About Piercing HQ

Our Story

Piercing HQ opened it’s doors in 2012, from a vision of wishes and wants formed over a span of 20+ years of professional piercing experience.

We crafted a state of the art piercing studio where no detail has been overlooked; we stock the finest body jewellery available in the world, use the highest quality piercing techniques, and best practice sterilization. A full range of piercing services and a wide variety of body modifications are on the menu here at Piercing HQ, all performed to the highest standard.

Your safe, comfortable, and (most of all) enjoyable experience is paramount to us, and your complete satisfaction is what we strive for. Our studio fosters an environment of mutual respect above all, free from judgement of lifestyle or modification choices. We believe high-quality, safe piercings and body modifications should be available to everyone.
