hmmm is your freand into the side show? maibe he wants them for the human pincushion. if thats what he needs them for maibe he should go to slim and kristas websight and learn more about it first or maibe he should go take a class at coney island. I dont know about syringes being used for pincushion but you never know. He should go to a medical suply place.

Most syringes come without the needle section. There are a huge variety of needle sizes and types that are interchangeable with the equally large variety of syringes. Tuberculin syringes and the types used for administering insulin (subcutaneously) have the needle attached. You need a prescription for those types (but they are available at most pharmacies).

What does he need them for?

that is the addres for slim and kristas site. It is a must for anybody considering becomeing a sideshow artist. I realy Andy knows what hes doing. Not only can you peire a blood vessel but you can also get hepititis and numarouse other infections if you dont use sterilized equipment. I dont know alot about the details of pincushion except it is vary dangerous. you should learn it from a profesional and not from a book. best of luck to your freand

Thanks for the plug. Many of the name "pin-pros" visit us often.and we like to help. Your advice is quite proper. Suggest that your frieng seek out a medical supply house and be candid about what he wants, and what for. It isn't necessary to but the syringes, the needles are available separately, in quantity. Also, if you want to spend the small amount of time needed to sharpen and polish, we prowl thrift stores and such for things like ornate old hatpins.
When I had an act called "The Inhuman Man" I often just used big safety pins. My favorite was to push a safety pin through the back of my hand, in and out, and then close it. BTW, it is also very easy to gaff safety pins to "accesorize" the act. In the current time, with so many new and old diseases around, and antibiotics failing sterility is now very importantvery important. As you must know, Krista and I teach all the arts, so if you're on the west coast, (San Diego) give us a nod, our door is always open. Suggest to your friend that a Zen-mind is useful. :sun:

In many states it is legal to purchase diabetic hypos without a perscription. The other easy source is a well stocked vet supply/livestock shop. Hope that helps...
