Piercing is done mainly by the younger generation, as it is considered fashionable. But before doing it, it is advisable to think about whether it is needed at all? Of course, you can remove the jewelry, but the puncture will remain forever, and sometimes it does not look quite aesthetically pleasing. It is better to get pierced in a special salon, as the risk of getting an infection at home is very high. Complications vary. Belly button piercing is considered especially dangerous: infectious lesions of the abdominal cavity can occur. In second place in terms of risk is genital and tongue piercing.
Take a large sewing needle, you can use a shoe. Disinfect her. Better to boil and then treat with alcohol.
Mark the puncture site. Soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and rub the skin thoroughly. If there is redness or other inflammatory processes in the desired place where you are going to get pierced, then it is better to postpone the procedure.
Insert the needle slowly until a bilateral puncture is formed. The procedure is painful, so bear with it. For pain relief, you can dilute an ampoule of lidocaine with alcohol, but only if you are not allergic.
Blot the blood with a sterile swab and insert the jewelry. If this does not work for you, then you used a thin needle, and the puncture turned out to be of a small diameter. Try repeating the procedure using a thicker needle.
Treat the piercing area with an alcohol solution twice a day. See your doctor at the slightest sign of infection.
