Piercing

Body Piercing

I pierce all kind of piercings, from the simple nostril to the microdermal implant. See my Photos gallery.

You will find on the left menu the prices, that include piercing and jewelry (except for the stretching that does not include the jewelry).

For all your questions about piercing, you can read the Questions & Answers chapter .

A few things about my work: 

  • I was trained for hygiene and sanitation by medical CRIPS Ile-De-France, during an internship at Tenon Hospital (Paris), in accordance with Decree on tattooing and piercing n ° 2008 - 149 of 19 February 2008. My training certificate can be seen here
  • I only use titanium or bioplast jewelry. These are the only one legal in France as first jewelry, because they are the only ones that are nickel free. Plus, you can keep them even when you have to get x rays medical exams, because they are not magnetic.
  • I only use sterilized needles sterilized with EO gaz (ethylene oxide), which is currently the most reliable method of sterilization and sustainable over time (more durable than sterilization by autoclave class B)

  • All the forceps and tools are sterilized in a surgical solution first, then handly brushed, then cleaned in an ultrasound tub. Finally, they are sterilized with a class B Sterilizer, the only one that is allowed by the french law.
  • I use sterile gloves to pierce.

About customers:

  • Refusing or accepting less than 16 years old cutomers is my own decision. Anyway, a parent will sign a special paper and will provide a copy of his ID card and the one of his kid. I often do not pierce people under 16 except for the earlobes.
  • I do pierce intimate parts, which does not mean I am into BDSM or other sexual hobbies that are only each people's private business. My studio is a neutral and professional place. No weird behaviour will be tolerated.
  • I am against the earlobe or nostril piercing with a gun. You can't sterilize an ear gun, this machine is not an healthy way of piercing. 
    I do pierce children above the age of 6, only if their parents told them about the pain and effects, and if their parents do care about the piercings healing then. Ask your doctor for a prescription or lidocain cream, to apply without massage 2 hours before piercing, covered with a plastic film. I will remove it on my own before piercing. 
    If I feel that the kid did not want the piercing, I will not pierce. If it's the parents' wish, I will not pierce. If the kid cries after the first piercing and does not want the second one, I will not pierce the second earlobe. I will never force a kid against his decision, even if the parents ask me to. 

About dermals and surface piercings:
  • 95% of the surface piercings reject. I refuse to place surface piercings except for the nape.  Dermals are better, the risk of rejection is less important because they cause less frictions.
  • Punch and taper technique is what I do for classic surface piercings.
  • Piercing rejection can happen after a few months to several years after it was pierced. 
  • Surface piercings or implants removal can leave a little scar, less big for dermals. 
  • Most of the time, doctors would only ask you to reove the dome for a surgical intervention.
  • The inital price does not include the removal. You will hav to pay for it, 15 euros, because it needs tools.
  • I make a 10 euros discount per implant when you want to get four or more implants at the same time on the same area of your body. For example, for 4 implants on the chest, you will pay 160 euros instead of 200. For five implants, 200 instead of 250, etc...

Differences between piercings (from left to right on the picture):

  • A dermal implant (microdermal)  is a small reverse T shaped implant, approximately 5 mm long with a dome you can screw on it. The inner implant is pierced with holes so that the skin can heal on the and "grab" the flesh. You can put it everywhere on the body when there is enough flesh, but I do not recommend you to put it in a place that will have lots of frictions like wrists or hands. The inner jewel is inserted with a biopsy punch, only the dome you can screw is out of the skin, so that you can feel nothing when you touch it without the dome screwed inside. I advise you not to change the first dome too fast, in order not to start over healing because you hut yourself forcing the inner screw.  When well placed and well inserted, the rejection risk is less important than the risks for average U shaped surface piercings.  

  • A Skin Diver is a smaller implant with no holes on the base and a dome you can't change. The dome is approximately 5 mm wide. Only the dome is visible, but the rejection risk is important because the skin can not "grab" the jewel when healing. It' also inserted with a biopsy punch but I do not insert skin divers anymore because there has been too much rejection. 

  • An average U shaped surface piercing is a staple shaped bar with too outter holes. Both have a removable dome. The U bar is under the skin. You can put them everywhere on the body but most of them reject soon or later and ofter leave ugly scars when the customer waits too much before removing it. Dermals are still the best solution for surface jewelry. I insert average U shaped bars on nape only. I use the punch and taper technique that has proved to be the best way to avoid fast rejections (two holes pierced with a biopsy punch, then a taper is put under the skin to lift it and then the jewelry is inserted).

This is how a dermal looks alike when there is no dome inside (click on the images to see them better):


Once the dome is unscrewed, the inner bar must not be too much out of the skin.
