Some say that piercing your earlobes for earrings can cause blindness. Should I let my 10-year-old daughter have her earlobes pierced?
Some serious blood-borne diseases, such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, tetanus and HIV, can be the possible risk of piercing without sterile procedures. Regardless of the location, improper piercing can also cause infection, further leading to blood poisoning, skin cysts, scars and other disfigurements.
In addition, certain areas of piercing come with greater risk. For ear lobe, which contains mostly cartilage, it is fairly safe as there is little blood supply.
However, eyebrow is a risky area because it harbors skin and hair bacteria that lead to infection. If the infection is spread from the eyebrow to the eye area through the rich blood supply, there can be blindness or deeper infection into the brain.
If you plan to pierce any part of your body, make sure that you choose a professional studio that utilizes a new, sterile needle, rather than a piercing gun for piercing to reduce the risk of AIDS and Hepatitis B, which are both blood-borne. Piercing guns are not advisable, as they cannot be sterilized completely.
Piercing is not enough for physical beauty. Physical beauty should also comes with good skin.
