Even though a piercing is often quick and relatively easy thing to do, safety should ALWAYS be key. Inserting sharp metal into the skin is still invading the body and should not be taken lightly as “just a quick piercing.” Infections are always possible, especially on body parts less prone to piercings like the tongue, chin, eyebrow and nape. Infections can and usually go away on their own, but without proper care you risk suffering more serious complications. Before you deciding on a piercing shop, ask about their safe piercing practices.
It’s important to take care of new belly button piercings
to lessen not only your chance of infection, but also the risk of it closing or other complications. Piercings in different parts of the body will heal differently so it’s important to know how to take care of it and how long you’ll need to wait before changing your jewelry. Does the piercer offer this important information clearly? Do they suggest you call or come back if you are having problems? It’s important to be able to communicate with your piercer while your piercing heals.
Knowledge is power. Ask friends, acquaintances, co-workers, anyone you know and trust that has a piercing for any recommendations. Ask if there are places you should avoid in your area. If you don’t know anyone that can suggest a good piercing shop, visit the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) website, which has a list of piercers who comply with the standards of their organization. There are some piercers claim to be a member of the APP when they actually are not, so the APP website also includes a helpful page of “Imposters” to help you recognize the piercing shops you should NOT visit.
Finally, it’s also important to education yourself on the type of piercing you want. What are the possible complications? What size gauge is used? How long does it generally take to heal? When will you be able to change your piercing? Walking into a piercing shop with some general knowledge about piercings and processes will make it seem less scary, and a true professional piercer will appreciate working with someone who has done their homework.
