|Dermal Piercing on each finger|
Hand piercings are gaining in popularity, but should be considered carefully before getting one done.
As the hand is a very active spot on your body, it becomes more difficult for a piercing to heal and much more likely to become infected. There is also an increased chance of rejection.
You have to be diligent about cleaning the piercing and keeping it clean.
Be sure to stick with an area of your hand that will not interfere with your lifestyle, from writing to fishing to painting. You do not want to have the piercing be subject to constant rubbing and pressure.
Also, gloves can cause problems with hand piercings. Can you handle living in mittens?
Hand piercings can be a captive ring in the webbing of your fingers, a surface piercing, or a dermal piercing.
