The first thing you need to think about is the visibility of the piercing. Facial and ear piercings are highly visible, which can cause a problem in terms of going to work or school for some people. If you are going to get a piercing, you need to make sure you are not going to be forced to take it out at your job or at school, otherwise, it will only close up.

Once you have figured out whether you have any restrictions in terms of the piercing you can get, you should then think about using a temporary piercing. You can clip a temporary ring or stick a temporary stud in place so that you can see what the piercing you are thinking about will look like. Make sure you look at yourself from various angles. Wear the piercing for a few days so that you can get a feel for what it would be like. This should help you to determine whether or not you suit the piercing, giving you a good idea as to whether you should go ahead with it or not. After all, you need to make sure the piercing you choose fits in with your own personal style and looks good with the clothing you wear. Often, a piercing looks different in terms of how we imagine it when compared with reality.

Aside from this, you should consider your best features, and your flaws too. This can help you determine where the best place for a facial piercing is. For example, you can easily use a nose piercing to cover up a squat nose or a bumpy nose. If you do not like the shape of your eyebrow, why not go for an eyebrow piercing and add a ring?

In addition to the suggestions that have already been mentioned, some other ways to come to the right decision including asking your friends for their opinions and taking a picture of yourself from different sides with and without your temporary piercing. You should also sleep on it – don’t rush into the decision!

Hopefully, you now feel like you are armed with all of the information you need to make the right decision for you about the type of piercing you should get. As you can see, there is a lot that needs to be considered, but by using this blog post as a step-by-step guide, you should come to the best option for you.
