Is There a Season For Body Piercing?

02 20th, 2012 Author: justhurtabit

Many industries have certain times of the year that are busy or slow for them.  For the body art industry, it is safe to say that the spring and summer months are the best times to get and show off new piercings and tattoos.

Although spring and summer are prime times for new body art, many body piercings are performed in the fall and winter months, many times in dorm rooms where students are kept indoors due to inclement weather.  Whatever time of the year, it’s always a great time to get a body piercing or tattoo – whether you buy a sterile body piercing kit online and do it yourself or go to your local shop to get it done.  Just make sure you are using sterile body jewelry and proper technique when piercing and if you are a piercer, make sure you buy your body piercing supplies and body piercing kits from a reputable supplier.

Since our launch in May 2010, the Body Piercing News has been enjoyed by many thousands of body art enthusiasts.  As some of you may have noted recently, our site was down for 32 hours due to ‘excessive bandwith usage’.  Basically, what this means as that our popularity has exceeded our bandwith alotment, and therefore, we are facing higher costs to accomodate our valued readers, such as yourself.  In response to this, we have added a “Paypal’ Donation button in the left column of the site, just under the category listings.  So if we have made you laugh, learn or think a bit while meandering our articles, hopefully you might show your appreciation by donating to our cause from time to time.  It’s not required, but it would be immensely appreciated and help us continue bringing  you the most interesting, thought-provoking and strange oddities from the body art world.  Also, please visit our sponsor links, as these also help us to continue with our mission to inform and entertain you at all times.

Should You Buy Body Piercing Kits on ebay?

01 17th, 2012 Author: justhurtabit

As with just about everything else you can think of, there are people selling tattoo and body piercing kits and supplies on ebay.  Basically, ebay is the largest garage sale in the world.  Although you can sometimes find things on ebay for a few dollars less than you would from respectable companies, it may not always be a good idea to buy there for some items.

When it comes to tattoo and body piercing supplies (especially ones that are supposed to be sterile) you may be taking a chance and putting yourself (and your clients) at risk by buying ‘sterile’ items on ebay.  The problem with ebay is that they are more about ‘commerce’ than safety, and there are few (if any) quality controls in place in regards to safe-guarding people against fly-by-night operations that may be selling inferior goods.  Your best bet when buying tattoo or body piercing supplies is to avoid buying from sellers that do not have a web-site or physical store locations – in other words, make sure the people you are entrusting with your (and your clients’) safety is established and can guarantee the sterility of their products.  We found a leading supplier of body piercing kits and supplies that offers both low prices and top quality guaranteed sterile products.  You might find what you need for a little less on ebay, but is it really worth that dollar or two you will save if you or your clients get infections?

Cool or Fool? Lip Tattoos

New Symbol For Raider Pride?

Hello sports-fans and fanaticals, it’s Pokee, and I’m back to bring you this little shard of curiosity.  Now as a card-carrying member of the heterosexual male race, and a sporting fan to boot, I try to keep an open-mind about things I see going on around me.  I mean if a guy like Dennis Rodman wants to put on a little make up for a night out, or wear a dress around the house while he smokes a cigar watching re-runs of Friends, that’s his monkey-business, and he’s entitled to a little strangeness after being arguably one of the most ferocious defensive players to ever play in the NBA.

But when it comes to a guy who claims to be a member of Raider Nation showing off a Hello Kitty tattoo on the inside of his mouth, I have to draw the line.  Are you kidding me? Not only is this a bad place to get a tattoo (was he trying to impress his dentist?), but doing this could be hazardous to this guy’s health – especially if he opens his mouth at a home game.  If you don’t already know, Raider fans are the craziest and most violent fans anywhere, and they take their team very seriously and tend to frown on things that are feminine and unusual.  This guy’s chances of surviving his next Raider game are worse than if you or I decided to take a bath in gasoline and then set ourselves on fire as we slid down a 300 foot razor blade!  Seriously, have you SEEN the creatures at Raider games?  It’s so bad, they call it ‘The Black Hole’ and inside those stands it is common to find rabid pit bulls, animal carcasses, skeletons with swords, and swash-buckling two-headed Darth Vaders packing M16’s.  This is enough to make Al Davis turn in his grave!  This guy either has a death-wish, or was talked into doing this by his girlfriend.  Come on man, have some self-respect.  Now that you’ve done this what’s next – getting a body piercing kit and letting her use it to turn Mr. Tadpole into a mini hoop-steel christmas tree?  My advice to you is the next time your lady comes up with some bright idea like this, grow a pair and say no.  Oh, and if I were you I would not go to any more Raider games, unless your idea of fun is becoming the first person to be killed during a live sporting event for utter stupidity.

