Piercing in Logia Barcelona
Piercing is the practice of perforating a part of the body in order to adorn it with special jewellery for that use. Piercings are a way of body modification and show as well personal values as religious, spirituals and cultural ones. Even if, they have increased their importance as a face and body adornment.
All along the history, piercings has been practiced mainly on women, as a little howl on the earlobe when they are children; however, in other cultures, and specially nowadays in the occidental culture, it is practised on both sex and also other parts of the body are perforated.
We make four main kinds of piercings in Barcelona: Facial piercings, body piercings, orals and genital ones.
Generally, getting a piercing entails only a momentary pain, and it almost never goes worse than that.
It is important not to take aspirin or any other analgesic that could affect to the blood coagulation because it will cause that the piercing will take longer to heal and recover.
The material used must be sterilized previously and it may be used only once.
The first wear of the piercing is made by a titanium piece as it provides the wound a better healing.
After making the piercing in very important not to take long baths during the following two months. Sun exposure is also harmful since ultraviolet rays are hazardous for skin disinfection and doesn’t provide the healing. Depending on the area of the body where the piercing has been made, the healing process could take more than two months.
Some of the problems that getting pierced could take are the nerves or blood vessel damage, tear caused by the jewellery used or body rejection, as well as allergic reactions.

There are many ways to perforate these areas and many kinds of jewels to decorate them.
