Common tattoo and piercing problems

There are many problems that can arise from having a tattoo or getting a piercing. It is important that you take your time and select the right place for you and that you feel comfortable having a tattoo or piercing. It is better to walk out rather than be left with possible scars or discomfort. Here is a list of some of the common problems that can arise:

Piercing injury

For many people piercing is a form of body art and beauty. Increasingly more areas of the body are being pierced than ever before which is opening up more problems. A piercing can easily hit a nerve or artery if caution is not taken, causing excessive bleeding, nerve damage or numbness. Post care is essential to any piercing although infection can also arise from unhygienic equipment.

Tattoo injury

Tattoos are an art and for some people hold special reminders on their skin. A tattoo is created by inserting a permanent ink into the layers of underlying skin. Due to the skin being broken a newly sterilised needle must be used with each client. Many types of blood infections can be transmitted by using an infected needle. It is paramount that the premises are kept clean and hygienic. Infections can occur in unclean environments and also from not being informed of the correct aftercare that a tattoo requires.
