Anyways enough with music, let’s get back to the topic of discussion.
How many piercings do you have?
This afternoon I thought I’d treat myself to another ear piercing. The old one I had closed up years ago. Now both ears are twinning and it looks symmetrical. Originally, I planned to do it at Claire’s accessories, but unfortunately the lady who conducted the practice was nowhere to be found. I was thinking to go to another area nearby, but I remembered another piercing shop in the location I was in.
So, I went there instead. I was slightly apprehensive but I knew I was going to be pleased with the result. The whole process was quite quick (this is helpful when you have a slight fear of needles) and not too expensive (so it’s affordable). The normal price is between £15-20. Today was one of those indulgent days, trying not to go overboard because it is very easy to get carried away. I had to learn to hold myself back whenever I get incited to do more.
After, it led me to look into the benefits of piercing and if there were any. It’s never something I’ve looked into before. Sometimes you just have to be random and shake things up a bit. I’m going to put some links to the information I’ve found below. However, allegedly it does have some health and physical benefits. One article compared it to getting acupuncture. I can see the similarities and how it would work similar.
Acupuncture – NHS is “a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.”. Many people use this treatment to relieve stress as it distracts your attention to another place of the body. Similar to piercings, they use needles in a certain proximity.
Here are the links to the ‘benefits’:

- Livestrong – 10 Reasons To Get A Nose Ring (only if you want to or considering it)

The physical benefits are clear to see, but health benefits in one way yes; can give you a mood boost. Especially, if you’re a piercing lover, it can satisfy you in a weird way. Possibly it’s due to it’s aesthetically pleasing nature. The decision is made by you depending on the way you look at it.
Thank you for taking time to read this post and enjoy the rest of your day☺️
