Piercings

Any recommendations for piercing studios in Birmingham?  It's for a navel piercing.

I've asked around my friends.  A few of them recommend Dolly Rockers in the Oasis.  One's had a tattoo nearby, but no piercings, and the other had her nose done.  The one person I know who had her navel done there found that it broke open a little while afterwards, and I know a few other people are wary of it, for other reasons.

My sister had hers done at that little place in the indoor market, but they no longer do body piercing.:(

Any suggestions?

Well the best place I've had piercings was at Modern Body Art, Corporation Street - very professional and friendly :)

Definitely *don't* go to the Oasis Market. Nothing but had things heard from others - the one piercing I made the mistake of having there (my lip) was supposed to be central on my face but was actually almost half an inch to one side. I argued with them and eventually got a refund. They're cheap for a reason, their staff are unknowledgeable about basic things - avoid.

Modern Body Art are very professional indeed, and not too badly priced, but you'll have to book in advance usually.

Metalmorphosis in Selfridges are impressively clean and professional, the staff are very helpful, and you don't usually need an appointment, but they're the most expensive by far.

Blue Banana is the trendy chain that also do walk ins, are cheaper, and definitely of a higher standard of knowledge/professionalism/cleanliness than the Oasis Market. I've had several piercings there and they've all been fine, only thing is they do tend to get quite busy.

(For reference - I have about 10 piercings and have been pierced at all of the above places mentioned *except* Metalmorphosis)

Oh, well, hi there.:) How've you been Alistair?

I'm getting it done at MBA on Wednesday, thanks.

Blue Banana (in the Palisades near the escalators) is good and you can usually just walk in. I've had a lip and an eyebrow piercing there & had no problems with either.

That said, MBA is probably the best tattoo shop in Brum, so it's likely their piercings are good, too.
