Wow! What a week! Things have finally started to get back to some semblance of normality in our little studio tucked away in the heart of the Lace Market. It has been a long lockdown for us, as it has for all of us, and we cannot express how happy we are to be back in, piercing and putting smiles on people’s faces. Piercing is a strong part of our identity and to be able to provide this for all of you means more to us than we could write down. If you want to read more about how the studio has changed, take a look here.
In this blog we will be looking at some of the things that we have been doing in the past two weeks. Some of the most popular piercings we did before lockdown were lobes, nostrils and nipples. But as you know, we are unable to pierce under the mask! All lip, tongue and nostril piercings have been a no-go, but that doesn’t mean we have been quiet!
It always makes us proud to do first piercings and since we have opened we have done loads! We were finally able to provide birthday present piercings to some kids that have been waiting patiently since the beginning of lockdown, all of which were strong and brave! But it wasn’t just the little ones that had their first piercings this week – we have had a variety of ages in, including one woman in her 60’s overcoming her fear of needles! We have been very impressed.
Something that many of our clients have been waiting for is a good downsize. Here you can see a dazzling opal from Neometal that has had the bar changed to fit this client’s Helix perfectly. It is really important to downsize your piercings to avoid lumps and bumps and the photo pictured demonstrates well fitting jewellery beautifully!
One thing that we won’t be showing you photos of is the sheer amount of nipples we have been doing! People have been taking ‘no under the mask piercings’ quite literally it seems and they appear to have been the most popular piercing of our second week! Post-lockdown has also seen a few intimate piercings, including a VCH and Christina piercing. These are an absolute honour to pierce and it always makes us swell with joy when we see the pride and ‘look what I did!!’ on people’s faces when the piercing is finished 🙂
For those of you waiting for the BVLA order we placed before lockdown to arrive, it is nearly ready! We are just waiting for the bars to arrive to complete the orders. We are so happy to put together custom orders for people so we can live vicariously through our clients – there are just not enough ears in the world to achieve all the things possible with the fantastic jewellery that is around. If you are interested in placing an order with us for BVLA, check out their website here.
Thank you for reading, it is always a pleasure to write! Until next time 🙂
