Want to know more about industrial piercing?
Industrial piercing, also known as scaffold piercing in UK, is a favorite piercing with both men as well as women. Typically, it is a double perforation of the upper ear cartilage, enabling a single straight piece of jewelry between two pierced holes. The two piercings – one fairly close to the head (known as anti-helix piercing), and another down the cartilage are situated on the opposite side of ear (known as helix piercing).
Industrial piercing involves a straight barbell inserted through the first piercing behind the ear, placed diagonally across the front of the upper cartilage, then passes through the second piercing, and eventually secured with a screw-on bead behind the second hole. Usually, this type of piercing takes time to settle down as the area of piercing is vulnerable to infections. Moreover, it is important to check that no hair products get into the piercing within the first fourteen days.
The major considerations for successful industrial piercing are essentially the sizing of jewelry and placement of the piercing. It is always better to use the highest quality body jewelry such as 18ct Solid Gold, Titanium, or 316L Surgical Stainless Steel and internally threaded barbells.
However, the risk involved in industrial piercing is negligible given proper precautions are taken during healing period. Some simple precautions such as cleaning the wound until it heals, not swimming, keeping the headphones, spectacles, telephones, or hats away from the piercing ear can help to avoid infections.
It is recommended not to touch the piercing without washing the hands with anti-bacterial soap or expose the fresh piercing bodily fluids or oral contacts. It is also important to check the accessories balls, dice, gem-ends etc. on jewelry for tightness at least once in a day. However, the best way to heal an industrial piercing is to “promote healthy lifestyle habits.”
