15 Myths People Believed About Getting Piercings That Are Fake
11Piercings won’t cause any issues during breastfeeding
This is false and experts have prohibited women from getting pierced during pregnancy and breastfeeding. They can cause nerve damage which can hinder the milk excretion. It is also said that if you get a piercing right after you get pregnant the healing process will double in time as your body is changing due to the baby inside you.
12You should move your earrings often
You should not move the earring inside your new piercing regularly. Constantly moving it can worsen the wound and lengthen the healing process. This is why when people get their first piercing they are recommended to not put in an earring immediately and opt for a more sturdy type of jewelry that will not move much.
13You should use gold, silver, or surgical steel
It is hard to find gold that won’t have an allergic reaction. Cheap earrings or jewelry will contain nickel which can cause an infection in new punctures. Stainless steel is the best as it does not cause any allergic reactions but this does not work on all skins and some might see an allergic reaction. The best option is using jewelry made from safe titanium.
14Piercing your child’s ear is safe
No, it is not! This is the worst thing you can do for your child. Your child might look cute but you have to understand that they are children and will constantly touch their ears which will slow down the healing process. Also, keep in mind that they will be playing with other children and they could easily get it pulled off.
15Belly button piercings can be worn during pregnancies
This is wrong as the skin tightens as your pregnancy goes on. This will cause you a lot of discomforts. Also, your body might react to the material in your jewelry which was not seen before. Trying to remove it when you’re at the height of your pregnancy will cause you severe discomfort.
