Piercings that penetrate cartilage are often male chastity piercing pierced one or two gauges larger naval piercing than the jewelry, to reduce pressure on the healing piercing, allowing for a fistula to nevada carson city piercing properly form.

Indwelling Cannula Method

Many European (and other) piercers use a needle containing a cannula (hollow plastic piercing shops tube placed at the piercing yourself end of the needle, also see catheter).

This method reduces the chance belly button piercing pictures of the jewelry slipping during the insertion procedure, and also protects the fresh piercing from possible irritation from body piercing and prince albert external threading (if used) during initial insertion.

Pierce and Taper

Similar to the standard method, this is a more advanced technique, sometimes used to pierce where ear lobe piercing large gauge initial jewelry is desired. In this method, after the needle is gallery piercing inserted and the genital piercing procedures opening is created, a tapered steel bar (usually one gauge larger than that gold piercings of the needle at the large end) is inserted instead of initial jewelry. Then the infected cartilage piercing jewelry is pushed through the opening, following the tapered bar. The success of infected piercings this method is dependent on the elasticity of the skin in the area being pierced, the skill of the piercer and navel piercing pictures the type of piercing being done.


Main article: Scalpelling

In this navel piercing questions method, a medical scalpel is used to cut a piercing photos slit, allowing for the insertion of large gauge jewelry.

However, in today's world of body piercing, most christina piercings manufacturers of quality body jewelry agree that if externally threaded jewelry is going to be crazy piercings used, it must have a tapered end on it so that at the very eye piercing least, the threads can slip into the back end of the needle, thus protecting flesh piercing the piercees tissue from threading during the initial piercing.

Arguments have infected piercing arisen that using internally threaded jewelry can be just as, if not more, dangerous for the maryland salisbury piercing body as occasionally.
