But before you even decide to have any part of your body pierced, know that this is more than a fashion or status symbol for this involves your health. It is just right to consider the following points before going to pierce.
1. Go to a professional piercer. Make sure that his piercing studio has all the documents to prove its legal operation and that he is apt to perform any type of piercing.
2. A piercing is a wound in the skin. It must be taken care of carefully and regularly for proper healing. I can just imagine this nine-year-old deciding to climb a tree, getting the piercing snagged on a branch, ripping it out, getting an infection, ending up in the hospital, and here come the parents with an attorney to sue me.
3. There's a reason tattoo studios are licensed and inspected by local health departments. To keep the clients safe. To prevent the spread of disease. To monitor how tattoo/piercing salons are performing their services. To prevent sickness, illness, and permanent injury to clients.
4.Healing usually takes six to eight weeks but it is better to give your body more time to adjust before you start changing your belly body jewelry. A good after care should be observed and one should follow the instruction of the piercer to the dot for faster healing.
5. Avoid this kind of metal options like Sterling silver for new piercing. Silver tarnish and that's not good with open wound at all. Gold plated jewelry isn't good too because it might cause irritation and infection.
With all things considered above, you are ready to get pierced. Always make sure to go to a professional piercer and if you are not yet sure what metal to use for then ask your professional piercer for any recommendations on the best metal choice to use.
