Human pincushion question

(cross-posted)

I am starting a cabaret/sideshow here in Milwaukee. Along with being the emcee, and providing accordion music while waltzing on broken glass, I also am going to be the human pincushion. I know there is a special kind of needle that needs to be used, and I know there is a way to do it without making myself bleed heavily, or leaving massive amounts of scar tissues - but I don't know how to do it, or what kind of needles to use.

Can anyone help me out with this, or at least direct me to someone who might be able to?

Thanks!
