How would you like to have your ear pierced and go on to have no pain or infection whatsoever in the long run? It is by far the dream and wish of every young girl that wants to get a pierced earring. Below are ways or tips that will help you get and enjoy the best ear piercing experience ever:
Preparing your earrings
Grab a cotton ball and smear it with alcohol, then rub the alcohol on the earrings. It will get them sanitized before you put them into your body. Do not make the mistake that most young girls do, assuming that the jewelry is clean, only to suffer from a severe infection shortly afterwards. In case you cannot get an alcohol swab; you could use either hydrogen peroxide or any other recommended skin disinfectant.
Do your best to wipe all the surfaces of the earring, and also have it soaked inside the disinfectant for approximately thirty seconds. Then remove your earrings, wipe them clean and dry using a clean cloth or a tissue paper. Again, another tip for you; make sure that you disinfect them every other time you want to put them on. Now, about the tips of the earrings, you could try and lubricate them with either some Vaseline or some other petroleum jelly products to make them slippery and easy to insert.
The Ear-Piercing Process
If possible especially for the first timers, it is advisable that you visit a professional piercer perhaps from the mall or at the nearby tattoo parlor. Alternatively, you could get your ears pierced at home by following some few steps that will guide you through the entire process.
• Begin by filling in a small cup or a glass with some disinfectant e.g. alcohol, go for the strongest that you can afford
• Then dip the earrings that you want to put in after the piercing in process into the cup containing the disinfectant
• Grab another similar container, put the disinfectant in again and put the needle in to get it sterilized
• Take another small bowl and put a substantial amount of Hydrogen Peroxide in it and rub your ear before the stabbing process. It is critical to neutralize any bacteria or germs on your ears to avoid any post-piercing ear infections
• Mark your ears, making sure that they are evenly placed, indicating the site of insertion or the entry point
• Remove the needle from the disinfectant container, dry it off and begin pushing it through the first ear. While you are at it, you should anticipate hearing some popping sounds, a sign that the needle is going through.
• Get the earrings ready, remove them from the container and dry them off. Then quickly remove the needle from your ear and slowly put in the earring.
• Lastly, make sure that you clean off your ear with the alcohol as well as the Hydrogen Peroxide after the whole process is done to destroy any remaining or available bacteria that might cause any harm in the future.
The Wearing and Caring Experience
Always make sure that each earring is all in and not half way in, by wiggling it back and forth. Also make sure that it is comfortable to wear and that they are precisely how you imagined yourself, by looking in your mirror before stepping out.
When it comes to the removing part, after the day is done and you are back home, and especially if it is your first time, a mirror will be necessary. Simply because you still do not have the experience and mastery that the others have and also to avoid injuring or hurting your ears, you will have to go back to your mirror. This way, you will be able to see exactly where you need to unhook, twist, etc.
Remember to disinfect your earring before the next putting earrings in experience. Also, avoid leaving your earrings out for a very long time as the pierced hole might close and cost you another piercing experience. Do your best to put them back in regularly, to maintain the patency of the holes.
The putting earrings in exercise can be pretty easy as well as painless when you can get the hang of it. First and foremost, you should disinfect your jewelry before putting it into your body. Then carefully slide in each earring into the earlobe and twist slightly.
Then clasp the back of each earring on the back of your ears. Here is a little tip for you, make sure that both of your earrings match before you fix them in. It is imperative to emphasize, however, that the experience might differ from person to person, especially the healing time. One person might heal sooner than the other, and again it will also depend on where and who did the piercing.
Experience will teach you soon or later that some earrings are more comfortable than others. Some earrings, depending on the make and type, especially the cheap ones, might irritate your skin. You can somehow mitigate the skin sensitivity effect on the earrings by applying a thin layer of any clear nail polish on the backs of the earrings.
The most important part, however, is that before you decide to buy a particular type of ornament, ask the manufacturer or the responsible person the exact type of metal utilized in the making process. Most individuals usually react to certain metals such as nickel; you will be protecting yourself from any injuries or complications that might arise in the future, thereby ruining your experience.
