When a person decides to get a body piercing for the first time, they are definitely sure about it. But being sure is not always what it takes to really do it. You have to know what it should feel and accept that you can really do it. And the most important thing is to be sure of where you will have it done.
Here are the three most important factors that will help you choose what shop you get your first piercing done.
Of course the most important is how good the shop or clinic in terms of their cleanliness. You wouldn’t want to be pierced in a place where trash and dirt are everywhere. That kind of surrounding can be a sign of future infections.
A person should find a shop that is nice and neat, where everything is really clean and sanitized to assure the safety of the piercing procedure.
There are a lot of piercers out there. In malls, there are stands or jewelry shops that can do piercing quickly but most of them are not legally professional. Yes, people go to them to get piercings and that’s okay. It’s just a matter of personal preference.
But if you really want to ensure your safety, go to a real professional piercer. Professional piercers have a set of standards that they follow to assure every client of the safety of the procedure, what they use and the aftercare tips.
Needle or Piercing Guns
Most of the conveniently available shops around malls are jewelry shops that do piercings with a piercing gun. Piercing guns seem so quick, easy and painless. But according to professionals, piercing guns are a bit off since these guns are unregulated and not precise.
If you will get pierced, it is best to get it done with piercers that use hollow needles because that will prevent further development of scar tissue and avoid damage.
