We will be moving into the new premises on Monday 6th May and it will likely take us a few days to get everything tidied away before we re-open.

New shipment in today of cute micro-dermal tops... Stop by and see the full range on offer, this photo does not include the 3 other styles of flowers, star and star with gem, or the ever popular heart.
We are New Zealand's only piercing studio to offer this oval base micro-dermal according to the owner of Industrial Strength body jewelry. This new design benefits placement of micro-dermals that are in mobile areas, like lips, cheeks, around the eyes and navels. The even width of the base provides greater security in these highly mobile areas. We expect these oval ends to be back in stock by the end of the month. Its all about progress and its many benefits.

With over 11 years of surface piercing experience, we've seen the numerous problems that can occur. These problems usually originate with poor quality jewellery materials, like stainless steel and various plastics. The other common problem was the shape of the jewellery, round jewellery had proven to be problematic.
Our shop exclusively uses flat titanium surface barbells in various lengths for various body parts, for the longevity and stability of your piercing. These barbells aren't hand bent they are machined to precision 90 degree rises. We also carry over 20 different styles of internally threaded ends... thats not even counting basic titanium balls or disks!
