to know about it. web pages/ names/ email/ phone numbers.

Body jewelry can be a tricky thing for those not in the field. Rule
number one: any cheap jewelry is not acceptable. If jewelry is made
poorly it can cause bad reactions in the body. Certain materials
such as silver, or anything painted or plated is not good. Gold
should be 18k. Stainless steel should be made of either 316LVM
ASTMF-138 or 316L for healed piercings. “Surgical” stainless doesn’t
say anything about what kind of metal it is. All parts of the
jewelry should be mirror polished with no nicks, scratches, or bumps.
Quality body jewelry is not cheap, but if you care about your
customers it’s worth it. And just because a company claims that it
makes it’s jewelry from 316LVM doesn’t mean it’s of good quality. You
can find out more at www.safe-piercing.org and I believe that they
have a few names of companies in their member listings.
