- Infection / Rejection
- Tearing from the use of jewellery that is too small
- Migration of the piercing
This is generally a low risk piercing with the main risk being tearing from the use of too small jewellery. 1.6mm or 14ga is the thinnest one would use and the length or diameter will depend greatly on the placement and the person.
Care needs to be taken for some time as this piercing heals, it needs to be kept clean and free from hair. If the client does not shave then some piercers recommend cutting the hair short around the piercing and regularly checking that no hairs are going into the piercing. Generally, a piercer does not shave the area as this can lead to shaving rashes and aggravate a new piercing.
