What is a body piercing
This is exactly what it sounds like. But what does it sound like? Basically, a body piercing is when a skin is punctured by a gun or a needle. Once the puncture or hole is made then we place a piece of jewelry into that hole.
As simple as that! We pierce almost everywhere, nose, ear, belly button, nostril, lip, tongue, eyebrow, tongue, septum, nipple and dermals. You can check out our piercings portfolio here. We don't do genital piercings though.
How is a body piercing done?
The piercing process at Vida Loca Piercings starts with you being met by one of our experienced and friendly piercers Jenny or Megan. From there, you will go into the piercing room, the area will be cleaned up, you will be marked up (a dot put in the appropriate place) in the agreed place to verify your piercing location.
After this, our friendly piercer will take you through the process before lying you down and getting you comfortable. You will be pierced with either a needle or a piercing gun. We only use a piercing gun for lobes as it can shatter cartilage. All our needles are single use cannula needles. Any claps we used are sterilised through the autoclave.
Things you need know for your piercing
There are a few things we want you to bring with you when you get pierced.
Are piercings harmful to the body?
Considering you are putting a needle through your body and creating a hole, this could cause some harm to the body. It can result in bleeding, swelling, scarring or maybe an infection if your body has a reaction to the jewelry
But for the most part piercings do not harm the body, depending on your pain threshold it could cause you to winse a little. We get lots of emails about enquiries and for the most part are about whether or not the piercing hurts. This is totally subjective as some people are fine with needles and have a great threshold.
To help you out we have put together a list of the painful places for a piercing from most to least.
