Best Nose Piercing Kits for
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.
