If you have a piercing, chances are you've probably slept on it at some point and may be wondering if it's okay to continue doing so once it's fully healed. The short answer is yes, you can sleep on your piercings after they are healed. However, there are a few important steps to follow to ensure that your piercing stays healthy and comfortable while you sleep.
The first step to sleeping on your piercings is to make sure they are actually fully healed. This usually takes six to nine months for most piercings, although some may take up to a year to fully heal. It's important to double check with a professional piercer to confirm that your piercing is fully healed before attempting to sleep on it.
Once your piercing is fully healed, the next step is to make sure it has been downsized. When piercers do fresh piercings, they often give clients a long post to allow for swelling. However, once the swelling has subsided, it's important to downsize to a shorter post to ensure that your piercing stays comfortable and doesn't get snagged while you sleep.
In addition to downsizing, there are a few other things you can do to maintain a healthy piercing while you sleep. These include:
By following these steps and taking good care of your piercing, you can comfortably sleep on it and enjoy your new body adornment. Just remember to be patient and give your piercing time to heal fully before attempting to sleep on it, and to consult a professional piercer if you have any questions or concerns.
