Hi guys. I'm not a professional piercer, (obviously..) but I know how to take care of them, and where to actually get them, the healing processes, hygiene when getting them done, etc.

Getting a piercing.
Getting a piercing is a decision that you make. Not your friends. You decide whether you really want it. Of course, that doesn't mean you disobey your parents. If you're over the age of 18, then great, do whatever you like. But not now. Make sure you always have parental consent getting a piercing.

Where do I get it done?
Never do it at home, in an unsterile environment. Go to a reputable shop. You get what you pay for, (usually)! Avoid Claire's. They usually do these things with a gun, which isn't recommended, and their staff don't usually get much training. Go somewhere where the piercer wears gloves, has a clean surface and area, uses a needle, (to avoid tearing of cartilage) and has a good reputation.

Hygiene.
Hygiene is VERY important when getting a piercing. Do NOT touch it for at least 24 hours, as you can spread bacteria and infection. You can use a number of different methods to keep it clean, from salt soaks to saline solution. For some piercings, you can just use warm water and unscented soap. You can actually overclean a piercing, so just limit your hygiene routine to once a day. 


Healing.
Healing is essential. Different piercings heal differently. Itching is normal, as there is new skin forming there. Sometimes, lymph can form. Lymph is a gross yellow liquid that forms as the healing process goes by. Wipe it away with a cotton swab every day, to prevent crusting. But DO NOT force the crust away. To remove the crust, soak a face cloth or towel in saline solution and just rub very gently. Don't remove the crust with your fingers.

Caring for piercings.
When getting a piercing, keep away from swimming pools, the sea, baths, and other large amounts of water. These places carry bacteria. If you really need to take a bath, clean it first. Also, be careful. Keep your bedding clean, too. It always helps the healing process. Don't force in jewelry, either. It can tear or damage it, and also, make sure to use quality, safe jewelry.


Any questions? Feel free to ask.

Hey, thanks Cathy, I'll remember those if I ever get piercing done (which will probably be a big NO from my mom, but great tips, anyway Grin)
