Itchy Earring Piercing: Itchy ear piercings are a common concern that many individuals encounter, especially during the healing process.

The itching sensation can be attributed to the body's natural response to the healing wound. However, constant scratching or irritation can lead to complications and hinder the healing progress.

To soothe discomfort and maintain the beauty of your piercings, follow these expert tips:


            1. Cleanse Gently: Use a saline solution or warm water to clean your piercings twice a day. Gently pat the area dry with a clean, soft cloth.
  1. Avoid Touching: Refrain from touching or twisting the earrings, as this can introduce bacteria and prolong the healing process.
  3. Hypoallergenic Materials: Opt for hypoallergenic earrings like our collection at Galleria Armadoro. Hypoallergenic materials reduce the risk of irritation and itching.
  5. Lubricate with Care: If dryness is causing itching, apply a small amount of a recommended piercing aftercare product to moisturize the area.

By following these steps, you can minimize discomfort and promote a smoother healing experience for your ear piercings.


Earring Placement: Proper earring placement is an art that balances both comfort and style. An incorrectly placed earring can lead to irritation, discomfort, and an imbalanced appearance.

To ensure your earrings are positioned perfectly, consider the following guidelines:


  1. Professional Piercing: Choose a reputable and experienced piercer to perform your ear piercing. A skilled professional will ensure accurate placement and reduce the risk of complications.
  3. Symmetry Matters: If you're getting multiple piercings, ensure they are symmetrical and harmonize with your ear's natural contours.
  5. Avoid Cartilage Mishaps: Cartilage piercings require precise placement to avoid unnecessary pain and complications. Consult our ear piercing map for insights into different cartilage piercing options.
  7. Comfort and Aesthetics: Consider both your comfort and aesthetic preferences. Earrings that are too tight or too loose can cause irritation or even fall out.

Taking the time to get your earring placement right ensures a comfortable, balanced, and visually appealing result that enhances your Ear Story.


Why Do Ear Piercings Smell?: While ear piercings are a beautiful form of self-expression, they can sometimes come with an unexpected concern: an unpleasant smell.

The reasons behind this phenomenon can vary, but they often involve a buildup of dead skin cells, oils, and bacteria around the piercing site.

To prevent and address this issue, here's what you can do:


  1. Regular Cleaning: Clean your piercings as recommended by your piercer using a saline solution or an appropriate aftercare product.
  3. Gentle Exfoliation: Use a mild exfoliator to remove dead skin cells around the piercing area, promoting better hygiene.
  5. Breathable Jewelry: Opt for jewelry made from hypoallergenic materials like those from Galleria Armadoro to minimize the chances of bacterial growth.
  7. Proper Hygiene: Keep the area around your piercings clean and dry. Avoid using heavy lotions or creams that might clog the pores.

By incorporating these practices into your routine, you can maintain the freshness and beauty of your ear piercings while minimizing any unwanted odors.

Remember, proper aftercare, precise earring placement, and choosing hypoallergenic materials are key factors in ensuring your Ear Story unfolds beautifully, free from discomfort or complications.
