In Season 2 Episode 43, DaVo covers the Pros and Cons of Getting Pierced. This video covers just the pros and cons. Look for future videos covering everything you would need to know before getting the piercings and include what you should consider beforehand the piercing experience, jewelry, living with the piercing, and abandoning the piercing. 

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.
