If you are in the market for a body piercing kit, choosing the right one for your needs can be a bit confusing. Also, your chances of infection vary wildly, depending upon the choice you make. Of course, it’s always best to have a body piercing done by a trained professional piercer. But if a kit is all you need, here are the things you should always keep in mind.
First, make sure the kit is designed for the type of piercing you are doing. If you are self-piercing your navel, you should buy a kit that is designed for navels, or at least has 14g needles and curved barbells to do the job properly. Secondly, make sure the body piercing kit you choose includes instructions, either how-to videos in dvd or streamed, so you will have a guide to follow. Finally, the most important thing of all is to make sure your body piercing kit includes sterile body jewelry. The vast majority of body piercing kits do not include sterile body jewelry. Why? It’s mainly because of the time and expense in sterilizing body jewelry – most companies would rather make more profit off your purchase than insure your safety. Luckily, there is on company that specializes in sterile body piercing kits that include sterilized body jewelry. Good luck with your piercing and remember, if it doesn’t say that it’s ‘sterile’, it isn’t.
