Each piercing is performed with single use sterile needles and any equipment used is immediately disposed of.

The jewellery we offer is of the highest industry standard. We only use Internally Threaded or Threadless Titanium, both of which have a mirror polish finish, assuring comfort and safety during insertion and wear. Our Gold jewellery is solid 14k & 18k with no platings, fillers or coatings.

We are the only studio in Camden Town to offer lobe piercings done with a needle for children from 8 & up (by appointment only) using high quality jewellery. This is the safest way for children (and adults, of course!) to be pierced. (A parent or legal guardian MUST be present with photo ID for both adult and child for the piercings procedure)

Louise profile picture

Growing up as a creative and artsy kid, Louise found herself never sure of what she wanted to do for a career. The idea of doing the same job for years and years seemed boring, especially after working office jobs in between completing her Degrees.After moving to London to study Fashion Design (which she enjoyed but again, wasn't what she really wanted) Louse eventually found herself in a position to learn to be a piercer.

When she began in 2010, piercing was still pretty old school. Not a lot of choices for jewellery, but she felt like she'd found her place in life. There was just something so exciting about it all, every day was different.

And her she is many years later, not at all bored at doing the same job. Louise's enthusiasm and passion for piercing is seen in her work and they way she speaks to clients individually to plan their piercings.Clients are drawn to her excitement and creativity, her use of colour and texture along with placement.As someone with a passion for jewellery and especially gold, there isn't a better career.

When Louise isn't piercing she can be found outdoors with her family, feeding squirrels or lifting heavy things and always in Nike.



Tom profile picture

Tom has been piercing since the beginning of 2016 and is also a veteran of the service industry, he has forged a strong reputation based on his aim to consistently achieve the best overall client experience possible, alongside his skill set and attentive bedside manner. Tom feels it is important for people to be as informed as possible with regard to body piercings so will try and convey as much useful information to help ensure clients are fully equipped for the commitment of healing a piercing.

While Tom does not favour particular areas of the body to pierce he does enjoy the challenge that is presented with each individual's anatomy and the opportunity to create unique styles and placements. His favourite ear piercing to perform is a conch on the basis that it was his first ear piercing but also the versatility the placement offers in terms of jewellery options.

Outside of piercing Tom enjoys cycling, music, cooking, reading and socialising.
