The 90s Are Back - Scaffold Piercing- Industrial Piercing

What is the process of an industrial piercing?

Getting a Scaffold Piercing /industrial piercing isn't much different than piercing any other part of your ear. The deed is done with a hollow needle, and the biggest difference is that the needle goes through multiple points in a straight line, followed by the jewellery. However, every industrial piercing is performed slightly differently, "due to the piercer's preference and anatomy that causes different techniques to be necessary."

How painful is it to get an industrial piercing?

Pain is subjective; how painful an experience is to one person versus another really depends on an individual's pain tolerance. industrial piercing is generally more painful than other cartilage piercings because it's done at a larger gauge and through multiple points at once.

How should you clean your industrial piercing?

In a word: Diligently. you should be cleaning your industrial piercing twice a day, same as you would with any other cartilage piercing. Use a gentle, wound wash saline and do this for at least three to six months. After six months, you only have to wash the area once a day.

Now that you've learnt about the Scaffold Piercing will it be your next piercing ?
