Can we fly on a plane after getting a piercing?
While it is allowed to fly on a plane after you get a piercing, it is recommended to get a piercing after you come back instead to avoid injuring your piercing during the course of travel. There will also be a longer time for the piercing to get stabilized, and it would be easier to handle any possible discomfort and problems after piercing. If you need to study abroad or take a long-haul flight, you may consider bringing a small bottle of care solution on board for cleaning and sterilizing purpose.
How thick is the piercing-earring post?
ISABELLA use earrings with posts of a standard thickness of 0.75mm. This not only ensures the proper air flow over the piercings, but the piercings would also appear thin and less conspicuous. If piercing-earrings with thicker posts are used, the large piercing hole might be easily noticeable whenever you are not wearing any earrings after its stable formation. The ease to put on earrings relies on whether the position and the angle of piercing are precise enough, as precision piercing technology advocates balance and comfort. Besides, a healthy piercing would make it easier to put on earrings too.
To sustain a healthy piercing, maintain proper aftercare steps to reduce the chance of infection. During the healing process, gently rotate the earrings so that a perfect round piercing can be formed and make it easier to wear earrings afterwards. After the healthy formation of the piercing, you can choose to wear earrings with thicker or thinner posts. Be aware that piercing may stretch or enlarge as a result of wearing heavy earrings or those with thick posts for a long time. Therefore you may consider light-weighted earrings with thin posts in order to protect your delicate piercing as your lifelong partner.
Why do some people wear earrings that appear slanted and uneven?
Each individual has a unique ear shape and structure, even the left one can differ a lot from its counterpart. It is thus important to customize the ear-piercing position according to the ear shape and needs of individuals. As the symmetry and the leveling of the piercing holes would undoubtedly affect the overall appeal, professional ear-piercing technology depends heavily upon the principle of precision.
