The more assessable to blood flow any area of the body means the less time it will take to heal. This means, unfortunately, that some of the piercings we love like industrial piercings and the bridge will take longer to heal! But that won’t stop us, will it? If healing times are a deal breaker, or if you just want to know what to expect, keep reading to find out the top five piercing healing times that take the longest!
Industrial Piercings & Other Cartilage Piercings
The healing time for the industrial piercings is from 6 months up to a year.
But why is this calculation vary so much? There’s a big difference between three months and twelve! But where ever I looked, no one could simplify the healing time of cartilage piercings into a more specific number.
This is because the cartilage is so vast. There are so many places to pierce in the cartilage and the cartilage can be completely different from person to person – thicker or thinner, etc. That’s why experts say that a tragus piercing may take up to eight months to heal, while a helix piercing may take up to ten.
In the end, if you do choose to get this sort of piercing, be aware that it will mean a lot of aftercare!
The healing time for the navel piercing is from nine months up to a year.
Now we love navel piercings, but those who do have them do spend a lot of time complaining about the healing process. It’s no wonder. Just imagine healing a tongue piercing for an entire year! While sure, it isn’t quite the same idea, it’s still a long haul of a process.
