Piercing F.A.Q We know you want a piercing! We tried to put together questions that many people are curious about. Piercing F.A.Q You should read the answers to these questions before getting a piercing. Piercing F.A.QWe will help you with your questions in this article!
Does that hurt?
The undefeated leader in the “Frequently Asked Questions” category!
It’s a prick, and it is briefly uncomfortable. But don’t worry: it goes very quickly, and you can endure it well. A syringe at the respective point hurts a lot more!
How long does it take?
A visit to us can – depending on the need for information in advance – be difficult to estimate in advance. Every customer gets the time and attention they need! The prick itself usually lasts> 1 second.
I am allergic to nickel. Can I still get pierced?
Yes, in any case. For the initial use when piercing, we always use jewelry made of G23 titanium, guaranteed nickel-free, and therefore approved for piercing.
Can tongue piercing injure the taste buds?
No. The taste buds on the tongue’s surface are responsible for the sense of taste; they are distributed over the entire surface of the tongue. There is no particular “taste bud” that could be injured. Language restrictions (lisp, etc.) will not be left behind either!
Can I get facial paralysis from a piercing?
No, the prick itself rules that out. The nerves that can cause facial impairment after an injury run on the side of the head, deep under the skin.
Can you bleed to death with a navel piercing?
No. It is practically impossible to injure a corresponding blood vessel in this region of the body with a piercing needle and cause dangerous bleeding.
Is it allowed to have certain piercings done at the age of 16 without parental permission?
Unfortunately not, even the parents have to permit in writing to have their ears pierced. The law makes no difference between the individual piercings.
Why am I allowed to go out in the sun with a fresh piercing but not in the solarium?
The skin is used to natural sunlight, which is not a problem for it. In the solarium, the skin is confronted with an unnaturally high concentration of UV light. It provokes a defense reaction in which processes are set in motion in the skin that can hurt wound healing.
Can I still have an X-ray or an MRI with my piercings?
Yes and no. The piercing jewelry we use consists of titanium G23 is hardly electrically conductive and does not generate magnetic resonance. Accordingly, it cannot heat up in the magnetic resonance tomograph or be torn out. However, if the piercing is located in a specifically examined region, only white areas appear on the respective examination images on which the piercing is located. It is therefore advisable to remove the jewelry and exchange it for a plastic container. These retainers are, of course, available from us.
Can I get pierced/tattooed when I’m pregnant?
As sorry as we are: No! A woman’s body is heavily stressed during pregnancy, and ideal wound healing is doubtful. If there is now an inflammation, there will be no avoiding massive medication – the consequences for mother and child cannot be foreseen. Therefore, there are no piercings and tattoos for expectant and nursing mothers.
