it literally cost 10 bucks at walmart for two none the less. if you want to disinfect the needle though rubbing alcohol woould work or getting it super hot to kill anything on it. then put rubbing alcohol on your ear after you pierce it for a while. and turn your earring for a week or so everyday so it doesnt get stuck in place with blood and crap. good luck, hope your ear doesnt fall off.

Anyway, yes, alcohol will work/

Get a friend to do it at least, and make sure there is something that the needle gets pushed into, rather than just trying to put it straight in your ear, put a potato behind the lobe.

Rubbing alcohol on it does NOT completly disinfect it. It will get rid of some germs, as will boiling it, but it will not get rid of them all. That's why piercers use autoclaves. If you want to try it, be my guest but there's no guarantee. Also, there's the body mod thread for questions like this.

erm DONT BE SO ****IN STUPID! it cost like 3 gbp to pierce a lobe. iv seen too many cases of ****ed up piercings. Theyre not nice.

You wont pierce it to the right size with a needle, thus no jewellrey will fit in comfortably which will cause rejection.

My advice is to get it done properly, for a few quid/bucks its not worth losing part of your lobe for!

yeah it costs like 10 bucks to get lobes pierced. but sometimes for fun i just do it myself without putting a ring in. It'll be okay if you clean it, and clean the jewerly. Its not like painful or anything lol.

First heat the needle with a lighter for some seconds till it changes colour (that means all the gems are killed) and then clean it with alcohol be4 you pierce your ear

erm, if you pierce say a lobe with a sewing needle, the likely hood of it being say a 1.2mm are few and far between. And thats the most regular size really.

Plus i was trying to put him off......foiled!

there's nothing wrong with piercing your own ears... tea tree oil is your friend, it kills any infections and skin irritations etc clear up really fast with it. put some on after you pierce your ear, it'll be fine. =) hope this helps

yeah i treid twice but only went thru the 1st layer.the holes are sealed up already. so nawh i wont do it then
#21
You're better off getting it done properly... I have loadsa ear piercings and I wouldnt ever do them myself, its seems silly seeing as though its relatively inexpensive to get done. If the holes already there but its starting to close up, I have no problem jamming a pin or an earring in to reopen a hole. I know from experience that this can cause more pain and problems than getting the piercings done in the first place, so I'd imagine piercing them yourself could cause even more. It can lead to swollen glands and stuff in your neck... its not really worth it

You shouldnt put alcohol on the hole straight away either.. that cant be good.... =/

First, Body Mod thread.

Second, risk of infection isn't as high as everyone makes it out to be. I did my lobe with a rusty drywall nail I found on my bathroom floor, no problems whatsoever. Just take care of it.

No you didn't. And if you did, **** you're dumb. You can hardly say 'take care of it' if you would happily cause the excessive tissue damage to your ear, and say it was fine to do so.

i didn't recommend it, I just said I did it without any infection. I did have a nasty piece of flesh hanging off the back of my ear where it was torn for about a week and a half until it finally totally crusted over and dried up.

Exactly. I'm just saying it's slightly hypocritical to say take care of piercings if that's how you pierced yourself. Fine if you understand it was bad, but you could've made it clear .

Ah, in that case: Attention UG: Do NOT attempt any idiotic piercing procedures previously used by Gemini. Thank you.




Anywho, what I meant by take care of it is keep it clean and watch it closely in case any infection does happen to take place.

my god. for starters if your heating a needle long enuff for it to change colors youa re changing the chem. struckture of the needle. basicly the germs may be gone but your asking for tetnus. any way... do NOT use anything to clean your peirceing but distilled water and sea salt. Trust me i have many peirceings. use like 1/4 tsp sea salt to a cup of distiled water. and besides if you wern't a pansy you would get it done professionaly and we wouldn't be haveing this convo. so ya. do it right and you will be happy. do it wrong and youll be called left ear for the rest of your life...

Take a lighter and burn the end of it for a minute. Let it cool down, but don't set it down. Then, poor rubbing alcohol on it. And, you're good to go. Make sure to take a Q-tip with alcohol or peroxide on it and rub it against your lobeholethingy once every day for a couple of weeks.
