- THE EASE. The ease of access and completion of the ear piercing procedure is a factor in deciding about ear piercing in children. Children are notoriously anxious with procedures such as shots or even a routine check at a dental office or pediatrician. Thus in choosing an ear piercing technique, chose one that gives you the best change of the procedure being able to be completed within the shortest possible time.
- THE INFECTION. Piercings can indeed get infected. The more devitalized tissue (damages tissue), the more prone to infection the piercing will be. Also touching the piercings location especially on the first day is another major cause of infection after piercing.
