Body modification dates back to the time of early Egypt, where High Priestesses had navel piercings and were the only one permitted to do piercing as part of ritual magic.
Since then body piercing has found its way into many cultures worldwide, and today is hugely popular with a wide cross section of people.

Before piercing we require that you complete a consent form
If you are under 16years you will need parental consent
Then a mini health questionnaire.
During this time we look at factors that will slow healing or make piercing inapporiate.
Also During this health check we will also look at any jewellery allergies you might have, this will determine what jewellery choice you can make to get pierced with.
Wendy is very good about talking you through the piercing as she is doing it and afterwards she gives you a run down on how to look after your jewellery. Before leaving the shop you are given written aftercare instructions and contact phone numbers.
if you have any problems please ring us.

There is such a big choice of jewellery available for your piercings, clients are often left feeling confused about what to put in them. Here are a few helpful suggestions.
Always wash your hands before and after touching your piercing
Clean new jewellery thoroughly
Before inserting new jewellery clean you piercing gently with protex soap and rinse well
Ensure you have a piece of jewellery that is right for your piercing ie right thickness, length and shape
Clean jewellery thoroughly we recommend an alcohol wipe
Apply some body piercing gel/lubricant (or water based lubricant) to enable the jewellery to slide smoothly through without damaging your piercing
Don’t swap jewellery with your friends diseases such as hep C live outside the body for up to 30 days, boiling and cleaning with alcohol does not kill them.
Silver is only good for your ears and nose
Silver in deeper piercings; serve reaction may occur causing infection and black staining of the skin.
Silver jewellery in lips, nipples and belly’s piercings is usually very thin and causes damage to the piercing and increases chances of being ripped out.
We only use the highest quality surgical steel in our jewellery this is the most common piercing jewellery metal.
We find only a small percentage of clients can not wear our surgical steel , just be very careful when buying jewellery that it comes from a good firm.
Buying cheap surgical steel jewellery may look nice but leads to nasty red, sore and sometimes infected piercings, due to the high nickel content of the metal.
These are surgical quality plastic materials stolen from the medical profession to combat allergies and nickel leaching from body jewellery. The evidence available shows that piercing with these materials speeds healing and establishes a piercing very quickly. They are also great for those clients who are unsure of whether or not they have a metal allergy.
Much lighter and better quality than surgical steel, very popular as it is usually a bright-multicoloured metal . Very rarely will clients react to oxided colour. Is more expensive but well worth it. Is very light wieght and most clients remark that it tastes better when worn in mouth.
True black line is a plastic type coating on jewellery and is hard wearing very low allergenic a great product to look at and wear. There are cheap versions on the market be careful of these as the coatings flake off.
Is a light weight product that looks very like gold but doesn’t tarnish or discolour. Very low allergenic and hard wearing a much cheaper often better alternative to gold.
9ct gold should only be worn in ears and nose as it is only 37 percent gold the rest is nickel and other metals.
Never wear 9ct gold in mouth, nipples, belly or genital piercings this can causes very nasty reactions and infections.
14CT or above gold
Is safe for all piercings only draw backs are the metal is soft so take care with threads, and depending on piercing, it can discolour a little.
Gold plated jewellery should only be used in a healed piercing
