With the increase craze for the body piercing, people are going for unusual body piercing and one such type is the clavicle piercing. Though it is very stylish to have clavicle piercing on the body but it is one of the rarest kind of piercing and considered to be quite dangerous one. The young people around the world are going for this new type of body piercing which is done just below the collar bone and it pierces the inner body cavity. The chances of getting infection in this kind of body piercing are quite high and it is very painful too. Before one goes for clavicle piercing, one should choose a highly experienced professional and should also talk to those who have already done it to share their experience. As this piercing goes to the inner cavity of the body, there can be damage done to the arteries and nerves of that area. The piercing cost of the Clavicle piercing is quite high and the jewelry used for this piercing is generally the curved barbell of about 3 inches long so that the piercing could come out from the other side of the collar bone.

These were my “sternum bars”. Warning, they are VERY difficult to care for and left terrible scars. I personally don’t mind the scaring but they never really healed or stopped hurting.
