Choosing the right body piercer is essential to getting your body piercing done correctly and safely. Here are some things to look for when you select your body piercer:
- Body piercing should not be done with a piercing gun - body piercing needles should always be used to pierce the body.
- The piercing studio should have an autoclave, which is used in hospitals to clean medical equipment.
- The piercer should wear gloves when piercing your body.
- The piercer should remove body piercing tools from a sterile bag in front of you.
