What is the worst thing that can happen if I pierce my tragus by myself ..*Unprofessionally*?
Terrible_Tash, and universalxhero are both right. Now, please, don't take offence to my advice. I'm not trying to be rude to you, I'm trying to help you from making a big mistake. You DON'T pierce ANYTHING yourself. Honestly, only a true moron would even THINK about doing ANY piercing by their self. Piercings are meant to be done PROFESSIONALLY... no matter what. If you pierce it yourself, chances are you'll end up with infections, it won't heal up correctly, and you probably won't even pierce it right to begin with. Don't listen to ANYONE giving you tips on how to do this yourself. Seriously, they're full of sh*t. They're NOT professionals and they DON'T know what they're doing. Neither do you for that matter. If they would claim to be a professional piercer, ignore them because they're lying. If they were truly a professional, they'd be saying DON'T EVER do ANY piercing yourself. ALWAYS get your piercings done by a PROFESSIONAL like myself.
Please listen to my advice, I know what I'm talking about. You WILL regret doing it yourself and you'll be wishing like hell you would have gotten it done professional. It'll be well worth the price and you won't be sorry, I promise. By getting it done professionally, you will KNOW it's done right and you will have a VERY LOW risk of infection *if you care for it properly that is*. So seriously, DON'T DO IT YOURSELF. Get it done by a PROFESSIONAL.
It can get infected.
It can get irritated.
It can tear your cartilage.
It can be crooked.
It can eat the jewlerry.
It can develop a keloid.
Your entire face can swell.
It can block your ear canal (swelling).
It can reject.
It can migrate.
Hmm and I'm not sure what else...

This is really hard peircing to do by yourself its a pain trust me I've tried and if you dont have the right stuff for it, it can hurt really bad
