5 Types of Clamps: Rounded, Rounded Slotted, Closed Pennington, Slotted Pennington, and Universal
An adequate supply of wholesale piercing tools is essential to carry out an effective and safe piercing process. Having high-grade sterilised disposable piercing tools is particularly important for every professional piercer. The most crucial piercing tools are needles, including cannula needles, clamps, and forceps. There are also kits available that contain high-quality piercing needles with the suitable body jewellery for various types of piercings, such as navel, nose, ear and lip. These will satisfy the needs of any professional piercer are also supplied through our wholesale piercing tools and body jewellery website. Apart from these wholesale piercing tools, we supply a vast array of premium quality body jewellery in different sizes, gauges, colours and materials.
Piercings can not be done without these essential body piercing tools supplies. Piercing needles are handheld for precision and are made from biocompatible stainless steel. The larger gauge needles are hollow or hypodermic and have laser-cut tri-bevelled tips that ensure sharpness. For each piercing, the most suitable gauge must be carefully selected. Higher gauges indicate thinner needles.Piercing needles are normally inserted into the body part by hand but sometimes needle holders or pushers are used. While the needle is still in the body, the initial jewellery to be worn is pushed through the opening, following the backside of the piercing needle. The body jewellery is often inserted into the hollow end of the needle so that as the needle pulls through the jewellery is left behind.
These wholesale piercing tools are hollow tubes made of metal, shatter-resistant glass, or plastic and are used to support the tissue at the piercing site. Receiving tubes are commonly used as nose piercing equipment and sometimes for cartilage piercings. Not only are these wholesale piercing tools intended to receive the needle once it has passed through the tissue, offering protection from the sharp point, but they also support the tissue.
Some professional piercers prefer to work with needles that contain a cannula or catheter, which is a hollow plastic tube placed at the end of the needle. In some countries, the needle is regarded as a medical device and is illegal for body piercings, hence the cannula or catheter needle is used. The procedure is similar to a standard piercing method, but the initial jewellery is inserted into the back of the cannula and then pulled through the hole.
Forceps are used in the piercing process as piercing pliers to hold the tissue in place. Forceps can also be used with dermal jewellery to attach the dermal top. They are available in two different types, either in surgical steel or single-use kinds. Wholesale piercing tool clamps ensure a secure grip, so that the needle can be pushed through smoothly and evenly during the piercing procedure. Clamps are also used to hold materials such as cotton and gauze in the piercing process. Certain professional piercers opt for clamps as they are more versatile than forceps. In our bulk body jewellery online shop, we supply five kinds of body piercing clamps which are all EO gas sterilised and for single use.
A dermal punch is used to remove a circular area of tissue, into which the body jewellery is placed. This punch is normally used for dermal piercings and although more precise than a needle, some piercers prefer using a standard piercing needle for this procedure. These piercing equipment available in the UK can also be used for larger cartilage piercings. In some countries, dermal punches are illegal to use by non-medical personnel.
The Association of Professional Piercers does not recommend the use of piercing guns for any type of piercing and requires its members to agree not to use guns in their practice. The safety of these piercing guns, which were originally developed for tagging livestock, is disputed. For this reason, we do not supply piercing guns. Professional piercers are recommended to use piercing needles because they are more hygienic, more precise, and less painful.
Piercing kits in the UK are the perfect tool for any professional piercer who is looking to save time and effort and to work more conveniently.

These body and ear piercing kits are vacuum-sealed and are ready for immediate use.

An autoclave machine is specifically designed to perform sterilisation of piercing equipment in the UK by using high temperature and pressure. This machine has the appearance of a small microwave and is able to carry out effective sterilisation of items by subjecting it to pressurised saturated steam at 121 °C (250 °F). The process takes around 15–20 minutes, depending on the size and the content. It reduces the risks of infection and prevents complications in the healing of the piercing.
Besides using an own autoclave, it is also possible to buy body jewellery and piercing kits that are already Ethylene Oxide (EO) sterilised, which are extremely safe and convenient. Items are individually packed so that the best results are achieved. Ethylene Oxide is a low temperature gaseous, generally used to sterilise a variety of healthcare products, such as medical devices. Buying EO gas sterilised products saves a lot of time and effort for professional piercers and these products are available per piece as well as in bulk.
