If You Are Going To Let Your Child Get A Body Piercing At Least Cut The Cost

Aug 17, 2007
The body piercing craze is happening all over the country, and kids, adults, and even their pets are getting into it. Having a pierced body part is a status symbol for some, the fashion of the day for others, and just plain fun for the rest of us. People have been piercing their bodies for thousands of years in fact. However, it is important to keep in mind certain important factors before allowing your child to take part in the new American pastime.

Your first concern for your child should be safety, so understand that there will be some time and expense spent teaching him or her how to take proper care of a pierced ear, or a pierced anything else. Show them proper skin care, how to cleanse the pierced area, and also what to do if an accident occurs or if infection sets in. Do these things and you can avoid a costly trip with your kid to the medical clinic.

Also, remember that your child is at a tender age. Feelings can be hurt just as much as the body piercing itself, so if you decide to let your baby get pierced, be supportive of it, but also remain aware and alert of any problems, social or physical, that may arise out of the situation. Wearing nice jewelry is supposed to boost one's self esteem, not lower it.

Keep in mind also, that many schools do not allow children to wear elaborate body jewelry at all, even earrings, so perhaps it would be best to instruct your kid to wait until he or she gets home from school before putting on the glitz.

Now that we have covered those basic points, we can discuss what type of jewelry to buy, and just because you are purchasing jewelry for your child doesn't mean that you can go cheap. Inexpensive jewelry, because of the low quality of the alloy, can quickly deteriorate and cause irritation on the skin, thus leading to infection. Frankly, you have survived the idea that your baby wants to get pierced, so now you need to get into the notion that it may cost a pretty penny. If you can find a wholesale body jewelry store in your area you are likely to be able to save tons of money. You might also want to look online for wholesalers.

There are several ways to find good quality jewelry at a fair price. Look for wholesalers on the Internet and investigate them carefully. Once you find a vendor, make sure that you do not have to buy in bulk in order to get a discount. With luck, you will be able to find several nice pieces for your son or daughter, without stretching your bank account to its limit. Remember, the better the quality, the more expensive it will be, but also it will lessen the chance that your child will get hurt.
