Body piercing has been around for centuries with ear piercings being the most common form of body decoration. There is an increasing popularity in body piercings of other anatomical locations, such as the nose, mouth, and navel. Celebrities body piercings are photographed and publicized, which contributes to this trend. There are premium body piercing studios with designer body jewelry, making the shopping experience feel more like a traditional jewelry store, which is appealing to more people.
Because of this growing interest and the increasing number of people with body piercings, there is an increased risk for skin infections and infectious diseases. There are key factors to understand before getting a body piercing, including the importance of body piercing safety, how to select a body piercer, and what questions to ask before getting a body piercing.
