  • Even if body piercings are becoming popular and somehow accepted by society, not everyone is into this and in fact, according to stats, about 14% of the people are actually doing this.

But there are types of metals that won’t cause any allergic reactions such as titanium, surgical stainless steel, and 14 or 18-carat gold. So, if you want to be sure, you can go for these types of metal. 
  • Don’t assume that you can have something pierced in your body and if you don’t like the result, you can always have it removed. Note the fact that your body is already pierced, so there is always a reminder of what you did and at the same time, it also means that you have already taken the risk, no matter if, in the end, you just have it removed. So, before you will allow any part of your body to be pierced, see to it that you are really sure about it.
