Many of the risks associated with body piercing can be inconvenient and even painful, but some risks can be life-threatening. Here's how to protect your health when having a body piercing. 

Piercing Pain
Many people want to know how the pain of different types of piercings compare. The level of pain depends largely on the location of the piercing. The most common piercing is still the fleshy part of the lower ear lobe. This piercing is only momentarily painful, and most people find it quite bearable.

Piercing Mistakes - Do Not Do It Yourself!
You will not be in a sterile environment. And no, wiping things down with alcohol doesn't count. Piercing shops use chemicals that kill 99% of all diseases in 1 minute. Alcohol is merely a disinfectant, meaning it does not kill all pathogens. Sterility is absolutely vital when getting a piercing, as it greatly minimizes the chances of getting an infection, or even a disease!

Piercing Effects
Irritation to your skin inside and outside of the piercing is a normal side effect after you receive a piercing. Depending on the length of the healing period for your specific piercing, your immune system and aftercare regimen, your piercing may appear and feel irritated for a minimum of four weeks to one year. When the piercing site experiences irritation, your piercing will appear swollen and red, and exude a clear, white or light-yellow fluid, according to the Association of Professional Piercers. 

Piercing Aftercare Awareness
Piercing, tattoos, body scarifications and other body modifications are maybe the most popular body decoration in the past few years. People are getting tattoos and piercings every day. This seems to be trendy and a great way for self-expression. 

Allergic Reaction From Jewelry
The jewelers are extremely important especially for the first piercing. The preferable metal is titanium, as this one is the most convenient and does not contain toxic substances, which reduces the chances of allergies, suppurations and infections. Normally, it is essential that the piercing has the appropriate size for the body spot where it is going to be placed.
