Piercing, Aesthetics, and You: The Complete Guide to Finding the Ideal Piercing Studio

Piercings are an excellent way to express your individuality and creativity, but finding the right studio to get your piercing done can be a daunting task. The piercing experience can be a make or break moment, and it is essential to choose a studio that offers high-quality services in a clean and sterile environment. We understand the importance of finding the right studio, and we are dedicated to providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Piercing Studio

When it comes to finding the right piercing studio, there are several key factors to consider, including:

Sterilisation and Sanitation

One of the most critical aspects of a piercing studio is the level of sterilisation and sanitation they maintain. Make sure that the studio follows strict hygiene protocols, such as using single-use needles, autoclaving equipment, and wearing gloves and masks during procedures. This will help to reduce the risk of infection and ensure that you have a safe piercing experience.

Experience and Skill of the Piercer

The experience and skill of the piercer is another crucial factor to consider. Look for a piercer who has received proper training and certification, and has a portfolio of successful piercing procedures. It's also a good idea to ask for referrals or read reviews from past clients to ensure that the piercer has the experience and skill necessary to perform the procedure.

Possibly check the APP & UKAPP and locate your nearest member, if there isn't a member local maybe they can suggest someone they might visit themselves.


All UKAPP & APP Members Should be working to the highest standards available in the UK.

Though beware some people maybe claiming to work to UKAPP and APP membership standard but are not members you can check membership the above links.

Jewellery Selection

A good piercing studio should offer a wide range of jewellery options, made from high-quality materials such as verified ASTM-F136/129 implant grade titanium, Niobium or solid 14/18k gold. The jewellery should also be appropriately sized and suitable for your individual anatomy to ensure that it is comfortable to wear and will not cause any irritation or infections.

Pricing and Services

Finally, consider the pricing and services offered by the piercing studio. Do they offer the correct aftercare products and instructions, and do they have a policy in case of complications or infections? It is essential to choose a studio that offers a full range of services to ensure that you have a complete and satisfactory piercing experience.

The Piercing Experience: What to Expect

Once you have selected a reputable piercing studio, you can expect the following steps during your piercing experience:


Your piercer should begin with a consultation, during which they will assess your anatomy and discuss your piercing preferences and any medical concerns. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and ensure that you are comfortable with the procedure.

Marking and Preparing the Area

Your piercer will then clean and mark the area to be pierced, ensuring that the placement is accurate and aesthetically pleasing. This step is critical to ensure that the piercing is performed in the right location and will look the way you want it to and will heal.

Piercing Procedure

The piercing procedure itself is relatively quick and relatively painless, with the use of a sterile needle and appropriate piercing jewellery. Your piercer will guide you through the process and ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed.


After the procedure, your piercer will provide you with aftercare instructions and products, and likely suggest you schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the healing process and downsizing if needed It is essential to follow these instructions carefully to ensure that your piercing heals properly and does not develop any complications.

If you do run into any complications you should contact your piercer asap, and they should be able to advise some next steps.


Finding the right piercing studio is an important decision that will affect the outcome and healing of your piercing. By considering the factors outlined in this guide, you can ensure that you have a safe and successful piercing experience.
