Body piercing at Al's Tattoos

Body art has become more and more popular over the years. Even the rich and famous can now be seen sporting a tattoo or a piercing.

Body piercing is exactly what it says on the tin – piercing part of your body with a needle so that an item of jewellery can be inserted through the skin.

Popular parts of the anatomy to have pierced are the nostrils, the ears and the navel (belly button).

Piercing various parts of the body has become more fashionable over the years.

At Al’s Tattoos we can offer all the advise you need on your choice of design and body jewellery and we will put your mind at rest on any concerns about health or hygiene.

Body jewellery ranges from titanium and surgical steel right through to gold and club jewellery and glow-in-the-dark.

Al’s Tattoos is a safe, clean, and professional environment for all body piercings or tattoo work.

This is how body piercing works:

  • First, the part of the body that is to be pierced (not including the tongue) is cleansed with germicidal soap (this kills bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms).
  • Then your skin is pierced with a very sharp and clean needle.
  • After this the item of jewellery – having already been sterilized – is attached to the puncture.
  • We then dispose of the needle in a special container, eradicating any risk of the needle or blood touching another person.
  • The pierced area is then thoroughly cleaned.
  • We check and adjust the jewellery.
  • We will also advise you on how to ensure your piercing heals properly and what to do if there is a problem.

If you any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help.
