Choosing a good piercer wisely is the most important thing one should do in order to assure a 100% safe piercing experience. Before undergoing any body piercing procedure, try to review the following points to make sure that the shop you visit complies with each to your utmost satisfaction. As the body piercing industry is virtually unregulated, it is up to the client to research and be confident in the studio they choose to go to:
Does the shop reuse needles?
Any professional shop will only use single-use hypodermic needles. Needles should be disposed of in bio-hazard containers after use.
Does the shop seem clean?
Is the studio brightly lit? How does it smell? Is there dust anywhere? Are the floors tiled or carpeted? Are they regularly mopped? How often is the chair, sink, counter, etc. in the piercing room wiped down and disinfected?
Ask questions of the staff and the piercer.
Does the staff appear knowledgeable? Do they refer you to the owner or piercer of the shop when necessary? Are they friendly and approachable? Is the piercer able to answer all your questions regarding sterility, cross contamination, the piercing process, infection control, aftercare, etc.? Does the piercer make you feel comfortable and at ease?
Check the shop’s jewelry selection.
A good studio will have a wide selection of jewelry in order to accommodate a wide variety of piercings. Does the studio customize or make any of its jewelry? What jewelry is used in the initial piercing? Inquire about jewelry sizes (diameter and gauge), and type of metal (316L stainless steel, titanium, Teflon, etc.). Is the jewelry disinfected before being sold?
