Needles are a key material for banding. People who apply piercings professionally do so with needles made only for piercings and for medical use. Needles that are not designed for piercing make smaller holes in the skin than necessary and the result is that piercings or jewelry cannot be inserted into the skin. If the piercing is forcibly inserted, tearing of the piercing occurs.
Straight needles or Precission Needles are catheterless needles specialized for piercings, also called American needles or American straight needles, which are mainly used for piercings in complex areas. In addition to being straight needles, these needles are lubricated, hollow and sterilized and are the most popular needles in the medical and piercing industry. The diameter of the straight American needles are 14G 3 and 16G 3 and 2″, the choice of the needle diameter will depend on the type of piercings to be performed.
