The Receiving Tube

Body Piercing Receiving Tube
Angle-Tipped Receiving Tube

One of the most important body piercing supplies for a professional body piercer is the receiving tube.  The receiving tube is a tube that is made of either glass, steel or plastic and features a flat or angled end that is placed against the tissue to be pierced.  This tool is designed to ‘receive’ the piercing needle as it exits the pierced tissue.  Corks are also used instead of tubes for the same purpose.
