Quotes from Piercing FAQ
Single-Use Disposable Needles
Piercing needles are hollow, lancet-point needles, beveled and sharpened similarly to the hypodermic needles used by medical professionals. Most are about 2 inches in length. Piercing needles slice a crescent-shaped hole and do not remove tissue. The larger the needle, the more exaggerated the crescent shape of the hole. Most piercers in Europe use cannula needles designed for intravenous drips, which are fitted with a plastic sheath that is used to thread the jewelry into the piercing.
The needle should remain in its sterile, utoclave package until the piercer is ready to proceed with the piercing. Needles should be used only once and placed in a Medical Sharps container which is disposed of through a medical waste disposal service. Aside from cleanliness concerns, needles are noticibly dulled from a single use.
