Is Body Piercing Painful

Body piercing is popular among the young and adult all over the world. Historically body piercing was a custom in some cultures and symbol of wealth or courage in others. Nowadays it's a fashion statement popular with people of different ages, occupations, social groups and countries. Girls prefer eyebrow and nose piercing to highlight the face and wear stylish and trendy jewelry. Boys enjoy ear piercings as well as eyebrow and septum piercing. But though there is all required information about piercing and body piercing jewelry, there are still many myths about piercing that frighten people. Many are afraid of piercings but want to have it. There is nothing terrible with piercing if it done by professional piercer in trusted piercing establishment with sterile needles and in sterile surrounding.
Is pain the problem? Or are you afraid of the process itself? Here is some information for you to understand what is going on and what to expect if you decide to pierce your body.
The lowest degree of pain is experienced with ear lobe piercing and eyebrow piercing. Then go piercing of the tongue piercing and belly button piercing. Nostril piercing is more painful and is more for women (as well as navel piercing) while eyebrow and ear piercings are unisex. Piercing of lips and female nipple piercings are in the middle of pain scale. Cartilage piercings are rather painful. And male nipple piercing and genital piercing are the most painful types of piercing.
What is more important to know is what you should expect during the procedure. If it's general piercing, your skin should be cleaned and dry before having piercing. And your experienced, qualified and trained in sterilization principles piercer should have functioning and up-to-date autoclave. The piercer should have washed the hands and applied sterile gloves before carrying out the piercing. After the piercing the piercer should clean the area once again and give you all necessary information on aftercare. Don't touch the piercing unless during cleaning- healing process should run properly to avoid scaring an infections. Special saline solution should be used for everyday cleaning (at least twice or three times per day).
If you want to have oral piercing, you should realize that the risk of infection is higher than with general piercing types. But if you do everything properly and use special mouthwash to remove debris and bacteria, everything is likely to be all right. Have regular check-ups at your dentist.
With genital piercing you should wait for rather a long time before you can be sexual active again if you don't want to risk. Oral sex is especially contraindicative during healing process of intimate piercing.
And only when your piercing is completely healed, you can remove the starter jewelry that is usually surgical stainless steel piercing jewelry and enjoy new shapes and designs a well as materials and colors.
