Precautions for body piercings

It is a big decision to get body piercings. The decision should be made with the help of trusted adults. Before making a decision, it is important to talk with them about the potential risks and precautions.

It is best to avoid alcohol. Alcohol is a harsh substance and can destroy new healing tissue. New piercings should always be cleaned with saltwater. It is also important to avoid crunchy foods and spicy foods.
The piercer should also use disposable surgical gloves for each piercing procedure. After the glove has been removed, the piercer must wash his or her hands. If the client is able, he or she should also wash his or her hands. If the client is unable to wash his/her hands, the piercer can apply an antimicrobial surgical hand scrub to his/her hands.

There is no precise estimate of how many complications are associated with body piercings. However, complications are common. The most common complication is traumatic tearing.
