Let’s talk about my first Dermal experience! First, keep in mind that every professional body piercer is different and have their own techniques, and that personal pain tolerance varies and depends on placement. Nevertheless, I will share my experience with Dermal Piercings to try and help you learn what to expect.
When people get their ear lobes pierced, they normally get pierced with an 18 or 20 gauge needle. If you choose reputable piercing shop, you’ll more than likely be pierced in a clean and well sanitized area with a single use needle and with sterilized tools. Not with a piercing gun like a lot of jewelry stores tend to use.
Ever since I was little, I have always been really interested in piercings although I never thought I would ever have the courage to get any. Now that I am older, piercings have become a part of me and who I am.
