What Do Infected Piercings Look Like?

Body piercings are so sexy…but when piercings have gone wrong, it can be quite messy.

If you’re not fan of cringeworthy, disgusting stuff, look away now. We are warning you: This is not for the faint-hearted.

Either you have piercings that you didn’t take care of or piercings that were done in poor taste, it all will result to one thing: infection.

Sometimes, infected piercings are so bad you need to see them, so you’ll be warned not to take your piercings for granted. And since we want to warn you (or please you if you’re into things like this — gross but satisfying), we’ve got you some vomit-inducing, sickening and spine-tingling photos of unbelievable infected piercings .
