    Art thou mad?! I can think of at least 3 piercing studios in Canterbury. I don't know what any of them are like though because I've never had anything pierced! :rolleyes:

    I know there are a few in the city centre, but I'm worried about going to them without knowing what they're like.

    I know of 3 different piercing studios in canters. I got my eyebrow pierced a few months ago in one of those.

    I've visited the Third eye 777 parlour and it looks a bit dodgy although I've heard good stuff about it, still, I chose not to do it there. The other one is called the belly bar and it basically has two shops in the city. One of them is in high street and it's the older one while the other one is quite new. I did my piercing in the new one . It is very clean, the people are very helpful and if you get any problems you can just pass by and they will clean and replace your studs for free. My piercing didn't hurt at all, there wasn't any blood at any time and it didn't get infected. I'm planning on getting my lip pierced soon, definitelly visiting them again.

    Cheers!

    Go to Belly Bar near Nando's at the bottom of the high street! It's very clean and safe and I and some of my friends have been there and had no problems at all! (Sorry if this is a bit late now!) x

    I've heard good things about the piercing shop inside Third Eye, but haven't been there myself. However if their tattoo studio above is any relation then they will be awesome My friend had her lip done there. Also I know Third Eye looks a bit 'dodgy' but I think thats just because its in an old building so its a bit out of date. At least with the tattoo parlour everything was brilliant.

    So, I guess this means that the tattoo artists there are awesome... Are there any other places in Canterbury where I could get one done? I am soooo paranoid about getting a mediocre tattoo on me so I want to be perfectly sure... Any online material about this one/any tattoo studio there? thanks ^^

    When I got mine done it was around £60 an hour and a small deposit for the draw up. Yeah drop me a line if you want to know anything else.

    Me, my Boyfriend and my housemate all had ours done there by Grant. I've heard John isn't as good. Mine was quite a simple design but he did it well with good attention paid even though it was just a small job. My boyfriend had an eagle tattoo done there and it was very well done. He provided the outline as it was from the cover of a book but Grant filled in the detail and its such a beautiful tattoo, the shading is excellent. My boyfriend will be going back there for another tattoo in September as he loved it so much. Its also much cheaper than other places which is weird. They charged him £50 and its quite a large tattoo, I think other places would charge £70-£100. My housemate also got his done which was text mixed with coloured flowers and some other stuff (bit of a mish mash tattoo he designed himself) and its very well done.
