5 Star Hygiene Rated Piercing!
Vellum Tattoo and Piercing has been rated 5 stars for hygiene and safety by Rushcliffe Borough Council, a rating that less than 1 in 50 tattoo studios achieve in Nottinghamshire. We believe that it is important that all of our clients recieve the highest standard of body modification and as such we only use pre-sterelised jewellery, single use needles, single use clamps and a completely disposable setup.
There is no legal minimum age to get a piercing so at Vellum Pierciing we ask for parental/carer consent for all people under 16 years old. We also reserve the right to not do certain types of piercings after a consultation if we feel that the piercing is not in the best interest of the person being pierced. For example a child of 14 who wants a facial peircing during term time - as there is an increased risk of injury and infection at a school and this should be avoided during the healing process. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this.
Childrens piercings : We are happy to do lobe piercings for children starting from 5 years old but please be aware that all piercings are done with a needle (and not a piercing gun) and therefore take a little more time to do. Needle piercing is generally considered less painfull than gun peircing and is less damaging to the surrounding tissue resulting in faster healing and less chance of infection. However, piercings are open to infection until fully healed, a process that usually takes between 4 and 12 weeks. As such we go through the aftercare process carefully with both the child and their carers and, as above, we reserve the right to withdraw this service after a consultation if we feel that it is not appropriate.
