The Numbing Sensation – Is Anesthesia Really Necessary for Piercings?

We all love body piercings and decorating them with innovative and trendy jewelry, but what stops most of us from actually going ahead and getting our tongue, navel, eyebrow or nose pierced is the fear of pain. Frowning parents and troubles at work can be handled but the pain factor seems to scare most of us. There is a solution anesthesia. While most piercers don’t use it and advise customers to get a piercing without any numbing, most piercees would be much more comfortable if there was anesthesia around.

So how important is anesthesia? Do we really need to numb an area before piercing? Most of the piercers, especially those who are very strict about their profession (and should probably be the ones to go to) will refuse to work with you when you are under the influence of anesthesia. So, this poses a problem for all of us who bank on numbing sprays/shots to reduce/eliminate the pain but sadly, this is the deal. Continue reading

5 Sure Sings that Your Piercing is Infected and the Precautions You Can Take

What can ruin a perfectly good and hot looking piercing? Infections! Once infected, piercings hurt, bleed, ooze and, in short, don’t look pretty. Body piercings are the in thing and we all must get them, but with every good thing comes a bunch of responsibility. When you decide to get a piercing, especially in uncommon places like navel, eyebrow, genital, etc., the before and aftercare is very essential so that your piercing does not turn into a painful experience.

Here are some signs to tell that your piercing is infected:

Body Piercing Migration or Rejection

If you have body piercings I am sure that you have heard about “piercing migration” or “piercing rejection”. What is it? Piercing migration is when your body keeps pushing out the body jewelry that you have inserted into your body piercing. It will keep pushing it closer and closer to the surface of your skin. The reason is because your body feels that it is a foreign object like a splinter and it wants it out. This can be because of the gauge of the jewelry, or because of an allergy to the metal, or most commonly from using poor quality body jewelry. Sometimes your body is just very picky, and there is not much you can do. If gone unnoticed your body will reject the jewelry by pushing it totally out of your body causing scarring that will remain noticeable. Continue reading
