Shocking FACTS About Wearing Cheap Jewelry Containing Nickel *BEWARE*

Shocking FACTS About Wearing Cheap Jewelry Containing Nickel *BEWARE* - Lulu Ave
 Ever wondered what cheap jewelry can do to your ear? Well today we're going to tell you some shocking facts.

What does nickel do to your body?

If you have a nickel allergy you might experience rashes/bumps on the skin, itching, redness/change in skin color, dry patchy skin like burn, or blisters/draining fluids in many severe cases. All the things stated above are what nickel can do to your body because it is low quality. 

Why piercing studios don't use nickel for initial piercings?

As stated above studios can not use low quality metals in initial piercings. The health department also does not allow studios to pierce with low quality jewelry. Studios are only allowed to pierce with surgical steel and higher quality jewelry.

Types of metals you can use if you're sensitive

You can use gold (yellow or white) initial piercings if it is 14k/18k. Gold higher than 18k is too soft for body jewelry because it can easily be scratched or nicked. Another metal you can use would be titanium. Titanium is recommended because it contains no nickel and there’s very few  known incidents of allergic reactions. Titanium is also one of the lightest but strongest metals.

For any 14k gold or titanium jewelry feel free to browse
