Hooked Piercing Needles - Our Precision hooked piercing needles were designed by Brazilian piercer and Painful Pleasures-sponsored artist Ronaldo "Snoopy" Sampaio. Snoopy took inspiration from the best professional piercers who he admires most when creating this hooked piercing needle design. We believe that the industrialization of these new hooked piercing needles will improve our industry worldwide. Instead of being curved by hand and losing sharpness in the process, they are sterilized in cold temperatures and ready to be used right out of the box. Each needle is individually packaged and EO gas sterilized.
