Body Piercing Healing Times
General healing times for piercing sites
Each body piercing site has its own normal healing time. Common piercing sites usually heal within the general time frames listed below. Healing depends on many things, including how big the piercing is, how thick the tissue is at the site, and your ability to heal.
A piercing may not heal as fast if it gets infected or irritated or if scar tissue forms. You may need to see your doctor if your piercing does not seem to be healing.
