This is a question Body Mods

This week we hand the honours over to DippyFi, who asks:

"Got your girlfriend stuck on your Prince Albert? Had an argument with your tattoo artist mid-tattoo? Piercing mysteriously dissolved the cartilege in your ear? Or worse: decided to pierce yourself while you were drunk? Go on, I wanna hear all the gory details!"

The closest I've got to body piercing was when a friend stuck a sodding gardening fork through my right hand. It wasn't a good look to be honest.

My mods
By any standards I am heavily tattooed and pierced. I have a total of 33 piercings currently and have had and lost a further 18. I also have 18 tattoos, including several cover-ups - 8 tattoos have been worn and covered at various times. I am currently healing my most recent piece which was completed on Monday - a half-sleeve cover-up of 3 tattoos on my left upper arm. I would make the following recommendations regarding what I have learnt:
1) Never have flash tattoos (i.e. selecting a piece from the catalogue)
2) Never, ever put up with any kind of dodgy hygiene. Always watch your tattooist at work on someone else first. They should sterilise everything in an autoclave, unwrap each needle from a new packet, wear latex gloves throughout and change these EVERY time they touch any surface which is not covered with fresh clingfilm other than your skin and their tattoo gun. The barrel of the tattoo gun shoudl be freshly sterilised in an autoclave immediately before they use it on you. Piercers should also observe the same rules with respect to gloves and use a fresh needle straight out of a packet.
3) Do your research on your tattooist - make sure you have seen an extensive portfolio of their work, meet them and make sure they're not a c0ck and never choose a tattooist based on price - generally you get what you pay for and a great tattoo is priceless. Good work should feature lines of even thickness and blocks of colour should not be patchy.
4) For the best work available in the UK to my mind, use Into You tattoo
