In ancient times, people often punched holes in their ears as part of the religious tradition. It is also mentioned in the Bible. This tradition is common in the ancient cultures of certain Asian and African countries.
In the early 19th century, pierced earrings were limited to women, but later men also adopted pierced earrings, which have become an important part of their fashion statement. Ear piercing is the most common form of body piercing.
It can be done in different positions of your ears. Some common types of perforation are discussed below:
1) Earlobe Perforation:
Compared to other types of perforation, the healing time of the earlobe perforation is much shorter. Usually, it takes 5 to 6 weeks after such a perforation. This makes it the most common form.
2) Horizontal Ear Puncture:
When people want to wear barbell on their ears, they can use horizontal ear puncture. It parallels the earlobe level.
3) Wear the hook:
The hook is located at the top of the ear. This is one of the thickest parts of the ear. Not everyone can perform the puncture injection because the repair takes a lot of time and the puncture takes up relatively more space.
4) Some other types of industrial, spiral, daith, tragus and reverse tragus perforations, etc.
Infection after a puncture is very common, so good care is needed to avoid discomfort. The perforated area should be washed with saline
1-2 times a day and do not touch the perforated area with dirty or unwashed hands over and over again.
Ear piercing may not be suitable for everyone. It depends on the person’s body and facial structure.
Ear piercing is common in some cultures and may not be relevant to other cultures. Take all factors into account when piercing.
