I'm kinda' in the middle on this issue. First off I already have a piercing and plan on getting one more. But when I got my second pair of holes in my ears I let my friend do it. But he's a professional. However even if he wasn't I would have still let him. Its a trust thing to me.
Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.
well somthings that happen it can hit vaines thats quite bad but for ur belly botton it is really panful and can be infected more easly if not done by a pro.... my firend tryd to do her own and i thought that was quite dumb cs it likely wasnt even staralised.... best bet get it done pro .... i did my own ear though with a needle ... it was quite sor and too a while soo get it donw pro if u really want it done
Well, it usually depends on the skill your friend has. Has he/she done that type of piercing before? I used to own a tattoo gun and I would give myself tattoos. Once I got pretty good at it, I had friends coming for tats then--eventually--THIER friends would pay for tattoos.
It's all a matter of experience. They don't have to be a pro to know what they're doin'. I'd totally let my friend pierce me. I've done it before, but my ear ring holes have closed up since then (never even got to sport jewelry). Personally, my piercing will be professional when I go get it done soon (thinkin' of gettin' my eyebrow and ears pierced), but that's just because I don't know anyone who can do eyebrows. ^_^
someone i trust and i know has done it before i would deffinately let them do it
i have a mom that's a nurse so im not too worried about infections
Sometimes I still dream of you, even though you were so cold
I have gotten my belly button pierced by a professional and I would not even think twice of letting my friend do it....
I mean I understand why anyone would think about that...because friends make you feel less uncomfortable and all
But the consequences could be horrid
DO NOT MAKE ME UNLEASH MY INNER DEMON
I might be a bit biased, but I've seen a person who let friends do the top of the ear and it went horribly wrong and got terrible infected ( This guy was supposed to be a good piercer..). I personally would suggested to get a professionally, unless of course your friend is a professional at it ( meaning, works in the area with a few years experience). But, I guess it's at your own risk, I'm sure there have been plenty of success with just friends doing it ( after seeing what that girl went though..no way I'd do it XD)
I used to do my piercings on my own. Until I decided that I needed to have them professionally done so that way they were in the right spot and the correct way. Like when I got my nose done I was scared and thought I could do it by myself. Then I realized by my friend doing her that it can be more likely to get infected. I went to have my tongue done (Chickened out) and I asked if I could do it myself and he said that I would have a chance hitting a vain in my tongue and bleeding to death...that scared me out of doing it.
So in my opinion you should get it done professionally and not take the chance.
