Potential (Avoidable) Problems Involved in Body Piercing

Body piercing has many takers and why not? It’s about being yourself, after all! However, sometimes even the greatest of things come with a few not-so-great risks and in body piercing these are a few (avoidable) problems.

When a piercing goes wrong it’s the pierced area that gets effected the most – sometimes serious and other times curable. That’s why it is mandatory to get body piercing done from a certified professional with great piercing skills and even a more hygienic piercing studio and tools.

Let’s take a look into what problems there can be and how you can avoid them.

Infections – Generally happens when the piercing is fresh and susceptible to bacterial and fungal invasions. Swelling, redness may result as the body fights them off. A discharge of puss is also common. A good clean up after piercing and compresses can help to prevent infection.

Metal Hypersensitivity – It’s nickel that causes it. Many people are allergic to nickel and hence the body rejects body jewelry with nickel in it, causing an allergic reaction. Go for nickel free body jewelry always or hypoallergenic metals.

Migration – Yes a piercing can move to another place. The piercing can travel through the skin and position in a different location other than the original. This is usually a result of improper piercing or a body’s reaction to body jewelry.

Scarring – The pierced area may appear scarred and different from the surrounding tissue. Scars become prominent when the piercing is removed.

Others could be skin abscesses, boils etc. Body piercing isn’t just problems but since there’s piercing, needle and skin involved you can’t really get out of it the way you went in. And if you ask those with piercings they will tell you how the passion and plenty of reasons-to-get-pierced easily outnumber these problems. Moreover, these can be easily avoided by being a little more aware and following healthy practices.

So don’t let these put you off, remember it’s about who you are and not what can go wrong.
