Abstract: A subset $ X$ of $ {E^3}$ is said to be universally pierced if each $ 2$-sphere containing $ X$ can be pierced by a tame arc at each point of $ X$. We show that an arc $ A$ is universally pierced provided $ A$ has a shrinking point $ p$ such that either $ p$ lies in a tame arc in $ A$ or $ {E^3} - A$ has $ 1$-ALG at $ p$. Applying this result we show the existence of infinitely many wild universally pierced arcs.
