Body Piercing - General

Body piercing is just what the name implies; a puncture or piercing is made in some part of your body with a needle. Next, a piece of jewelry is inserted into the hole left by the puncture. The most popular pierced body parts are the belly button, nostrils, and ears.

If the person who is performing the piercing provides a professional, clean, and safe environment, this is what you can expect as a result of getting a body part pierced from a reputable body piercing shop:

  • The area you have chosen to be pierced (with the exception of the tongue) is cleaned with a germicidal soap.
  • Next, your skin is punctured with a very clean, sharp needle.
  • After having been sterilized, a piece of jewelry is attached to the area.
  • The person performing the piercing will dispose of the needle inside a special container such that there is no risk of the blood or needle touching anyone else.
  • The pierced area is then cleaned.
  • The person performing the piercing adjusts and checks the inserted jewelry.
  • The person performing the piercing will provide you with instructions on how to be sure your new piercing heals correctly and what to do in case of a problem.

If you are thinking about getting a body part pierced, for something as a belly or nose ring [http://www.achadirect.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=113], first do some research. First of all, if you're under 18, many shops won't allow you to get a piercing without written consent from your parents. It's also a good idea to find out what the risks and how you can best protect yourself from complications such as infections.

Certain body sites can cause more difficulties than others. Infection is a usual complication of nose and mouth piercings because bacteria by the millions live there. Also, over time, tongue piercings can damage teeth. Lip, cheek, and tongue piercings can result in gum problems.

If you have a medical problem such as infections, a condition that affects you immune system, skin diseases or disorders, diabetes, allergies, or if you are pregnant you should ask your doctor if there are any special precautions that you should take prior to getting a piercing. Should you decide to go ahead and get a body part pierced:

  • Make sure your immunizations are up to date (especially tetanus and hepatitis B).
  • Decide ahead of time where you intend to get medical care if your piercing should become infected

Last but not least, if you plan to get your mouth or tongue pierced, make sure your gums and teeth are healthy.
