There's probably more debate and arguments started over the right way to do a surface piercing, than any other type of piercing. Many will tell you that properly formed surface bars are the only way to make them heal and prevent migration. While it's true that surface bars are an excellent method and have less migration, they're not the only method. That's one of the points that you need to understand about piercing---there's never just one proper way. Some Piercers go even farther and make the statement that surface piercings shouldn't be done at all, they're too risky, dangerous, and/or don't heal. They're not risky. A worse case scenario, you will have a small rejection scar, and while some don't heal, most others do. As long as the client is informed as to the issues involved, have fun with it. Or now here are alternatives, Dermal Anchors which are more stable in the skin, once they become anchored into the skin they are very stable. I have clints that have had them for years and had no problem with them. Anyway, I could go on and on about the trash talk I have heard in the last 30 years, and have discovered most of the fear generated by the bullshit surrounding piercing. Even coming from professionals, who have no real piercing knowledge. For example, (self-taught tattoo artists & piercers, doctors, friends, and parents,) are the first to offer bad information. Feel free to ask Tattoo Art any questions, even if you think they're dumb questions. And please for your sake, stay clear of the places offering exceptionally cheap tattoos and piercings, and or working long hours. That should tell you right there, they are desperate and would go to great lengths to get unsuspecting victims, also possibly cutting corners in the sterilization or re-using their needles. Remember if you have a $10 body then by all means go to those places. Or make the Intelligent choice and come see our Piercer George Lewis, who has an excellent bedside matter that can't be beat, making him world renowned. Once you get a pierce from him, you will never go anywhere else and you will want to tell all your friends. And I guarantee you will be more than satisfied.
Note: It has been brought to my attention that one of the shops in my area are warning ladies that genital piercings are not allowed to be done by piercers in Ontario any more. This lie is being told to you ladies because at this shop they have no formal training in piercing. And rather than send you to a more qualified piercer, he just tells a fat lie and tries to scare you off.
Do some research first before you listen to such crap!
