According to safepiercing.org, “your potential piercer should earn your trust by demonstrating knowledge and competency. Before taking your money, a piercer should be willing to provide a consultation to inspect your anatomy, discuss jewelry selection, the procedure, potential risks and complications, the healing process, and aftercare guidelines.” At Sacred Raven Tattoo & Piercing Shop, we agree whole-heartedly and offer these quick tips, from our own incredibly talented advanced piercing specialist, Enrique aka Reek.
6 Tips to Consider When Choosing a Professional Piercer
- Figure out what type of body piercing you want, and consider your lifestyle. If your piercing could be at risk of rubbing, tearing, or being tampered with in any way, it is not the piercing for you.
- Find a reputable body piercing shop with good reviews and recommendations. Consider the cleanliness of the shop and make sure that the tools and jewelry are sterile. New and sterile items should be opened from a package in front of you.
- Make sure they ask for proper identification. If they don’t ask for your ID, then they are unlikely to follow proper health regulations.
- Be sure that the skin on the area you are considering getting pierced is not irritated in any way. As an example, if you want your nose pierced and you have a pimple it’s probably best to wait.
- Piercing procedure. The piercer should mark the piercing site to ensure that you like the placement. Make sure that they are wearing gloves to prevent potential contamination, and jewelry should come in pre-sealed and sterilized packages. The room should be clean, and the piercing site should be cleaned immediately before piercing.
- Your piercer should give you a short sheet of aftercare instructions on how to help keep your piercing healthy and sanitary. At Sacred Raven Tattoo and Piercings in Fayetteville, we recommend that you purchase “Redemption”, which is an aftercare product that we offer at the shop.
