Few things to know about teardrop piercing
So, are you ready to get pierced? But what type of piercing will you prefer? Nose piercing, ear piercing, tongue piercing, belly button, and so on. The list is very long and it can be daunting task to select the finest one.
Why not try the teardrop pierce?
Yes, if you have been looking for a bold and something different, you must try teardrop piercing. This piercing got its name due to its location. Being placed on right atop the apples of your cheeks, i.e. just where teardrops usually fall, it looks amazing. As far as the jewelry is concerned, people prefer going with the same earrings which is used for the belly or the brow.
In case, you are making your mind for this type of piercing, here are few things you need to take note of;
Visibility – The best thing about teardrop piercing is that it is highly visible. In case, you don’t want something which is always visible, it is not meant for you.
Tolerance for pain – Generally, people say that this type of piercing does not hurt. However, the truth is that it can. Reason being, the process of piercing remains the same. Basically, it will depend on your own tolerance for pain and also the skin sensitivity. As the facial skin is softer and sometimes thinner than other parts of the body, it can be slightly more painful. But don’t worry! You can keep it away from pain using Dr. Numb. It is a topical anesthetic cream which comes with 5% lidocaine and essential oils. When applied to the skin, it causes a numbing sensation for 3 to 4 hours. Hence, you don’t need to bear pain always.
Skin sensitivity – As the teardrop piercing is done right on your skin, you need to make sure that your face is not that sensitive. You will have to sanitize the piercing many times in a week, after getting the job done. Hence, make sure that if you apply alcohol on the area, it doesn’t cause any reaction or facial allergies. Plus, you need to take note of your hygiene. It is very important to make sure that you are only getting pierced from a specialist.
Choose an expert- Before getting pierced, it is advised to take out good amount of time to actually find out a right piercer. You can ask recommendations from friends and family. They might be able to give you the contact details of a good artist for the job. Or you can search online, checking out their reviews and previous works.
Once you find out a right person, do visit the location and see how the artist actually carries out the process. Does he use sanitized tools? Does the place look clean? Will you be comfortable with the artist? If you are able to find out positive response, go ahead.
Teardrop piercing is similar to any other piercing. Just take care of it before and after getting it done to enjoy a beautiful body art!
I want to share my experience with using Dr.numb. I tried nearly every other product when I got my tattoo work done and nothing, I mean absolutely nothing worked like Dr. Numbs cream. it honestly is the best on the market and I want to thank Dr.numb for having a solution to the pain. Thanks Dr. Numb!
I love this cream it works wonders. I was able to lay of the table while he worked on my tattoo for about 2 hours before I needed a break for a smoke. Great product!!
Wonderful for tattoos! Really helps with longer sessions. Applied thick and can't feel a thing. Would definitely recommend!
This is the 3rd time I have purchased this cream I like it a lot it does work just wrap the are for 30 minutes and done you won't feel a thing I have 3 big tattoos and I felt no pain using it
This stuff really does work and is well worth the $$. FYI, the longer you leave it on before a tattoo, the longer it lasts!!
