All jewellery used for fresh piercings is made of high-quality titanium, which confirms to UK Nickel Directive regulations and is individually bagged and sterilized to health authority standards prior to use. All tools are sterilized prior to use and all needles are discarded into a sharps bin after its single use.
The whole studio, including piercing room, reception, and other rooms, are cleaned and sterilised daily. The piercing room is kept clean throughout the day and spot clean/sterilisation is performed as needed after piercing appointments.
Aftercare information is given to every customer at the time of the piercing. All customers are given a leaflet with the discussed information as well as a sample of sea salt/mouthwash to get them started.
All staff keep up to date with Hepatitis vaccination and the piercers wear surgical gloves which are discarded and replaced after each client. The gloves are mostly made of Latex. However, if you have a latex allergy, please let us know so the piercer can wear a latex free surgical glove.
