Depending on the location of a piercing on the body, it may be necessary to use a particular tattoo piercing needle or piercing technique. Here are the most common types of body tattoo piercing needles and their uses.
Straight tattoo piercing needles are the most basic type of needle you'll encounter. These needles can be used for both ears and tongues, eyebrows and nipples. Straight needles come in a wide selection of lengths and gauges to accommodate any size piercing, and coated straight needles reduce the need for additional lubrication during piercing. Additionally, you can find straight threaded piercing needles that make it easy to install jewellery after piercing.
