How To Choose a Body Art Supplier

01 22nd, 2014 Author: justhurtabit

Choosing the right supplier for body piercing kits and supplies can make the difference between a happy and successful piercing and a disaster, ending in infection.  Many novices new to body piercing are confused by the deceptive advertising done by auction sites like Ebay and who actually pay to push their wares onto unsuspecting consumers through search engines like Google and Bing.

The Body Piercing News has been scouring the world for reliable sources of professional grade and sterile (safe) body piercing kits and supplies and have never seen a respected and legit body piercing kit offered on ebay or that we would recommend using.  Remember, the vast majority of sellers on ebay are amateur people selling stuff from their garages and kitchens and who know nothing about body art or the standards that must be in place to guarantee the safety of you and your loved ones.  We have found the most reliable supplier of body piercing kits and supplies (click link) who is a leading company in the field and is the only company that actually guarantees sterility and posts their spore test results publicly.  For more information regarding body piercing techniques, supplies and trends check out the rest of the articles we post here and stay tuned 🙂

Chinese Ear Piercing Kit

In an effort to inform our readers of the inherent dangers and huge differences in body art supplies and body piercing kits available today, we strive to keep up to date on the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to body art suppliers.

The above photo is for a kit that is currently being hocked on ebay for $60 plus shipping, and without really looking at what is included it might seem appealing.  Upon further inspection it is obvious that this is nothing more than a cheap Chinese ear piercing kit with a couple forceps and a dozen or so needles thrown into it!  We ask you to compare this kit (that includes needles and jewelry for only 10 body piercings) with a comparably priced actual body piercing kit assembled and produced in the USA by clicking here on this link for starter body piercing kits.  If you take the time to read the actual contents of what is offered you will find they are vastly different.  Make sure you ALWAYS look at the details of what, who and where your supplies are coming from and make sure you are making a choice you and your customers can live with!

If you are thinking about a career change or are tired of the hassle of working for others, maybe you should look into becoming a professional body piercer.  Trained body art technicians (piercers) are in high demand as the growing popularity of body piercing has caught on and become a standard fashion statement.  Since many tattoo artists do not pierce, it’s a better time than ever to enter the industry and be your own boss.

Unlike tattooing (which demands artistic skills), body piercing is a process that can be perfected through practice.  Just about anyone with steady hands and determination can learn to body pierce in a short time.  There are career starter kits available that include everything you will need to get started in your new business.  We here at the Body Piercing News recommend a starter body piercing kit offered by the most trusted body art supplier in the world (click link provided for more information).

How Much Do Body Piercers Make?

getting_pierced In this age of tough economic times and jobs that may require college degrees to make a decent wage, there is one that stands out and can be learned without paying thousands to a college that can make you in excess of $100 an hour; body piercing.  Many body piercers are finding increasing demand for their services, many times able to work part-time while enjoying full-time incomes.

You will need to learn the basics of body piercing first, either by apprenticing yourself to a piercer or through repetitious practice until you are competent.  Then you will need a starter body piercing kit with the proper tools and supplies to pierce with.  We found only one company that offers professional quality starter body piercing kits along with free shipping anywhere in the USA.  For more information and pricing, click on this link for starter body piercing kits.  Happy piercing!

In the past couple years there has been an explosion of people offering body piercing supplies online.  While at first glance body piercing kits may all appear similar, however, there are VAST differences between them that could not only make or break your piercing experience, but cost you a trip to the emergency room if you buy from the wrong source!

The truth is that almost all body art kits and supplies sold on ebay and amazon are sold by amateurs, or non-piercers trying to make a buck off people that are more green than they are to piercing.  These kits are assembled in kitchens or garages (or other unsanitary places) and thrown into a bag for sale, without any assurances or guarantees of sterility offered.  There are only a few reputable companies that offer body piercing kits and of those, we found only one company that was superior in quality, price and offered free shipping without a large order minimum – offering pre-sterilized body jewelry included in basic piercing kits from as low as only $8.00 shipped.  For more information on this company, click on this link for body piercing kits.   Happy piercing!

New Health Department Rules: Are you in compliance?

05 17th, 2013 Author: justhurtabit

Across the nation counties and states are tightening regulations designed for a safer body art experience for customers.  From Oregon, California and Nevada to other states eastward, shops are seeing new regulations and procedural changes that can be complicated at times.  The aim of these new regulations is to standardize an industry that for decades has resisted standardization.  The end result, it is hoped, will be a safer experience for customers whether they are getting a body piercing or a new tattoo.

If you own or work in a shop that has been hit with new changes and tightened regulations, you are not alone.  Thousands of shops in California have been impacted by the implementation of AB-300 (a bill passed by the state legislature last year) that calls for increased oversight and regulation of body art establishments.  One of the mandates calls for the use of safe metals and alloy materials for body piercing, like the body piercing supplies offered here.  If you are in doubt if your shop is in compliance, speak to the shop owner for clarification.  Remember, as a body artist it is ultimately your responsibility to be in compliance at all times.  You may also contact your county health department for clarification.

Who Can You Trust for Piercing Kits?

Trust is a very sacred thing when it comes to body art.  If you don’t trust your body piercer or tattoo artist you probably would find someone else to do your body art.  Likewise, the sterility of a body piercing kit or tools used for body piercing are only as good as the company that supplies them.

Whether you are a professional body piercer or are a self-taught piercer who pierces friends and family members at home, you need to make sure that where you are buying your supplies or piercing kit from is a reputable and fully licensed company.  Remember, it doesn’t matter how careful you are (with gloves and proper skin preparation procedures) – if what you are using to pierce, and the body jewelry you are inserting isn’t sterile, you are risking an infection or worse.   For safe piercing tips or questions contact us anytime.  Safe piercing 🙂
