    No, numbing gels and sprays can cause severe reaction and are entirely unnecessary!

    No, we stopped doing them, however we can still remove them at a cost of £10.
  • My piercing has got a lump, what should I do?"
    Come by the studio as soon as you can for advice. In the mean time only use sterile saline solution wound wash such as NeilMed or H2Ocean to clean it and avoid products, touching and removing jewellery. No need to book for this, please come at any time. We also have an online guide here.
  • How do I book a piercing appointment.
    You can book your piercing appointment directly on the Piercing Booking page of our website. Please ensure that you read all of the information on the page before booking. You must pay a £20 or £35 deposit in order to secure your booking. This price comes off the balance due on the day of your appointment.
  • Do you use piercing guns?
    No! We only use high quality sterlie, single use needles.
  • Do you pierce female genitals?
    Due to changes in the law regarding FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) female genital piercings are now classed as a mutilation as opposed to a modifaction, therefore we are legally not allowed to perform these piercings.
  • Do I need an appointment to buy jewellery and get it fitted?
    Only if you're getting more than 3 new pieces of jewellery and need them fittings too that we might suggest booking a single appointment. We have a minimum spend of £50 instore spend on jewellery before the deposit comes off. For less than that spend or for one / two new pieces you can just come by anytime without an appointment. This is because we usually book up in advance and tend to turn multiple people away for piercings, that when someone books for jewellery and its super quick we could have seen someone else.
  • How should I prepare for getting a piercing done?
    Have a good nights rest, shower (wash hair if getting an ear piercing), eat a meal at least an hour before coming into the studio and bring a sugary drink with you if you are feeling very nervous.
  • Do you pierce babies and children?
    We do not pierce anyone under the age of 6 years old.
  • Do you sell jewellery and can you fit it for me?
    Yes! We have a vast array of items in stock for every piercing imaginable. We only charge £1 per piercing to change jewellery bought from us, or £5 per piercing to fit jewellery bought elsewhere. You may be best booking an appointment for multiple jewellery purchases & fittings so we have enough time to serve you (£10 deposit deductible off £50 minimum spend). For one / two pieces of jewellery you will likely be fine just walking in during our opening hours. Tuesday - Saturday 12-6.30pm
  • What happens if I turn up late?
    This depends on how late and how long you were booked for. If you're booked for a 1-2 hour slot and you turn up 20+ minutes late, you will lose you deposit and appointment. You will then have to book in again with a new deposit. If you're booked for 5-8 hours and turn up late, you will get the remaining allocated time but be charged in full, including the time you missed.
  • How do I book an appointment?
    You can message us on WhatsApp 07783372019 or pop by the studio during our opening hours.
  • What can I do to prepare for my appointment?
    Sleep well the night before, lay off an alcohol or drunk, drink plenty of water and eat something a couple of hours before. Bring some sweets or fruit, a high sugar drink and maybe a pillow or blanket if you're in for a long time as well as some music or a podcast.
  • Why do you need a deposit?
    Sadly, many people say they will turn up for an appointment and then don't. Your deposit is used to secure your appointment and will come off the remaining balance due on the day.
  • What's your cancellation policy?
    Deposits are non-refundable but dates can be changed, we need a minimum of 48 hours to reschedule an appointment.

  • Can I bring someone with me?
    This is dependant on the tattoo artist and the space available during your appointment.
  • Why can't I see the final design before my appointment?
    The reason we don't allow this is because artwork can be then and copied by another tattoo artist.
