No. For many different reasons , the main one being there is no safe and hygienic way to pierce any anatomy using the gun method. We use both blades and cannula style needles for all procedures.
We are experienced (and accustomed to) nervous clients. We deal with each person on an individual basis. You are more than welcome to discuss the procedure and familiarise yourself with the studio beforehand by booking a jewellery consultation appointment.
Most piercings heal much better when they are pierced with a straight bar, however some piercings are ok to be pierced with a ring please ask and we will give all relevant information to help you make an informed decision, with that being said there are some piercings that we will not do with a ring at all.
Have a good nights sleep, a shower and eat something substantial at least 45 minutes beforehand. Don’t attend the studio if you are hungover or poorly. Bring your valid identification, a choclate bar and some lucozade or other sugary drink. Book piercing appointments after hair appointments as cutting and colouring hair can cause unnecessary trauma to a brand new piercing.
This decision is yours to make after receiving advice from your surgeon. Generally once you have received all your follow up appointments there will be no issues. However some surgeons recommend waiting longer.
While it’s not always essential to remove your piercing, in some cases it will be. Discuss this with your physician and if needed we can assist you.
