I see messages like this more and more frequently lately. A professional piercer, a for really real professional, is not there to judge you. A truly professional piercer is there is make you feel comfortable and to give you the piercing you want and deserve.
Please do not resort to piercing yourself because you feel embarrassed. Take some time to visit a few piercing shops in your area. Meet the piercers, talk to them about jewelry, and just kind of hang out. If you don’t feel comfortable at the first shop then try another, or another after that. There are plenty of options out there, find the one that feels right to you.
As far as DIY tips that is not what we are here for. We are here to give you information about safe professional piercings. If you’d like to talk more about it come off anon and we can reply privately and maybe give you a referral in your area.
