Avoiding Common Mistakes with New Piercings

Piercing Guns: โŒ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ”ซ
  • Avoid piercing guns at all costs. They use earrings to forcibly push through the skin, causing blunt force trauma and a host of complications such as swelling, bumps, and scarring. Instead, opt for a needle piercing from a professional piercing artist.

Improper cleaning solutions: โš ๏ธ

  • It's important to use proper cleaning solutions on your new piercing to avoid irritation and infection. Saline solution is a gentle option for sensitive skin, while antimicrobial soap is a more thorough choice. Avoid using creams, lotions, or harsh products like hydrogen peroxide.

Improper jewelry sizing:

  • Wearing the wrong size jewelry can cause complications with your new piercing. Make sure to size up by at least one or two sizes to allow for swelling. If the jewelry is too small, it can absorb into the skin or grow over the earring, leading to damage and irritation.

Skipping aftercare: ๐Ÿซงโ›”๏ธ

  • Proper aftercare is essential for a healthy piercing. Follow the instructions provided by your piercing artist and be consistent with cleaning and drying the area. Don't touch the piercing unnecessarily and avoid exposing it to dirt or bacteria.

Tugging or playing with the piercing:

  • It's natural to want to touch or play with your new piercing, but resist the temptation. Tugging or fiddling with the jewelry can cause damage to the piercing and increase the risk of infection. Leave it alone and let it heal properly.

In conclusion, it's important to be mindful of these five things when you have a new piercing. By avoiding piercing guns, using the right cleaning solutions, properly sizing your jewelry, following aftercare instructions, and avoiding unnecessary manipulation, you can help ensure a healthy and successful piercing experience.
