ALTERNATIVE NATURE:THE DANGERS OF HOME PIERCING

Body piercing is hot and has  been gaining almost as much fanfare as tattoos over the last few years. In fact,  many people have either considered getting a piercing done in the comfort of their own home, or have seen someone else do it.  It’s a growing trend, and though statistics say that a third of all piercings are done at home, a more important stat to remember  is that half of these require medical attention.

 The risk of infection is much higher for a homemade piercing  than those done by a professional, and unless you have the required equipment and take all the necessary precautions to minimize the risks, it’s best to look in the yellow pages for your dream piercing.  A pro will have the needle sterilized,  know the proper gauge of the needle to be used, and will wear perfectly sterile gloves during the procedure.  A botched piercing made by an amateur carries very real risks, and even though a professionally done piercing can also get infected if not looked after correctly, the risk of getting an infected cavity is tens of times greater when done in a home setting. Also, the possibility of getting a variety of nasty diseases from unsterilized piercing needles is comparable to those of a junkie sharing their fix. You can save yourself alot of pain and unnecessary risk by going to a pro. You will also be more certain that the piercing you’ll be getting is exactly what you wanted.

Professional piercers are educated and know where important nerves and blood vessels may lie and which spots on the body to avoid. In addition, they have the proper equipment and experience to make the visit a quick and safe experience. Every year there are thousands of people hospitalised because they decided to do the job themselves.  The simple moral of the story is, the next time you want to get a piercing, do the proper research and find a reputable piercing parlour.
