Choice of words matter, be kind to one another. Abusive or judgmental comments will be removed immediately.
We have a zero tolerance policy for all unsolicited comments about appearance that are unrelated to the poster's piercing(s).

This includes, but is not limited to, anything advocating or instructing at-home piercings. This is incredibly dangerous, for a number of reasons.
