6 Tips for Choosing a New Hampshire Piercing Shop

Before choosing the studio to do your piercing you want to ensure you make the safest and best possible fit for you. Below are some tips to fill you in your piercing, what to look for in a professional piercer, and what to expect the day of your piercing.

1. Figure out what you want for a piercing

Before beginning the search for a piercing studio in NH you will first want to get a clear idea of what you actually want to get done. Consider your lifestyle, your daily activities, and what kind of piercing will work best for you. Don’t make the mistake of getting a piercing that won’t be a fit for you.

2. Find a piercing shop near you in NH

Take a look at the list of piercing shops in New Hampshire above and do your homework first. Find the studios near you, look at their website if they have one, look at their social media profiles to see pictures of their work, and be sure to read through the reviews to ensure they take good care of their clients.

Beyond that, make sure they have a valid license in the state of NH, that their studio is clean and sanitary, and that they use sterile piercing procedures. Look for pre-packaged piercing tools and an autoclave which is a device to help sanitize equipment.

3. Call ahead or Book your appointment online

While some piercing studios do take a walk-ins, it is recommended that you call ahead to book an appointment. This way you will know what to expect to a greater degree and you won’t have to wait too long if others walk in ahead of you. This can be especially helpful if this is your first piercing.

4. Tips for the day of your Piercing appointment

Having seen someone faint before when getting a piercing here are some day of your appointment tips to make it an easier experience. Get some food in your body and don’t get your piercing on an empty stomach. Be sure to wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing the day of your appointment. Keep in mind where your piercing and wear clothing to make the piercing you have in mind easily accessible. It is also recommended to bring a relative or a friend with you for moral support! Be sure to bring your photo ID and potentially a birth certificate and parent if you are under the age of 18 years old.

5. The piercing procedure that should be followed

In an ideal world, this is what your NH piercing artist should follow for a procedure:

  1. The piercer should clearly mark the piercing site, show it to you, and get your buy in to ensure that is the exact spot your want for your piercing. Be sure to communicate with your piercer and let them know exactly what you want.
  2. Your piercing artist should absolutely put on a new pair of gloves every time they touch any surfaces, tools, etc that could contaminate their gloves with germs. Proper sanitary procedures are important to avoid infection at your piercing site.
  3. The actual piercing equipment your piercer uses should be in sealed, previously-packaged wrappers that are sterile. This is an important way to ensure a proper sterile piercing.
  4. The studio where you get your piercing should be immaculately clean. Additionally the area you are going to get pierced should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

6. After your piercing care

What you do after your piercing is important to avoid infection. Your piercing professional ideally should provide you with a printed out or emailed set of aftercare instructions that you should follow.

They will recommend that you keep your piercing clean with a specialized saline solution and wash that 4-6 times every day.

Before you leave the piercing studio, your NH piercing professional should examine everything once again to make sure you feel ok and understand completely what you should do to keep your piercing clean and safe. After you are fully recovered from the piercing you can enjoy your new piercing!
