When I was 16, I decided I wanted to get my upper ears pierced and went to a little beach store to have it done. It was the worst idea ever! I got infections in both pierce sites so bad I couldn’t even sleep. It’s so terribly important to buy quality jewelry like from and go to a qualified piercing place that will be careful with making sure everything is sterile and make sure to get aftercare products from as well to keep the piercings clean so they don’t get infected!
