can still contain enough nickel to cause problems for very sensitive skin. Many European countries have banned its use for new piercings because of the high rate of allergic reactions. If you're wearing surgical stainless steel jewelry and are having problems with irritation or a new piercing that just won't heal, it's possible that you have a very low tolerance to nickel HOOPS EARRINGS
