Emma ensures of annual training in emergency first aid, mental health first aid, blood bourne pathogens and attendance at the UKAPP conference.
Can I Bring a Friend?
Unless the client is aged under 18, chaperones are not usually encouraged. This way the client is given 100% focus throughout the appointment.
Will it Hurt?
The sensation of being pierced is subjective - it depends on the client's state of mind, fatigue, health, and their level of comfort/ease with the process. All piercings are felt - but it's never as bad as most people anticipate!
Body piercing is a quick process and Emma will strive to ensure her clients are put at ease. This is an important part of the experience and can make the whole journey far more pleasant. It is advisable to have eaten within the previous four hours and to avoid caffeine beforehand.
Health & Hygiene
The piercing procedure is performed using aseptic techniques. All piercing implements used are single-use and disposed of after use. Isha Studio works as a disposable studio for your reassurance and to prevent any possible chance of cross-contamination.
This is extremely important to follow to ensure a happy healing piercing and prevent irritation, allergy or worse, infection. We only recommend NeilMed Sterile Saline Spray on skin piercings and this is available online or for a discounted cost for all Piercees. Read our advice here.
