Question:

i wana get my tongue peirced, the only metal im not allergic to right now is surgical steel?

will peircers use surgical steel? how do you know for sure what they are using?

Answer:

DO NOT USE SURGICAL STEEL. Use IMPLANT GRADE stainless steel, or, even better, IMPLANT GRADE titanium. surgical steel is a marketing term, pioneered by a cutlery company to make their cutlery seem cleaner. So basically, surgical steel can be anything from the forks and knives in your house, to the rusty tools in the shed, whilst implant grade stainless steel is specifically made for medical uses in the body (pins in your foot or a pacemaker in your heart.)

Most reputable piercers will use surgical steel. You can ask them beforehand and they will let you know what it is they are piercing you with. You can go out and buy a ring of your own and have them sterilize and use that to Peirce you with. Like I said though, most places do use surgical steel. I wouldn't worry too much. :) Just make sure you ask to be sure. Good luck!

When you go to get your tongue pierced they will tell you exactly what their doing and what their using. And I had my belly button pierced, and my boyfriend has his tongue and eye brow pierced and it's all done with surgical steel. Piercers wont use anything but that.
