Choosing The Right Piercing Jewelry Part 2 – Gauge – Body Piercing Basics EP45

#jewelry #piercing #DesMoines

In the 45th episode in the series Body Piercing Basics, DaVo begins a new series of videos about how to choose the right jewelry for your piercing. In this first episode, he covers the gauge or thickness of the jewelry.

This video is designed for those new to Body Piercing and as an educational introduction. You should always consult a professional piercer or medical profession before getting any piercing or embarking on a piercing procedure. One of the concepts behind this series is to give the average person the ability to have an educated conversation with their piercer.

I aka DaVo have been a professional body piercer and the owner of the Axiom Body Piercing Studio in Des Moines, Iowa since 1994. My focus on education and helping clients make safe and informed decisions on getting pierced has always been a large part of my business practices and services. With my website and increasingly on youtube, I hope to expand and inform others outside of my small part of the world. I always encourage questions and comments, so if you have one, please comment.
