For many, getting re-pierced can be a stressful issue but tons of people choose to do in in pursuit of their perfect piercing. This process isn’t discouraged in any way, though many people report an increase in pain when getting repeat piercings in the same area as before. For some people, the reason why someone would get the same area pierced twice can seem confusing however there are many reasons why people may take out a piercing:
- Change in dress code at work/ school etc.
- May need to take them out for an extended hospital visit
- Change in personal style
It can also be the case that some piercing’s (such as the nostril) can close over incredibly quickly. This may mean that a piercing that has only been out for a few hours will have closed over enough for the jewellery to be impossible to re-insert. In this case then you shouldn’t force the jewellery through and instead wait for the piercing to fully heal before you think about getting a repeat piercing.
When you’re getting re-pierced it’s important to remember that your new piercing will be travelling through scar tissue left by the pervious piercing. This will almost always result in a more painful piercing as there will be more resistance. If this previous piercing isn’t fully healed then this can be even more discomforting . Certain areas are more prone to reject than others and the amount of scar tissue created can vary widely from person to person. For instance, many people find that their navel piercings and eyebrow piercings reject and choose to get the piercing done again despite the increased chances that this piercing will also reject. Many people get piercings for personal reasons and can even become quite sentimental about their body modifications, which obviously encourages repeat piercings.
