With modifications becoming more commonplace every year, it’s not surprising to see that many people know next to nothing about modifications, but still choose to get them with only the information that everyone knows. So here are some things that you probably didn’t know about modifications. (Like tattoos, piercings, and stretched lobes.)
You cannot get a tattoo when you’re drunk. This is because alcohol causes the blood to thin. When a tattoo gun touches your skin, it creates little cuts. Getting a tattoo while drunk can cause you to lose a lot of blood. Not to mention the fact that it might mess with the quality of the tattoo.
Some inks will react differently to your skin. For example, many people are allergic to red ink. This can cause a rash, which also might mess up the quality of your tattoo. Additionally, yellow ink fades really easily.
Acrylic is a big no no in all piercings. This includes stretched lobes. Acrylic is a bad material to use because it is porous. This means that it’s more likely to carry bacteria, which can really mess up your piercing and make you sick. Additionally, do NOT buy plugs that are made out of polymer clay. This is also extremely porous and can royally jack up your ears. Some good materials are Surgical Steel, Stone, and Glass.
TAPERS ARE NOT JEWELRY. Tapers are a stretching instrument that looks a bit like a cone. While these can be used up to a 2g, some piercers suggest avoiding them completely. Tapers should never be worn for more than a few minutes. This is because they weigh unevenly on your lobes, which can cause a bad stretch, tearing, and blowouts. Alternatively, bondage tape (which you can get at any Spencers) can be used to properly stretch your lobes.
Piercing guns are bad news! They’re completely unsterile, and they can cause serious tissue trauma. A piercing gun basically forces a blunt piece of jewelry through the skin. This causes the skin to rip open to make room for the jewelry. Then it places the jewelry snugly against the skin, giving no room for the piercing to breathe. An actual needle piercing, done by a professional, is much safer and MUCH less painful.
Tattoos are much more sensitive than you think, and they take a lot longer to heal than what people may tell you. First of all, while the pain can go away after a week or two, the tattoo will not be fully healed for at least two months. While healing, you have to keep the tattoo as safe and clean as possible. That means no baths, no tanning, no swimming, etc. You also must lotion it often (don’t over-saturate it) and wash it three times a day. Think of it as any other open wound. You wouldn’t let it get dirty, would you?
Everyone has a different pain tolerance. Asking your friend how much their tattoo or piercing hurt won’t be accurate to you, since you might have a higher or lower pain threshold.
Stretching your lobes is absolutely NOT supposed to be painful. At most, you’re supposed to feel a little pressure, but that’s it. When done right, it is painless. For some reason, people seem to keep saying that stretching is like getting a piercing over and over again, but that is completely untrue. Stretching is literally just that, the stretching of the skin. Additionally, you MUST wait between stretches. You need to give your skin time to relax into the stretch and regain elasticity.
I think this about wraps it up. I hope this was informative. I welcome (correct) additions to this post.
so here’s a thing I was thinking. i hear people say:
"guys with beards are hot"
"guys with tattoos are hot"
"tall guys are hot"
"guys with piercings are hot"
I have all of those things, but I’m not hot. so I’ve pretty much distilled it down to this, what they really mean:
'Some hot guys have beards, tattoos, are tall, or have piercings”.
They would still be hot without any of those, and I am still not
So it goes.

Think about it.
If you hate on furries
You have no right to watch popular shows such as adventure time, regular show, pretty much ANY show with a talking animal.
wait…talking animals are NOT the same thing as furries. Furries are humans in animal suits with a known subculture of receiving sexual gratification while doing so.
That’s cool if it’s your thing, but it isn’t the same as watching a cartoon with a talking animal.

Client: I need you to remove those pixels from the page headline.
Me: What pixels?
Client: The two grey pixels between the “E” and the “T” in the title headline. I can’t understand why you put them there in the first place.
Me: The headline is the company logo on a white background. I can’t see any grey pixels there.
Client: Oh, they disappeared!
Me: Sounds very, very strange… Did you do anything to make them go away?
Client: No, not really. I just moved the browser window. Wait! They’re on my desktop now! How on earth did that happen??
I told the client to dust-wipe his screen. Problem solved.
