Which body piercing is for you?
If you want to get pierced but you don’t know where, worry not! Today we have rounded up five parts of your body where you can place jewelry.
Body piercing locations
You can put a piercing in almost any part of the body, but we recommend you consider your particular anatomy before getting one. Keep in mind that piercings such as upper ear are very dependent on the individual shape of your body parts. Thereby, you can choose not only the location of your preference but also the best jewelry for your choice.
Dermal piercings are single-point surface piercings. A professional piercer uses a dermal punch to remove a small circle of flesh to place the dermal anchor. Then, he or she uses dermal forceps to insert a small dermal anchor into the resulting hole. The complete healing time varies from 3 to 6 months.
The piercing can be placed anywhere around the lip. While it requires careful cleaning, it usually heals rapidly, thanks to the plentiful blood supply to the mouth.
- Navel piercings
Also known as a belly button piercing or an umbilical dip piercing, is a type of piercing placed in, or around, the navel. Healing usually takes less than six months, and as long you keep it clean, it will heal nicely.
- Nostril piercings
The jewelry is traditionally put in the crease line on the side of the nose. Because this area is often thinner than the rest of the nose, it may heal quickly and feel less tender when pierced.
- Septum piercings
The ring is placed in the nasal septum, a cartilaginous dividing wall between the nostrils. It usually heals within six-to-eight weeks, also depending on the individual. It should only be stretched by 1mm at a time, and waiting, at least, a month between stretches is advisable.
Remember that piercings should only be done by a professional and experienced body piercer, and here at Mantra Tattoo we have two of them: Randy & Lil’ Chris!
