Top Tips for a Safe Piercing

By July 11, 2023 - 3:56am

Getting your ears pierced should be fun – a bit painful, perhaps – but an overall good experience, especially if we are speaking about your child. You start by searching for the best earrings that suit you and the young lady. Many online markets, such as Amazon, eBay, and TEMU, are available. Temu shopping, for example, offers a wide range of earrings, ranging from gorgeous studs to stylish statement pieces.

You can surf the net and find answers to all your questions like ‘What earnings are better to buy?’, “What are the best Amazon deals for jewelry?’ or ‘Is Temu safe?’ Of course, you’ll have to wait sometime after piercing to wear your precious jewelry. But this is nothing compared to the delight and joy that you experience.

Be aware that not all piercing experiences turn out well. There are quite a few, in fact, that teach us lessons about just how badly an ear piercing can go wrong.

Prepare for Disaster

When you choose to pierce your little one’s ears, you need to prepare for the possibility that something can go wrong. Little ones are not always interested in ear piercing, especially if they are young enough not to understand what is happening.

Expect tears and pain for your young ones. Granted, the pain will fade quickly, but it’s impossible to pierce anyone’s ears without any pain at all. Granted, even if you are prepared for some hysterics, steel yourself that something even worse might happen. The piercing gun might stick, for example. The lady running the gun might decide to pry it off your baby’s ear with a set of pliers.

Follow Through on Set-Up

If you know your child can’t sit still very well, ask the piercer to get everything she needs out and ready first. Check the tray to be sure there are two earrings. If you catch a piercer unprepared, you might wind up holding a screaming child while the booth owner searches for a matching earring for the second ear. Worse, you might be like one mother and realize that her daughter was actually wearing two different earrings – the sort that must stay in her ears for six weeks.

Maintain Sanitization

Don’t let anyone near your ears without gloves and proper sanitizing. This is a plea never to allow a friend to pierce your ears, and don’t let the professionals even touch your ears to check the piercing without wearing gloves to prevent infection.

Fingers are dirty things, and your ears aren’t easily scrubbed for germs. Having open wounds in your ears means the risk of infection is high. Anticipate this by buying plenty of gloves yourself and keeping cleaning agents at hand to be sure your new piercings stay clean, healthy, and attractive.

To wear fabulous earrings is a dream of many women, regardless of their age. At the same time, there are many worries about the procedure, potential pain, and consequences. If you want to have a positive experience and calm yourselves, make sure you follow the tips provided above.
