All About Snug Piercings

 

2018 will be the year of the ear. Ear piercings are making a comeback, and expected to be trending throughout the year. With so much space on a single ear, everyone can get creative with what type of piercings they want. Amongst the various different types of piercings, the snug piercing is approaching in full gear.

 

 

WHAT IS A SNUG PIERCING?

Placed through the cartilage between the inner and outer ridge of the ear, the position of snug piercings varies for each person, but it is generally positioned at the middle of the ear, above the anti-tragus. Although a more difficult form of ear piercing, snug piercings are great in expanding your collection, and being creative while expressing your uniqueness. 

 

DOES IT HURT?

Unfortunately, because of the thick cartilage and sensitivity of the area, snug piercings are considered to be one of the more painful piercings. But, good news, everyone’s pain tolerance varies, and the higher your tolerance, the less it’s going to hurt.

 

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SNUG PIERCING?

Because snug piercings are more difficult, be sure to go to an experienced, professional piercer for the procedure. In order to prevent infections, you should care for and clean the area of the piercing daily. Your piercer may provide you with a cleaning solution and instructions, or you can use warm salt water to clean the area two to three times a day. Make sure you don’t over-clean your piercing, as that can irritate the area.

Make sure not to touch the piercing, especially with dirty hands. Be careful with anything that may come in contact with your piercing, such as clothing, earphones, bedding, and your phone.

Your piercing will take 6 to 12 months to heal. Also, it is recommended to wait until your piercing heals before switching jewelry.

How to find or become a piercing expert

How to find or become a piercing expert:

When you are first thinking of getting a piercing on your body, one will have many questions. One of the first questions to come to mind will be who and where can I find an experienced piercer?

You could always get a contact from one of your friends who has previously gotten pierced, but here’s a better way to find one:

The Association of Professional Piercers (APP ; https://safepiercing.org/)

As the website states, they guarantee safety. If a piercer wants to join the association, it will take time to apply. This ensures that their studio is safe and clean. They are California-based, and an international non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of vital health and safety information about body piercing to piercers, health care professionals, legislators, and the general public.

You can use the “find  a member” function to search for someone in your area who participates. Although the website allows you to look for members in your area, they recommend searching by Zip code. If you know who you’re looking for, enter the name, studio, or other keyword in the keyword field.

Also, you can get some tips for after care from the website and “becoming a piercer” yourself. You can get assistance by watching videos, the magazine, or by attending an apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is defined as a specific period of guided progress through the basic, intermediate and advanced levels of piercing training.
