A friend and I got in a rather heated debate about whether or not this was the proper way to do this surface piercing. Using my general knowledge of piercing + what I've read up on the best possible techniques or doing surface piercing I said that it was not. My friends argument against it was more or less, you have one surface piercing so you think you're an expert, you have no idea what you are talking about. Info about piercing: Apparently the kid who got these done has a scar running up his arm so he decided to get surface piercing running all the way up and down the scar. My friend insists that it is a super thick (down into the skin) scar, from looking at the picture, it only looks like the scar only goes a little deeper at the very top (where the piercer is working) I tried to explain to him with a proper sized surface bar that was bent to the proper shape would have been a much better way to do the piercing rather then with rings. He insisted that I was wrong and I had no idea what I was talking about. Who was correct in this arguement? edited to make this easier to read.
