A Nickelodeon teen actor has shared a video of herself extremely distressed after discovering her face mask had been pierced into to her ear along with an earring by a technician.
Sissy Sheridan, 16, who appears on Nickelodeon’s web series DIY With Me and has 3million TikTok followers, shared the video of herself crying to the platform as she realized her mask had been pierced into her ear.
The actress had been to an Icing by Claire’s store near her home in Sterling, Virginia, to have a third ear piercing put into each lobe on Monday, accompanied by her mother and a close friend, she told BuzzFeed News.
After getting into the car to travel home and attempting to remove her mask the 16-year-old realized that it had accidentally been pierced through the ear along with the new earring on her right ear.
With no choice but to leave the mask hanging from her ear Miss Sheridan wore the mask home where her mother Leisa helped her cut most of it free by folding her ears forward.
In the video hysterically crying Miss Sheridan can be heard saying: ‘I just got my ears pierced and she pierced it on my mask.
‘I can’t get it off and it hurts so bad. I hate Claire’s. Look at it the white one, its stuck in my ear.

‘And they look so ugly I just want to take them out. Look at it. She pierced it on my mask.’
Miss Sheridan said she had been wearing two masks as she knew the piercing technician would have to come into close proximity with her face.
She later told BuzzFeed News: ‘She [the technician] does the first one, which is the right ear, and that was the one [she got] the mask stuck in.
‘I had no idea. I’m just sitting in the chair. I didn’t feel anything. There was no sign the mask had been punctured in the ear.’
Due to the nerves she felt getting her piercings done the actress only realized what had happened when they left the store to go home.

She can be heard hysterically crying and said her mother had been trying to keep her calm throughout the incident.
Her mother took photos of the ‘negligent’ tangle on her daughter’s ear which she said they have sent to the manager of Icing at the Claire’s store in the hope of a refund.
However Leisa said Claire’s had told them that no refund could be issued for the $73 piercing unless they returned the earrings – which are still stuck in Miss Sheridan’s ears along with a piece of her mask. The earrings are destroyed after being returned.
The manager of the store Carmen Sandy, told Buzzfeed: ‘She needs to bring the earring back and come into the store. I’ll replace it for her [with] a full earring, but she didn’t want to hear it. If she’s unhappy, she needs to call corporate.’
In an update video Miss Sheridan explained that although her mother had been able to remove most of the mask some of it remained inside of her ear, having been forced through when it was pierced.

Claire’s say they are investigating the incident and taking appropriate corrective action. Miss Sheridan said she does not want the employee to be blamed for the ‘freak accident’
She tells her viewers: ‘Basically the mask is gone out of my ear, but there’s still a piece of the plastic string stuck in my ear. When it got pierced it got pierced inside my ear.
‘My ears are too sore and sensitive right now, because they just got a hole pierced through them, to take the earring out. And also if I take the earring out it could close up.
She added: ‘Sorry for being dramatic but I had no idea what to do and it really hurt so that was my reaction. I was crazy I was like aaaahhh.’
Miss Sheridan said she does not want the employee to be blamed for the ‘freak accident’ but said she thinks piercings might need to stop while masks are mandatory in the state of Virginia, reports BuzzFeed.
Claire’s told MailOnline: ‘Over 40 years, Claire’s has pierced more than 100 million ears. Customer well-being is always our main priority.
‘We are investigating this incident and are taking appropriate corrective action. We have reached out to the customer offering support and a full refund, and have updated our ear piercing training guidelines to incorporate mask wearing.’
