Failing that, Cold Steel in Camden have a good reputation - they're on the main drag, you can't miss them.

I'm assuming you want a proper piercing shop, not a branch of Claire's Accessories btw! (Piercing guns - shudder)

:-)


I don't really know, I've never had anything pierced, but your shudder has made me think again :o

Well, ultimately it's up to you, and zillions of people go to Claire's with no ill efects I guess. But I'd avoid getting any piercings using a gun for the following reasons:

Piercing guns can't be sterilised - a needle will be sterile
Needles are much sharper than piercing guns, therefore make a better hole
Anyone can pick up and use a piercing gun with no training - a reputable piercer will have had an apprenticeship

There was another good reason, but I can't remember it now (I'm sure my bad memory is a result of T y'know - and I must go and post that in that thread about effects of hormones before I forget again!)

D'ya know how to find a reputable place? It's something I've considered on/off for a few years but I think the time might be right :D

Word of mouth is usually the best bet as far as recommendations are concerned - but failing that, Google is a good start, along with checking that they have an up-to-date certificate from the local council displayed (is it Environmental Health? Hmmm, not sure off-hand).

Whereabouts in the country are you? Someone might know of a good place to recommend.

I'm between Halifax, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield and Huddersfield :lol:

I don't know anyone so word of mouth isn't really plausible.
