Please know what you’re doing before you pierce anything on your own. I know I can hurt myself, but I know what I’m doing so that I won’t. The septum and tongue are especially risky procedures and aren’t recommended for anyone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. I use astringent because it’s mostly alcohol and it’s gentle on your skin. The best disinfectants though are piercing antiseptic. Songs are Situations by New Found Glory and Not Good Enough For Truth In Cliche by Escape The Fate.
