Wait a few days... The last thing you want to do is irritate an open wound in the first hours of it healing. But avoid drinking beer for the duration of the healing period. Consuming beer with an open tongue wound could lead to a oral yeast infection known as Thrush.

They want their ear pierced to prove to girl that they look tough.
If you got your ear lobes pierced keep the same earrings you got them pierced with in for 6 weeks and then take them out and put in any other pair you want except for dangle earrings (you can't wear those for 1 year) and wear those for 6 months to insure that the hole will stay open. If you got...
ya, it's OK. i have five ear piercings and they each itched as they healed. it's a natural reaction... you should be a little worried if they don't itch. so enjoy :)
an infection and do not do this!
Well that would be at the discretion of the professional body piercer providing the service to you, best to talk it over with your piercer of choice and see what they have to say.
darkness ahead is a marvellous story about blind person it is one of the most interesting story i have ever seen
yes only if you are a perfectionist in eyebrow waxing.
It depends on how you can handle pain. i did it myself and it hurt for a few days but that was really it. You dont wanna pull on it or jerk on it. It will just make it hurt worse.
Depends. My Cousin Hailey did mine with a Hollow Needle, and the piercing didn't hurt.. until the morning. I was quite intoxicated at the time. Get a LONG bar because it swells ALOT Get your piercing done by a professional body piercer . Body Piercing is not a hobby or recreational activity,...
Well you need to phone around to local studios in your area, chances are however that it may be illegal in your area. Splitting is considered a surgical procedure and can only be provided by a licensed medical professional (this is a condition set by the college of physicians and surgeons). Practice...
Who told you that? Body piercing is not contraindicated to waxing. Bottom line if the piercing is new then you wouldn't want to be waxing that area once the piercing is done and healing, however once healed there is no issue with waxing around a piercing.
If it is to clean its fine just dont play with it infections are easy to get with an open wound. Wash your hands beforehand.
No piercing is to be self done, the risks of infection and more over infection by MRSA is way too high. Professional body piercers are trained to take the proper measures to ensure you come out of your piercing safely. The reasons you should not attempt to pierce your self should be obvious, but...

Depending on the Size of your lips I would get a Long Tongue Bar 18-16g Because your lips swell up
I have my Tongue pierced too. I noticed the same cut, Was it self done? I have heard your tongue is the fastest healing part of your body so if you take out the jewelry it should heal right up.
Well don't force it just keep cleaning it normally and it will start to move on it's own. Movement can usually be seen by about the 2nd weeks of cleaning, this is an indication that the piercing is healing well.
You can get it at 14, but you HAVE to have some sort of responsible guardian and a form of ID. :)
With your parents written permission, yes ... otherwise, no!
It could get infected. After you take out the ring for it to heal you will have a bump form where it was pierced and it will hurt for like a month. You could also get MRSA and end up in the hospital from your bad idea. Leave professional body piercing to actual professionals, this isn't a game of...
My guess would be you don't have to be skinny. I don't exactly know if that's correct. but my friend got one and she was pretty big, so... i guess not
I dont know what you mean by this question. O_O
If you just recently got it pierced, then it makes sense for it to bleed a little and feel sore. If the piercing is old, it might be irritated. Rinse with salt water to cleanse the area.
These piercings (actually body mods) need to be removed by a health care professional to avoid secondary infection. Legally body piercers are not permitted under law to remove dermal anchors. Go see your Doctor

I've had my belly button pierced and i can honestly say it didnt hurt for that long, obviously its all dependant on the person however, personally id say for 2-3 days it can become sore, try to avoid bending down because it can rub and delay the healing process but also cause discomfort. Make sure...
Since a lip piercing is a surface piercing, definitely make sure you care for it! If the piercing rejects, it's because the body wasn't able to become immune to the object inside the skin. I highly recommend purchasing H2Ocean piercing spray, it's a life saver. H2O spray helps properly care for a...
Shouldn't matter as long as you have an adult with you.
Original answer NO- at least not during his campaign. In fact, he did even make speeches during his campaign. (It used to be thought unseemly for a candidate to campaign for himself. )
Whichever they want. That myth has gotten so mixed up that people believe different things. So it really doesn't matter.
"Male piercing" normally means a piercing in a man's genitals.
Yes. A little bit of puffiness, redness, and soreness is normal. If it swells an incredible amount, turns very red or is EXTREMELY sensitive to touch then it may be infected. In that case I'd suggest to take them out, clean the area thoroughly and apply Neosporin or Bactine. If you don't want to...
Go back and see your piercer and have them put it back in for you.
Well two weeks would be reasonable, the swelling and distention should be settled by then.
The often misunderstood"Keloid". Well here's the skinny on "what it is" and "how it happens". A keloid is a grouping of disorganized skin cells formed in locations of injury where the surface tissue has been damaged or cut. Often referred to as "scar tissue", this tissue because of it's...
Sucking ice will help with the swelling, but runs very short on flavor and nutrition. You will not want to chew much as your swollen tongue will be very prone to you biting it accidentally as well as trying to avoid pressure on the new piercing itself. Clear broth and soups are good starters. I...
I would ask your piercer, but if it were me I would wait a littlebit.
Well that's up to you there is no right side left side meaning to stretching ear lobes other than just doing one would look weird.

