    I did Beauty Therapy at college and did a "course" on using a piercing gun - Just 3 hours sat in a room, a woman read some stuff off a sheet, we did a practice piercing on a friend and that was literally it! I think I used mine twice then never touched it again. £30 well spent XD

    Rk22 - Just a thought as I have had a few problems lately with all of my ear piercing's - It was suggested I try BPA oil every night. It is certainly doing something. Please ask for needle piercings in future. I refuse the gun now-a-days. When I had my ears and nose pierced all they had was a gun and they took forever to heal and hurt a lot.
