    Default Recommended UK Piercers

    This list is a guide, it is not solid advice and I always recommend that you do thorough research on any piercer you intend on going to. I am only including UK piercers as this is a predominantly UK forum and the USA has a good list of piercers compiled by the APP.

    If you would like a piercer to be added please provide the following information:

    Shop Name
    Piercers Name
    Town/City & Area of the UK
    Why you recommend them


    Once you have provided this information I will either post the details or I will do some of my own research and possibly ask for links to portfolios or websites to investigate further. I will reserve the right not to add who I don't think is suitable to be recommended and edit if necessary. Also, if I deem that a piercer or shop is only good/not good at certain things I will make a note of it.

    I can't recommend them enough and go there for all my "more special" piercings, I've seen 3 piercers (cant remember the other 2 names) there but John has done 2 of my special piercings. They are more expensive than some but they take the time no matter what the piercing to get the placement right, to make you you are relaxed and happy. I had a blast last time I was there, I always go in confident and come out happy.

    Sorry they were on the old list but due to several people posting badly done piercings by him on here I had to remove him.

    The above is just one of the recent bad piercings to come out of there, I just can't recommend him sorry. That and someone who was a regular there got some cold reactions and very poor information from him as well. People can of course make their own minds up but I won't recommend someone who has dropped so much in quality.

    Shop Name - Bodycraft
    Piercers Name - I feel really bad, I'm not too sure. There's Charmaine (who is very lovely), and at least two male piercers (quite possibly more male and female piercers) both of whom have also pierced me before but I don't know their names.
    Town/City & Area of the UK - Nottingham
    Why you recommend them - Really friendly staff, was worried they'd be a bit intimidating ( ), but they're all great, really helpful. They're very thorough with aftercare instructions, very approachable (would be happy to go back to them with any problems, but haven't had any) and they were really great with my 15 year old sister-in-law too. I'm not an expert when it comes to piercings and such, but all my piercings from them have been fine, ditto friends with piercings from there, all carried out in a small, clinic-looking room that appears very clean, with single-use equipment. Website: http://www.bodycrafttattoo.com/ but for more up-to-date pictures (especially re: piercings) I would recommend maybe searching them on Instagram- they update very frequently, and I've yet to see anything that's made me go "UH-oh!" (they also do tattoos, but this is a recommendation for piercings )

    (I hope it's okay to post this, I wasn't sure whether to post or private message, if I'm wrong, apologies >.< )

    Hiya, it's fine to post here, I went to their website but can't see much information plus they seem to have 3 shops? Can you link me their instagram so I can have a better look as one of the photos shows a surface piercing done with a barbell which is very wrong but it doesn't say if that's the piercing they have done.

    Shop Name: Skins and Needles
    Piercers Name: Kim Hutchinson
    Town/City & Area of the UK: Middlesbrough
    Why you recommend them: Kim is the best! She's done 8 out of my 10 piercings, and every single one was conducted efficiently and proficiently. She's someone who really knows her stuff, and is always happy to help with any queries or issues. From the offset she makes you feel very comfortable, and maintains a very friendly atmosphere, whilst remaining completely professional. Her portfolio is brilliant, and also vast, and some of the play piercing she's done are the most gorgeous things I have ever seen. She has her own area in the back of the studio with full privacy curtain which is closed for genital and nipple piercings, but you can ask for her to close it whenever. She offers all the piercings you'd expect, microdermals, skin divers, surface piercings (she isn't the type to pierce anything, I've heard her explaining to people their placement wouldn't work with a surface piercing, however skin divers would work and would they like to take that route), genital piercings, play piercings, and scarification (not sure if that's really relevant to this thread, but now you know anyway haha) I honestly wouldn't trust anyone else to pierce me at this point. Her facebook page is updated at least once daily, and I would link to it, but due to my post count I can't. Her business name is Skin Seamstress Body Piercing & Modification. Just an all round top notch piercer.
    Piercings: 1x6mm lobe, 1x3.2mm lobe, industrial, daith, double nostrils, septum, both nipples, vertical helix, scapha, navel
    Tattoos: Right shoulderblade, behind right ear/right hand side of neck, right thigh, right caf
