What metals should you avoid after getting your body pierced?

Bad Metals

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.
