Hello everyone,

I'm directing a theatrical piece in March and 2 of the scenes involve acupuncture. I'd like to avoid miming the needles and figured you may be able to answer some questions I have. Is there an easy way I could use acupuncture needles to create the image that they're in the back of a patient without pushing them into the actor? Is there an adhesive or any kind that I could use to safely "glue" needles to an actor? Can I buy needles without a license? Are there safe practice needles that I could use instead of real needles?

Any help is much appreciated,

Danny from Chicago
