Changing an Industrial Piercing

There are only a few things that I know about piercings, but some of them that I have experienced myself. Most piercings, it is recommended that you wait at least 3 weeks. Operative phrase is "AT LEAST". The Cartalidge takes on average 9 months to heal, and can take up to a year in a half to fully heal. That will be your indicator that you are safe to change the jewelry. You want the piercing to be fully healed to avoid irritations from Machine Oils, possible irritation from the threads from the new jewelry, or any similar situations. The best suggestion is to talk to the Professional Piercer that did the piercing and see what they recommend, since every shop is different.


Wait until it doesnt hurt at all. You should be able to move it back and forth and apply pressure without it hurting. Usually a few months. I had to wait 7 months.


Usually the recommended healing time with proper care is 1-2 months. Everyone heals different though. If you still feel pain when you move it up and down then changing it will cause irritation and make the healing process a lot longer. Wait until you can play around with it freely without any pain at all. I currently have 3. The first two took about 1 to a month in a half as far the 3rd on goes. I've had it roughly a little over a month and it still hasn't healed completely. Just make sure to take care of it the WA the piercer told you and the healing process shouldn't take took long.



you should wait at least three months. the industrial usually takes three to nine months to heal. don't change it if it still bothers you, like pain wise. if you're still not sure call a piercing place and they'd be happy to change it for you.
