5 Things to Look For in a Body Piercing Kit

Posted by R on 7/20/2021 to Frequently Asked Questions
5 Things to Look For in a Body Piercing Kit:

1.  Make sure it is ALL STERILE - While just about anyone (and everyone) is offering piercing kits these days with sterile needle, an alcohol swab or gloves, only ONE seller offers piercing kits that are up to Health Department standards.
2.  Is the kit offered by an actual body piercer, or just someone trying to make a buck on,, or  Only offers professional-grade piercing kits that are ALL sterile and safe to use!
3.  Does the kit offer the proper tools for the job?  Some piercings (like septum piercings for example) require special tools.  Make sure the kit you purchase has the proper tools or your chances of doing the piercing correctly diminish greatly.
4. Does the kit include the CORRECT type of body jewelry in the proper gauge and style for the piercing?  Many inferior piercing kits include several types of jewelry and NONE of them are the right ones for the job. 
5.  Most important of all: IS THE BODY JEWELRY STERILIZED IN COLOR-CHANGING sterile pouches?  Or does it come loose (and dirty) from the factory floors in China?  If the photo of the kit contents shows the body jewelry loose, they are not sterilized and not for initial piercings.  Only the piercing kits from offer pre-sterilized body jewelry in the correct gauge and style for initial piercings for your safety.  Furthermore, for those of you that have sensitive skin we offer titanium body jewelry (also with the option for presterilized) for your needs to insure your piercings are safe and problem free during healing.

Is There Really A Way to Reduce The Pain of Getting Pierced?

Is There Really A Way to Reduce The Pain of Getting Pierced?
For some people, the only obstacle keeping them from getting a body piercing is the pain they imagine that comes with the process.  True, there is always a certain amount of pain felt in almost all body piercings, but there are ways that one can ‘minimize’ or reduce it.  The truth is, there will always be some pain felt no matter what you are getting pierced but using the right materials such as the items included in this body piercing kit can help minimize the pain and insure proper healing afterwards.

Contrary to popular belief it is NOT a good idea to drink alcoholic beverages before getting pierced or tattooed.  This is because alcohol thins the blood and can cause bleed-outs, prevent proper clotting (healing) or cause dizzyness, nausea or feinting.  Some people have found that taking Tylenol (acetaminophine) before a body piercing can reduce the pain felt without the blood-thinning risk.  (Note: do NOT take Aspirin, as this (like alcohol) will thin the blood and you will be exposing your client to greater risk of injury or bleeding.)

When it comes to numbing sprays or gels, we cannot endorse fully the use of these products as their effectiveness seems to differ from individual to individual.  While there may be a few that give some relief it is not guaranteed AND they are very expensive to use!  

One of the easiest ways to ensure your piercing will be quick and pain-free is to use lazer-sharp piercing needles.  If you are looking for a self piercing kit, you will find the safest professional-grade body piercing kits HERE that include the sharpest needles available and pre-sterilized and pouched body jewelry.  Remember, the sharper the needle the less skin resistance you will feel and the faster it is over with!   the use of sharp piercing needles reduces the pain felt during a piercing.  You can find ultra-sharp needles, supplies and body piercing kits and this fine online seller of body piercing kits and supplies.

Body Piercing Done Right The First Time in Lancaster, Ca.

Body Piercing Done Right The First Time in Lancaster, Ca.
Many people are misled to believe it doesn't matter who does their body piercings.  This could not be further from the truth.  In my community of Lancaster, Ca. I receive at least a half-dozen calls every week from customers that were pierced at tattoo shops, by tattoo artists who had no problems taking their money at the time but when it came to proper aftercare or answering follow-up questions they could not be bothered.  If you really believe someone that tattoos and body pierces is equally dedicated to both and that making 30 to 50 dollars off a body piercing is the same to them as doing a $300 tattoo, I have bridge to sell you!  At Hottie Body we are perfectionists and do every body piercing right the first time.

The Best Body Piercings in Lancaster, Ca - Period.  Hottie Body has dedicated body piercers that are not tattoo artists that pierce sometimes but are dedicated body piercers who only pierce and who are fully licensed and permitted to perform body piercings of all types.  You may think it doesn't matter where or who pierces you, but I can assure you that THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.  In tattoo shops, body piercing is looked down upon by most tattoo artists - who see piercing as something beneath them, that is why most tattoo artists that pierce will charge much more than Hottie Body...

Reality Check By Robin: Body Piercer not in or by appointment only?

Reality Check By Robin: Body Piercer not in or by appointment only?
Reality Check by Robin: If a tattoo shop says their body piercer is not in, or they tell you that you have to make an appointment to be pierced - it means they either do not actually have a full-time body piercer that works in their shop, or they don't take body piercing seriously enough to have one.  Hottie Body does!  Don't mess with less than the best when it comes to body piercing... Hottie Body is RATED #1 in the A.V. since 2009 and we ALWAYS treat you like family!
