Good morning/afternoon/evening, wherever/whoever you are! I'm Alley, and this is my weekly blog, The Tea! Every Thursday, we get together to talk about something piercing-related that's been on my mind!
Let's keep it short-and-sweet today, bbs! Every now and then, I'll see something online about a medical issue solved by the miracle of piercings... While I do think that piercings are amazing in the sense that they can be therapeutic and a form of self-care, they should never be considered the solution for a medical ailment.
Disclaimer: A quick reminder that I am neither a medical or piercing professional!
- Does a daith piercing help with a migraine?
- Does your tragus piercing suppress your appetite?
- Is there a piercing that helps with depression?
- In most situations, the answer is no. Piercings, although fun, shouldn't be considered a solution for any medical issues... Although they might make you feel better via the placebo effect or as a general mood-booster!
- If piercings have helped you cope with your illnesses in the past, that's great! But they should never be thought of a legitimate medical advice. Head to a doctor for that!
Also... are multiple tragus piercings considered "traguses" or "tragii?!" More content below! ♡
Body jewelry is an incredibly personalized thing... I mean, think about it. You're literally putting the body jewelry inside of your body! For most of us pierced & modified folks, we look forward to curating custom looks that make us feel beautiful and amazing. It can be tough for a loved one to know how to buy a gift for us. Because there are so many body jewelry options, friends and family who aren't pierced might have a difficult time making a selection for us. That's why we put together our latest blog: Four (4) Ways To Give Body Jewelry As A Gift. We talk about sure-thing answers to give gifts to body jewelry lovers like us. Who wouldn't love a 14k gold nose ring, or one set with a stunning sparkly diamond? What about opal jewelry in all its fiery splendor? And never forget about the basics - anodized titanium body jewelry and bioplast body jewelry are great go-tos due to their biocompatibility (both materials are very inert). If all else fails, you can always snag a Body Candy gift card as well! Check out our blog and see what you think.
