At first glance, body piercing might seem pretty simple: take a needle, make a hole, insert jewelry. But while piercing needles are certainly essential, there are many other piercing tools that piercing professionals use every day. Here you’ll find all the body piercing tools and instruments you need to pull off the perfect piercing every time.
Body piercing instruments: There are lots of miscellaneous instruments piercers use to ensure precision and control during piercing. Here you’ll find a selection of high quality piercing tools including tweezers, suture scissors, and lighting and magnification tools.
Piercing pliers, forceps, and hemostats: Aside from the needles themselves, these piercing tools are some of the most basic in the piercer’s toolbox. Specialized forceps allow you to securely hold the skin during piercing, while hemostats help secure jewelry components during installation or removal. Opening and closing pliers can also assist in the installation and removal of circular barbells and captive bead rings.
Body piercing tapers: Piercing tapers are typically used either to stretch a piercing to a larger size, or to assist with the installation of threaded jewelry. You’ll find a wide selection of both taper styles here.
Body piercing markers: Piercers use body markers to make sure piercing sites are correctly located. Whether you prefer a surgical skin marker or the old school gentian violet and toothpicks approach, you’ll find what you need here.
Dermal piercing tools: Dermal piercings are relatively rare, and if you want to perform them you’ll need some specific tools like a dermal punch and specialized forceps. With the proper training and technique, these dermal piercing tools will help you safely pierce and install a dermal anchor and jewelry.
Ball grabber tools: Barbells and captive bead rings are some of the most common body jewelry styles out there, but they’re also some of the most annoying to change and install due to their small screw-on components. With a specialized ball-grabber tool, however, you’ll never have to worry about losing those tiny pieces again.
Piercing calipers: Piercing calipers allow you to quickly and easily measure all the important specs and dimensions of body jewelry including gauge, length, and inner diameter. We carry both standard and digital piercing calipers.
Piercing corks and receiving tubes: Piercers use corks or receiving tubes to safely catch the piercing needle after it passes through the skin. Here you’ll find affordable corks, as well as plastic, glass, and steel receiving tubes.
