Continuing to bring you friendly advice to help you put your best foot forward- this week, I speak not to my regular audience, but to the owners of tattoo shops that also do piercing. Many piercers want to do a better job than they are, and YOU, tattoo shop (or indeed any business that has a piercer) are in a perfect position to help make that happen. As a piercer and shop captain, I tell you truthfully- the investment you make pays for itself VERY quickly, and not just monetarily!
Sometimes the thing you wish to be a part of most is the same thing that pisses you off. The people you looked up to are the same closed minded people you wished to escape.

Eh, that’s a tough one. Kinda depends on anatomy and also your goals and your “fit” with a partner (if desired). If I had to choose a minimum I’d say 12g, but for more stability and rougher play I’d say 10-8g. I did 8g for mine and it’s honestly a pretty good size and they are pretty comfortable.
Basically “surgical steel” means nothing to body piercing or quality jewelry. Surgical steel usually contains nickel which is a pretty common allergen/irritant for a lot of people.
When looking for steel body jewelry you want Implant Grade Steel (ASTM F-138); you can also get a similar look from titanium. Same thing for titanium, you want Implant Grade Titanium (ASTM F-136). The implant grade part is the important part!
Now, this can get a lil confusing; Niobium is also a safe material to wear in body jewelry, but it isn’t certified “implant grade”. Same for 14k and higher gold.
Here is a link to the APP brochure for safe jewelry for initial piercings. In the brochure there is a section on materials and it goes a lil more in depth.
Hope this helps✌️
