Advice You Need to Give When Selling Ear Piercing Kits

Selling ear piercing kits can really help you to expand your body art business. If you are thinking about offering those who want pierced ears the chance to do it at home, you may be considering stocking home piercing kits in your store. These kits are great, as they prevent people from performing DIY ear piercing procedures using a sharp needle and an ice cube. DIY piercing often leads to infections and other problems, so it is best avoided. However, when selling home kits, it is important to provide the following advice to your customers.

Advise customers to check out the different types of kits that are available

There is a range of different home piercing kits available that contain different sized needles. Your customers should avoid buying the first one they see, as this may not be the kit which is best suited to their needs. You should advise your customers to opt for a kit that contains antiseptic wipes and gloves, as these can help to prevent infections from occurring.

Advise customers to make sure their studs are suitable

Once your customer has found the right home piercing kit, they will need to look at the type of studs they wish to use. The first thing they need to check is that they are not allergic to the metal used to create the stud. For example, some people are allergic to nickel, and exposure to it will result in red and swollen skin. For the best results, your customers should opt for gold-plated studs, as these should not cause any reaction. Some kits will come with two studs, which are designed to be compatible with the needles they will use to pierce their ear.

Advise customers to check the site they plan to pierce

Finally, before going ahead and inserting the needle into their skin, it is important that you advise your customers to examine the area carefully. Tell them to gently grip their earlobe between their index finger and their thumb. Then rub the surface of the lobe to feel for any lumps. If they detect any lumps in their earlobe, they shouldn't go ahead with the piercing. If the lump is caused by a cyst, there is a risk of infection if a needle is used to puncture the site. Your customers should have the lump examined by their GP before they continue. If it is found that the lump is caused by old scar tissue, it should be safe to then pierce the earlobe.
