Many teenagers want to get tattoos and piercings done, and many adults, especially parents, disapprove. Of course everyone is free to have their own opinion on body modifications, but unfortunately, where there is stark disapproval there is little information. Adults are right- piercings and tattoos can be painful. That’s why it’s so important to know what you’re doing. I’m here to share advice on getting tattoos and piercings the least dangerous and least painful way.
I dare say I have some experience in the matter. I have 5 piercings and a tattoo (and my collection keeps growing), from simple earrings to facial piercings. I’ve had every experience under the sun- the piercing that went so easily I hardly felt it, the piercing that made me pass out, the piercing that got infected. As for the tattoos, I got advice and help from my lovely partner, who has rather more experience and six tattoos.
