How Many Piercings Can I Get At Once?

Nothing is more enviable than seeing someone rocking multiple piercings. The good news is you can have as many piercings as you want but not at the same time. This brings people to question, how many piercings can you get at once?

First of all, you have to understand that when you poke a needle in any part of your body, certain changes take place. You will experience discomfort, redness, and possibly swelling. Keep in mind that this is only for one piercing. So imagine what your body will go through if you get too many of them.

Let’s explore what professional piercers have to say about getting multiple piercings:


Can You Get Multiple Piercings in One Session?

Believe it or not, you can get more than one piercing in a single session. How many piercings you can get relies on your pain tolerance. How much pain can you handle? The location of the piercings also matters as well as your general health.

It’s also important to listen to your body and let your piercer know what you’re feeling. As mentioned earlier, a piercing is an open wound, and when you have an open wound, your body will undergo certain physical changes.

Some of the symptoms you may experience while getting a piercing are nausea, dizziness, and cold sweats. Usually, it’s because of low blood sugar so make sure you eat and hydrate before the session to avoid these issues.

When you’re feeling dizzy, don’t be afraid to inform your piercer so you can have a break. The dizziness subsides typically after you’ve had a glass of water or get a snack. If you don’t feel well, don’t push yourself. You can always get the next piercing the following day or whenever you feel better.

What Should You Do After Getting Multiple Piercings?

Caring for multiple piercings is pretty much the same as caring for a single piercing. You just need to clean them at least two times a day to ensure they don’t get infected.

The last thing you want is to get multiple infected piercings. Yikes! It’s also normal to experience substantial swelling, especially if the piercings are near to each other, which is why we don’t suggest you get piercings that are too near on the same day, as this can result in more discomfort during the first few days of the healing process.
