In these tough economic times, people are finding creative ways to save money. One of the ways people are saving money is by purchasing a body piercing kit and self-piercing at home. Once considered a dangerous and complex task, the technological improvements in disposable piercing needles and supplies enables users to perform body piercings at home with a good chance of success. Of course, it is always recommended to seek the services of a professional body piercer. However, if you decide you would be more comfortable piercing yourself (or having a spouse or friend do the piercing), you can save money by getting a body piercing kit designed for the type of piercing you have in mind.
When it comes time to select a body piercing kit, make sure you purchase a kit that is completely sterile, from the needle and forceps all the way to the body jewelry included. If the body jewelry included is not contained in a sterile pouch with a sterilization date, it is not sterile. There very few respected sellers of honestly sterile body piercing kits around. Of the few, make sure you purchase your kit from a respected seller of body piercing supplies, and confirm that the piercing kit includes sterile needles, sterile forceps and sterile body jewelry. In common sense terms, for a body piercing kit to feature sterile needles, sterile forceps, but not include sterile body jewelry, is ludicrous. What good does it do to use a sterile needle, sterile forceps and prep if what you are inserting into the open wound is not sterile? Think about it. When you make your purchase of a body piercing kit, if it does not say the body jewelry is sterile, it isn’t.
