What is Madison piercing
It is a new style of surface piercing where the front of the neck is perforated above the collar bone. Named after Madison Stone, a yesteryear film celebrity and tattoo artist, Madison piercing gives a stylish edge to your personality. With jewelry at the front of the neck, it looks fabulous while complementing your neck accessories.
Madison piercing procedure
Visit a professional piercing salon to get the piercing done. After the area is cleaned with an antiseptic solution, a light, sterilized needle is passed through the surface of the neck and then the jewelry is inserted.
Madison piercing aftercare
- Clean the pierced area with a cotton ball soaked in warm salt water
- Rinse the jewelry with mild soap while bathing
- Avoid wearing necklace to prevent the piercing from getting caught
- Wear or remove your clothes carefully to avoid injury
- Avoid wrapping your neck with a muffler or a scarf until the area heals completely
Madison piercing healing
It will take almost a year to undergo complete healing.
Madison piercing infection and complications
As with any surface piercing, the pierced region might severely swell and become red when infected. Get medical help if you notice a yellow pus discharge near the piercing. Since it has a high rejection rate, the jewelry should be appropriately placed. However, low placement of the piercing is not advisable as it might cause irritation. On the other hand, if the location of the piercing is too high, then the chances of migration and rejection increase. Most importantly, select good quality jewelry to prevent any undue damage that could result in scarring.
Madison piercing jewelry
Curved barbells, surface bars, and captive bead rings are some of the varieties for decking the front of the neck. Do not try experimenting with jewelry of your choice unless advised by your professional piercer.

In any sophisticated piercing studio, the price of the piercing will be around $40.
