Self piercing has always been cursed by many professional piercers. The normal professional body piercing process already carries risks but when this procedure is performed on a person without training and expertise, the risk can increase a hundredfold.
With the increasing popularity of body jewelry to more and more people, some enthusiasts dabbling in businesses risk stabbing themselves without professional training or supervision.
These brave individuals, the majority of whom appear to be in the 15-24 age group, seem to think that body piercing is child’s play and that anyone can do it. But in reality, there are plenty of people who pay thousands of dollars and spend years training to become stabbing professionals.
Self piercing has always been cursed by many professional piercers.
The normal professional body piercing process already carries risks but when this procedure is performed on a person without training and expertise, the risk can be increased a hundredfold.
Here are a few reasons why you are better off going to a professional dock than buying a self-stabbing package and doing it yourself.
Professional piercing companies are required by law to regularly clean and clean. Self-piercing can occur anywhere with the risk of getting your equipment and body jewelry contaminated. The likelihood of contracting the infection increases when the procedure is performed in a place that has not been properly prepared.
Body piercing is not as easy as many people think. Professional piercers spend a lot of time and money doing the job right with minimum risk for the customer. Doing your own piercing puts you in danger of uneven holes, development of scars or keloids, bleeding and infection. When piercing is done in places near the arteries and nerves, the chances of injuring yourself and threatening your life are high.
Most importantly, stabbing yourself hurts more than going to a professional.
Trained piercers know what they are doing and don’t hesitate. Also, stabbing takes less time when the person doing it is experienced.
Mouth and tongue piercing when done incorrectly can cause speech impediment, chip teeth and even block the airways due to swelling or bleeding. The mouth also contains thousands of bacteria that can cause infections.
The cartilage of the ear (which is one of the most popular areas that many people try to puncture themselves) can develop an abscess when the puncture is not done properly. There are times when this pus buildup cannot be treated with antibiotics alone and surgery is needed which can disfigure the ear. When not treated properly, abscesses can lead to blood poisoning or toxic shock syndrome.
Extremely courageous individuals who think about stabbing their own genitals should think twice.
Failed self-piercing can damage your sex drive and make urinating difficult and painful. When the nerves and blood vessels of the penis are damaged, it may not get an erection again.
Whether it’s a thrill experience or just wanting to save a few bucks, stabbing yourself is never a good alternative to paying a professional piercer a visit. Since it is in the hands of a trained professional, you are guaranteed less risk and more satisfying results than doing it yourself.
