awe well thanks for the kind words!!
as far as cheek piercings, i have lots to tell you and you have lots to learn! as far as me being lucky, this is correct. i am very lucky, their one of the harder piercings to heal. a friend of mine who’s a body piercer had hers done and has had hers pierced before as well. her and all her clients had negative reactions and had to take them out…
basically, all the dangers you have to look out for are that you’re not just piercings through skin, you’re piercing through alot of thick layers of muscle. abscesses are very common as well, its a sort of growth youll get around the piercing that will basically swell up, turn purple, and be full of pressured pus. i had a small abscess grow on my right one but thankfully it went away. depending on the person, your body might just not want them in at all. so you’re body will reject, meaning theyll bleed frequently weeks after their pierced, theyll be painful, swollen, and really irritated. this is really common. as well as of course the risks of chipping and/or cracking teeth on them, this is highly possible within the first couple weeks of getting them because you’ll have them pierced with long bars (leaves room for swelling) and youre mouth wont be used to them so you will chomp down on them quite a bit (i did).
now you have 2 options. you can either get them pierced straight through your cheeks (which is how mine are) or you can get the microdermal implants. the implants are alot safer and will most likely be what a piercer would prefer to do. the only problem with dermals, is you run the risk of them migrating, as well as they will 9 times out of ten leave scars. if you get dermals done, id recommend finding a piercer that does them with needle techniques NOT biopsy punches, punches remove skin which will usually cause more scaring, obviously.
thats about all i can think of at the moment to inform you with, there’s probably a few other things i coulc tell you but they’re slipping my mind at the moment.
now one more thing i’d like to STRESS to you ,is that i AM NOT a body piercer, so what im telling you if based on what i’ve been told by other piercers, as well personal experience.
if there is anything AT ALL that i didn’t clarify for you, or any questions that i didnt answer for you, please feel free to ask me im more then happy to help!! =)
