    yeah so me and my girlfriend were sitting around 2 sundays ago and decided to pierce my ear so she ran got so me ice and a sewing needle i numbed my ear a little and i pulled my ear down by the lobe while she tried putting the needle through got scared left it in half way hahaha so then she took it out and tried all over went through so she took it out and went to go get an earring the stem of the earring was too big so when she tried to put it through it wouldnt go even with the force she put haha so she got a smaller one and i held me ear down again but it still wouldnt go through so she kept pushing until you heard this little noide she heard it too almost like ripping or i guess you can compare it to takin a plastic bag strthcing it and getting a pen and poking it through the sound it makes haha i odnt know anyway yeah it went in but it didnt go through the hole she made with the needle in the back....ouch so ive had it for two weeks now and i think im gonna have her redo it lower its too highhhhh on my ear lobe and ill use a safety pin this time any of you have stories or tips bout self piercing? oh and i found out she didnt sterilize the needle but she sterilized the earring -sigh- it hasnt infected ive been cleaning it with some solution stuff

    go to a pro.

    there's a whole lot of nerves that you dont want to fuck with.
    Sure the ear is safer than most, but you're still risking it.

    Most tattoo/piercing shop have a few junior-in-training guys.
    They usually pierce for free if you buy the jewlery at their shop.

    if you just wnat to peirce your ear go to walgreens and get the kit....its for kids i beleive.

    i dont understand how you people fuck up on something so simple... i pierced my ears and stretched them to 000g. its easy, just make sure you use a sterile pin, use a lighter, its quick, have rubbing alcohol around too. it helps the would heal. my ears are down to 0g now, cuz i let em shrink for employment reasons.

    when i was at a 4th grade assembly i got bored with what the speaker was sayin an i had a staple for some reason

    so i peirced my ear

    it didnt hurt for some reason but that poppin sound is it break through the skin, i heard it pop once and it got stuck, an then like water came out my ear, then it popped again an it was pierced

    i still have no idea why i did that shit, its not somethin i would do, but anyways yea get a napkin, and the quicker she does it the better/more accurate.

    burn the needle before hand and wipe it down then dip it in alcohal and ice really does nothing but make your ear cold

    yeah... I know that.
    But the term seems to fit welders and plumbers more than guys in tat shops.

    here's a tip for ya: use periods when you type... makes everything a lot easier...
    if you really wanna do it yourself, and not have a shop do it, find yer local needle exchange, and either get those seingle use syringes, or better yet, the individual needles... these will already be sterilized...
    and, skydancer: as for sterilizing it, holding the needle in flame really doesn't do anything... it'll kill off some bacteria, but can actually breed more... to get something truly sterilized you need heat and pressure... that's what autoclaves are for... and rubbing alcohal is also a bad idea... it promotes excessive bleeding, and kills the bacteria that's actually helping the wound heal... meaning it takes longer to heal, and is more likely to scar...

    Me and my friends used to be self piercing pro's...when I was really drunk once, my mormon friend wanted me to pierce underneath his tounge (it was a short lived jack mormon fad 'cause their parents couldnt see it)and I mustve done it 3 times cause i kept fuckin it up(i was pretty drunk). He didn't even flinch though...

    O.K. The following is a less than graphic description of a horrible story. One time I had the courage to do this to myself, I tried it with a fucking nail to my well, lets say something like underneath your tounge, but down there, it worked. I put a ring in there, like 14 guage or something, that I was wearing in my ear beforehand, but I took it out after a few months and it healed, now there is a sebaceous gland there :) . That was fucking dumb, but I already had TMJ, so I retardedly figued I could get away with it. I would say I was lucky. Kind of like people shaving their nutsacks and drinking tussin.
