It has become a common fashion trend to see men and women sporting an edgy outfit and wearing their numerous piercings and proudly showing it off to show their individuality. While it is indeed another channel for expressing one’s creativity, it is more beneficial if you consider thinking about your options and giving it time to learn about the consequences and risks to avoid having regrets in the end. If the purpose is to show your unique sense of style and flair, you need to make yourself aware of how you must prepare yourself for a collar bone piercing procedure. Below is an informative guide about surface piercings, how the actual piercing is done and the aftercare instructions on how to keep it clean and free from infection! How Safe Is a Collar Bone Piercing Procedure? Before any surface piercing is done in any part of your body, especially in the collar bone area, it is imperative that you seek a consultation and interview a certified body piercing professional with an established name in the industry. The procedure is actually expensive because only the knowledgeable and experienced are allowed to perform it. Do not entrust your safety and health with an amateur because it is a skill that is not learned overnight and offered cheap. Do not trust anyone who will offer their service at a lower price than that of a trusted professional because there is also a great chance that your health and safety is at risk. Ask thoroughly how many clients he/she has had and about the techniques they use to guarantee your safety before the piercing session begin. The critical part of the procedure is how they will insert the jewelry (a small barbell shaped titanium #23 grade surgical steel) into the chosen location and to keep it secure, placed at the right angle and stay on the skin without any fear of having any complications from its delicate entry and exit points. This is the major difference why only an experienced professional is permitted to do it.

What Everybody Ought to Know About Belly Bars

As navel piercings get more common, you find a variety of stylish colorful belly bars available at both online and offline stores. They look trendy and fashionable, and can make a woman feel great about flaunting her flat tummy. And because they come in such a massive range of styles, colors, and materials, everyone can find that perfect piece of jewelry that best expresses their personality. But wait, stylish as they may be, belly piercings are not 100% risk free. While you may have taken care to choose a good piercing shop to get the piercing done (probably even a trained doctor to pierce your belly), the risk for infection is still high. That’s why it becomes even more important to choose the right design in belly bars. They shouldn’t just be stylish; they also need to be comfortable enough to be worn 24/7, and be just the right size, or the waistband of your jeans can constantly rub against the bar and irritate the skin to cause a serious infection. Accentuate your Flat Tummy with Belly Bars Some call belly bars the ‘Ultimate Jewelry’ to accentuate your navel piercing; they certainly are far more popular that navel rings. But how exactly does one go about choosing the right design and material? And what are the risks involved if you don’t make this decision all too carefully? Let’s find out! A belly bar is shaped like a barbell; the stud or stone will sit comfortably in the belly button, and other end will come out through another piercing done either above or below the belly button. These come in a range of shapes and materials, and choosing the right one for you will depend a lot on your taste, needs and style statement. Materials used to make belly bars: A lot of materials are used to make stylish belly bars. Metals, acrylics and plastics are all common. However, the important thing to keep in mind is how your skin reacts to a particular material. Some women are allergic to metals, while others find acrylic belly bars irritate their skin. Keep in mind your body’s ‘Biocompatibility’ when you choose belly jewelry. How to do that? Think carefully if your ear piercings and nose piercing is allergic to some material. Maybe you found that your piercings get infected if you wear anything apart from silver or gold for too long? That means your body isn’t biocompatible with any other material for prolonged wear. While it is easy to change your earrings often so that you can even wear trendy designs in materials that aren’t exactly biocompatible with your body for just...

Nose Ring Buying Guide

Nose rings are seen as a fashion statement that have been popularized by silver screen icons and rock stars. These rings are gaining a lot of popularity in recent times and have become an acceptable form of body jewelry. It is no longer a piercing only appropriate for rebellious punk rockers. With its increasing popularity, nose piercings have indeed expanded beyond the realm of orthodox nostril piercings. Earlier, the rings were only adopted by a small minority, but now everything has changed. Wearing nose rings has spread into every corner of society and it is becoming more socially acceptable with the passage of time. Why Should You Wear a Nose Ring? Nose rings are now socially acceptable and becoming more mainstream with each passing day. Nose rings can definitely add to your beauty, as opposed to the grungy expression defined during the punk era. Large numbers of people in public are sporting them, and the target audience has increased three times in recent years. They are especially popular with women now. It is an inexpensive, easy, and fun way to express yourself in front of others. Caring For Your New Nose Ring You should take proper care of your new nose ring once the piercing is done. While the initial piercing causes some pain, the real challenge comes afterwards. You should know that improperly cared for nose piercings can bring a high risk of infection and can have serious complications. That is why it is important that you take proper care of your new nose ring. Some important tips on how to do so are discussed below: 1. Once the piercing is done, avoid touching the affected area and allow the hole to heal as quickly as possible. Excess touching will make it sore, postpone the healing process, and cause an undue amount of skin and tissue irritation. 2. You should never take out the ring until the piercing has healed completely. If you remove the ring after a short period of time, the hole will close permanently. You should get into the habit of sleeping on your back to avoid the ring getting caught in the pillow. 3. You should be extremely careful when you are drying your face with a towel. Keep the ring clean and wash the pierced area with a special soap designed for this purpose. Don’t rub it with alcohol because it will cause skin irritation.
