Piercing in Barcelona


Piercing of the body as a form of decorating it has recently become more and more popular. It is no longer the domain of subcultures and young people. Currently, the earring in an unusual place is an interesting accent, adding an alternative character to our image.
Where does the art of piercing come from?


The first mention of body piercing dates back to ancient times. In Egypt, Greece and Rome, the appropriate piercings had their symbolic dimension. And so, in the state of the pharaohs, the royal family wore navel rings, while in Rome the earring was a sign of wealth, and pierced nipples were the domain of warriors, which meant bravery and courage.

Piercing was also known in the tribes of the Americas, in the Mayan and Aztec culture. In Elizabethan times it was widespread among seafarers along with tattoos, and in the Victorian period the aristocracy also fashioned this way of decorating, especially of intimate body parts.

Christianity denied piercing, calling it a barbaric and pagan custom.In the 70s of the 20th century, this art revived with the advent of the general body art trend. Currently, piercing is becoming more common and tolerated among the public. A piercing in an unusual place is treated as an expression of the individuality and creativity of the holder.


Only body piercing performed by a professional, experienced piercer can be fully correct and safe. A piercer is a person who, with his experience and knowledge usually gained from other practitioners, guarantees the correct placement of the piercing.

The body is punctured with a suitable thickness of piercing needle. Only such a tool allows for complete sterility of the procedure and the least damage in body tissues.

Pistols popular with ear lobes are not suitable for any other part of the body, and in this case it is better to put on a sterile needle.

Correctly performed surgery is almost painless. The degree of feeling the interference in the body depends on the innervation of the given part and the skills of the piercer.

The puncture lasts about two minutes with the jewlery inserted. You can decorate almost any part of the body, a professional selects the right jewelry and its shape and type. Initially, earrings made of bioplastic, surgical steel, titanium and Teflon are used due to their inertness to the body.


Correctly performed piercing is one thing, but it also depends a lot on how you take care of fresh piercings. It must be remembered that this is an open wound that is exposed to the harmful effects of pollution. Infections in these places can lead to serious illness and deformities of body tissues.

The healing time depends on the puncture site and the individual characteristics of the body. Normal sensations at this time are slight pain and itching. Leaks of lymphatic fluid may appear at the piercing mouths. The fresh earring is washed with saline or antyseptic until completely healed. You should avoid soaking the wound in the bath for a long time and refrain from visiting the pool. You should not abuse caffeine, alcohol and aspirin because they can raise blood pressure and thin the blood.

Although piercing is the least invasive type of body modification, and the traces of the earring are virtually invisible, any piercing decision should be seriously considered. The treatment should be performed in a trusted, recommended and professional place. You should also take care of hygiene
