Piercings and tattoos are THE fad and they really go hand-in-hand. A trendy piercing looks even more so if accompanied with a tattoo. These are trends which have been around for centuries and are still as hot as they were when they first came about. Piercings and tattoos complete your look and complement each other.
In earlier times, tattoos and piercings were a mark of royalty and set the royal few apart from the common others. Today, tattoos and body piercings set the daring and cool few apart from the others. Not much has changed, except that tattoos have become permanent and body piercings are now adorned with much more attractive piercing jewelery.
You should choose your body piercing jewelery very carefully, even after the piercing has healed. While 14k Gold, Titanium and Platinum are considered the safest and best options, they sometimes prove to be expensive. This is where implant grade stainless steel comes in. Although 316L Stainless Steel is ok for body piercings, 316LVM Surgical Stainless Steel meets the standards for ‘implant grade’ that has been approved by the American Society of Testing and Materials. This jewelery is reasonable priced and there is no reason to settle for just 316L.
Silver is generally not a good choice at all, but if you aren’t allergic it will be fine for a charm section. Avoid it in the mouth or genital area where the skin is moist, or inserting it into a piercing. It is only suitable for a decoration on the pierce. Titanium is also good for piercing jewelery. It is not only used for piercing jewelery but also for surgical implants in the body. Titanium is actually one of your best options.
The world of tatoos
Now that we know about body piercing and piercing jewelery, lets take a look at tattoos. They go well with piercings and add to their effect. Tattoos and body piercings go hand-in-hand and help increase the beauty and effect of the other.
Tattoos are permanent or semi-permanent designs on the body. Essentially an expressive art, tattoos can be symbols, pictures or writings, the options are limitless. Tattoos are something that accentuate the body and are known to add glamor to those who sport them. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification.
While tattoos can be a temporary affair, some people fall in love with them and just have to get a permanent tattoo. Getting a tattoo is the hottest thing around the block, but before you take the leap, think this through. It is something that will be there with you all your life. So ponder over the decision for a while, find out all you can about tattoos and if you still want to get one, go right ahead and turn heads!
Don’t leave out the piercing though. After all, the look has to be complete!
