safepiercing:

Guns should never be used on anything, period. There is no pro to a piercing gun.
  • Piercing guns are NEVER sterilized in those little mall kiosks or stores, seriously. Ask to see their sterilization equipment and they’ll most likely show you an alcohol wipe. So an alcohol wipe is all that…

I had my ears pierced with a gun at first, at Clair’s Accessories.  The swelling was very painful and I kept wanting to fiddle with the stud.  Eventually, after weeks of it not healing at all, it started leaking pus/blood and I took them out.  About 18 months later I got them done at a piercing and tattoo place that my friend had already gone to for piercings.  The stud felt comfortable in my ear and frankly the guy was a lot nicer/more reassuring than the woman who did it at Clair’s.  So yeah, guns are not good.
