Double Bowline

I have to add that the Double Bowline (usually called "Bowline on the Bight") is not unsafe and is one of two "official recommended" Knots for tying in in most of Europe. This is because there is NO possibility of getting loose by itself.
Also there is no "wrong side" to do it.
There are documented accidents of every other version of the Bowline (coming loose even if done correctly), but not one of the Double Bowline.
