Can you sleep on newly pierced ears?

Yes, you can sleep on newly pierced ears. Typically, if you're just getting them done, they come with hypoallergenic earrings. So you can wear them for several weeks.

You must never take out a new piercing while you're sleeping or even when you're getting dressed, because the skin around the piercing will heal slowly and could open up again if the skin is irritated.

A regular deep tissue massage will relieve tension and prevent muscle spasms. It also helps increase circulation and blood flow.

After you've had your piercing for a while, you may notice that it's a bit uncomfortable and you just need some sleep.

After many nights of sleeping on your freshly pierced ears, be sure to make an appointment with your piercer for cleaning and checkups.

Sleeping with earrings on for an extended period can cause the bars to migrate or change the angles of your earrings.

You should know that earring holes can easily be damaged by this method. In addition to damaging the earring hole, this can also cause your earring to fall out.

This may cause problems for your body as well.

After the angle changes, it may be challenging to find an earring that will sit nicely and flat.

For this reason, it is better to use a travel pillow when sleeping to keep your piercings safe.

You should always keep your body jewelry away from your pillow when you sleep at night. They can cause nasty infections if they get caught in your hair.

Do you sleep with ball back earrings on when first pierced?

Ear piercing may close up faster than expected, so make sure to wear your first earrings in until they're healed.

The healing process for any kind of piercing, whether a traditional piercing or a tattoo, can vary from person to person, and may depend on the type of piercing you get.

Well, if that's the case, then you can also switch to surgical steel which is often hypoallergenic.



Some piercings may take a while to heal completely.

Some piercings may take a long time to heal, but once healed, they'll last forever.

You should wait until your piercing is healed before sleeping on it, no matter how little pain it is causing you.
