Q: Getting an ear piercing in China

Just seen the question about tattoos and thought of this. Anyone done it before? Are there places that are sanitary enough? I was thinking about reminiscing my youth days....

I thought any place that sold earrings could pierce. It just requires alcohol and the device is like a stapler. You could use a sterilized needle and cork or ice cube.

 I had one ear pierced before it became popular, when everyone else started, I didn't bother any more.

I generally try to avoid activities that involve being pierced with a needle here (wasn't there a disturbing question about having blood drawn recently?)

 

If you don't die from it though, you'll have a pretty bad-ass story though...

There used to be a tattoo van conveniently placed outside several bars in the Wudaokou area of Beijing. They did piercings too I believe. Good marketing strategy too - park outside a load of student expat bar and wait until around 2 or 3 in the morning until flocks of drunk students come and decide it would be a great idea to get their lip pierced/arse tattooed.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
