Check out this fun short video of Jalesa getting her industrial pierced by James from American Skin Art. And keep your eyes peeled for the needle insertions at around the 15 and 25 second marks.
As with all professional piercings, the area around the piercing site is first thoroughly cleaned. Then a set of guidelines are marked where both piercings will be, including a connecting line to assist with the needle’s angle. Next, a pair of forceps are clamped into place, and the outer portion of the ear is swiftly punctured. Our piercee is instructed to take one more deep breath, and the needle is pushed through for the second and final time. Finally, the needle is chased with an extra long industrial barbell, and Jalesa is ready to show the world her new piercing.
Though often referred to as an “industrial piercing,” this type of modification is actually a set of two piercings, interconnected across the ear with a single piece of body jewelry. For this reason the industrial may take longer to heal completely than an average helix piercing, but it’s definitely well worth the wait. With proper attention and aftercare, healing will be straightforward, and you’ll be left with a versatile and interesting new mod.
