Of course, it’s important to remember that, while all piercings take some extra TLC, every person will heal at their own rate, and environmental factors like location and elevation also affect average healing times, according to Tom Gottschalk, a piercer at Dorje Adornments in Rochester, NY.
As most people with piercings know, different piercings cause different struggles, including trouble sleeping, general discomfort, eating difficulty, and the inability to take a shower without snagging your loofah on all your latest adornments (pro tip: just throw that thing away! ).
Some piercings can take as long as 18 months to heal! https://t.co/xrPGDqAosJ— POPSUGAR Beauty (@POPSUGARBeauty) March 24, 2020
