ANATOMY CHECKS & WHY THEY’RE IMPORTANT 

THE BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT BEING HUMAN IS WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, WE COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES. WITH THAT A PIERCING THAT MIGHT WORK WELL FOR ONE MIGHT NOT WORK FOR ANOTHER THIS IS WHY ANATOMY CHECKS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR PRE-PIERCING CONSULTATION (WALK-IN FRIENDLY) BELOW WE WILL DISCUSS COMMON PIERCINGS THAT REQUIRE ANATOMY CHECKS.

NAVEL PIERCINGS 

 

TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING ARE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PIERCINGS TO THIS DAY, IT IS GENERALLY WHAT SOMEONE ENVISION WHEN THEY MENTION A NAVEL PIERCING. BUT NOT ALL NAVELS ARE SHAPED TO ACCOMMODATE WHATS KNOWN AS A “TRADITIONAL NAVEL” PIERCING. IN ORDER FOR YOU TO BE A CANDIDATE FOR THIS PIERCING YOU MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING. FOR STARTERS THIS NAVEL PIERCING REQUIRES YOU TO HAVE A DEFINITIVE “LIP” WHICH IS THAT FLAP OF SKIN THAT IS RIGHT ABOVE INDENTATION OF YOUR NAVEL. THIS LIP MUST HAVE ENOUGH SPACE AT THE BOTTOM (INSIDE) OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON IN ORDER FOR YOUR JEWELRY TO SIT COMFORTABLY. IF YOUR NAVEL IS LACKING THIS TYPE OF ANATOMY OTHER PIERCING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE.

 

A LOWER NAVEL PIERCING IS A UNIQUE AND TRENDY PIERCING ALTERNATIVE TO A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING. JUST LIKE A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING THERE IS A CERTAIN ANATOMY THATS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THEM. LIKE WE PREVIOUSLY EXPLAINED WITH TRADITIONAL NAVEL REQUIRING A “LIP” SO DOES A LOWER NAVEL BUT NATURALLY THIS LIP WILL SIT ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON VERSUS THE TOP. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE THE CLIENT DID NOT HAVE A TOP LIP TO SUPPORT A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING BUT DID IN FACT HAVE ONE FOR A LOWER NAVEL. WITH A CONSULTATION WITH OUR WONDERFUL PIERCERS WE CAN MAKE SURE YOU GET A NAVEL PIERCING THAT CAN NOT ONLY LOOK GREAT BUT HAVE ITS BEST CHANCE IN HEALING. 

 

A FLOATING NAVEL IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE LEAST KNOWN OUT OF ITS NAVEL PIERCING SIBLINGS THIS IS BECAUSE A FLOATING NAVEL IS PREFORMED JUST LIKE A TRADITIONAL ONE, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BEING JEWELRY SELECTED. WITH A TRADITIONAL NAVEL WE MENTIONED THAT THERE MUST BE ENOUGH ROOM INSIDE THE NAVEL SO THAT JEWELRY SITS COMFORTABLY. SOMETIMES SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE WHATS KNOWN AS AN “INNY” AND AN “OUTTIE” IF THE “OUTTY” OF THE NAVEL IS GOING TO PUSH AGAINST THE JEWELRY WE CONSIDER DOING A FLOATING NAVEL. A FLOATING NAVEL IS ALSO A PRIME CHOICE IF YOU HAVE AN ELONGATED NAVEL OR IF WHEN YOU BEND OVER/SIT YOUR NAVEL COLLAPSES INTO ITSELF. IF YOUR NAVEL DOES THAT AND YOU WERE TO  WEAR “TRADITIONAL” NAVEL JEWELRY IT CAN PUSH ON IT AND CAUSE A LOT OF DISCOMFORT WHILE HINDERING YOUR HEALING. 

INDUSTRIAL PIERCINGS 

 

INDUSTRIAL PIERCINGS HAVE BEEN QUITE POPULAR FOR MANY YEARS AND WHILE WE LOVE THESE PIERCINGS JUST AS MUCH AS YOU DO THEY ARE EXTREMELY ANATOMY BASED PIERCINGS. IF THESE PIERCINGS ARE PREFORMED ON UNSUITABLE ANATOMY THEY CAN CAUSE A MULTITUDE OF PROBLEMS AND EVEN REJECT OUT OF THE EAR. WHEN DOING A CONSULTATION WE HAVE TO BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A PROMINENT OUTER HELIX RIDGE. IF YOUR ANATOMY LACKS SAID RIDGE AND BEGINS TO GO FLAT WHERE WE WOULD PIERCE YOUR EAR YOU WOULD BE CONSIDERED NOT A CANDIDATE FOR A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING, BUT GOOD NEWS IS THERES AN ALTERNATIVE! 

 

WHEN YOUR ANATOMY ISN’T SUITED FOR A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING YOU MIGHT CONSIDER THE ALTERNATIVE OR WHATS KNOW AS A CUSTOM BEND INDUSTRIAL. WHEN A EAR DOESN’T HAVE A PROMINENT OUTER RIDGE AND BEGINS TO FLATTEN OUT ITS BEST WE CREATE A CUSTOM BEND BARBELL. CREATING AN L LIKE BEND OR BEND SUITED FOR YOUR EAR IT WILL ALLOW US TO GIVE YOU A PIERCING THAT APPEARS LIKE A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING BUT WITH THE ACTUAL CAPABILITIES OF HEALING AND NOT PUTTING ANY UNNECESSARY PRESSURE ON YOUR EAR.
