The Piercers Bill Of Rights
Every person being pierced has the right…
…To be pierced in sterile surroundings by a clean, conscientious and qualified Piercer wearing a fresh pair of disposable latex gloves.
…To a sober, calm, friendly 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 understands and practices the very highest standards of sterilization and hygiene.
…To be pierced with a brand-new, fully sterilized needle, which is immediately disposed of in a medical sharps container after single use on the piercee alone.
…To be touched only with freshly sterilized, appropriate implements, properly used and disposed of, or adequately re-sterilized prior to further 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 that is appropriately sized, safe in material, design and construction, and which best promotes healing. Gold-plated, gold-filled, and sterling silver jewellery is 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.
