Q & A on Body Jewelry and Piercings

June 28th, 2010

?Q.  Where should I go to get my piercing?

?A.  You should ONLY go to a piercing parlor or salon that is fully licensed.  They should use sterile needles and other equipment and you should feel safe and secure during the piercing process.  Generally, reputable piercing locations will have their licenses and certifications on the the wall.  If not, ask to see them.  If you piercer refuses, you should get out of there immediately!

Q.  How much will my body jewelry (and piercing) cost?

A.  This is very dependent on where you live/where on the body you get the piercing.  Most places offer a single price that includes the jewelry and the piercing.  It can ranges from $20 to $100 and you should check with the place of business before you decide to get any new piercings.  There are many places online to buy inexpensive body jewelry.

Q.  How do I can for my new body jewelry?

A.  Your piercer will probably give you a sheet of paper of verbal directions to tell you how to properly care for your new piercing.  A few general rules include:  Don’t even use Neosporin on your piercing, it will trap the germs;  Use warm water and antibacterial soap to clean your piercing a few times per day;  Don’t change the body jewelry until the piercing is fully healed.
