May 26, 2006, Newsletter Issue #18: Bad Metals

Tip of the Week

There are several types of metal that you should avoid wearing after getting your body pierced. You should avoid the following: sterling silver, because it oxidizes when it contacts body tissues and other fluids; plated gold, because the plating can wear away to expose metal that reacts with human skin; and fake gold and other base metals, because they may corrode when exposed to fluids.
