One Box of 100 Sterilized Threaded Piercing Needles by Precision — Size 16g 25mm with DuPont DryFilm Coating

Supply your shop with the most durable, precise piercing needles by Precision. A custom emerywheel is used to cut the tips, which is a factor in why Precision has sharper needles than other manufacturers. Between the materials used to make them, the manufacturing process, and the tests run to ensure quality, we guarantee that you won’t look elsewhere for other needles. Our coated needles have been heat-coated with DuPont DryFilm Coating, which eliminates the need for any additional lubrication. It is widely accepted as the standard in the medical industry for needles and staples.

Please Note: These piercing needles are threaded on the inside of the hollow pipe. Body jewelry that has external 1.2mm threading can easily be threaded onto a 16g piercing needle.
