Physical Effects of Wearing Body Jewelry
Body piercing jewelry is primarily use as adornments to enhance or accentuate the body's features like the face, chest, or belly. Today, there is a wide variety of body piercing jewelry that consumers can purchase made in an array of materials. Because wearing body piercings usually means having an invasive procedure done like creating a punctures to the skin or flesh (with the exception of magnetic and clip-on body jewelry) there is a lot of effects that this type of jewelry can do to the body physical.
Most physical effects that piercing jewelry produce to the body happens on the initial stage of the piercing. When done by a professional in a safe environment, getting a body part pierced is relatively safe though there are still some risks. Someone who gets a piercing and intends to wear piercing jewelry should always take into account that the process is irreversible because the procedure is considered as a permanent body modification.
After the wound has healed, body piercing jewelry still has effects to the body. Constant rubbing or too much stretching of the healed piercing can reopen the wound and create keloids which can be unsightly more so when they are located on obvious places like the face or the ear. This can also happen when a person wear jewelry that is too big or too heavy which can damage the skin and flesh.
The style and design are not just the things to consider as the material of the jewelry should be taken into account too. Low quality body jewelry that contain lead or nickel can produce allergic reactions for many people which can be uncomfortable and even dangerous.
Too much stretching can also create piercings (particularly on the earlobes or lips) that are too large which some people may find unpleasant. Though, today some people intend lobe or lip stretching to happen, getting the inspiration from ancient cultures like those of the Thai hill tribes and the Mursi people in Africa, among others. If not intentionally done, stretched can only be restored through surgery or worst, the skin might be damaged beyond repair.
To ensure that these physical effects do not happen, it is suggested to always consult a professional every time you want to get a piercing. Never try to pierce yourself to avoid inflection, excessive blood loss and unsightly scarring. Also, it is important to choose the best type of body piercing jewelry that will suit your need. Getting something that is too big or too small or too heavy can make problems instead of delivering satisfaction.
Though body piercing jewelry have its risks, it also have great benefits to its wearers. Earrings, the most common piercing in the world, can accentuate the angles of the face, shape of the head, and hairstyle of its wearer. Bellyrings can show off the flatness of one's midsection and attracting attention to this area. Monroe piercings can add an interesting feature to a person's face without still having a somewhat conservative look.
At the end of the day, the choice and the risks of wearing body jewelry lie to the consumers and with proper consideration, the bad physical effects can be avoided and the full advantage of the accessories can be more enjoyed.
