Caring for Your Body Piercing and Jewelry

Dec 5, 2007
There is probably nothing in the jewelry market today that is a better seller than all types of body jewelry. The craze of piercing almost anything and everything has exploded over the past two decades. Multiple ear piercing, nostrils and septum, eyebrows, lips, naval, and a few more delicate places we will leave unmentioned.

The world has gone piercing crazy. Older women are doing there ears several times and their naval, older men are loosening up in our culture and are finally getting an earlobe done. What is really wild is the younger set. They are really having a field day with it all. It is no longer unusual to see them with multiple face piercing.

With all this piercing going on in cultures where it has never been that common before, there are bound to be some hard lessons learned about the safety and sanitary practices required for having these holes put in odd places on your body. Piercing the earlobe has long been a common thing among women of our culture and was relatively easy to care for and heal in a short period of time.

Other piercing are not so simple. Areas where there is cartilage pierced can takes months and longer to heal and are often extremely sensitive to the touch. This will happen especially if you try to change your jewelry too soon and do not keep the area cleaned regularly. The type of metal your jewelry is made of is also important during this healing time.

Professionals recommend jewelry made from non-toxic metals such surgical steel, 14k or18k yellow gold, 18k palladium white gold, or titanium These metals help limit the risk of infection and allergic reactions, which can be quite common. Mouth piercing has other risk including damage to your gums and teeth. The mouth always has bacteria present and these piercing are not really recommended by dentist.

There is so much jewelry out there to choose from today and so many new places to wear it. Just remember that with new piercing it is the smart thing to do and wait the recommended amount of time before trying to change your original piece. It is hard to put off trying on new and different style pieces, but you will be glad you did in the long run. Those dazzling new jewelry items will not look nearly as good if the skin around it is all red and swollen!
