And how does it work?
The professional body piercer will use a saline bag, tube and needle. It works in a similar way to a hospital drip, so the bag needs to be raised above the body part picked for puffing. * Body inflators never make their own saline solution and steer clear of tap water, due to the risk of infection. * The needle is placed under the skin but not in a vein – or the build-up of pressure could mean exploding blood vessels all over the show. * While it’s not that dangerous, some people who’ve done it regularly have found their skin has permanently explanded. * The most interesting place to inflate is the forehead, as the taut skin means the effects are extremely obvious. * Inflatees can prod the inflated lumps to make them look more interesting.
