Body Piercing Dangers

Staff infections, hepatitis, even AIDS - they are all chances you take when you get a body piercing.

Because of these risks, one local doctor we spoke with says you should consult your physician prior to get a piercing and ask for medication to reduce infections.

You should also make sure you find a parlor that follows all the state safety guidelines.

The parlors should use machines that sterilize the equipment they use.

The temperature inside the machines gets up to 250-degrees, which should kill all of the germs and bacteria.
