Silver Lining was established in 2002 and in the intervening 20 years has expanded to 6 locations around the north of England.
We are successful, because people like what we do: Clean, professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
We research our field, we train staff to a very high standard and Silver Lining has over 40 years of piercing experience between us.
We are constantly keeping up with the latest trends, new developments and best practice, sharing information amongst our team of nearly 20 people.
All of our equipment is hospital grade (vacuum autoclaves and sterilisers) and we train all of our staff in maintaining a sterile environment and in infection control. Our studios are scrupulously clean.
We are pro choice at Silver Lining. We offer many choices:
You can be pierced with surgical implant grade titanium or 14 carat gold, with internally threaded jewellery for a smoother piercing (that some say is less uncomfortable and quicker to heal) which is a little more expensive, or externally threaded jewellery, which is cheaper.
We pierce earlobes with either traditional earrings with butterfly backs (the first choice of most children) although we advise people that if they swell more than normal we will have to change the earring for a titanium bar, or with a needle piercing with a longer titanium bar, which is more appropriate for larger earlobes or people who have a tendency to swell significantly.
We will never tell you what to do with your body, or what to choose (unless you ask us to). We can offer you all the information and allow you to make an informed choice.
Our team will be with you all the way until your piercing has healed and you are more than welcome to visit any of our shops for regular check-ups, or contact us via our website or social media accounts for advice and aftercare.
We are looking forward to your visit!
