Espcially complicated wraps i.e. Spirall or Neck Wraps.

If you get tangled then you will get burnt as a good friend of mine did with a spirall wrap.

That said and done, if you feel you can do it confidently then go for it.

May my balls of fire set your balls on fire devil

I do spiral wraps because they look awesome, however I do quite often get burned from doing so. I try to wear a long sleeve hoodie, if I don't have a hood/hat I avoid stuff near my head cause I got really fluffy hair that would go up in a second.

I didn't do thread the needle for a while cause I kept getting them tangled up in such a way that they were difficult to get off, but I eventually worked out a method (point arms straight down & shake em).

Wouldn't try a neck wrap just cause the neck is a sensitive area if you got burned there it would really hurt, although if it was back of the neck & I had them practiced to a tee I'd consider it.

So, basically it's up to you, but don't hurt yourself trying silly things.

No neck work and nothing that you aren't really really comfortable with.

Like for me, I am very comfortable with TTN so I would do it. But I am not with spirals, so I wouldn't

Nay, whatever comes one hour was sunlit and the most high gods may not make boast of any better thing than to have watched that hour as it passed

Face or genital wraps? Accidental or otherwise. To avoid the latter... simply apply clothes to affected area.
