We use British standard titanium jewellery for all our body piercings.
All of our jewellery and tools are sterilised in hospital grade autoclaves. Our studios keep the highest of hygiene standards as inspected by environmental health and an infection control nurse.
All of our piercings, even earlobes, are done in a private room and we discuss placement and explain all procedures thoroughly. We aim to be friendly, welcoming and professional.
Our piercings are done using the blade piercing method (very sharp needle) for quicker healing times and less disruption to the pierced area. We don’t use cannula needles, so no nasty plastic tubes, and bleeding is kept to a minimum for a healthier piercing. We will also numb the area beforehand, where possible.
Ear lobe piercings are done using the ‘Studex’ piercing method. We apply finger pressure for a controlled and comfortable piercing that doesn’t disrupt ear tissue - no guns needed! Studex are a reputable and reliable company that we can trust to provide us with 100% hygienic products.
Each piercing is subject to a minimum age, you may be required to provide ID or parental permission.
We’re always open to suggestions and unique projects. Get in touch with your ideas - we’d love to get involved!
After visiting us, your piercer will explain how to best care for your new piercing. We recommend following these steps to ensure your piercing heals quickly and healthily. If you require further guidance or assistance, don’t hesitate to pop in to any of our stores, message us on social media or send us an email.
* Clean new piercings at least once a day.
* Wash your hands before applying aftercare.
* Keep the area around the piercing as dry as possible.
* Apply saltwater soaks twice daily. Use boiled water that has been allowed to cool, add a ¼ teaspoon of sea salt per mug of water.
* Let air circulate around the piercing whenever possible.
* Wear clean, loose clothes around body piercings.
* Check that all balls are securely tightened at least twice a week.
* Taking Vitamin C and Zinc supplements may help speed healing time.
* Do not change the jewellery for 6-8 weeks, except oral piercings which can usually be changed after 2 weeks.
* Do not use strong antiseptics and creams.
* Do not attempt to increase the size of the piercing until it has fully healed.
* If a piercing gets infected, contact us or your GP for advice/removal.
* Itchiness, redness and a crusty secretion around the piercing is normal during the healing process and doesn’t mean your piercing is infected.
