If claires wants to brag about piercing over 85 million ears. Perhaps people should be aware of the facts. In the united states 1.8% of the population is infected with Hepatitis C (a potentially fatal liver disease). So if we use that statistic that means that #claires has possibly pierced 1, 530,000 infected people with inferior tools that cannot be properly sterilized. This means that they have then risked infecting a further 83,470,000 people with the hepatitis c virus. Even if you remove the 15% of cases that are believed to be acute (able to be fought off by the body) then the fact still remains that #claires have potentially infected 70,949,500 people with chronic Hepatitis C. This is a debilitating, potentially fatal liver disease people. Know the facts and don’t put your health in the hands of untrained retail staff with dirty instruments. Seek out professionals! Even if it is just an earlobe piercing!
