How to Choose a Safe and Reputable Piercing Studio

Piercing is a popular form of body modification, but it's important to do your research and choose a reputable shop to ensure the best quality and safety for your new piercing. Here are five red flags to watch out for when selecting a piercing studio:

  1. Junk jewelry: Be wary of shops that sell low quality jewelry. It's important to opt for implant grade titanium, solid 14 karat gold, or gold of a higher carat when getting a piercing.

  2. Cheap piercings: While it may be tempting to save money, it's important to consider the materials and techniques being used. Cheap needles or poor quality jewelry can lead to more trauma and potential health issues.

  3. Non-sterile marking tools: Make sure the shop marks the piercing site with a skin marker or skin ink, rather than using a pen or sharpie. These items may not be sterile and can increase the risk of infection.

  4. Improper jewelry: Be cautious of shops that use improper jewelry for piercings. Certain types of jewelry, such as curved barbells for surface piercings or externally threaded pieces, can be harmful and increase the risk of infection.

  5. Lack of reputation: Do your research and choose a reputable piercing studio. Look for reviews and ask for recommendations from trusted sources to ensure the best quality and safety for your new piercing.
