Do not buy body jewelry from Hot Topic!


I just want to second the other post about not buying Hot Topic body jewelry…I bought some “6g” pinchers and couldn’t get them in my ear; they were too big. I’d been stretched to 6g for months, so there shouldn’t have been a problem, unless of course they mislabeled their body jewelry. I tried to return/exchange them and they refused to take them back even though it was their fault for selling me “6g” pinchers that were actually larger than that!

Hot Topic is notoriously bad for not sizing their jewellery properly. It is absolutely ridiculous; they should be follow the general standards.

    Hot topic has some of the shittiest body jewelry I’ve ever seen. Sally’s really takes the cake though.
