my anxiety gets 700% worse when someone says “can i talk to you”
My taste in music ranges from “you need to listen to this” to “I know, please don’t judge me.”
The only thing preventing me from smashing my alarm clock at 6am is the fact that it’s my cellphone.
one thing i hate is when parents refuse to let their kid(s) dye their hair
who’s fucking hair is it??????? is iT THE FAMILY HAIR?????????
My mum said “if I don’t let you dye your hair you’d do it anyway. I’m just gonna reduce any arguments by letting you do it”
You know what I’ve had it…I’m gonna sound like a complete bitch but I don’t care!!!
When I was 3 my little sister was born with a severe heart condition an without surgery she would have died. Now I’m not from a very rich family, my parents had to get loans from the bank and put a stop on our new home that would have enough room for all 5 of us. My older sister and I had to stay with our grandmother 5 hours away from our home town. My parents had to travel 4 hours away from our home town for her treatment.
We never asked people to give us money, we never even thought of creating a donation drive. My parents sucked it up and did what they, as parents, had to do. Hell even to this day with all her doctors visits for her lungs, heart and brain, we travel to her specialists that are hours away, and we work out how to pay for them.
It really annoys me when I see things online saying “help family raise *insert amount here* for this poor child” because, to me, that shouts “we don’t want to pay for our child’s health care, do it for us”
Well if something is actually marketed as “surgical” steel then its not high quality. Surgical steel is a grade used for surgical tools, not quality jewelry. Think about that one, what does body jewelry have to do with surgery? Cheap steel would be surgical steel and 316L steel, you’ll also want to avoid anything externally threaded. What you would want is ASTM implant certified F-138 steel. That is steel that is meant to be under the skin. If the steel is hand polished from a reputable manufacturer there will be a thin layer of chromium oxide on the surface which makes it more “biocompatible”, but even that will still have nickel content. If you have sensitive skin any steel could potentially give you an allergic reaction.
Many piercers who can afford it will choose titanium as their standard metal due its lack of nickel. If you have sensitive skin you may want to consider steel alternatives; titanium, niobium, gold, or glass.
not tattoo related but still very helpful
Also medical plastic!!! I have my neck pierced (done almost 3 years ago) and no reactions and I have a severe allergy to nickel…many pharmacies sell medical grade plastic and I swear by it…
