Piercing and Tattoos
Posted on: 12/03/2006
I really want to get my nose piercing, and is it true that if you take out a piercing, the hole will close up in 3 days and same for tongue, because i just need to re-assure my mother! If I get a tiny stud in my nose, the hole wont be noticeable will it? This would really help, please tell me its good news! Georgie
My vote is you take your mom down to the piercing studio you will use and ask all your questions, ask them to show you how they sterilize everything, and the little tiny needle they use, and when she s calm and reassured - get the piercing done.
I am not so positve about the tongue - be very careful - there can be a lot of dental damage from the jewelry ad infection is common.
