    Holier Than Thou is on Oldham Street in the City Centre. By far the best piercing studio in Manchester, in my opinion. It's reasonably priced too. I've been there a few times and I'll never go anywhere else now.

    Here's the unfinished website: http://www.holier-than-thou.co.uk/

    Thanks i'll go in on sunday and see about getting it done. What would be the best thing to get for it, i've been looking at blackline and bioplast. What would you recommend?

    Blackline and bioplast are both suitable materials, as well as PTFE and titanium...but I would recommend either of the latter two.

    I always find that my piercings behave better in titanium than Blackline. Bioplast and PTFE are similar in their flexibility but PTFE has non-stick properties so lymph doesn't form all the time. All the materials are biocompatible and autoclavable...but PTFE is just better for healing really. The scaffold can be such a bugger to heal as you're probably aware!

    Good luck with it though, the guys at Holier Than Thou will probably recommend things for you anyway when you go, and be prepared to pay more than 25 for PTFE/Bioplast/Blackline...cause the prices on the website are based on piercings done with titanium as standard.
