At Artmageddon, we only use disposable, single-use needles, also known as “blades”. We will never pierce you with a “gun”, they are unhygienic and cause unnecessary damage to the piercing site. We only ever use ASTM F136 Implant-Grade Internally-threaded or Threadless Titanium jewellery for initial piercings. Titanium is lightweight, highly resistant to corrosion and extremely unlikely to react with body fluids and tissues and are the least likely to cause an allergic reaction.
We also stock and pierce with high-end 14k or 18k gold jewellery by specialist manufacturers such as Anatometal, Junipurr etc – this body jewellery is specially designed to be used for piercings. Please email or message the studio to see if your desired piece is available. We are able to order specific pieces in ready for appointments if we have enough notice.
We will always offer the best advice we can regarding your piercing, how your anatomy will work with it, jewellery choices and aftercare.
Please email or message the shop with any questions.
Do I have to book an appointment?
We will always try to fit you in as soon as we possibly can, but we book up very quickly. Following the Covid-19 outbreak, all our services are now appointment only. You must have an appointment to come into the shop. It is always worth getting in touch to see if we can fit you in if you don’t see the date or time you require on our on-line booking system.
Once your appointment has been booked, you will receive information about attending your appointment, and links to a consent form, and a Covid-19 health form. This form is required by East Cheshire Council, and must be filled in before you attend your appointment.
We also display the NHS QR code in all areas, should you wish to scan it.
What do I need to know before my appointment?
You MUST be over 18 in order to get pierced without parental consent, it is required both by our local authority and our insurance. We reserve the right to refuse to pierce anyone, especially if we believe them to be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or coercion.
Please have something light to eat before your appointment.
Unless you are a minor bringing your parent or legal guardian to your appointment, you must attend your appointment alone.
We cannot carry out any procedure on anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
Please consult your GP before getting pierced if you are taking blood thinning/heart medication, or have had recent surgery.
Following the Covid-19 outbreak, we will be emailing or texting you our consent forms before your appointment, these MUST be filled in and returned at least 24 hours before your appointment. Failure to return your forms could result in your appointment being cancelled and your deposit being lost.
