Heather’s double lower-helix piercings pierced w/1.2mm titanium labret bars at the newly opened 2nd Skin. Always a continued privilege to be trusted by the many people I meet piercing and Heather’s addition on the right ear compliments/completes her ear rim/helix wrap perfectly. Both of my additions are third down on each ear and look good with or without matching heads 🙂

The lovely Chloe’s triple helix piercings all pierced w/1.2mm x 8mm titanium labret bars. The top two are around 2-3 months into healing whilst the third/lowest has just been added at the time of the pictures. Always a pleasure to meet so many wonderful people and we were both real happy with how this classy triple cluster turned out.

Hannah’s Various Helix Piercings

Always a pleasure to pierce the many regulars @ Shiva, here’s Hannah’s various ear work. A healed top-ear/helix w/0.8mm x 8mm seamless (continuous) stainless steel ring and a couple of fresh double helix piercings w/1.2mm x 8mm titanium bars. Also a couple of awesome contrasting shots of Hannah’s ‘ghost’ plug which I think is currently 14mm.

Sophia's Double Helix Piercings

Sophia’s Double Helix Piercings

Here’s Sophia’s well-pierced ear with two additions by myself. Sophia came in with her existing lobes, conch, scaffold and the top of the helix trio already pierced on her left ear. She requested two lower cartilage piercings to create a curving trio, a triple helix/ear cartilage piercings. The two lower ones, were pierced by myself w/1.2mm x 8mm (lower) & 10mm (middle) titanium jewellery to allow for swelling. Happy to add to this collection.

Triple Cartilage

Serena's Triple Ear Cartilage Piercings

Serena’s Triple Ear Cartilage Piercings

Serena came to see me with a logistically defying gun pierced scaffold… I cannot stress anymore how important it is to pierce needle only, an industrial with a gun is just horrific. You can see on the top of the ear where the former scaffold was, how blown out the ear has become and the angle was a) so off, and b) the lower ear rim just wasn’t possible to pierce in that way. That (shorter) bar (I replaced the scaffold with) is in line with the lower two of the top two I added/rather than in line with the top! Yet the scar is in line with the top bar… The ear had got so angry that a whole half of the scaffold bar had submerged and looked as though it was going through the actual ear. Up on my advice and me removing the bar, Serena treated her ear to a point it was way healthier and pierceable in a professional and safe manner. I first pierced the lower part of the ear cartilage and several weeks later added the two top additions. Pierced w/1.2mm x 8mm titanium only bars. Needle only piercings. Safe to say Serena has been back since and is healing well to my knowledge.
