A WOMAN claims she had an interaction with a “rude a**” piercer and shared the experience in a now viral clip.
Ari, also known as @bigcatari on TikTok, shared a minute-long clip of herself getting a skin piercing on her chest that went very wrong.
“Watch me have an exciting experience ruined by a rude A$$ piercer,” she wrote using the video’s onscreen caption.
Ari lies down on the chair in the store and looks up while waiting for the procedure.
Her friend, who is filming, says offscreen, “You’re doing great, sweetheart.
Ari laughs before the piercer appears on screen and sticks the needle into her chest while gasping and wincing in pain.
She claims the piercer gave no advance warning before the procedure began.
While placing a tissue over the entry wound, Aris Piercing says, “Don’t be mad at me, you wanted it,” before bringing a pair of blunt scissors to the spot.
Using the app’s text overlay feature, Ari explains that she wasn’t “crazy” at the time, but “unwell.”
The piercer then plays with the jewelry before removing it from Ari’s chest and replacing it, stretching her skin in the process.
“So rude to me???” Ari wrote. “Do you want it to look like… not flat?”
The clip has been viewed over 10 million times, with many showing mixed reactions in the comments as some sympathized with Ari and agreed the piercer was rude in handling the stud’s insertion.
“How is it healing now? The whole thing seemed… wrong?” wrote one user.
Another claimed to be a piercer himself, warning that Ari’s piercing “wasn’t how it was supposed to work.”
Ari pinned a comment asking viewers to stop leaving negative reviews on the piercer’s store, adding that she wished he’d been kinder to her.
“The way I was uncomfortable, not angry, he probably felt that and didn’t want to feel the shame, so he got defensive,” she said.
According to WebMD, sternum piercings like the one Ari received require more maintenance than piercings on other parts of the body.
“Because these long bar piercings involve a lot of skin, a sternum piercing can take longer to heal than an eyebrow or ear piercing. However, it should heal completely in about 6 to 12 weeks.”
