If you have never got a piercing done before, it is absolutely normal to have plenty of questions in mind. Now, the internet will certainly provide you genuine answers to most of those questions, but when you have a physical source right in front of you, why ask Google?
Yes, we are talking about your piercer. An experienced and reputed piercer will be more than happy to answer all your questions. So, all you have to do is stop being hesitant and ask what you have on mind. However, if you are clueless about what to ask after entering any piercing shops in Fargo, ND, here we have a list for you.
List of questions to ask your piercer:
- since how many years are you in this field?
You definitely don’t want some amateur to insert needles in your body. So, make sure to ask your piercer about his/her experience.
- Can I see some references?
Any reputed piercer will have a number of clients whom he/she can refer. Also, if your piercer is in the field since years, there will be plenty of photographs of previous clients somewhere on their website, or in a customers’ record book in the studio.
- Do you sterilize all your equipment?
The only answer to these questions should be YES. If it isn’t, leave immediately and find some other piercing shop. A piercer who doesn’t use an autoclave, or a similar device, to sterilize equipment is certainly not the right person for the job.
- How do you ensure overall safety?
Your piercer will explain you all the health and safety measures that they follow. Also, an ideal piercer will give you a tour of the studio in order to make you feel comfortable.
- How long will I take to heal?
Well, healing time varies from person to person, but it is always good to know what the typical healing time is.
- What about the aftercare?
No matter how many articles you read online about the aftercare steps of piercing, don’t forget to ask this question to your piercer. Every individual is different, and depending on your skin type and the location of your piercing, a piercer can provide better aftercare instructions.
- How much will it cost?
Don’t just agree to whatever you are quoted. Take your time and research the market price for the type of piercing you want to get done. If you are charged anything higher than that, surely negotiate.
So, you see, it is not that difficult. Stop being shy and ask for whatever you have in mind.
