Piercing is a form of body art in which a needle is used to puncture a hole into a part of the body, a piece of jewelry is then inserted into the hole.
Piercings are quite painful and are very prone to infections if they are not properly done and taken care of.
Any part of the body can be pierced. Naturally, some areas will be more difficult and more painful to pierce than others, while some require more care and attention than others because they are more sensitive. Also, some piercings take longer to heal than others. Some piercings even take up to 8 months or more to completely heal up.
Here are some cool piercings options you can get:
The septum is the cartilaginous wall that runs down the center of the nose, separating the right and left nostrils. The thin wall of cartilage itself is not pierced, but the soft space of tissue just below the septum. Septum piercing takes about four to six weeks to heal.
This piercing is cool, especially when you are wearing a crop top. It takes about 6 months to heal up and it requires extra caution during the process of piercing and the after care because the belly button is a sensitive area of the body.
This is the commonest type of piercing and also the easiest to get being that it is not as painful as other piercings and also takes a shorter time to heal completely.
