Body PiercingOver decades body piercing was normally limited to the ear. So not the case in today’s society. Body piercing has become a way of life for some people. The current trend in body piercing now sees rings, studs and bars inserted in upper ears, eyebrows, neck, lips, tongue, nipples, navel and even the genitals. What’s that all about I ask myself. Oh well, each to their own.

Keeping up with what is trending and body piercing is in fashion and the process of having one is not carried out by a professional is a dangerous move. The Hidden danger behind piercings is if unhygienic instruments are used. Make sure the salon you have opted for to do your piercing sterilises all utensils and to use new needles. If you don’t see the needle removed from new packaging then do the sensible thing and leave the salon or studio. Why must you leave you may well ask? Well if whoever was to carry out the process with an already used needle, then what’s to say what’s coming next.

Stay safe and demand a new needle is used.

Reduce any health risks by asking the staff members in the studio or salon if they use a sterilising unit? Sterilisation kills germs and viruses on equipment. If the tools are not scrupulously clean then they may carry disease or blood borne viruses such as Hep C and HIV/AIDS, which needless to say we know can be fatal.

Make sure what is used to penetrate your skin is in sealed bags before use, and opened in front of you. Again needles soaking in liquid should not be used either as this will not remove foreign bodies. Needles should come in their own packaging and be opened in front of you. By doing this you ensure a safe body piercing experience.

Note: Not all ornate jewellery are suitable for piercings.

Before procedure starts ask the piercer how long he or she has been doing their job. Ask for proof of qualifications if need be to put your mind at rest.

Before making an appointment browse magazines for tattoo designs and piercings to get a rough idea which spot is perfect to be inked or pierced. A poorly performed piercing can have serious consequences. Be sure this is what you want and never make a decision to have a tattoo or other while under the influence of alcohol.

Although popular areas for piercing such like the tongue, cheek and lips they are dangerous parts of the human body to be messed about with needles. Complications from a badly done job can include infection which some symptoms are a speech impediment, breathing problems, increased tooth decay and broken teeth.

Some people find these after affects hard to believe, but believe it because they can and have happened to others. Infection can result in blood poisoning, toxic shock syndrome, blocked airway as well as the risk of disease like HIV and Hepatitis which was mentioned earlier.

Remember any aftermath from a poorly done piercing or tattoo will include medical intervention from a doctor―something the tattooist or piercer cannot do.

Pierced earlobes have been around for centuries. It is common among the inhabitants of the rain forest.

When a piercing is performed on the upper ear it means that the stud passes through the cartilage which gives the ear its structure. An infected cartilage can cause ‘cauliflower’ ear.

Nose piercings are painful. Choose nasal jewellery carefully to avoid bits that could be inhaled.

Nipples are very sensitive so be aware of this if to be pierced.

Piercing the genitals should be given great thought. Genital parts regularly pierced are the penis, labia, clitoris, foreskin or scrotum. Aside from the piercer talk to your doctor first to see if these body parts are safe for you to have needles stuck into them. If not then it’s back to the doctor for other needles, and likely the ones needed to save your life.
