For general body piercing, you must to be 16 years of age or over. I will ask for photo ID if you look under 18. For genital or nipple piercing (male or female), cheek/dahlia piercing and other body modification work, you must be 18 years of age or over. I will ask for photo ID if you look under 21.
Acceptable forms of ID are: UK Passport, UK Drivers Licence (or Provisional) or a CitizenCard (www.citizencard.com). I cannot accept photocopies or birth certificates.
No one who is pregnant/breastfeeding or under the influence of drugs/alcohol will be pierced. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone due to medical or ethical reasons.
PRIVACY & CONFIDENTIALITY
All piercings and other body modification procedures are treated in the strictest confidence. I work in an enclosed room for complete privacy and safety. Piercing is not a spectator sport, so no one is allowed into the piercing area with you (with the exception of genital piercings, where I will allow a chaperone – a friend or partner – in with you).
PARTS OF THE EAR
Most of the piercings shown can be done with a ring or barbell (stud) as the initial jewellery . The jewellery shown above is just to give an indication of where the piercing is.
