Hello! My name is Sara, and I have been piercing professionally in Hong Kong for 7 years. I grew up in Toronto Canada, and was classically mentored by a well respected piercer at a high traffic shop in the heart of downtown GTA. I was piercing in Toronto for 2 years before I moved to HK!
I strictly adhere to US/ North American hygiene standards and techniques practiced in the Western body modification industry. I follow APP (Association of Professional Piercers) standards, and use only APP reputable jewellery imported from America and UK for your peace of mind.
I perform all piercings by hand, with single-use surgical grade needles, and I will never use piercing guns!
I have been featured on local media (in Apple Daily and Ming’s magazine) to educate the public regarding the dangers of piercing guns.
I am the exclusive ASIA stockist of:
- Quali-Ti Jewellery 🇬🇧
- Buddha Jewelry Organics 🇺🇸
- Maya Jewelry 🇺🇸
- Diablo Organics 🇺🇸
- Tether Jewelry 🇺🇸
- Oracle Body Jewelry 🇺🇸
- and more to come!
I will never use jewellery sourced from Etsy or other unknown origins. All jewellery I use are certified, and the brands can provide papers to prove material make and origins. Some companies I carry even offer a lifetime guarantee on their jewellery, please ask for more info!
All jewellery and tools used for your piercings are autoclave sterilized for your safety, and all of my piercing needles and tools are single-use only and opened in front of each and every client. I only use ASTM F136 implant-grade Titanium jewellery to ensure biocompatibility as my basic option (no extra charge!), and I also stock a selection of solid 14k fine gold jewellery available as upgrade.
What are the benefits of using ASTM F136 implant-grade titanium over other grades of titanium?
Implant-grade titanium is the most appropriate material available for surgical implants and can help piercings heal more quickly compared with other metals such as steel and lower grades of titanium. The composition of the titanium alloy used in ASTM F136 is tightly bound so that it cannot break down under the skin and release metal particles inside the body.
Although other grades of titanium, such as grade 23, do adhere to the EU Nickel Directive they are not as biocompatible as ASTM F 136 titanium and are not designed for long-term wear under the skin. The use of ASTM F 136 titanium ensures the greatest possible chance that a piercing will heal properly.
What are the consequences of using cheaper materials, such as 316L surgical steel?
Surgical steel is unsafe for use in initial piercing due to its high nickel content, which can cause complications for those with a sensitivity to nickel, as many as ten per cent of the population. Surgical steel is not as tightly bound as titanium, so that particles of the jewellery, including nickel, can bleed into the skin, which can lead to harm the longer the jewellery is worn.
It can also cause hypertrophic scarring (bumps), itchiness and excessive white cell build up around the site of old piercings.
According to the EU Nickel Directive it is illegal to use any jewellery in initial piercings with a nickel release rate of 0.2 micrograms per cm2 per week or less. The jewellery I use is entirely free of nickel and made of materials approved for long-term use in the human body.
What are the benefits of using high quality gemstones over generic stones?
The shine of cheaper quality gems comes from a laying foil laid underneath a rhinestone to enhance its sparkle. They are easily scratched, become dull and colourless over time and, due to the use of glue to set them, often fall out completely.
I only carry brands that use high-quality stones like Swarovski crystals elements and semi-precious stones, carefully set using prong or bezel settings, to ensure the jewellery can be used continuously for many years!
