Piercing guns are also not sterile. Only the earing itself is sterile, but the gun is plastic and isn't able to get washed that well. A needle is always brand new and they open it in front of you.

A gun causes damage to the lobe, while the needle pierces the lobe. You can look it up at the Professional Piercers Association, that have a lot of why the gun is not recommended. They may also have a list of reputable parlors in your area.
