Part 1: Piercing Guide Introduction
Piercings are considerably more simple than tattoos, but they can also be more complicated. They are simpler because they’re not as permanent, so the commitment isn’t as great. You also don’t have to choose a design that is special and meaningful, or spend hours searching for the perfect picture. Unlike tattoos, they’re available (legally) to younger teens and are a lot less expensive.
However, the reasons they can be more complicated are that there are so many different styles to choose from. There are different pain levels and healing difficulties with each one. There are many different areas of the body that can be pierced, some safer than others. Knowing these factors can help you to make the right decision when thinking of getting a body piercing.
This guide will serve as a source of information for some of the more well-known piercings. It will inform you of where they are located, what they look like, what kinds of jewelry are best and the expected healing times. It will help you to choose the right piercing artist, and provide instructions on how to care for your new piercing. Eventually, more piercings, including less-common ones will be added.
Consult this guide when you consider a body piercing, and pass it along to your friends if they are thinking about it. Your best defense against a piercing disaster is knowledge.
