Rule No.1 – Don’t do it!
How do I pierce myself?
Piercing yourself can lead to severe problems including:
– eg cartilage infections. This can involve amputation of area (cutting out the infected area) before it spreads.
– normal infections which leads to doctor’s appointments for antibiotics, plus swelling of the area which may cause an abcess resulting in loose drooping of the skin.
Piercing a vein or artery by mistake – This doesn’t stop bleeding and involves a visit to the emergency room which can work out VERY expensive and even more painful!
Best bet if you are still thinking of piercing yourself, pop in to the shop and have a chat to our body piercers, they’ll be able to advise you and explain the dangers.
