Piercing is one of the most ancient means of body decoration. Piercing was made by people of different nations and different epochs for centuries and even millennia. Ancient Egyptians pierced the navel - this is not only a decoration, but also a symbol: pierced nipple meant belonging to the nobility. In the, the modern world of piercing, which once settled down in the hippie culture, gradually became popular among representatives of all ages and social strata.
Where to apply the piercing
Most often wear earrings in ears, eyebrows, nose, navel and nipples.
Experts strongly recommend to do piercing only in the salon of the proven wizard! But there are craftsmen who are ready to puncture at home. To minimize the puncture in the wrong place, do not spoil, damage nerve endings and blood vessels, you must clearly identify and point directly to the skin point for future decorations.
Having taken this responsible work, the needle must be kept firmly and confidently, punctured quickly and necessarily smooth. In any form of piercing, the main thing is hygiene and sterility, so that puncture and tools are carefully disinfected. Hands are no exception, wash with soap, wipe dry and rub with alcohol. If it is possible, then you should use sterile medical gloves.
Procedures Ear piercing is the most popular kind of puncture, it's not so difficult to make: there is no risk of getting into a bowl, there are not many biofuels in the ointment. Prick on the back of the nape, insert the catheter of the earring and pull it out holding it. If you pierce the ear with an ordinary sewing needle, the earring will be inserted a bit harder. Hold the earlobe stretched and do not release until the jewelry is in place. The easiest way to use a cluster earring is. Often after a successful first experience of a puncture of the ear there is a desire to make several more holes.
Eyebrow puncture from the bottom up, grabbing the skin. The rod pull out and disinfect the puncture site. It is important that the piercing is as close as possible to the end of the eyebrow and as far away as possible from the friction: if you cut into a pearl, there is a risk of getting into an active biotok. You can also damage the eye nerves and get a sharp deterioration of vision. Eyebrows pierce horizontally, vertically or diagonally. If, piercing the skin, there was a sharp and severe pain, then you fell into the vessel or nerve. Remove the needle, squeeze the pain place with cotton wool, and puncture will have to do elsewhere in the eyebrows.
The wing of the nose is a popular piercing place. Before puncture, the nostrils are pulled out to allow the cuff to lie along the wall, so that the procedure is not aesthetic, unlike the result. Frequent cases of piercing in the septum between the nostrils.
The language is even more often pierced, although it is quite dangerous: under the tongue are large vessels. Therefore, puncture is done between them, from the bottom up. It is important to place the needle strictly vertically, otherwise it will be both ugly and uncomfortable. After the puncture is done and the rod is installed, it is necessary to rinse your mouth. First rinse should be done once a day and every time after a meal.
