What are the risks with body piercing ?
People always ask what the risks are in body piercing. Piercing is a wound to our bodies and a break in the skin so throughout healing the piercing is open to infection. At the time of piercing you may have some bleeding and or bruising occuring. You can reduce the risk of infection by bathing your piercing, keeping it clean and dry and by keeping in the jewellery it was pierced with until healed.
Different people and different piercings make for varied results. Some people's bodies reject their piercing, this is usually due to over cleaning or changing your jewellery too soon.
At Health and Body we will give you writtent and verbal after care advice but your piercing homecare is completely your responsibility.
Most piercings heal perfectly but sometimes infection can occur
All piercings are at your own risk
