Piercing Jewelry Metals and Materials Body Piercing Basics Ep 04

In the Fourth Episode of Body Piercing Basic, DaVo continues to focus on vocabulary by covering Jewelry metal and materials related terms. DaVo, a Professional Piercer since 1994, covers the most common terms used to describe what body piercing jewelry is made of. This video is designed for those new to Body Piercing and as an educational introduction. You should always consult a professional piercer before buying jewelry if you are unsure of the size and style. One of the concepts behind this series is to give the average person the ability to have an educated conversation about Jewelry 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.
