Home piercing has become more and more commonplace due to economic and practical reasons. Every day, more and more people are choosing to self-pierce, especially areas that are a bit sensitive in nature, like nipples and genitals. Although it is always recommended to seek the services of a professional body piercer when possible, home piercing is a phenomenon that is growing and shows not sign of slowing down.
If you have decided to pierce yourself (or a loved one) at home, make sure you purchase a body piercing kit that is complete and includes sterile body jewelry. The kit you choose should have sterile body piercing needles, skin preparation (such as benzalkonium chloride pads) and of course, sterile body jewelry in individual pouches. Although there are many places to purchase piercing kits, be sure that the one you buy includes sterile body jewelry and if possible, video instructions and aftercare information. Take the time to find a truly complete and all sterile body piercing kit so that you will have the best chance of success with your piercings!
