  9. LIFESTYLE: Certain piercings may impact your daily life, such as your ability to participate in certain physical activities or wear certain types of clothing. Consider these factors before getting a piercing.

  10. PAIN: While piercing pain varies based on the individual and type of piercing, it is important to be prepared for some level of discomfort during the piercing process.

  11. AFTERCARE: Proper aftercare is essential for proper healing and to reduce the risk of infection and other complications. Make sure you understand the aftercare requirements for your specific piercing and are committed to following them.

  12. BE PATIENT: Healing times can vary, and it is important to be patient and allow the piercing to heal fully before changing or removing jewelry.

By following these precautions, you can minimize the risk of complications and ensure a safe and successful piercing experience. If you have any concerns or questions, be sure to ask your piercer before getting the piercing done.
