When I was 5 I got my ears pierced for the first time. I took them out. Second time I got them done, a few years later, I did the same thing. The third time I got them pierced, I went to Claire’s. Mistake number 1. They did the normal, unsanitary, unprofessional thing. Wiped my ears with alcohol, marked my ears, & used a gun. They were doing great until one night I went to bed. I went to bed & woke up with the earrings INSIDE my earlobes. I went to the doctors office & he removed the earrings from the back of my earlobes. It was horrible, bloody & painful. Luckily though, I was able to get them re-pierced and done correctly. They’re 100% healed now, as are my second holes.
