Before You Decide To Get A Nipple Ring
Nipple rings are no longer just subjugated to the subculture. Body piercing has become increasingly popular, and nipple rings take the lead. As with any piercing, a hollow needle is inserted into the nipple and a nipple ring is attached. When you are considering getting a piercing for a nipple ring, there are a few issues to consider first. Make sure the person who is doing the piercing for your nipple ring is certified and that the office location is sanitary. Consider the tissue around where the nipple ring will be. The nipple ring will be surrounded by very sensitive tissue. Unlike an ear piercing, a nipple ring will be rubbing on clothing and likely to become easily irritated. Perspiration is more likely to be present on and around the nipple ring, thus making the growth of bacteria more prevalent and the risk of infection much greater. In regard to infection and irritation, a nipple ring is no different in the area of risk factors than any other piercing. If the area in or around your nipple ring shows any of the following signs of infection, contact your physician immediately: continued bleeding, increased swelling, further pain, red streaking and extreme warmth in or around the tissue. Also, be aware that milk ducts in females may be damaged or completely severed during the piercing process for a nipple ring.
