It's convenient to get your ears pierced while at the mall shopping.
It's sometimes cheaper to get a piercing at the mall or at a booth versus a qualified piercer.
Piercing guns cannot be properly sterilized. They come into contact with bodily fluid and a simple swipe of an alcohol swab in-between uses is not enough to sterilize the instrument. Some claim that the instrument never comes into contact with the skin, but the piercer's hands do, and they're touching the potentially contaminated gun and are further contaminating it with your blood. When the blunt stud is forced through your skin, there's no way knowing whether or not particles of blood have been dispersed into the air. A wipe of an alcohol or antiseptic pad is not going to remove all disease-carrying blood particles.
Mall employees and booth workers generally undergo a whopping two week course on how to use a piercing gun. That's not a lot of time to teach proper techniques about infection control or healing techniques.
There can be major tissue trauma when a piercing is performed with a gun. The piercing guns hold blunt studs, and when these studs are forced through the tissues, it literally rips the tissue in order to make room for the jewelry #needlesonly #piercingapprentice #bodypiercing #bodyjewelry #cartilagepiercings #757piercings #customerservice #art #hamptonroads #piercingsofinstagram
