Anonymous asked: Hi! In reference about the question you were asked about one needle used to make four separate holes, why exactly is it that the same needle cant be used in the same sitting on one client? Just super curious. thanks :)

The cutting portion of the needle will become extremely dull after being used once compared to being unused. A dull needle will cause more unwanted trauma and discomfort for the piercee as opposed to a new unused needle.

Piercing needles are very finely sharpened, they are not designed to be used for more than one puncture. Here are some pictures that illustrate how quickly a beveled needle dulls from use. These are pictures of syringe needles (very similar in design to piercing needles) under magnification after use.
