I got my nose pierced here and i definitely regret it. When I got it pierced they used the piece of nose jewellery... which has a curve and hooks into your nose, then when I went to get it changed at a different piercing shop to a ring about seven months later thinking that it was fully healed, when the piercer removed the jewellery that was provided for me she saw that the jewellery was way too small for my nose causing an indentation to form. Then when she put the hoop in, found that because of the jewellery that they used for me (which is apparently not the one you're meant to use for an initial piercing) the hoop didn't sit right at all on the nose. So she had to replace it with a longer straight barbell which allowed for potential swelling and to help reduce the appearance of the indent. Regret coming to this place as i now can't guarantee that I can even wear a ring and would have to take it out completely and wait to repierce it again. So quite disappointed with the outcome of all of this and wouldn't necessarily come back for another piercing.read more

Little NoseMy wife and I walked in and got seen to straight away, my wife had her nose pierced, Claudia who did the... piercing was super friendly, explained what she was doing, ensured my wife was happy (my wife was a bit nervous lol) everything was clean and sanitised. My wife will definitely come back here for more piercings. Thank you, one happy sailor!read more

Best piercing experience I have ever had! Originally went somewhere else but they didn't offer what I wanted and they... were more expensive. Called happy Sailor and they said I could come straight down! Our piercer was amazing, she made us feel relaxed and at ease and was so professional from start to finish. Great atmosphere in the studio from everyone there too, Highly recommend!read more