You shouldn't, acrylic can have fissures and cracks that can harbour bacteria. Only proper surgical stainless steel or surgical titanium or Niobium should be used or a Bioplast or PTFE based material that can be autoclaved. Acrylics can not be autoclaved without damaging them.
Yes it does and who would want that! That sounds so grouse
Yes you can get it repierced but you need to read the info below to understand why the bump formed in the first place. Once you know that you will know what to do to avoid it happening again. The often misunderstood"Keloid". Well here's the skinny on "what it is" and "how it happens". A keloid...
Unless it's your parent or legal guardian (this requires documented proof of guardianship as assigned by the courts) there is little chance the studio will accept a non parental signature for piercing services. Keep in mind they can loose there license if they provide a service to a minor without...
The tongue doesn't form Keloids, the bumps on your tongue are possibly due to mismatched metals in the barbell. This is called galvanic corrosion and will cause the tongue to react by forming lumps by the piercing. Purchase a good quality barbell from a professional body piercing studio and replace...

puss is a sign of infection
Like any piercing, if you take care of the piercing daily and clean it as required, then there is no issue.
Its largely just Aesthetics, people think they look sexy. Some are done to increase sexual arousal or pleasure, like say a Prince Albert or a nipple piercing. some are done to increase arousal for their partner, for example, tongue piercings. Really each piercing is done for a different reason...
I need to tell you this so you understand that jewellery stores are not licensed nor are they inspected to provide any form of piercing service, just because they have a piercing gun doesn't make them qualified to provide piercing services to any one.

in peircings there isn't an age limit with the cost (unlike hairdressing for instance). i have my belly done, and it cost me $70, but the bigger the city, the less it costs. usually the price for a belly button peircing is around $50
Yes. The severity of the pain varies and depends on your pain tolerance.
The barbell used is scaled to the tongue being pierced to ensure there is room for swelling and discharge. The professional body piercer will ensure that the right size bar is used and every tongue is different, there is no specific size (only a ball park guess nothing more). To find out how long...
Despite what most people say, you indeed can leave your navel in while pregnant! You need to buy a navel retainer, usually made of a hard rubber for pregnancy piercing jewelry, but almost any type of retainer will do.
Cartilage piercings can remain sore and tender for up to 2 weeks. They take longer to heal than other piercings; the healing time for cartilage piercings is slow. For any swelling and/or discomfort, you can take some Ibuprofen; make sure you follow the directions on the bottle. I got mine done...
Do you want it to hurt? No you don't so that in mind be it a navel piercing or a labret piercing or an eyebrow piercing, all of these in the hands of an experienced professional body piercer are simple and almost painless. I won't say they won't hurt for a moment, let's be realistic here for a...

Surface piercings are really tricky. I'd suggest unscrewing the ends to the surface bar, spraying the piercing with H2Ocean, and cleaning off the dried skin with a q-tip :) I've had 5 surface piercings, and I've found this to be the most effective way to clean them. But make sure you clean them...
it depends on what kind of ear piercings you'll be doing. if you'll be working at like...a wal-mart, claire's or something like that, they'll ususally give you some sort of training in-store with the piercing gun (which is really not good for piercing AT ALL). but if you'll be using hollow...
Where does piercing come from? Is it a history thing
If you want to be respected in the industry by your peers and those in positions of legislation and regulatory power it's a good idea to have completed at least high school and have some back round in the sciences. You need to know how to do good research and understand the meaning of a lot of...
Well you do one of two things, one go to your local professional body piercer and have him/her put it back in using and insertion taper or carefully try to reinsert the jewellery yourself. Ultimately if you don't have luck doing it yourself, get in to a piercing studio and have them do it for you ...
Well considering you should be doing the stretching correctly there should be no pain involved in stepping up one gauge at a time.
No there isn't, contrary to what you may read, don't get sucked in by others who want to see you get hurt. They will say they did there own piercing with a sewing needle and didn't have any troubles. Well now think that was sheer luck that they didn't contract MRSA or any other of numerous viruses...
Piercing is considered and elective procedure and with any procedure that is invasive* (*cutting into the body) there are risks and complications that need to be acknowledged. Minors may not always focus on the risk factors and therefore they are not competent under the eyes of the law when it comes...
It doesn't hurt when you get it pierced but it does after. It feels sore when you touch around the area where you got it pierced. It should go away in about a month, but just make sure you don't sleep on the side your piercing is on. That can make it hurt more. Make sure you clean it 2 times a day...
ye, but it can be quite painfull
Yes, Adam has his ear's pierced. He has two pierces on each ear. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- He has three piercings on his left ear (I saw a vid) - cartilage piercing and two normal ones. Two on right ear. Two of his ear...
In most places people over 18 do not need parents' consent. The question is, when are people old enough to make responsible decisions about their bodies? Perhaps it is earlier than 21 or 18. If a parent is legally responsible for their children until they are the age of 18, then it is in a...
Yes... But not recommended until after it's healed.
Generally these bumps are courtesy of the facial cleaning products and over use of aftercare solutions. Often mislabeled as "Keloids", they are in fact "Hypertrophic Reactions". A "Hypertrophic Reaction" is a reaction to an "irritant" that has become trapped in the piercing and caused the body to...
In upstate New York, the price range for lip piercings was 40$ - 60$.
Well HIV, Hepatitis A, B & C as well as Meningitis can be contracted by mixing of body fluids. If the piercing is not quite healed there is a potential for cross contamination and infection. You won't get pregnant but you do run a chance of developing and infection in an unhealed piercing. Wash the...
A Tragus piercing, being a deep cartilage piercing should be left in for a period of 3~9 months to allow the piercing to properly season and toughen. As with any piercing they are never considered fully healed until they are a full year old. So the longer you can leave it alone without changing the...

I'm guessing someone pure pressured her into doing things she didn't want to do. Like bingg frickin' drugaholic or something. I'm also thinking she had less self esteem or something too. You know what drugs do to your body, once you start its hard to stop. Someone made her do this! Until she got...
