Angry Belly Piercing

emocuntxxx there was no way to send you an ask or a submission on your blog, so I’m posting your answer here ^_^

It’s hard to tell what would be causing that exactly, but we think it is likely poor quality metal. You also mentioned you are sensitive to metals, so we recommend finding a shop where you can switch out for a higher quality metal.  A shop should be able to tell you where they get their jewelry from, for example, jewelry ordered from the company Anatometal is guaranteed to be either ASTM F-136 Titanium, ASTM F-138 Stainless Steel, Niobium, or 18k gold.  Not all stainless steel was created equal, and you can tell the difference by looking closely at the polish of the metal. If you can see small scratches or nicks in the metal, it is likely lower quality.

Titanium is hypoallergenic, but high quality steel usually doesn’t cause reactions, and some people can only wear gold. 

Hope this helps!

Industrial Piercing Procedures

To answer the last question we had, I will create a post explaining our piercing process :) It’s kind of long, so feel free to scroll on by ^_^

At our shop you will be greeted when you come in, shown jewelry options, and we will take care of any questions you have initially. Then we’ll fill out paperwork, ring you up and you’ll be set to go!

If the jewelry isn’t presterilized, the piercer will sterilize the jewelry, which usually takes somewhere around 4 minutes. Some of our jewelry options are already sterilized and in stock in the piercing room. Then they will walk you back to our private piercing room, and first clean and mark the area to be pierced.  You will have a chance to look in the mirror and make sure you’re happy with the placement before the piercing happens.

When the everything is ready, the piercer will get any tools they are using lined up for the piercing (depending on the piercing, they will select the proper size needle and may use a needle receiving tube on the other side of the surface to be pierced).  You will be told to take several deep breaths, and they will let you know when they are ready to then execute the piercing. 

For an industrial, one hollow point needle will be used one time to pierce the first hole followed by the second, and then the jewelry will be inserted directly after.  It is quick and easy, we always like to say “if it hurt that badly, no one would do it.” 

When everything’s all done, we’ll talk you through the aftercare procedures and provide sea salt and a paper copy of instructions.

Hope this answered your question @saturdaisies!
