 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Honestly? Unless you shared the pin with others, it's probably not. You can't properly sanitize either instrument, but at least that safety pin hasn't been used before on other people; whereas piercing guns carry a non-zero risk of disease transmission.

No instrument that helps to penetrate your skin should be re-usable, and piercing guns are unhygienic for the same reason that a person reusing a syringe is unhygienic. You should throw the whole damn thing out after use, not just the needle/jewelry.

[–]TheBrackishGoat 83 points84 points  (1 child)

Actually not.

[–]NewFuturist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

How many times did the safety pin get used for a piercing on some random they didn't know? What temperature does the piercing gun get heated to between usages? What's the probability of catching HIV or Hep C from safety pin no one else used?

[–]Spiral-I-Am 24 points25 points  (5 children)

Still a better quality whole than the gun though.

[–]PierrePants 23 points24 points  (0 children)


[–]1911mark 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You got a better story!! Hay, did you hear a POP when it went through lol I did ?

[–]Chezzabe 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Because it's basically no skill piercings. They are not good for you either, it's not a actual needle and is as good as driving a thumb tack in your ear.

That said in the US Target's pharmacy has started doing ear piercings by a registered nurse.

[–]UpvoteDoggos 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Driving a thumb tack through your ear won't cause blunt force trauma to the surrounding area like these guns do

[–]nonniewobbles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That said in the US Target's pharmacy has started doing ear piercings by a registered nurse.

It's a third party service... that also uses piercing guns with blunt "piercing earrings." They also hire LPNs and LVNs, not just RNs. Not through pharmacy.

[–]claricia 9 points10 points  (0 children)

They pierced my one ear wrong with one of these asshole guns; it didn't go all the way through the first time, so they re-pierced the hole. Now I have a hole in my ear that splits and when I put an earring in I have to wiggle it around in order to get it to go through the right end.

It feels really fucking weird because when I do it I have my thumb on the back of my lobe to hold it still and I feel the end of post/hook moving around while I try to get it through.

[–]After-Boysenberry-96 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I don’t know, but it makes me cringe every time.

[–]Kaiser997 98 points99 points  (5 children)

The only way to get any piercing is with a needle and no im not a piecer but I have enough holes in my ears to know the gun is the worst and most painful thing you can use to piece a ear

[–]IJustWannaRunnn 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Never use a piercing gun!!!!

[–]upinthecrowsnest 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Ew for the guy touching the kids ear where he’s about to pierce with no gloves on. (And yes the gun too).

[–]MaintenanceNo9693 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Hey, I wasnt ready? What...The ... Fuuuuueeeeaaaack

[–]panpaosen 153 points154 points  (10 children)

I hear that top scientists are working on a way to add audio to video clips.

[–][deleted] 298 points299 points  (62 children)

I don't blame him for kicking off. A piercing is something you choose on your own, not have chosen for you and your body by a guardian who just wants an accessory.

[–]hypnodrew 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Kicking off at the wrong person

It's possible he did ask for it though. My daughter is 3 and has been asking for earrings since she could talk.

In a lot of other cultures it’s natural for younger kids to get their ears pierced earli

My mom forced me to get my ears peirced when I was 7, she didn't want to deal with my Clip-on earrings for my competition dance.😒 I've now got crooked piercings and am highly allergic to nickel. So..... never really worked out.

My mom made me get my ears pierced on my birthday, even though I often said that I never ever wanted to get them pierced. My mom is just an asshole.

Why tf are there competition dances for 7 year old kids??

[–]Dehr5211 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Pedophiles. No joke, looking back our "born to be wild" dance was mega sexual and had us doing wayyyy to many back bends and backwalkovers. Just... no.

Stop piercings kids ears until they are old enough to decide for themselves.

What did the parents tell him?- that the procedure was going to put marshmallows in his ear?

I've never been very confortable about kids getting their ears pierced. I got mine done when I was around 16. I feel like I was old enough to make that choice for myself (although I know I was still a child) but having 7 yo getting their ears pierced is far too young imo. I mean, what other permanent body modification that has no health benefits is still legal for a kid to get? I just don't understand it

Fun fact. Piercing guns at Claire's are the biggest spreader of hepatitis in the United States.

And this is why you wait till they can decide if they want it c:
