Where can I find a piercing artist who uses numbing agents?

Most numbing agents that piercers can use are topical (surface of the skin) and take a long time to start working, and as they soak into the skin they tend to screw up the texture of the skin making placement of the piercing difficult. Injection numbing agents are not legal to be used by body piercers in North America. The body piercer needs to be a medical professional holding a valid license before they can use injection solutions.
