Body piercings set you apart from the typical fashion of how jewelry is worn, even as body jewelry has become quite mainstream. Unlike tattoos, piercings are a less permanent form of adornment, however getting one still takes consideration and commitment. Do not get a piercing if:You are not totally comfortable with any aspect of it.A friend says they know how to pierce and wants to try it on you. Unless they are a legitimate piercing professional, kindly decline.
1. You are not totally comfortable with any aspect of it.
2. A friend says they know how to pierce and wants to try it on you. Unless they are a legitimate piercing professional, kindly decline.
3. Your girlfriend/ boyfriend thinks it’s hot and wants you to. If you’re doing it for someone else, for yourself, let them get pierced!
4. You have issues with the piercer. If you are considering a first piercing, it’s an even bigger deal. Choose your professional wisely, and make sure you are entirely comfortable with them doing what they do.
5. You are not fully aware of the piercing process, or what will happen during piercing aftercare. You can get pierced spur of the moment, but you gotta know what you’re in for during the recovery.
6. It’s just about being trendy. Piercings are part of a culture of doing your own thing; not what everyone else is doing. Even if you’re getting a belly ring, which every gal and her mama has, do it because you want it!
7. You’re underage and want to rebel. Good luck finding a reputable piercer who will do it without parental consent! There are other ways to assert your youthful independence!
8. You aren’t prepared for some pain. You know your particular threshold, so if you don’t think you can take it, reconsider.
9. You are not well versed in anatomy. If you want a piercing in particular spot, and there isn’t enough skin or flesh to pierce, it may not work out.
10. You aren’t willing to take the piercing out should issues like infection or rejection occur. Safety first!
