Benefits of Ear Piercing – Early Ear Piercing Helps Avoid Keloids

A recent study published online reveals that early ear piercing reduces the risk of keloids.  The study http://www.onlinenews.com.pk/details.php?id=162745 says that delaying ear piecing until pre-teen or teen years can aggravate the chances of developing keloids.

Keloids are uncontrolled growth of fibrous tissue after an injury or scar on any area of the body. Keloids can occur on ears, scalp, top of the foot and even the chest, especially after first piercings. The findings of the study based on a survey of 27 females and 5 males showed that people who had their ears pierced at the age of 11 or older were more likely to develop keloids than those who took to ear piercing before that.

Tribal Dream Rings or Circle Rings

Circle Rings

Sometimes called Tribal Dream Rings, these are based on the same idea as the Segment Rings, However they are in much larger gauges, and also have been further improved upon. These Circle Rings will come apart in 2 halves so it is incredibly easy to insert into your piercing. No need to worry if it will fit with the small opening of some Segment Rings. Also each ring is precision drilled so that a tiny side fitting set screw securely locks the two halves together. The screw is set deep into the ring, and with the secure fit, there is no pinching, scratching, or binding, and the screw is not even seen at all. Also this prevents another hassle of losing a ball or a segment at the worst time. These are also made from the same high quality 316LVM Surgical Steel as all of our Steel pieces. These rings are even patented and are protected under patent law, because they are so custom. They are actually cut out of a single block of Surgical Steel, not bent wire.
