In the past week, I have had several people come in or call saying that they heard that piercers won't do a tragus anymore because "too many people have died" from it. Or then you have the ones that want to tell you that their friend had a friend that had one done and is now paralyzed (sp?) or worse due to this.
Where do people hear these things? Is it like the tongue and started by parents, etc that don't want their kids to get it done? Who knows."
