How Can Body Piercing Go Wrong?
Most people do not think of the consequences of piercing because they think it won’t happen to them. By following the cleaning instructions, you expect the piercing to heal as expected? That isn’t necessarily true. There are also a number of factors that can increase your risk of developing a serious infection or hospital treatment that are sadly out of your control. unfortunately not all parts of your body have the same layers of skins and tissue mass. For example, your earlobe is made up of a matrix of collagen like protein molecules that make up the cartilage, which makes it reasonably safe to pierce.

Catching an infection can happen as soon as the skin starts to heal the wound.
