Bianca Hart being treated in hospital after an ear piercing went disastrously wrong. See MASONS story MNEAR: A teenage student had to have part of her ear removed and spend a week on a drip when she caught an infection after a dodgy EAR PIERCING. Pretty Bianca Hart, 18, went with her friend to get the top part of her ear pierced as she prepared for a new life at university. The teenager, who has a phobia of needles, had already had her ear lobes done when she was just six months old. So when Bianca went to Lady Pirates in Leigh-on-sea, Essex, to have the new piercing she did not know what to expect.

A student nearly lost the top half of her ear after a piercing went purple and started oozing pus – leaving her in such excruciating pain she was in hospital on morphine for a week.

Doctors told Bianca Hart, 18, of Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, that she was lucky not to lose an ear, and the tattoo parlour is now being investigated.

The botched £10 operation left Bianca to attend Fresher’s Week with a bandage round her head, vomiting constantly from the infection.

When surgeons cut into her ear to relieve the pressure, they found that the infection had eaten into the cartilage, and had to operate on the infected area.

Bianca, who is studying psychology and criminology at Nottingham Trent University, said: ‘The pain was just so much, it was excruciating. The piercing was disgusting as well, it was bright purple and oozing pus.

‘By the end I was throwing up constantly because it was so bad.

‘They operated and found that my cartilage had just disintegrated. The surgeons just had to try and build my ear again.

‘I can’t even look at my ear because it just reminds me of that horrible time I went through.

‘People keep laughing at me because I was in hospital for a week after having an ear piercing. It just shouldn’t happen.’

‘When it didn’t settle I went back to the shop and she said it ‘needed to breathe’.

‘She took it out and put a tongue bar in which was apparently the worst thing she could have done.

‘I would never get anything pierced again.’

Bianca had the piercings done at the Lady Pirates parlour in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex at the end of August.

Lady Pirates owner Carrie Blood insisted Bianca caused the infection herself.

She said: ‘If the first thing she did was touch it when she left the shop then it is going to get infected. We can’t control what they do when they leave here.

‘We have been trading for four years, done thousands of piercings and this is our first complaint.

‘When we changed the bar it wasn’t infected. We told her that if it was bothering her then she should take it out but she didn’t.

‘Everything we do is by the book. It is what they choose to do afterward that leads to what happens with the healing process.

‘As far as I am concerned we have done nothing wrong.’

A spokesman for Southend-on-Sea Borough Council said: ‘As soon as this matter was reported to us, we began an investigation which is still ongoing.

‘There are strict laws governing body piercing and we make regular checks of all establishments which offer this service.’
