No To Gun Piercings

It may be less painful than a needle, but it actually causes more harm. Gun piercings are unhygienic since the inner parts of the tool can possibly be unclean. It can also leave trauma to the tissues since it is a blunt force.

Yes To Piercing Needles 

Needles cause less tissue trauma and are hygienic since it is not reusable and should only be opened in front of the piercing client. It also slides between the inner and outer skin and is not a form of blunt force unlike gun piercings.

Piercings may take a lot of time to heal, depending on its kind and how it’s taken care of. It is important to know that it may cause minimal pain whether it’s been done a month ago or more. Make sure to implement your piercer’s advice to make the healing process easier. 

Do Not Do It Yourself

It is not advisable to pierce yourself. Piercing through the skin is not an easy thing to do because we have nerves behind it. Doing it without proper research and practice can cause health issues. Although getting a piercing done by a professional may be pricey, it is safer.

Choose Hypoallergenic Jewelries

Choosing hypoallergenic jewelry for a piercing is essential  because it reduces the risk of allergic reactions, irritation, and infections. Hypoallergenic materials like titanium, surgical stainless steel, and niobium are less likely to cause problems for sensitive skin.

Piercings Are Not Temporary

They may look small and harmless, but they can mark your skin. Piercings can actually leave scars. The scar size may depend on the type of piercing. Hence, it is important to keep in mind that scars take time to heal. Decide thoroughly before getting one. Though scars are not a bad thing since it reminds you of the time that you had courage to take it!
