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.

EASY STEPS TO OPEN YOUR ONLINE JEWELRY STORE!

Online Body Jewelry Store

 

As we covered in our previous posts about choosing between international and domestic suppliers as well as How to choose your supplier, today I want to show you a brief guide to the cheapest and easiest way to open your own store and be your own boss.

Opening an actual store could be really expensive; with the market move to the virtual web and the convenience of the technology, people start moving towards online shopping more and more every day.

Opening an online store could be so easy, with a small amount of money you can run an online store instead of investing a lot of money into an actual store; within one click you will be able to reach thousands if not even millions of potential customers and out of that you could get more visitors and eventually more sales and profit.

Now you have to decide the type of jewelry you want to sell as well as your vendor; you should start the process of registration, get tax id and all the other required documents from your city, county, state or country.

 

You can start your online store by either one of these options:

 

  1. Look for a website designers and developers to design your own online store as you want it.
  2. Look for one of the ready template websites where you could choose your template and pay a small monthly fees that will include technical support Desktop, mobile and tablet friendly alongside with an email campaign services. (Depend on their packages and offers as some they might take a transaction fees as well).
  3. Sell your product on existing online markets.
  4. Free online stores.

Blogging is another free tool to advertise your website and let us not forget to make it SEO friendly by choosing the right keywords and implementation.
One more important point if you decide to open an online store which is the product delivery to your customers, you need to look for a local, national or international courier depends on your target market.

All of that should be included in your detailed business plan on how to deliver, Store, pack, customer service and all the other required details for your operation.

After you put everything on paper and review it, you will be good to go.

Different Types of Eyebrow Piercings

Eyebrow piercings are probably the most common facial piercings. Wondered what type of eyebrow piercing is available for you? Below is a list of different types of eyebrow piercings that are available to you, always ask your piercers first before getting them done.

Eyebrow piercings – This can be a piercing anywhere along the brow line on either side. It can be vertical (the most common) or horizontal.

Anti-Eyebrow piercings –Normally it is a small surface bar that is placed above the cheek bone or below the eyebrow. This piercing can be vertical or horizontal, depending on the person’s preference.

Eyelid Piercing – They are done through the eyelid, usually in the outside corner of the eye. They are quite uncommon due to the damage and risks they may cause. (Swelling, Pink Eye, Pain when opening/closing eye, Infection)

Brow piercings do have a habit of migrating if they’re not pierced deeply enough or the jewelry is too thin or heavy. They can be irritated by eyebrow hairs, so plucking the hairs closest to the entry points of the jewelry can be very helpful, especially if you’re experiencing swelling or tenderness in a healed piercing. Don’t use waxes or any other hair removers while you’re healing your piercing. Healing time can be all different depending on the person’s body and how they take care of them.

 

Curved Barbells CBR Horseshoes
Typical jewelry for eyebrows would be the curved barbells, circular barbells, and captive bead rings.

TRUE FACT: Hairdressers have an uncanny knack for combing over brow piercings. It’s a good idea to cover it with a bandage to protect it while having you’re hair done, trust me, happened to me a lot of times, and boy do they hurt!
