Industrial Sterilisation of Piercing Supplies and Jewellery

sterilisitaion of piercer equipment

Ethylene Oxide Gas Sterilisation

Ethylene Oxide (EO) is a gas that is commonly used for low temperature sterilisation of body piercing supplies in the UK that rids all microorganisms including bacteria, virus and fungi. Although it is mainly used in the medical profession, it is also used to sterilise piercing equipment and supplies. Because of the hazards of this gas to the human body, our sterilisation is carried out under strict conditions in a medical facility. Here the lengthy but foolproof process includes professional aeration of the body jewellery and piercing supplies to disseminate any residual gas. All our wholesale piercing equipment and supplies for the UK are sterilised according to the certified quality standard of ISO 9001:2008 and JCI. These comply with quality standards for various devices and products that are used in hospitals. The vacuum sealed packaging of body piercing supplies ensures the highest quality suitable for all piercing professionals.

autoclave sterilising machine for body piercing

Autoclave Sterilisation

An autoclave machine is frequently used in hospitals and works with pressurised steam to sterilise equipment. This method can also be applied to body jewellery and body piercing supplies but a professional autoclave required for the sterilisation process is expensive. The actual process of sterilisation to ensure the highest quality professional piercing supplies is simple. The jewellery and piercing equipment and supplies that need to be sterilised have to be placed in separated sterilisation packages. Each autoclave has different settings and methods to sterilise body jewellery and piercing supplies, so the instruction manual has to be checked. It is important to handle the sterilisation process with gloves to prevent any cross-contamination.

Although it is mainly used in the medical profession, it is also used to sterilise piercing equipment and supplies.

Cleansing of Piercing Supplies and Jewellery

There are different methods available for the cleansing of body jewellery, piercing equipment and supplies. These are deemed less effective than sterilisation but can serve the purpose of superficial sanitising. The use of medical detergent that contains Sodium Dodecyl Benzene Sulfonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, and Sodium Tripolyphosphate is one method. This has to be done with warm water, a steel brush and rubber gloves. Alternatively, using a chemical bath with Wavicide or a similar glutaraldehyde-based solution can be done in a well-ventilated room. The body jewellery and piercing supplies have to be soaked for a period of time and carefully rinsed in cold distilled water before drying. 

Another method suitable for light cleansing is the soaking in alcohol for at least 15 minutes is. It must be noted however that alcohol may discolour the body jewellery and piercing supplies and can irritate the skin as it is a drying agent. Peroxide can also be used for the soaking process but it may cause the body jewellery and body piercing tools and supplies to smell. Body jewellery used in oral piercings can be soaked in antiseptic rinse or mouthwash.

The easiest methods of gently sanitising body jewellery and body piercing supplies for the UK is by boiling them for at least 15 to 20 minutes or by using a fragrance-free soap and warm water to wash the items for at least 10 minutes.

Piercing Clamps and Forceps

Forceps are body piercing instruments used to hold tissue in place and can also help manipulate body jewellery to place them. They are often used for eyebrow, lip, cheek, tongue, tragus, nipple, and genital piercings. There are five kinds of disposable EO gas sterilised forceps and clamps. These forceps are to secure tissue in place and clamps can also be used to handle piercing materials such as cotton and gauze. They can be used to apply pressure to the tissue, acting as hemostats to reduce the blood flow. The five kinds of piercing tools are

  • Rounded top forceps 
  • Rounded slotted top forceps 
  • Closed Pennington clamps
  • Slotted Pennington clamps
  • Universal Pennington clamps

These body piercing clamps ensure a secure grip so that the needle can be pushed through accurately and smoothly during the piercing procedure. The three kinds of body piercing tools supplied are universal, closed top and slotted top clamps, which are all EO gas sterilised and made for single use. These professional piercing supplies are sold wholesale in the UK in boxes of 10 or 50 pieces.

Tubes for delicate Piercings

Receiving tubes are hollow metal, shatter-resistant glass, or plastic tubes which are used to support the tissue at the piercing site. They are most often used as piercing instruments for certain nose piercings, cartilage and Prince Albert piercings. After the piercing needle has passed through the tissue, the receiving tube protects the sharp point of the needle from hitting the surrounding flesh and also supports the pierced tissue.

Surgical steel is produced in colours such as black, rose gold, and gold.
Titanium G23ASTM F-136 titanium (Ti6Al4V ELI) is used medically for body implants because it is highly resistant to corrosion. Titanium can be anodised to create colours such as metallic blue, metallic green, metallic purple, and more.
925 Sterling SilverSilver has the lustre of both surgical steel and titanium but is a precious and more expensive metal. It is a high quality material that is ideal for body jewellery like sterling silver nose studs. However it is not often used for body piercing supplies in the UK as it is an expensive metal.
GoldOne of the most sought after body jewellery materials is gold. Hypoallergenic with a yellow colour but is also produced as white and rose gold. Because of the preciousness of the material and price, gold is not often used for body piercing supplies in the UK but for high end body jewellery. 9kt, 14kt and 18kt gold are mixed with silver or copper to make it stronger and more affordable.
PTFEPTFE is a type of flexible and biocompatible plastic ideal for piercings located at high traffic body parts where the skin moves or expands. This material can be stretched or reduced to fit the customer’s piercing. It is also lightweight, comfortable, and can reduce the healing time.
BioFlexBioFlex is a biological plastic specifically formulated to aid healing and healthy piercings. It generally reduces the healing time by up to half. It is heat resistant, making it a practical option for customers.
AcrylicAcrylic is a type of glass that is biocompatible and a more economical option when combined with titanium or surgical steel. It is safe for new piercings as it does not react with the skin and does not cause irritation.
SiliconSilicon is a tetravalent metalloid which is suitable for those with metal allergies. It is a great alternative to acrylic as it is soft, flexible, and easy to clean.

Piercing Aftercare Instructions

Aftercare instructions

Each piercing site has different healing times and although the aftercare protocols may differ slightly, the aftercare instructions should always be provided by professional piercers. This should be discussed with the wearer before starting the piercing procedure so that the required commitment is understood. Proper aftercare minimizes the chances of infections that can cause migration and rejection of body jewellery. 

After the piercing, there could be some bleeding, localised swelling, tenderness, discolouration, itching, or bruising. A white-yellow secretion of body plasma will appear and will dry. This must not be peeled off forcibly. The body jewellery should also not be moved or twisted by force. Piercings might look healed quickly but because healing happens from the surface inwards, the inner tissue may still be sensitive while the outside looks normal. 

Before touching the piercing area to conduct aftercare cleaning, the wearer must always wash hands. Cleaning solutions, such as sterile saline and salt solutions, should be used to soak the piercing site and the body jewellery. The easiest method is to use a clean gauze saturated with saline solution dabbed on the piercing site. This should be done between 2 to 6 times a day, depending on the piercing. Alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or soaps containing triclosan should be avoided as these can dry out the piercing area. To dry the area, it can be gently patted with clean, disposable paper.

Wearers should also be encouraged to avoid stress, recreational drugs, excessive caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol during the healing period.
