Healing Piercings: The Best Jewelry Choices for a Smooth Recovery

Back then, butterfly backings were about all you could find! Many piercers would even do fresh piercings with them! This ultimately lead to many people having infections or skin reactions while in the healing process. Although butterfly backs are user friendly and easy to change out, there's more cons than pros of these earring backs. But maybe you already found that out yourself!

Butterfly earring backs hold on to scabs, debris, and bacteria when put into a fresh healing piercing. Flat back studs lay flat on the skin, stopping bacteria build up and gunk around the edges. With the flat end laying flat on the skin, this offers a migration proof way to heal your piercing. Sometimes, when body jewelry is too small or large, it can run the risk of a piercing migration! That means your hole might not heal in the exact same spot your were initially pierced in! it can start moving or tugging, forcing the piercing hole to move. Flatback studs fit specific piercings and are unlikely to move or fall out. This makes this one of the healthiest styles to wear for a fresh piercing!
