Forum Discussion – No Clothes Rule?

Posted in Piercing News at 6:07 pm by admin

“A lot of people who have gotten tattoos at work, generally have to keep clothes off the tat so that it can heal and not be rubbed on. I’m getting my first tattoo soon but most likely I will get it on my chest or back, places I need to wear clothes on. Is the no clothes thing true? and if so how long do I have to keep it like that?” – HrtlessJekka

QOW – Plastic, Disposable Needles?

Posted in Piercing News at 6:07 pm by admin

Question: Hi there, I have a question or two for you. I have 10 tattoos and they
have all been done by the same person. I am getting my 11th on Friday and
apparently she has switched to disposable needles, and they are
plastic….or something…. I am wondering what the difference is between
metal and plastic, other than the obvious. I was told that it hurts alot
more with a plastic one than with the normal needle. I would appreciate
anything you have for me. Thank you very much!!


Answer: Unless there is some new product out that I’ve never heard of, disposable
needles should still be metal. The disposable grip tubes are lexan
plastic, but not the needles. So, the pain should be no different. Plastic
would not be able to properly pierce the skin – I think someone has given
you some wrong information.


Let me know if I’M wrong! But I’ve never heard of plastic needles for tattooing.

How Many Times Can a Tongue be Pierced at Once?

Posted in Piercing News at 6:07 pm by admin

At least five! Victor Rogers sent me this fantastic photo of his 5 tongue piercings done at Freaks in Kansas City, Missouri. I’ve seen three done at once before, but this is a first for me. Anyone got a photo to beat it? If you’ve got a picture (of yourself!) with more than 5 tongue rings at once, send it along to me at tattoo.guide@about.com with your name and piercer’s information. Let’s see if we can get a little competition going here!

Note: When sending a photo, please use this one from Victor as an example – clear image, good size and great detail. This image was actually sent to me much larger and I was able to crop and resize it, which was great.
