Frequently Asked Questions

What thickness is my piercing?

Navel, nipple and tongue are normally pierced with 1.6mm thickness jewellery. Most other piercings are usually done with 1.6mm thickness jewellery although this may vary. Eyebrows, tragus and madonna piercings are often done with 1.2mm thickness jewellery however may have 1.6mm also.

How long do I have to wait before I can change my piercing?

Everyone is different so healing times vary dramatically. Listed below are the average amounts of time for some different piercings but if you are at all unsure or worried about how your piercing is healing then please contact your piercing studio.

I am having an operation and have been asked to remove my piercing.

We offer a full range of PTFE (a type of plastic suitable for piercings) jewellery which is suitable for using in piercings for operations.

I am pregnant. Will I have to remove my navel piercing?

No. We sell a range of longer flexible PTFE bars suitable for use during pregnancy.

I am starting a new job and have been asked to remove all my piercings. What am I to do?

We sell a full range of clear retainers for all different piercings such as eyebrow, tongue, labret etc. We also sell flesh coloured flexi-plugs for disguising stretched up lobe piercings.

I am too frightened to stretch my lobes up. Do you offer any alternatives?

Yes. See our Fake Body Jewellery section.

I've lost the ball from my bar. Do I have to buy a whole new bar?

No. We sell a full range of attachments and replacement balls on their own. It is important that you know the thickness of your bar to ensure you order the correct size.

How long do I have to wait before stretching up my lobe up to the next size?

As a guideline we usually recommend waiting at least 2 weeks before stretching your piercing to the next size up although the length of time varies dramatically from person to person and may take much longer.

My piercing is still quite sore and aggravated. What jewellery do you recommend?

The best thing to use would be plain-polished Titanium or PTFE (a flexible plastic). Both of these are biologically inert therefore your piercing will heal substantially faster.

Can real Gold be used in body piercings?

We don't recommend gold as it is not a pure metal and may contain many traces of other metals such as nickel and can easily discolour in piercings. We sell a substitute of gold-coloured titanium that is pure and visually effective. See our Aztec Gold collection.
