Let me first state that this post is strictly my personal opinion and I am in no way representing any organization or group that I may be part of. 
These were performed by a well known body piercer who has been featured on television and has a significant following online. This piercer obviously did not care about his client’s safety. If these were performed as some type of “play or temporary” piercing then they should have been removed long before they could reject to this degree. These surface anchors were placed in such a way that the client had no chance of successful healing. There were 71 anchors total in this project and you can clearly see that the majority of them have rejected, or are well on their way to rejection. All 71 were performed in one sitting, and unless the client paid well into the thousands of dollars for this project they would had to have been performed with low quality jewelry. Both the placement and lack of quality shows just how reckless a piercer can be when they are trying to promote themselves as a celebrity rather than a true professional. 
This is what happens when a piercer disregards the safety of their client in favor of wanting a “sexy picture” for their portfolio. Do not be fooled by a fresh picture of something like this, or even one that states “after 3 months, no rejection”. You as the client need to realize that when you go to a body piercer you have a choice. You can either select a responsible piercer that will refrain from careless work in favor of offering you a quality piercing that has the ability to give you a pleasant healing result. Or you can select a piercer who either doesn’t know, or doesn’t care what the words “restraint” and “professionalism” mean. 

Please choose your piercer carefully! ryanpba:

We’ve had some requests for a breakdown on piercing studio etiquette for piercing clients, and a few people asking about common gripes piercers may have.

Below is our first installment for etiquette, and things we generally like to complain about as whiny body piercers (kidding…..sort of).
