Well, we’re sharing the necessary information with you, and we’ll hope you’ll make a better choice for yourself after reading this!
WHAT IS FINGER PIERCING
Finger piercing is a rage right now and has taken the world of fashion by storm, quite literally. And, yes, it’s very unusual so it’s done at the base of the finger. With this a person can adorn a pierced finger with classy jewelry of their choice and flaunt their style – whatever it is. These days finger piercing is followed by many enthusiasts who are in search of something new and exciting!
HOW IS FINGER PIERCING CARRIED OUT
Just like for any other piercing, it is necessary to first search a salon where you’re comfortable and get piercings. And with this, here are something’s that you need to remember.
- Hygiene. I think that goes without saying. Make sure to choose someone who’s a professional. The process starts with cleaning of the finger to be pierced.
- Once it is cleaned thoroughly, the professional will apply a thick layer of numbing cream to your skin. This is done in order to make it painless.
- Now a surgical pen will be used by the artist to mark the entry and exit points. With the help of a hollow, sterilized device piercing will be made and the jewelry will be inserted into the perforation.
Here it is worth noticing that the location for finger piercing can vary from person to person. As per a famous professional Whitny Lapointe, “Everyone has a large tendon going down the center of each finger which makes it possible to move your fingers. There is not a lot of tissue to work with in this area. Which means the dermal may not sit very flush to the finger. Which then means it will protrude and get torn out. That can lead to hard scar tissue forming where it was. Then if the person actually gets a wedding ring, you have this nasty scar distracting from the elegant wedding ring. You are left with an open wound on the most used part of the body.”
WILL A FINGER PIERCING HURT?
That’s what the numbing cream is for. It’s applied to your finger you can expect a mild pain during the process. Though it is quite easy as compared to other sensitive areas, yet for those will lower threshold it can be painful.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET AN INFECTION
Well, that’s what a lot people are afraid of. A dermal piercing consists of an object being partially embedded in the skin but it also comes with a host of unique complications. There are digital nerves and arteries that supply the finger, and if you were to pierce through them it would be a big problem. There’s the risk of infection that comes with poking through the skin.
