The lovely Janene’s ear helix/rim-wrap pierced over the course of around six or seven months @ Shiva. The highest piercing had been there for a long time when Janene decided to start working down to the earlobe. I pierced four, one at a time; between the top one and the two on the lobe. Originally pierced w/1.2mm 8-10mm titanium labret bars; here they have been shortened to a mix of 6-8mm with smaller 2.5mm aqua gemstone heads. Janene has been healing pretty fast but had caught her ear on a bike helmet just before coming in for the refitted shorter bars; where we also stretched her second lobe piercing to accomodate matching 1.2mm jewellery.

Molly’s labret piercing w/1.6mm x 10mm titanium labret bar and later changed down to an 8mm as anywhere around the lip will swell for a week or two initially. It’s always nice to meet new people and give advice to the many that ask me about getting into the professional body piercing/tattooing world. There are several routes but I always tell young people to give themselves options above anything. Generally speaking, the old school way is to get an apprenticeship which involves a lot of watching and learning over a prolonged period of time; for which do your research and find a professional and respectable studio which is willing to take you on. There are also shorter courses you can pay to go on which are great if you have a job to come out to, else it can be difficult to apply the practice which naturally comes with time; if you don’t. Unfortunately Shiva doesn’t take on apprentices as our studios are relatively small and fully staffed; however when new shop staff join there is sometimes the option to learn depending on the circumstances.
