Brilliant! 28 Dec, 2011

I have had my lobes and my helix pierced here. I have also had a dragonfly tattoo on my right forearm. I am really impressed with all. I had no problems with them at all, and they all healed very well. The hygiene was absolutely amazing, and the staff were really kind.

This is the best studio I have ever been to. I have had numerous piercings here and won't go anywhere else. The staff are friendly and highly trained. Duncan the owner is amazing! The hygiene is above and beyond that of the local hospital. I would travel for miles to come here.

Don't go for surface piercings 16 Aug, 2010

I've had one piercing here- my lip a few months ago. I was really impressed. Duncan was really friendly although the woman on the desk wasn't brilliant- she asked me to come back in 10 minutes. Then when I did, she couldn't remember me and said it was too late because Duncan was about to tattoo someone. Luckily Duncan overheard and said he had 5 minutes spare to do the piercing. Despite this, he didn't rush me at all. He was really helpful and helped advice me on what size labret to get so that it would match my existing lip piercing. They are very hygienic, professional and friendly. I was so impressed that I decided to come back for my surface piercings. I travelled up there and told the guy behind the desk what I wanted. He said Duncan wasn't in so I'd have to return the next day. When I did, I told the same guy what I wanted again and he told me that they couldn't do it. They only do wrist and nape surface piercings. I wasn't very happy as I had very limited funds and have travelled all the way there specifically to get the piercing. I feel that he should have informed me that it wasn't possible when I went in the first time. I then had to spend even more money travelling to somewhere that would pierce me. The price list in the shop and on the website lists "Surface piercing". I feel this is misleading. So if you want any surface piercings, call ahead first to check. I am now looking at other piercing studios to use in the future, although I may return to Area 51 at some point. Ps: If you want a tattoo, make sure you take a good hard look at their online portfolios first. Unfortunately, their artistic talents leave a lot to be desired!
