A body piercing
studio in Camden, London. I am not sure of the exact address
but it is above one of the shoe shops at the top of some very industrial-looking
It is usually staffed by
two resident piercers, and a visiting piercer or an apprentice.
Inside, it's meticulously clean (they have numerous health
certificates from Camden council) and surprisingly doesn't have
the usual rock music blaring out into the street. My first
impressions were - cool, but expensive. However, as someone who's
had things pierced there (tongue and two conch's) I can
recommend paying extra for the aftercare you get.
The staff are really
knowledgeable, and the equipment they use is scrupulously cleaned
(3 stages, soak, autoclave, and sealed). The jewellery can be a
bit pricey, as can their cleaning kits. There is a waiting area
with one room leading off it, the 'pink' room, there are three
rooms upstairs, green and blue and the sterilization room (not
for neutering you fool). I would say it's worth a visit to the waiting
room just to see their metal sofa - it looks
soft, but then chrome just isn't soft, is it?
Oh, and they follow the Piercee's
Bill of Rights .
I was writing this so people
could get a vague impression of the place, but it reads like an
advert - a stale advert. I guess the best thing is to go and see
it for yourself, but hopefully this will help you weed out the good
from the bad.
