Body piercing is, like tattooing, a popular form of body modification among college students. Students may pierce their noses, ears, nipples, navels, lips, and genitals. These piercings are safe when done by knowledgeable, trained piercers using sterile equipment and well cared for by you, following the aftercare instructions your piercer will give you.
Because piercing equipment pierces the skin and comes into contact with blood, unsafe or nonsterile piercing equipment can spread HIV and/or Hepatitis C, both of which are lifelong, chronic illnesses.