You know the drill.  Cast your vote and be heard; Is this guy Cool or Fool?

That’s all I got for now,


Is This Pokee?

Where To Buy The Best Body Piercing Supplies

12 6th, 2011 Author: justhurtabit

Body art and quality body piercing supplies are not something easily found in retail stores – it’s not like you can just go to a Walmart for hollow piercing needles.  Although many of the piercing tools and equipment used in body art are borrowed from the medical field, some items are quite specific in their origination and use.

If you have done a search for body piercing supplies you know there are many sources that come up.  The question is: Who can you trust?  The answer, we found is that it is best to purchase your supplies from companies that are dedicated solely to body piercing supplies and who have established themselves within the industry for their quality and value.  We found a leading supplier of body piercing supplies that offers true free shipping and no order minimums.  If you have any other questions or comments feel free to write us at the

Want To Start Body Piercing as a Career?

12 4th, 2011 Author: justhurtabit

Many people are finding it harder and harder to land decent jobs that pay enough to live comfortably.  Those that find themselves employed are probably expected to do more than ever, with less benefits and pay.

One of the few industries that has boomed the past few years is body art; body piercers can easily make over $100.00 per hour, and do not have to work out of a tattoo shop to be successful.  We found a company that specializes in producing starter body piercing kits that include everything needed to get started in a new career as a body piercer for under $200.00!

Saving Money on Body Piercing

11 23rd, 2011 Author: justhurtabit

In many areas of the country, there is a shortage of qualified body piercers.  As with all things, a short supply leads to increased prices.  At the Body Piercing News we have heard of people charging as much as 85 USD for piercings in some areas.

Because of this shortage, more and more people are turning to purchasing body piercing kits and doing the piercings themselves.  Although this is not recommended for many piercings (which are difficult to do by novices), there are many piercings that can be done with a good chance of success at home.  Just make sure the body piercing kit you purchase includes sterile body jewelry, proper skin preparation and how-to instructional videos.  This company offers the best quality sterile body piercing kits we have found along with streaming videos and aftercare guidelines, at the most affordable prices.

Holidays and Piercing: Do they go together?

11 18th, 2011 Author: justhurtabit

The holidays are believed by some to be the worst time to get pierced or tatted.  The reasoning behind this is that having a pink (still healing) piercing or fresh tattoo visible at the holiday dinner table may be the catalyst for ‘prickly’ conversation from relatives.

Although that may be true in some respects (depending upon where you get the body art), it may actually be the best time (economically) to get work done since traditionally many shops are slow at this time of the year.  So if you are thinking about getting that new body piercing and the cat is already out of the bag (that you do such things), you may be able to get rock-bottom deals on getting it done right now.  So treat yourself to that tattoo or body piercing you want and just keep the conversation moving during those long holiday meals 🙂

Professional Starter Body Piercing Kit

Many people are frustrated with being asked to do more for less at their current jobs, or worse, are finding it difficult to even find a job.  While some say the economy is getting better, many changes in the job market are here to stay.  Worker’s rights are being taken away, as well as expectations of benefits, raises and the feeling that working hard will lead to job security and retirement.

There are very few industries that have grown over the last few years.  One of them is the booming demand for body piercers.  As body piercing becomes more and more commonplace, the demand has reached a critical point for qualified professional body piercers.  With the proper training and a  starter body piercing kit you can easily earn over $100.00 per hour either working for yourself or out of a tattoo shop.  You just need to be good with customers and not be squeamish about blood (which is part of the territory).  If you can handle that you may have what it takes to be a great body piercer.  For a complete starter body piercing kit that includes streaming how-to videos and a booklet that show you how to get started and start piercing legally in the area near you, click on the link provided earlier in the sentence.  Good luck!
