Getting a piercing:

As the piercing process creates a wound, there is a risk of contracting diseases transmitted through blood, such as hepatitis B and C. Therefore, ensure that the piercer works hygienically.

A hygienic approach is also important to prevent your new piercing from getting infected.

Make sure that:
• the skin is cleaned and disinfected before piercing;
• the needle and piercing are sterile and not touched with bare hands;
• the piercer wears gloves during the piercing process.

Getting a piercing can cause some pain.

Consult your doctor if you want anesthesia. Aftercare A new piercing is comparable to a deep wound. Poor care and unhygienic treatment can cause wound infections and scar tissue. With proper care, it takes 4 to 12 weeks for the wound to heal. The piercer provides oral and written explanations about piercing aftercare. Read this carefully. In some people, scar tissue may form after getting a piercing.
