2. Make an Appointment
As simple as it is, make an appointment and wait for the exciting day to come.
3. Eat a Good Meal and Stay Hydrated
Eating well around four hours beforehand and staying hydrated are the greatest ways to calm your nerves before getting your ears pierced. Your stomach will feel better as a result, and you'll avoid being too stressed out. The piercing will heal more quickly with the aid of healthy nutrients in your body, which will lessen any discomfort you may experience and ultimately make you happier.
4. Choose the Studs You Want
The success of your piercing depends on the pair of beginning studs you choose. It's crucial to pick a set of studs that go with any outfit because you'll wear them for roughly six weeks. The first pair of studs you buy should always be made of a hypoallergenic metal. You cannot be certain that you are not allergic because you have never had a piercing. If you do experience a reaction, that could delay healing and result in a great deal of unnecessary agony. Sterling silver, platinum, titanium, copper, and stainless steel are a few hypoallergenic metals. Additionally, these studs will be of greater quality, so they'll look amazing while you flaunt your new jewelry around the campus.
