In the past few years body arts involving tattoo and body piercing has become very popular all over the world. Both of these forms of body arts are the continuation of the ancient past.

Earlier tattoos and body piercing were performed to mark certain social status and to beautify themselves but the modern concept behind body piercing is only and only to beautify them to make themselves to stand out of the group of normal people.

Whether it is ears, lips, nostrils, eyebrows, belly buttons, tongues, or even cheeks, you could see multiple piercing on lots of people. If you think you want to beautify yourself like one of them then you must do little investigation before piercing your body parts.

"Prevention is better than cure" is truly applicable in this case because if body piercing is done in an unhealthy way then it can be fatal.

If you are thinking about getting pierced, do your research first because it is always wise to find out the risks involved so that you can take precaution in advance to protect yourself from any infections and other complications.

More importantly make sure that you are not underage because underage people are not eligible for body piercing.

Remember to investigate that the person performing the body piercing provides you a safe, clean, and professional environment. Make an investigation on the shop's procedures and find out whether it has an autoclave (a sterilizing machine) and whether the instruments are kept in sealed packets or not.

Investigate the type of jewelry the shop offers because some people have allergic reactions to certain types of metals. Surgical steel, solid 14-karat or 18-karat gold, niobium, titanium and platinum are certain nontoxic metals that are safe and should be used for body piercing.

Certain sites of our body are very vulnerable to get infected like mouth and nose.

Tongue, cheek, and lip piercing can cause teeth and gum problems. People with certain types of heart disease might have a higher risk of developing a heart infection after body piercing.

Seek your doctor for precautions that you should have in advance if you have health problems like allergies, diabetes, skin disorders, etc.

Make sure that you are up to date with your hepatitis and tetanus immunizations. Make medical arrangements in advance so that if your piercing becomes infected you can rush for medical aid. Take special care if you decide to do body piercing.
