How much does body piercing cost?
All piercings have a base price, this is usually around £35. Some are slightly higher but the overall contributing factor to cost is the piece of jewellery the customer chooses for their piercing.
How do I know the quality of the material is safe for my body?
Most body piercing studios will hold their jewellery in implant grade titanium. This should be standard practice across the UK. Studios should hold test certificates for their titanium to show that its implant grade.
What other materials do you stock for jewellery?
In our studio we hold Implant grade titanium, solid 14k and 18k gold as well as platinum.
As well as the base materials, you have a choice of CZ's, Synthetic Opals, Genuine Opals, Natural Stones, Precious and Semi Precious stones, including real Diamonds.
How do I know that your studio is reputable?
In our studio we are happy to answer any questions about the sterilitity of the piercing room, the jewellery, and our equipment. Any studio should happily answer theses questions for you without hostility and answer them to a satisfactory standard.
Studios should hold COSHH data sheets for all chemicals used in the sterilisation process of jewellery and equipment. These should be made available to you if requested.
Do you have to be first aid trained to be a piercer?
The short answer is no you do not, but in our studio the piercer is fully first aid trained above and beyond that what is normally required in a workplace so he can deal with most situations.
Do you use latex gloves?
Most studios will use latex gloves however in our studio we choose to use sterile Nitrile gloves to avoid customers having any form of reactions to the latex as some people do have latex allergies.
How old do you have to be to get a body piercing at your studio?
We pierce anyone from the age of 14 (with a parent present) however most piercings will not be available to you until the age of 16 (with valid I.D). Intimate piercings and nipples are not available until the age of 18 with valid I.D.
