    First to Review

    I loved this place!
    I wanted to get my cartilage/helix pierced before I went back to the states and i'm so glad i came to this place! i initially was going to get my ear pierced at claire's, but i read reviews on yahoo saying that using the gun was a lot more dangerous and insanitary. SO, i looked up places in london and found this tattoo/piercing shop.

    When i first went when, i was introduced to Misa, who is the piercer, and she made sure that I was of age and made sure that i was taken care of. She gave me a paper with after-care instructions and it was also like a warranty-like paper...basically if something went wrong with the healing process, she would be able to help out if you brought the paper with you. Then i paid my £20 (which includes both the jewelry and the needle piercing) and signed the waiver/agreement paper.

    Finally she got everything ready in the piercing room. She made me super comfortable by carrying a conversation and showing me that all the tools she was using was brand new and still in their original sterile packaging. I picked where i wanted my piercing and she made sure that there werent any large veins in the spot. she REALLY knew what she was doing. afterwards, she explained to me more about the aftercare process with my piercing.

    The piercing itself did hurt a lot more than the lobe and it obviously took longer than using the gun, but im glad i chose to get it done with the needle.

    i'm so happy with my piercing hehehe

From the business

Specialties

We are a Tattoo and Piercing Studio based in Notting Hill Gate, London. We have an established client base and are open 7 days a week. We are one of the last remaining independent businesses still fully functioning on the Portobello Road.

We cater for walk-ins (tattoo) but generally its best to pop in and have a chat with one of our artists and then book yourself in with a deposit. However all piercings are walk-in so come down whenever you want.
