We offer a walk-in service for body piercing, 7 days a week. Just make sure you have had something to eat and if you are lucky enough to look under 21, bring some photographic identification.
Please note we stop piercing 30 minutes before we close to clean down the modification rooms so they are medically safe ready for the next day.
If you are in a rush and would like to book an appointment for a set time, give us a call on 0161 839 3737 during opening hours and we will be happy to confirm a time for you.

Body piercing involves puncturing human skin tissue to create an opening through which jewellery is worn. Historical, cultural and modern reasons behind body piercing can include religious or spiritual beliefs, aesthetic value, self-expression, rebellion and many more.

At Holier Than Thou, we use only disposable, single-use blades or cannulated needles depending upon the procedure you are having. We only ever use medical-grade mirror-polished beautiful Titanium or Niobium jewellery for initial piercings, as this metal is lightweight, highly resistant to corrosion and extremely unlikely to react with body fluids and tissues. Titanium and Niobium is not magnetic (also doesn’t set off airport security scanners) and are the least likely metals to cause an allergic reaction.

We will give you the very best, honest advice we can muster in regards to the piercing you would like, your unique anatomy, and the most appropriate jewellery for the job. We want you to love your body and your new piercing, and be relaxed throughout the entire process of piercing selection, procedure, and aftercare for years to come.
