  • yes you can. but industrial, i would be careful with. mine took a long time to heal, like a yr and a half. and i think it gets infected easily.

  • you can, but shouldn't. just like with tattoos. they advise to wait till after delivery to prevent passing any infections you may get during the piercing. i'd wait. not worth the risk imo. but i guess it's a personal choice.

  • I agree with the PP's who stated that maybe you can but you shouldn't. Most reputable shops wouldn't do it, not just because of the risk of infection but also because it is likely to have a hard time healing.
