“Nickel is an important cause of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) in the general population, both among children and adults, with a worldwide prevalence of around 8.6%. The prevalence among young females is even higher, around 17%.”
Unfortunately, there is a small trace amount of nickel in Surgical Stainless Steel. Have you ever been pierced and your piercing just wouldn’t heal? Or after months & months of being pierced, it is still painful to switch your jewelry.
You have a nickel allergy and should not be pierced with surgical stainless steel. You need titanium or gold to ensure you will heal properly.
For these reasons, I do not pierce minors with surgical stainless steel or any piercing that has a higher rejection rate. For safety reasons please speak to a professional piercer about the metal used for your piercing. Places like Claires can offer cheap piercings because they order fake/cheap jewelry. Resulting in you wasting your money because your piercing will either not heal, or have a very rough heal time.
