WE HAVE VACATED
LITTLE MALOP STREET
AFTER 25 YEARS.
WHERE IS THE NEW ADDRESS GOING TO BE ?
INFO YOU NEED
CLOSED FOR NOW BACK SOON !
Here is some info you need to be aware of. In some instances we have set some of our own age requirements due to past experience of having to deal with outside influences that may not be too pleased about the piercing your choose. It is really important to understand that schools & many work places have strict rules when it comes to body piercing. Sporting commitments are also to be considered. Our advice is that if you can not wear your piercing freely do not do it. Trust us on that.
15 years and under a parent MUST be present to sign the health release document & we encourage them to stay for the procedure. Photo I.D of the parent will be recorded however should the minor have a student card we may also record that. Where a parent is providing I.D for a child we will ask for a Medicare card. Without suitable I.D services will be refused.
16 years & over will require photo I.D - we do advise that having your parents blessing helps even if you are of age to make this decision yourself. It is a big deal so talk to your parents about your decision.
Some piercings we will only do on people 18 years & over. This is firm and we will not accept any form of parental consent for these. The sites included in this are, tongue, septum, industrial, surface, nipple & xxx piercing.
Worth noting we do not pierce children's ears under the age of 12 years. We do reserve the right to refuse. It is a really special moment & we may refuse if we feel the child is too anxious & it may impact the result. Our only method by single use needle. This method is swift and the little people who have experienced this are fast converts to this comfortable method of piercing. We do however have a great network and can refer you to the right people for alternative methods and little people younger than this.
All our body piercing is done with single use needles. We have different needles for different sites. The needle method is not only highly professional it requires a high level of skill & concentration for swift accurate piercing. For this reason we do not allow spectators into our piercing rooms. We are only concerned with caring for our client to ensure they have a great experience. We do use a mild numbing cream with all our work & our jewelry is from Wildcat Body Jewelry the pioneers in our industry.
All our piercing is done using high quality titanium jewelry from the Wildcat range.

After Care & healing info
Each client is offered essential aftercare & asked to return for a review or check up at the 2 week mark. We will monitor you during your healing phase with scheduled reviews. These can be done via appointment in the studio or we can do them via telephone or zoom. Please note we are always available to assist with any of the work we do for you regardless of where you live or are in the world. We are only ever as far away as the phone or a device. Aftercare instructions will be emailed to you as you check out from your appointment.
Different sites heal at different speeds. Some sites will take up to 12 months or longer to establish. This does not mean they will cause constant discomfort during that time. We strongly recommend and encourage you to stay in the high quality titanium we put you in until this has been achieved. Once your piercing has done this you can freely change jewelry.
We ask you do not add additional products to your routine or do more or less than we recommend. Each persons ability to heal is different so do not judge your journey by that of another although there may definitely be similarities. Regardless of what system you choose should any irritation occur stop use immediately and contact us for an alternative. Irritations can often be mistaken for an infection ( and vice versa) so always seek professional advise before you start using other products on your piercing site.
OUR SIMPLE SYSTEM
This is just $5 for our clients. It involves the use of a beautiful fine high grade Himalayan sea salt to make a mild solution for your piercing. We have sourced our choice of salt from a reputable supplier. Each person is different and even the purest cleanest of salt must be used according to directions.
PROTAT SOOTHING HYGIENIC
This product is available for $10:00 spray has been a longtime favorite of our studio for being an easy convenient product for all external sites. This unique combination of Aloe Vera extract, Centipeda cunninghamii in a solution of glycerol & methocel is ideal as a topical piercing aftercare formulation designed to protect the piercing without causing the skin tissue to become dehydrated which is so important.
It is perfect for travel and a fabulous maintenance product for piercing sites or for sanitizing all your body jewelry including ear rings.
Interesting to know that Centipeda cunninghamii is commonly known as old man weed, being the literal translation of its Koori name Gukwonderuk.
