The wrist piercing (brace) sits vertical or horizontal at the wrist and belongs to the surface piercings.
Surface piercings absolutely should be stitched of a professional piercer. If they aren´t stitched deep enough, the probability is very high that the piercing grows out and leaves scars.
Because this place can be exposed to a lot of irritations (long-sleeved clothing etc.), the healing could appears as very protracted (up to several months).
For jewellery a curved barbell or surface barbell is applied.
