Keep Your Chin Up and Your Piercing for a Dimple in Place
When it comes to keeping a piercing in place, there is a science to it. That means as long as you follow a few tried and true steps, the piercing should remain where it is supposed to be.

You Didn’t Put It In Properly

So, you cut corners and put the piercing in place all in a huff. The next day, it just ain’t there.
Sometimes, you just got to take your time…so take your time! Be sure the piercing is properly put into place. Rush jobs can mean lost piercings.
You Get Hit Right in the Face

When trouble is brewing, follow the great advice of the Lord Humongous from the Mad Max movies. Just walk away. You’ll save yourself a lot of pain and also a bit of money on a new piercing.
Scratching at or Playing with the Piercing

So do not touch your dimples or your piercings!
Slipping, Tripping, and Falling
Hey, watch where you are going! You might slip, fall, and lose your dimple piercing.
