It is with great pleasure that I can announce our fifth piercing studio is now open in our Covent Garden, Monica Vinader boutique.

This is our second new studio in 2022, following opening in Selfridges last month.

As MV’s Head Piercer, 2021 saw me open and manage our first studio in our flagship Duke of York store; followed by Canary Wharf and Marylebone.

Last year also saw me assist in the set up and opening of our MV piercing studios in both our NYC boutique and in CA. USA.

Our sixth London studio will be opening next month in our South Molton St. boutique.

It has been a proud moment professionally, to join such a successful brand in Monica Vinader; managing various studios and meeting so many wonderful people.

We have a wider team of piercers now with us, and it has been a pleasure to work with so many great people from the store teams; all the way up through the company.

It has also of course been so fun to meet and pierce so many people since our opening the piercing service, last year!

To the thousands of people that have been pierced with us in such a short time at MV, thank you for your support and continued trust. You make doing what we do a pleasure, as we elevate your ear stack game!

To come and join the ear party at one of our various piercing studios, please make an appointment online.

Just dropping an update as I am now done guesting at Tattoo 13.

The last three months I’ve had a great time piercing at Tattoo 13 as a Guest Piercer, covering for one of the piercers during COVID.

It was so much fun returning to piercing in a busy studio in the heart of the WestEnd. Especially during such an unprecedented and unpredictable year!!

Thank you to all of you who came out and kept me busy!

Also a massive thank you to Tattoo 13 for having me. It was a pleasure and I’m sure I’ll see you again somewhen in the future.

All Love. XIII

As ever, thank you for your continued trust in doing what I do. It’s been real fun returning to piercing, something I will always love doing.

Laura’s Double Helix Piercings

Laura dropped by Tattoo 13 to add to her piercing collection for which I pierced a double helix either side of an existing helix piercing. The first and third smaller 3mm clear gemstones, were pierced by myself and the contrast looks awesome; alongside the cluster-shell piece Laura was rocking above the lobe!
