Piercing is most commonly done using materials such as thin steel, titanium, gold, and surgical steel. These materials are preferred because they are safe, sterile, and hypoallergenic. Additionally, different materials can be used depending on the characteristics of the piercing location. For example, the material used for ear piercings may differ from that used for lip or tongue piercings.
Additionally, for some individuals, piercings made with organic materials may be more suitable. For example, materials such as bone, marble, stone, wood, or bamboo can also be used. However, these types of materials can be less safe and carry a higher risk of infection. Additionally, these materials may not be sterile or hypoallergenic. Therefore, it is important for piercings to be done by an experienced professional and for safe materials to be used.
