    Default Advice on having a HCH or Triangle

    I've been thinking of adding either a HCH or Triangle piercing to my VCH, as a reward for progressing with my dissertation. :-) I realise this depends upon my anatomy and since I'm up in Manchester for a few days next week, thought I'll pop into Holier than thou and possibly see Hell for her opinion, perhaps even have it done!

    I was wondering what experiences people have had with this type of piercing (getting it done and whether it lives up to its supposive benefits) and would they recommend this studio?

    I can't comment on the piercings as I'm not suited to either.

    I can recommend the studio though, been going there for 8 years, never once had a problem! Couple of wonky piercings in the early days that were immediately sorted out with no questions asked. I have been pierced/modified there probably about 30-40 times though.
    Piercings: 6 lobes, 2 12mm stretched lobes, 4 helices, 3 tragus, daith, 2 nostril, 2.4mm VCH, 1 upper conch, 2.4mm daith, philtrum

    coinslot ear cartilage removal
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x4, semi permanent eyebrows, lip dermal filler

    Thanks Hazel. Partner goes up there and stays on business often, and I saw the good reviews on the studio. I'm not rushing in to it this time, but taking my time investigating studios. Next week he's down in London, so if I don't have it done there or decide to wait, I may pop into Cold Steel instead.

    I'm going to email them and ask a few questions, and then I'll pop in to be assessed. If I'm not suitable for either or just the HCH (but I really like the look of a triangle!), I may have that or get my left nipple repierced.

    A friend of mine is seeing Aiden at Adorn in Shrewsbury next Friday and since I have a 20 gift voucher to use, I'll probably go with her and get my rook done.

    If you want to go to Cold Steel make sure to ring in advance and book in with Julie, otherwise you may have a wait on your hands, be very rushed (it can get crazy busy) or she may not be in. Only stating this if you weren't aware, you may be a regular for all I know! Adorn looks lovely, your friend has good timing, I think they've just started to be able to pierce again after the flood!

    Thanks again. I've messaged both Adorn and Holier than thou. I'm booked in at Adorn for my rook next Friday after my friend and a jewellery change for my tragus. I went to their old studio last year for repiercing my second and third lobes, and saw all their pretty jewellery. It's ashamed they had that flood which delayed theme restart piercing. Aiden is one of the best piercers I've been to.

    I'm popping in to see Hell next Thursday when I'm up at Manchester to be assessed for my Triangle. I've heard she's quite good, too and partner will be there to hold my hand. I've heard Triangles are quite specialised and need to be done by a very confident piercer. So I'll see whether I have it done there or elsewhere. I've read some accounts that Quentin at Kalina is very good, but it's a 5 hour drive to get there (I'm in the Midlands). Although sometimes partner goes to Brighton on business sometimes.

    No, I've never been to Cold Steel before. I noticed that Julie at Cold Steel is recommended by Elayne Angel on her website, so that's why I thought I'll go there, too.

    Julie is recommended for VCH's by Elayne yes, check in advance if she's still doing genital piercings as well as they're trying to get it all stopped in Camden, I know they no longer do male genital piercings already. I can confirm that Hell is a highly skilled body modification artist (her and Marcus have pierced and modified me so many times I've lost count), as is the lovely Quentin ^_^

    Let us know how it goes!

    Thanks Hazel. Today is 'd-day' for the assessment, so I'll let you know if I have it. If I'm not suitable or I chicken out, I'll have my left nipple redone, whilst I'm there!

    I've warned my friend tomorrow if she sees me walking like John Wayne, she knows I've had it done. But I forgot to being a skirt or dress with me, so I only have jeans on!

    I rang Cold Steel today and Julie does do triangle piercings. I'm in London next week, so I'm going to pop in and get her opinion, too.

    Because this piercing is invasive and special, I'm making sure I find the right piercer for it.
