Bill of Rights

Every person being pierced has the right...

to be pierced in a scrupulously hygienic, open environment, by a clean, conscientious piercer wearing a fresh pair of disposable latex gloves.

to a sober, friendly, calm, and knowledgeable piercer, who will guide them through their piercing experience with confidence and assurance.

to the peace of mind which comes from knowing that their piercer knows and practices the very highest standards of sterilization and hygiene.

to be pierced with a sterile, single use needle, which is immediately disposed of in a medical sharps container.

to be touched only with freshly sterilized, appropriate implements, properly used and disposed of or resterilized in an autoclave prior to use on anyone else.

to know that ear-piercing guns are NEVER appropriate, and are often dangerous, when used on anything other than ear lobes.

to be fitted only with jewellery which is appropriately sized, safe in material, design, and construction, and which best promotes healing. Gold-plated, gold-filled, and sterling silver jewellery are never appropriate for any new or unhealed piercing.

to be fully informed about proper aftercare, and to have continuing access to their piercer for consultation and assistance with all their piercing related questions.
