Are you planning to get your tongue pierced or you are in love with eyebrow piercing? Whatever may be the reason is for coming to this post, you need to know that body piercing is definitely one of the oldest forms of body art.

It has been ruling the world of fashion since ages. And it has been often associated with number of health risks. You can read them in the last post. But besides that, there is one more thing you need to pay attention when you look for piercing. Especially, when you want to prevent from all those scary possibilities of health risks, it is essential to do some homework!

Yes, you need to start your search for a right parlour. How? Here you will find your answer;

Check for credentials: Start looking for the license first; do check whether it is authorised by the local board of health to run a piercing studio. Also, be sure that the license hasn’t expired. You can check for membership, whether it is in a recognised group or not. Doing so, you can rest assure that the parlour operates as per the high standards set for membership and has undergone extensive training.

Knowledgeable Staff: You can simply confirm this by asking lots of questions. Reason being, if the employees are not aware of answers they will be more like sales clerks pushing jewellery than anything. Bu, on the other hand, if they are ready to answer your piercing questions, and give you good and clear advice, this means they are well-trained and experienced.

Right Printed information: Don’t forget to ask for the aftercare information. Good parlours often provide them in printed format. If they lack printed version, i.e. the step-by-step instructions, walk away. People often forget easily what they need to do; they forget the name of the product to use, and so on. Having printed instructions help the client to be free from worries of forgetting things.

And just having the printed format is not enough. Do check the information they provide is right or not. Read through the aftercare instructions carefully and try to evaluate by cross-checking with the piercing literature. For example, if it still recommends using alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, they are not updated about the current research in body piercing care. And you must look for other options.

Simply, if you want to end up with a good piercing and low risk of infection or other complications, it is essential to choose a good piercing parlour and a professional piercer. Remember these tips and you can have a safe piercing done.
