FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. How old do I have to be to be pierced?
You need to be 16 with photographic I.D or you need to be accompanied by your parent.

Q. Do I need an appointment?
No, we operate a walk-in system, however if your piercing is gender specific we advise that you call us first.

Q. How long does a piercing take to heal?
This depends on not only the piercing, but also the person.  General health, wellbeing and aftercare are all important factors. Our body piercers will advise you on healing times according to what piercing you're getting..

Q. Does it hurt?
Most people will experience a certain amount of discomfort when being pierced. We can minimise this by using a topical anaesthetic when suitable. As experienced body piercers, the duration of the piercing is kept to a minimum. 

Q. Can I use my own jewellery?
 No. In accordance with EU regulations we only pierce with pre-sterilised titanium jewellery which has no nickel content.

Q. Will my piercing reject?
Any piercing can migrate over time. Please remember that your skin is a living organism and a piercing is a foreign object. Everyone is different and your body may not accept it.

Q. My piercing is red and sore. Is it infected?
In all probability ? No. It is completely normal for your piercing to secrete fluid, develop dry residue or become reddened around the entrance and exit of the piercing. Don't expect your piercing to look fully healed straight away. However, if you are concerned, please call in and we can give further advice.

Q. Do you do tattoos?
No. However, we offer laser tattoo removal.
