do not do it piercing your self anywhere except the ears basically is not safe especially without the proper tools like clean needles or a piercing gun if it gets infected or you do it wrong you will most likely have to go to the hospital and have surgery (not fun)
No, no, no! You need a license to do it for a reason! Doing it on your own will be much more painful and much riskier. Obviously you're not even informed enough on it, it's not a piercing gun. Go to a professional, with a license. If you're too young then wait!
Even if you did have a piercing gun, you should never use it, not even on your ears! Piercing guns are so unsafe and could fracture your cartilage and create excess scarring because they puncture your body not with a needle, but with a blunt piece of jewelry! Never pierce yourself at home unless you licensed and using clean unopened hollow needles! Please get it done professionally and avoid a serious infection
I'm not trying to encourage this .... With that being said . My daughter pierced her nose because I wouldn't take her to get it done . She was 13 . I couldn't believe she did it . Her doctor told her how dangerous it was for her to do what she did . She wore nose jewelry for a short time . She loved the way it looked but , she did it wrong and it was hard for her to keep nose jewelry in her nose . She also pierced her lip . That piercing didn't last two days . She has pierced her ears several times and keeps those in nice . The only time I took her to get pierced was for her first ear piercing . I told her that if she wants anything else , she can do it with a doctor !! Her doctor has had to medically treat a lot of kids who pierce them selves . Her doctor said that every hole you put in your body makes you more vulnerable to infections . Like bacterial and viral .
