This was noted in the discussion section of the original paper, and means that a lot of the arguments both for and against piercing guns cannot use this paper as evidence.

The use of older designs of piercing gun can possibly carry an increased risk of disease transmission, as compared to methods used by professional piercers. The area to be pierced must be disinfected with an approved skin preparation disinfectant outlined in Code of Practice for Skin Penetration Procedures (PDF 324KB). However I wanted to dispel the myths around gun piercings so here are my points on the matter, when considering ear piercing for children: gun versus needle.What we mean by this is that the jewellery has no room for swelling, which means that the chances of the tissue swelling over the jewellery and embedding within it is all too high, (Muntz et al, 1990. The tip of the earring is a 16 gauge tip which then turns into a 14 gauge pole at the other end of the earring once the tip has penetrated (Figure 1). I see a huge amount of social media posts from parents asking for recommendations for good, safe and hygienic places to go for ear piercing for children. This rough texture allows debris and bacteria to build up quickly and increases risks of infection, (Tweeten et al, 1998.

An ear-piercing instrument (commonly referred to as a piercing gun or an ear-piercing gun) is a device designed to pierce earlobes by driving a pointed starter stud through the lobe. In certain more modern designs, such as Inverness 2000 [6] and Studex System 75, [7] the instrument operates via hand pressure, whereby the piercer squeezes the instrument closed to push the stud rapidly through the ear, instead of via the force of a spring when a trigger is released. You will note that the single pro of a piercing gun to the client, its speed, can be matched by a skilled piercer. There is only one paper to read when discussing piercing gun trauma, which is that written by van Wijk et all in 2008.And sadly, it's the people most likely to have their piercings done at the mall whose health is the most compromised. Our exclusive Safety Back™ shields the sharp piercing tip and prevents the earring back from being squeezed too tight. You can get advice on potty training, talk about breastfeeding, discuss how to get your baby to sleep or ask if that one weird thing your kid does is normal. Larratt also printed T-shirts which featured an image of a piercing gun with a red circle and line through it, to mean No Piercing Guns. The best description of what the gun does to the ear would be taking a baseball bat and driving it into a sheetrock wall.

Bloodborne pathogens have been known to have been spread by untrained staff using piercing guns, (W. Not only this, but the transmission of bloodborne infections such as Hepatitis have been noted as a risk when reusing piercing guns, (Tweeten et al, 1998. One in particular had a bit of swelling which I was worried about as the earrings they supply don’t seem to account for any swelling. I pschyed myself up for another ten mins after this (considering I’m covered in tattoos and have quite a few other piercings my pain threshold is not the best) then just went for it.You avoid the possibility of keloids developing at the piercing site and most importantly infections, which are both common with the gun since it creates such an uneven result. Piercing guns have been criticised for causing damage (sometimes mischaracterised as blunt-force trauma) to the skin and underlying tissue. Blood from one client can aerosolize, becoming airborne in microscopic particles, and contaminate the inside of the gun. This makes the piercing somewhat less painful, and lessens trauma to the skin and tissue, but may still cause more trauma compared to hollow needles used by professional body piercers. Find high-quality piercing guns as well as a range of different diameters to choose from to suit all preferences in crystal, gold and silver.

Ear piercing studs and clasps must not be used anywhere else on the body other than the outer perimeter and lobe of the ear.This means that the worker using the piercing gun is a much more affordable option than hiring a fully trained piercer and either installing a sterilisation room or going fully disposable with blade needle piercings. I didn’t even look at the stud colour so I do think I’d prefer the clear or silver as this one is a darkish green. Jewelry that fits too closely also increases the risk of infection because it does not allow for thorough cleaning. The fact that the needle, having a much larger diameter than the other studs, showed the same amount of damage suggests that the best results can be expected from a sharp piercing instrument with a relatively small diameter. Here at Rogue we have lost count of the number of butterfly backs we have had to remove from inside people’s ears.
