10 Dumb Piercings - Body Piercing Basics EP 37

In the 37th Episode of Body Piercing Basic, DaVo covers the subject of 10 Piercing that he advises against getting pierced and the many risks and issues involved with these piercings. Including:

  1. Snake Eyes, trans-lobe or horizontal tongue piercings
  2. Venom or Surface to Surface Tongue Piercings
  3. Vampire or Gum piercings
  4. Ashley Piercing
  5. Dahlia or Joker piercing
  6. Surface Tragus
  7. Anti-Eyebrow
  8. Mandibular Piercing
  9. Hand & finger Webbing
  10. Finger piercings

You should never consider any of these piercing without having a consultation with a well-experienced piercer. They should bring up risks for getting the piercing and do so without being asked. Also, they should have photos of HEALED examples of the piercing. 

This video is designed for those new to Body Piercing and as an educational introduction. You should always consult a professional piercer or medical profession before getting any piercing or embarking on a piercing procedure. One of the concepts behind this series is to give the average person the ability to have an educated conversation about the piercing will be done with their piercer.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment.
