Piercing needle

A piercing needle should have a sharp cutting edge rather than just a point so the piercing needle doesn’t pull the skin apart when making the hole in the body. The piercing needle will need to be specific to the type of body jewelry you will be inserting after the piercing.

Different gauges of jewelry require different piercing needles. When getting a body piercing, made sure the piercer has clean and new piercing needles. The salon or parlor you get your piercing done in should tell you all about the quality of their piercing needles and if you have any questions you should ask about their needles for piercing.
