Got my Eyebrow, Ears & Snakebites.
I First went to go get my Eyebrow done & I Had my ears done at the same time & the ear where done within seconds & Jodie talked me through eveything and made sure i knew what was going on and how it would feel, She also specally cheaked veins and the correct mesurments for my eyebrow bar. I took all her tips on how to look after it & then went back for snakebites and we waited for a while as my mum had a little chat with some of the artists there. Great place! (:

Great staff
Had a conch and labret doen there, staff are very friendly and inviting, the ladies who do the piercing make you feel very relaxed and talk through every aspect of the piercing with you. Great value for money as well, almost half teh price of what i would have paid back in London, but still a good, clean and comfortable experinece. Definaltly recomended.

Ive only gone here once and thats only because i thought that it was over priced and they didnt do a very good job of my tattoos. I was only having 2 smallish tattoos done on my ankles and, well the guy didnt get my design right, and then when it came to the tattooing i had to go some where else to get them redone totally cos the ink didnt last i had to have them redone after about a month and a half of having them. Plus i also found that the staff were quite rude when i went in there.

fab!
Have had many piercings done at this studio and have been really pleased each time. the staff are always really friendly and talk you through everything you need to know (and answer all the questions you might think sound stupid!). from the last comment about the septum piercing etc, ive been told the same thing by many piercers which is why i've never had it done. also i've had my nose and ears pierced with 1.2mm jewellery when ive requested it at colchester body arts so i'm not sure why this person would want to badmouth them when they were only trying to give advice? anyway, i completely recommend this studio!

not very happy
I went to the body art centre in january to get my septum pierced but i was told no because suposedly there are small bones in your septum, which i know is a lie. i then asked about a 1.2mm nostril piercing and i was told that i cannot have it done at that size because she wouldnt do piercings on the nose/ ears above 1mm because they heal better at 1mm or some crap like that.she was very rude to me and talked down to me because i questioned her reasons. if you want a piercing dont at a certain size then find a piercer that will do it for you.

Excellent!
I had my first cartilage piercing here yesterday (OK, not a very daring piercing, but it's a start!) and it was fantastic. Very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, professional. All information needed was told with no problem, all queries answered. It was quick and almost painless, with good instructions for after care. I recommend this place!
