So, I believe that there is nothing wrong with doing your own, body modification, as long as its not to the extremes. I am a " scratcher" and that merely because it cost me like 45 bucks to get a tattoo kit with all the ink and medical supplies, and ect. while at a tattoo parlor its a minimum of 50. No I'm not doing anything big or extravagant, I"ll leave that to the professionals, or my eyebrow piercing done with a safety pin ( clean) and it turned out great, and I did it for free, while at a shop it would have cost me 60 bucks, which is just ridiculous to me, but if I wanted to get my septum pierced I would probably rather go to a professional. But I do think its ridiculous to trash on those who do it at home.
