I went to the Piercing Pagoda in Geen Acres Mall (NY) a while ago to get my ears pierced (2nd whole). The lady seemed to know what she was doing and marked my ears and everything.
She got a gun a did the first one. Fine. Second ear the gun got shut and she had to try to take it out. She proceeded by piercing directly under the first hole.
When I went home I realized that this whole is way too close to the bottom of My earlobe. Soon after I realized that it was too close to my first whole which made it difficult to put in both earrings. I rather go to a tattoo parlor the next time.
Check your marks and ask questions before piercing It. The place where the gun got stuck is also now scared (my camera is not really good enough to capture this)
