ANATOMY, HEALING, JEWELLERY

  • Jewellery fitting and piercing placement are 100% anatomy dependent & we reserve the right to refuse to fit jewellery or piercing a placement if the piercer feels it is inappropriate, not suited to the individual anatomy or unlikely to heal well. If this is the case, the piercer will usually advise and quite often can offer many alternatives. 

 

  • In order to adhere to health and safety protocols, we will not in any circumstance fit or pierce with any jewellery that has been previously worn or sourced outside the studio.

 

  • Something that is aesthetically pleasing on one person may not necessarily look the same on another, due to anatomy varying greatly from individual to individual. We all look online for inspiration, however, some styles/pictures found on the internet are often unfortunately not realistic in terms of suitability or practicality, with some placements being altogether dangerous and really shouldn't have been pierced at all. Some images may be photoshopped or may have been pierced poorly by a less experienced practitioner. But don’t worry that's not to say you can’t have something aesthetically pleasing and well suited to you. It's just important to be mindful and realistic of our expectations of what may or may not be possible.

 

  • Rings. Quite often we are asked if we can pierce with a ring, usually very small and thin. Unfortunately in most, if not all cases, it is not possible to fit rings this way in an initial or healing piercing. For a piercing to heal correctly, it requires suitable jewellery of size and shape, which can provide stability. (Petite rings can usually be fitted once successfully healed). Piercings that can be done with rings initially, for example, a “Daith” jewellery will most likely need to be quite large in gauge and diameter in order for it to be anatomically suitable to heal well.

 

  •  Please take into consideration that we aim to offer a safe and professional piercing experience only our business is founded on offering our services from a place of integrity refusal, unfortunately, can quite often be met with offence - this is never intentional, as you the client are the number one priority. Anything advised by the piercer is with you and your wellbeing in mind at all times. We want you to have a safe experience, we do not want to offer a service that may unnecessarily put you at risk or potentially cause you problems. We prioritise health and safety and ask that in any circumstance you respect the advice given and are not abusive or disrespectful to staff. 

  • Jewellery loss, we do not accept responsibility for loss of jewellery, jewellery coming out or piercings healing over.  Once leaving the studio, it is the piercee's responsibility to ensure jewellery attachments are secure and that they do not remove their jewellery whilst the piercing is still healing as part of their commitment to following proper aftercare advice and protocols. 

  • Jewellery losses or any accidental/deliberate damage are not covered by manufacturers' guarantees, lifetime guarantees cover any potential manufacturer defects only.
