One more piercing? So what if you have 10 already! Piercings are one trend that never goes out of trend no matter which year or which century or maybe how many. But before you get yourself a piercing you gotta be sure about the safety and hygiene measures.
When it comes to style and piercing; there isn’t just one way. It could be ear piercing, lip piercing, belly button piercing, eyebrow piercing or a clit piercing (if you’re that daring). However, nothing goes without complication and so does piercing. It is very important that you figure out your safety measures and where do you want to get pierced because every area is different from the other and so differs the healing time and level of infection risk.
1. Danger Ahead!
There is no style without a little pain and patience! Piercing has its own risk;
- Blood borne
When the equipment used for piercing is contaminated with infected blood you may possibly get multiple diseases like hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tetanus and HIV.
- Allergic reactions
Piercing jewelry especially those pieces made of nickel could be the reason for allergic reactions.
2.) Honey do you really need that piercing?
Before you get that piercing done, make sure you really want it, because once done, you can still remove it but why go through that pain and that possible infection. Be sure about where you want to get pierced and if you have a formal environment at work where you’d want to hide that little style statement of yours. But darling if you’re a little jittery about your new stud, maybe wait a little more.
3.) Protection is the key to avoid mishaps!
Cross check your safeties before you get adventurous!
4.) Does the piercer have hypoallergenic jewelry?
Ask for a 14 or 18 karat gold, titanium, surgical stainless steel or a niobium stud when you’re getting prepped for your new piercing.
5.) Where do get your piercing done?
Don’t know where to go for your first piercing? Google bro! Get the highest rated studios and always cross check where workers are well trained. Regulation requirements and licensing standards may vary from state to state and control your city or state health department to get knowledge on local licensing and regulations.
6.) It’s time to take care of your new baby!
Immediate care is extremely essential and it helps avoid complications. If you got a lip or a tongue piercing make sure you use a mild mouthwash regularly. Well you definitely don’t want to swallow that stud with your food now, do you? So just remove it when you’re eating. It would be wise to keep away from pools, hot tubes, lakes, rivers, and other water bodies. If you’re lucky, your piercing will heal in a few weeks but if have a hint of ‘shani dosh,’ lingering around you, it might take several months or more.
But then it’s worth the wait and it’s definitely worth the pain because that one stud could make you look absolutely stunning and stud-ready for any occasion!
