It means the person is straight edge.. edit by lily, no it doesnt. if the x is across the hand, its straight edge which is against drugs and alcohal. but if the tattoo is between the finger and thumb, it means your a druggie. my mom and her friends got them when they were 16 about. trust me on this...

Depends. My Cousin Hailey did mine with a Hollow Needle, and the piercing didn't hurt.. until the morning. I was quite intoxicated at the time. Get a LONG bar because it swells ALOT Get your piercing done by a professional body piercer . Body Piercing is not a hobby or recreational activity,...

Who told you that? Body piercing is not contraindicated to waxing. Bottom line if the piercing is new then you wouldn't want to be waxing that area once the piercing is done and healing, however once healed there is no issue with waxing around a piercing.
If it is to clean its fine just dont play with it infections are easy to get with an open wound. Wash your hands beforehand.

Depending on the Size of your lips I would get a Long Tongue Bar 18-16g Because your lips swell up
I have my Tongue pierced too. I noticed the same cut, Was it self done? I have heard your tongue is the fastest healing part of your body so if you take out the jewelry it should heal right up.
Well don't force it just keep cleaning it normally and it will start to move on it's own. Movement can usually be seen by about the 2nd weeks of cleaning, this is an indication that the piercing is healing well.

I believe it's a gang tattoo associated with either the Aryan brotherhood or an Oklahoma city gang
I've had my belly button pierced and i can honestly say it didnt hurt for that long, obviously its all dependant on the person however, personally id say for 2-3 days it can become sore, try to avoid bending down because it can rub and delay the healing process but also cause discomfort. Make sure...
Since a lip piercing is a surface piercing, definitely make sure you care for it! If the piercing rejects, it's because the body wasn't able to become immune to the object inside the skin. I highly recommend purchasing H2Ocean piercing spray, it's a life saver. H2O spray helps properly care for a...

Shouldn't matter as long as you have an adult with you.
Original answer NO- at least not during his campaign. In fact, he did even make speeches during his campaign. (It used to be thought unseemly for a candidate to campaign for himself. )

It's true that in most states, it is only required for the studio to have certification. They cannot require that anyone provide proof of training. However, some states do require that the artists at least be certified in blood borne pathogens, but that is not the case in all states. So, it's up to...
Yes. A little bit of puffiness, redness, and soreness is normal. If it swells an incredible amount, turns very red or is EXTREMELY sensitive to touch then it may be infected. In that case I'd suggest to take them out, clean the area thoroughly and apply Neosporin or Bactine. If you don't want to...

teenagers get tattoos for many reasons just like everyone else, they could be doing it because its a fade going around at school, they want a tattoo of someone or something they love, personal reasons, social reasons, friends or just because they can.
Sucking ice will help with the swelling, but runs very short on flavor and nutrition. You will not want to chew much as your swollen tongue will be very prone to you biting it accidentally as well as trying to avoid pressure on the new piercing itself. Clear broth and soups are good starters. I...
