Piercing FAQ's

Do piercings hurt?

Piercings are very quick to do and although it will pinch slightly, clients describe the process not as bad as they were expecting it to be.

How is my piercing performed?

All piercings are performed with single use, sterilised, surgical needles. They are extremely sharp which makes the whole process as painless as possible. We do not use ‘piercing guns’ whatsoever as these use blunt jewellery to pierce with causing extreme trauma to the body and increases healing times and in some cases results in a piercing not to heal.

Can I go swimming after having a piercing?

We would advise that you avoid swimming for at least 4 weeks, however if you are still not healed then check back with us for guidance.

Will my piercing get infected?

Infections are most commonly the result of improper aftercare.  By sticking to the aftercare guidance provided, infections are extremely rare.  Some people take longer to heal and therefore continuing the aftercare past the suggested time frame might be required; however over cleaning and under cleaning is to be avoided. Stick with the aftercare instructions given to you after your piercing.
