So, I’ve been wanting to get a bridge for a while now. it wasn’t on my usual piercers price list, so I called and asked if he performed the piercing. He told me that he doesn’t because a surgeon told him it could lead to a brain-infection! I’m usually very pleased with his work, so I’m kinda confused and not sure if I want the piercing or not. I’ve checked with other piercers in my area and they all do the piercing. I’m starting to think that my piercer just paranoid. What should I do?

I’ve heard some good ones before, but this is a new favorite.

While technically your piercer is correct, this would also make it true for any body piercing. A body piercing is a hole into your body, this is a nice big welcoming invitation for bacteria. Bacteria entering your body through a cut or wound is what creates an infection. An infection that is left untreated can spread to the surrounding areas as well as travel through your bloodstream and ending up anywhere in your body.

That being said the likely hood of such an infection is minimal at best. As long as you follow the aftercare instructions set forth by your piercer you should be just fine.
