Want to get in on the action but don’t know where to start? We’re here to lay down some criteria that can serve as your piercing foundation.

Things you should look out for in a piercing company include cleanliness, pricing, and the general comfort level of the place.

Cleanliness: You have to make sure you’re getting piercings done in a clean environment to prevent infections. You’d be wasting your money, time, and patience if you have to get rid of your piercing because of a silly infection.

Pricing: Piercings should all be around the same price. But like all products, you get what you pay for. You may want to make sure you get quality piercings to prevent any dissatisfaction or re-do piercings.

Comfort: Piercings are stressful enough, try to find a professional that will ensure comfort and ease. After all, the last thing you need to worry about is an off-putting stranger when they’re about to stick a needle in you!
