A body piercer has revealed the worst appointments he's had to deal with during the 40C heatwave in a hilarious TikTok video.
Adhum Price, a Professional Cosmetic Body Piercer at Blue Banana, Birmingham was en route to Nottingham to get more training on X-rated piercings when the weather started heating up.

And Adhum soon realised he'd have to deal with sweaty bodies, made worse by the areas which was piercing.
Posting on his TikTok @adhum_price, he said: "Most of you already know I'm a body piercer.
"It's 8am, I'm on my way to the train station and it's 24C. I'm going to Nottingham today to further my training in willy piercings – it is not the day to be around sweaty balls."
The video has since reached more than 390 likes as other users flocked to the comment section in agreement.

Another added: "You don’t get paid enough."
A third said: "Betty swollocks."
A fourth commented: "I got mine done after a 12-hour shift."
