Ear piercing – an eternal trend in contemporary spirit
Precautions and information
First and foremost, you need to know that getting your ears pierced can sometimes be a painful procedure. It depends on several factors including: location, skills of the piercer, quality of tools used and even the state of anxiety of the client. The healing time also varies depending on the variant chosen. In general, lobe piercing is the least painful unlike that of cartilage. The piercing must be done only by real professionals because the examples of health problems following a test at home are numerous. You can check the Yelp site for a selection (based on customer reviews) of the best salons in your city. In addition, it must be taken into account that the use of a pistol is strictly forbidden (except on the lobe) as this can cause not only infections but also serious damage especially in the area of the cartilage.

Price and choice of jewelry
The cost of getting a part of the ear pierced depends on the location and style of jewelry chosen. To reduce the risk of infection, only medical identification jewelry should be used. Of course the piercing on lobe, as a favorite, is the cheapest – from 10 € (with the pistol) at 30 € (with the needle) including the prosthesis. Prices for other types of piercing range from € 30 to € 70. Apart from the piercing procedure, expenses for piercing care products must also be included. On the other hand, if you want to change the jewel, you have to wait at least 5-6 weeks after the procedure.
When drilling, opt only for good quality jewelry
Hygiene and care
Most ear piercing requires about 3-6 months to heal. At first, it is normal to feel discomfort but if a few days after the procedure you have symptoms like heat, inflammation, pain or secretions and instead of decreasing they get worse consult a doctor immediately. In addition, sometimes you can smell a weird smell that comes from your new piercing. You can use an anti-bacterial product to get rid of it. If the odor is accompanied by secretion or erythema, it may be an infection. In order to avoid any complication never touch the piercing with dirty hands.
