Well, what a welcome! You have all be utterly wonderful and we cannot thank you enough for being so supportive, kind and generally lovely during this first week of piercing.
Today I’ll be giving you a highlight reel of some of the piercing work we have done this month! We have experienced everything from the excitement of first lobe piercings, to the more unusual including vertical scaffolds and intimate piercings.
My personal favourite piercings that Aiden has done this month are the weird and wonderful. Anything to do with big needles makes me so happy! Large-gauge lobes are the perfect way to skip the hassle of stretching lobes. We can pierce up to 5mm, and clients often find it easier than standard stretched lobes to stretch up to 8-10mm once healed. You can see some photos of these badass guys and their cool new additions below!
We have also had a run on bridges recently. We think it’s due to the currently mask mandate. It’s one of the few facial piercings we are offering right now, and one of the few that are visible when you wear a mask! Bridges are a complex piercing to perform simply because they have to be aligned and even in three planes of view.
Jess has been working hard on her apprentice piercings for the last three weeks! She has been doing an amazing job working on rooks, navels, forward helixes and scaffold piercings. She still has a few slots left for apprentice-rate navel, scaffold and forward helix piercings! Get in touch via her work account to claim your slot. There are only a limited quantity of each, so get in quickly!
Aside from apprentice work, Jess has been working with some beautiful anatomy recently. We love that every single client is different. It’s what makes this line of work so exciting! Gold jewellery has been very popular this week, and you can see a stunning example below.
We love using BVLA jewellery. It adds a special touch to any piercing, no matter how simple. Our next BVLA order deadline is Sunday, May 16th. Get in touch before then in order to secure your place! Custom ordering from BVLA is no more expensive than if the item was in our studio, and you can customise the item to even the smallest minutiae.
I have been working hard behind the scenes – I may not be a piercer but I have been carefully curating all of our jewellery orders for over a year now. It’s a wonderful feeling to see a client fall in love with a piece of jewellery that you also adore. We have recently received our latest Anatometal order, and I happily chose a few statement pieces that can be purchased both in store and through our website!
Again, we can’t believe the wonderful welcome we have received from the lovely people of Nottingham. We might make this a monthly series where you can see the best of that months piercing portfolio!
See you soon,
