Nape Piercing

A nape piercing is a surface piercing that goes through the skin on the back of the neck. This is a unisex piercing. The jewelry used is typically a surface piercing bar, barbell or curved barbell. The jewelry used should be made of surgical steel, titanium or 14 to 18 karat gold.

The healing time for a nape piercing is 4 to 8 months. Sense the nape is the back of the neck, it is best for a second person to clean the piercing if possible. If not, be very careful. Mix one teaspoon of salt with a glass of warm water. Soak a cotton ball in the solution and rub the piercing. Continue for five minutes, occasionally changing the cotton ball. It is important to keep hair off the jewelry so long hair should be kept in a bun until the nape is fully healed.

A nape piercing can have complications. Most nape piercings will cause a scar. The jewelry can also be rejected which is when the body forces the jewelry out through the skin. This is painful and result in a larger scar. A nape piercing can also migrate. This is when the jewelry shifts position.

It's important to make sure the chosen parlor is sterile and safe. If the piercing parlor is not sterile, it is possible to contract infections such as HIV and hepatitis. The first step at the piercing a parlor is paper work stating the piercing you are getting, the risks and aftercare instructions. If you are 16 years of age or younger, a guardian will need to sign approval.

The tools, jewelry and technician need to be sterilized. Some piercing parlors use reusable tools that have been previously sterilized. Most will use fresh, single use instruments. These instruments and the jewelry need to be in sealed packages that will be opened in front of you and the technician should always wear gloves.
