Body piercing and it's roots go back centuries to various countries and civilizations, some for religious reasons and some for cultural rights of passage. Ultimately the history can vary from one person to the next depending on who you ask. Ultimately the modern piercing movement is based on self expression and piercing doesn't define the person or their position in today's society. From the early sailors and the mythical sea fairing beliefs, right up to today's modern primitives body piercing has evolved by leaps and bounds.
There are some who would say, "body piercing isn't regulated", they are dreadfully wrong. Body piercing is regulated, there just isn't the heavy regulations one would expect with something as invasive as body piercing. Each village, town or city has it's own set of local regulations governing how these facilities conduct business. Health inspections are mandatory prior to a facility opening for business to the general public. However not everyone plays by the simple rules that are set down. Hackers, these wannabe be individuals who suddenly think, "gee I want to do body piercing" will set up shop. Usually in their home basements, unlicensed and uninspected because they want to fly under the radar of licensing authorities and health inspectors. What does this mean for you? Well if you are smart enough, you avoid these clowns at all cost, they have there eye on the kids. The minors, who don't have the age required by local regulations to get a piercing in a licensed and inspected facility generally fall prey to these hackers. Here at Common Sense Piercing we will look further into these issues and give you the latest up to date information available.
