Anyone can buy needles online? Whats your point, i know of nobody who has had problems with a gun , the earrings arnt too blunt, the ones you get from caflon and very sharp and for use of the gun only, and nobody can just poke away with a gun, they need a license, the council need to know and they need insurance, none of that and they will face big consequences.
Any reputable piercer will reiterate the problems that I have mentioned about piercing guns, especially when used on cartilage. A sterile needle is considerably sharper than an earring used in guns and therefore requires far less force in order to pierce the tissue, resulting in less trauma to the tissue.

It took a year to completely heal and no matter how well I looked after it, it got a bit sore every few weeks BUT sleeping on it and my hair didn't help the healing process - it's all good now
Cost me £20 because it was 2 holes and a bar.
I did a lot of research and everywhere said go to a reputable person who uses needles - guns can actually shatter the cartilage as you're firing an (almost) blunt object through your skin. Needles are a lot more sterile because once it's used it is thrown away unlike a gun which has to be cleaned after each use - so there is trusting the person using it to clean it properly.
