Questions To Ask Yourself Before A New Piercing

May 19, 2020 3 min read

 Want to get a new piercing but don't know if you should. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before getting a new piercing. Let's Begin.
Question #1
Why do you want to get this piercing?

Do you want this piercing because it's something you've really been wanting or is it because of peer pressure. All we can say is that if it's what you want to get pierced, and it's your decision then go for it. Make sure you really want it and it won't be something you regret doing because of peer pressure.  

Question #2
Are you going to a proper piercing studio?

Have you found yourself a reputable piercing studio. Did you do your part in researching studios around you or are you just going to the first place you find. This question is very important because you want to make sure they have the proper licensing and know what they're doing. 

Question #3
Are you prepared for the maintenance? 

Just like a baby your piercing will need all the tender, love, and care (TLC) it can get. It will take anywhere from 6-8 months for your piercings to heal, possibly even longer depending on your body. You also want to make sure you are keeping it clean and using the proper cleaning solution. Keep into account that it is going to take a while for your piercing to be 100% healed.

Question #4
Are you ready for a lifestyle change?

Are you okay with not sleeping on the side your piercing is on for the next 6-8 months. You will also have to be cautious of changing and washing your face (depending on where the piercing is located). Not being able to go to the hairdresser because they'll continue to hit/pull it while getting your hair done. Waiting to be able to go to the beach, pool, jacuzzi, or even sometimes spas and gyms. You want to take these lifestyle changes into account before getting a piercing. 

Question #5
Is your piercing suitable for school/work?

Does your school or employer allow you to have certain piercings. Is your boss going to be upset or give you a write up because you have a new piercing? Or is it against a school policy and will you get in-trouble for it. These are all things you need to keep into consideration before getting a piercing. You don't want to lose your job over a piercing.

Question #6 
Does your new piercing match the rest?

If you already have a couple of piercings, is this new one going to match the style you're going for? You just want to keep into account that it is aesthetically matching and pleasing and goes good with the look you're going for. You don't want to just pierce something random.

Question #7
Will you suffer from buyers remorse?

A lot of the times we have people come to our studio and they spend whatever they have left in their bank account to get this piercing and then they regret it. Lets say you get this piercing and then you notice that all of the things listed above is just too much to deal with. we recommend that you make sure you really want this piercing so you don't take it out within the next couple of hours or days.
