– The tissue may tighten around the jewellery as it works through the healing process.

If you’re worried about your piercing please contact us and call into the studio as soon as you can. It’s imperative our piercer takes a look if you have any doubt.

In most cases you can, however it’s best to pop into the shop so our piercer can have a look. If it’s a recent piercing that you took out which has only just closed up, it’s recommended to wait at least 4 weeks prior to re-piercing.

Potentially, yes. If a piercing becomes infected it is usually down to the person not following the aftercare guidelines they have been given. Our piercer will briefly explain and go through the aftercare with you initially, and we also automatically send our aftercare information via email once you fill out our Consent Form/Waiver.

We only use needle blades. It is not recommended to use a piercing gun. A piercing needle is the better option, for many reasons. Needles are cleaner, more accurate, and less painful than guns. The healing process is also a lot better when a needle is used.

The needles are one use only.  All jewellery, needle blades and utensils are sterilized and packaged on a daily basis.

Our piercer will advise you of the healing time for your particular piercing however the process can vary from person to person.

If you change your jewellery before your piercing has completely healed, this could potentially re-open the piercing wound. By doing so, this will affect your healing process and will require you to follow your aftercare more thoroughly to prevent any possible infection. You can also irritate your new piercing by changing the jewellery, even if you take special care. If you are still keen to change your jewellery then we advise you wait until after the piercing is no longer tender to touch.

The majority of piercings can be done if you are age 17+. This excludes Industrial, Septum, Dermal/Surface, Nipple and Tongue, for these you must be 18 or over. If you are under the age of 18 and wish to get one of these piercings listed, you must have your parent or legal guardian with you in the shop to give consent.

We use only implant grade titanium, and we also have nickel free Gold options, 14k or 18k, both are optimal for healing.

– Dry your piercing after showering with a hairdryer to avoid excess build up of liquid in your piercing.

WHAT TO AVOID:

– Avoid touching the piercing with your fingers or moving the jewellery if the piercing remains unhealed.

– Do not use your fingers to pick any discharge that may have dried, this can be removed with the use of an ear bud.

– Try to avoid using healing creams or any alcohol / hydrogen-based creams when cleaning.

– Do not use any ointments as they prevent the air from circulating which is necessary for the healing process.

– Avoid playing with the jewellery and any vigorous cleaning. Try to limit the amount of friction caused from clothing. These activities can cause scar tissue to form, will prolong the healing process and may lead to further complications.

– It is recommended to protect your piercing using a waterproof, wound sealant bandage when in swimming pools, lakes, hot tubs etc. These bodies of water can be very unhygienic therefore you must ensure to protect the piercing. These bandages are available to purchase in most pharmacies.
