Piercee's Bill Of Rights  

Every person being pierced has the right . . .
  • To be pierced in a scrupulously hygienic, open environment, by a clean, conscientious piercer wearing a fresh pair of disposable latex gloves.
  • To a sober, friendly, calm, and knowledgeable piercer, who will guide them through their piercing experience with confidence and assurance. 
  • To the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their piercer knows and practices the very highest standards of sterilization and hygiene. 
  • To be pierced with a brand-new, completely sterilized needle, which is immediately disposed of or resterilized in an autoclave prior to use on anyone else. 
  • To know that ear-piercing guns are NEVER appropriate, and are often dangerous, when used on anything other then ear lobes. 
  • To be fitted only with jewelry which is appropriately sized, safe in material, design, and construction, and which best promotes healing. Gold-plated, gold filled, and sterling jewelry are never appropriate for any new or unhealed piercing. 
  • To be fully informed about proper aftercare, and to have continuing access to their piercer for consultation and assistance with all their piercing-related questions.
A public service message from Gothic and the Association of Professional Piercers. If you cannot make it to Gothic for your piercing, make sure that you still get the safe, responsible, and professional piercing experience you deserve.
