Here, we have sorted out the biggest piercing myths you must know.

Popular things always come with misconception and myths. Similarly, piercing, which has been in vogue for thousands of years, is the subject of certain myths. For example, people think that piercing is painful, infectious and can affect the life. Out of these myths, we have sorted out the biggest piercing misconceptions along with an eye-opener you must know.


 Piercing is Painful

Piercing can hurt but the pain level is varied from parts to parts. Some parts are most painful while others are least painful for piercing. And the skill of your piercer has significant effect on the pain level while you have piercing. Pro piercers are efficient and skillful, making you feel less pain. However, if you are not confident about your pain threshold, you can use numbing cream (but not for the tongue piercing).

Twisting Your Jewelry is Essential for Healing

It is not true at all! It is not necessary for the quick healing of the piercing. Your cleansing process is enough to ensure skin doesn’t attach to the jewelry. Remember, touching your piercing jewelry every now and then can make your piercing prone to infection.

Belly piercing can cause stomach problems.

Absolutely False!!! Because the actual stomach area is far from the belly button, and belly piercing is done on the two layers of the muscular touch. However, performing abs workout or crunches right after your piercing can hurt your abdominal area.

Getting Pierced is an Invitation to Infections:

This is not true as long as you are doing it in a safe way with all sterile equipment. This myth gets press because of some unprofessional piercers whose careless and unhygienic way make their clients end up with infection. Therefore, you must choose professionals and reputed artists for the body piercing. If you are doing it at home, make sure you have all piercing equipment while following the safety standards.

Wrong Eyebrow Piercing Can Lead to Paralyzed Face:

Wrong!  Although the nerve being responsible for facial expression has some parts linked to the eyebrow area, it would be very difficult to pierce it. And the piercing is done on the skin, rather than puncturing the underlying layers of tissue. Paralysis of facial nerve is caused by injuries to skulls or storke.

These are the myths about piercing you should stop believing now. Always seek pro services for piercing and follow aftercare regimen.
