5 Things to Look For in a Body Piercing Kit

Posted by R on 9/11/2021 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.

Best Nose Piercing Kits for 2021

Best Nose Piercing Kits for 2021

So how can you tell the difference between an inferior nose piercing kit and a safe nose piercing kit to use?  I can tell you right now that I founded Hottie Body Jewelry back in 2009 with the purpose of providing accurate information and piercing kits and materials to those of you that are either choosing to self-pierce or are beginning a career in body piercing.  I have over 35 years of combined medical and body piercing experience to draw from and have trained hundreds of body piercers through my courses over the years. 

Here is the BIG difference in the nose piercing kits I offer versus the rest of the sellers out there, whom with all due respect, don’t know the first thing about what it takes to pierce:

1.      There are two types of nose piercing kits that are available; piercing kits that have needles that are used to create the hole for the nose jewelry and kits that offer a cartridge with the jewelry inside of it.  Either type is safe to use IF the body jewelry is STERILIZED.

2.     A proper piercing kit of any kind should include; a sterile laser-sharpened piercing needle or proper gauge and length, skin preparation (i.e. alcohol swab(s) for disinfecting the skin area before piercing, proper tools (i.e. the minimum tool for nose piercing is a cork, and of course the correct body jewelry gauged for noses to match with the needle gauge.  Now, here is where the big difference in nose piercing kits is found – 98% of the piercing kits sold on ebay, Walmart, amazon, bodyj4you and etsy include non-sterile and dangerous jewelry that is sent ‘loose’ that should NEVER be used in a fresh initial piercing!  If the photos of the kit show the jewelry ‘loose’ it is not sterile, simple as that.  The nose piercing kits offered on my site can be ordered to include all body jewelry pre-sterilized and in color-changing sterile pouches so that the jewelry is kept safe and sterile until the moment you pierce.  I also offer professional grade piercing kits with factory new jewelry that is unsterilized for my professional piercer clients that own autoclaves and choose to pouch and sterilize their own body jewelry.  If you are a novice and do not own an autoclave (a $2k to 4k piece of equipment) you should ALWAYS order your piercing kits with sterilized body jewelry that comes in the color-changing pouches.
