Body piercing is a form of body modification that refers to the act of puncturing or cutting a part of the human body, creating an opening in which jewelery may be worn. Body piercing also refers to the opening in the body that is created by the piercing or cutting.
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.
Your ear lobe has been pierced by a professional body piercer and pierced using an implantation steel captive bead ring or implantation steel stud of the highest quality available. The rest of the healing process is up to you. Following this simple guide should enable you to have a great piercing...
In the Untited States 3 out of every 4 girls, 15 years or older have their belly buttons pierced. The MUNCEC says its about 60% and still groing and that was only in Alabama.
Belly Button piercings can be serious, however healing can besimple. DO NOT put rubbing Alcohol on it to heal, for that makes itdry stiff in parts. Wash your hands, get a cotton swab dipped incleaning solution and gently wash it round your belly button. Trythis and see how it goes. If it does not...
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!
darkness ahead is a marvellous story about blind person it is one of the most interesting story i have ever seen
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.
No, it is not possible. you would just require a smaller barbell than the average human.
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 piercerBody Piercing is not a hobby or recreational activity, it is a...
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 for...
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 little  bit.
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...
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.
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 about...
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
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

  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.
  In upstate New York, the price range for lip piercings was 40$ - 60$.
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...

About 1 or 2 days , depending how deep it is into your skin
The reasons you should not attempt to pierce your self should be obvious, but for those who think it's a "DIY" project, here's some food for thought. Infection and contraction of MRSA, HIV, Meningitis, Hepatitis and Tetanus are all very serious health issues, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant...
, I'm 14 years old and I've had my belly done for about 2 months now , it doesn't really hurt. It hurt more getting your tongue pierced but it hurts more than having your ears pierced.Its really just a sharp pain for like 2 quick minutes and then its fine. Depending on how you really feel about...
As you progress in your piercings from the lobe up the ear I would recommend getting the second and consecutive holes done by needle piercing in the hands of a professional body piercer. See inside the lobe moving up the ear there is a fine feather line of cartilage which gets thicker and denser as...

Navel piercing that are a year old are considered "seasoned" and can go without jewellery for any where from a day to several days. Removing the jewellery from an "unseasoned" piercing can lead to loss of the piercing and undue trauma to the newly forming tissue that makes up the piercing.
I am eleven years old right now, and I got mine done when I was eight...So if that is what she really wants let her do it. But first let her now all the risks and cautions.
Swelling can be minimized by using crushed ice as often as possible on the tongue and allow it to melt. Chamomile tea, make up a pot add sugar to taste and then pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it. Use these when the swelling is worst, first thing in the morning. Chamomile is a natural anti...

People do not pierce teeth, there are adhesive gems that stick on to the tooth, but piercing the actual tooth doesn't happen. Piercing your tooth is impossible because it would crack in half, and yes that would be very painful.
No there are no piercing studios licensed to provide that service in the mall. See the related links below.
Go see a professional body piercer.
on a scale of 1 to 10 its about a 3. A good piercer will get it over with quickly. Keep it clean though, they infect easily.It really depends on the person, but it is not numbed before it is done. Mine didn't hurt to get pierced, but the healing part hurt.
While anything life threatening is very rare in such cases there is a possibility that if it became infected the infection could spread and could eventually cause other health problems which can lead to death. Though the risk of this is so small its not something to fear.Most tongue piercing clients...
Nickle Contact Dermatitis. This is the bodies ability to liberate the nickle salts from cheap plated jewellery, this causes the nickle salts to be deposited on the tissue and becomes an irritant. This irritation can cause itching, discharge of clear fluid and bleeding, left long enough this will...
Properly provided professional lip piercings that are looked after and cared for properly should provide a light heal in about 4 ~ 6 weeks, however no piercing is fully *healed ( *we often call this being "Seasoned" ) until it's a full year old.

Piercing prices are based on technical difficulty and materials used to provide the service, they can range from $ 45.00 all the way up to $ 150.00 + depending on what you are after, so you basically need to be more specific as to what piercing you want and where, if you need prices phone the...
Yes until the tissue shrinks closed on it's own.
  Yes, it is illegal and risky in most places in the States to get pierced if there is no license.
Phone the local piercing studios and ask what the age limit is, every city has various age limits so the only way to find out is to phone and ask.
Prices can very greatly from town to town and studio to studio. The only way to know what is reasonable is to phone a few of your local studios and ask what they charge and what is included in the pricing.
Well a professional body piercer won't let you hold and ice cube next to your nose during a piercing. The piercing process is quick and next to painless, if you want it done , get it done forget about the pain "you think you will feel". It's too simple.
No they just do it, there is no need for numbing agents. You just make up your mind to get it done and go from there.
Right side left side gay? Well in professional body piercing what side you pierce your nose on has no bearing on your sexual orientation, it's what side looks better for the nose being pierced. The same applies to ear piercing now, both sides one side, both sides multiple times means nothing other...
Well that depends on the piercing you want, every township has various age limits for piercing. So your best bet is to ring up the studios in your area and ask what the age limit is for your area.
No you can not pierce a Monroe with a gun, and if some joker tells you they can, they seriously need to have there head examined. Piercing guns are for ear lobes only, this is a health regulation that applies to almost everywhere in North America.
Hardly. You are free to do what you like to your own body. Unless there is a specific mention in the bible, and I can't think of one, about belly piercing, the bible has nothing to do with it. Also, don't let anyone tell you that a certain passage in the bible really means something else according...
Sure why not? Consider this you get a chance to get a nice piercing, check out the shop and have a little fun while you are there. You can be sure the piercing will be done right, meet some really cool people and well just have a good time with folks who like piercing as much as you do. To me it's a...
Every piercing feels different on every location of the body, it's a very individual sensation, some say a piercing is painful and others say there is nothing to it. So you won't really know till you get it done yourself.
Well you bleed a lot until the site clots or you bleed out (that could take several hours depending on the vein). Body Piercing is not a hobby or recreational activity, it is a serious procedure that if done incorrectly can cause lasting long term damage to the body. Body Piercing is a service...
