Welcome to Holier Than Thou! We are based in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter and are proud to offer a range of Body Modification services. We are situated on Oldham Street off Piccadilly Gardens and strive to offer the North West’s very best Piercing, Tattoo and Modification service. We are open 7 days a week and are at your disposal to help you achieve your body perfection!

We offer custom tattoo, walk-in tattoos, body piercing, body modification and laser tattoo reduction services. We operate a very strict hygiene regime that is similar to that of an operating theatre. We have separate sterilization rooms that house our ultrasonic cleaners, cold soak tanks and autoclave units. Our international award-winning artists have anatomical training and impeccable aseptic techniques. We use industrial HEPA filters and Medivent air filters in each of our treatment rooms to ensure the air is as free of airborne pathogens as possible. All our surfaces are easy to wipe down with biocide, and the flooring and grout (where present) is hospital grade. Our staff members are more than happy to show you around the studio and explain all procedures prior to undertaking any tattoo, piercing or modification.

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

We are Manchester’s premier modification, piercing and tattoo studio, if you’re based in the North West or further afield, we are easy to reach via the motorway network or trains from the North West (Manchester, Liverpool), the North East (Sheffield, Leeds), the Midlands (Birmingham) or the South (London). We have a fantastic aftercare, body jewellery and clothing range, including plugs and tunnels up to 100mm if required!

When it comes to deciding on whether or not to laser reduce that old tattoo you’ve always regretted, or deciding on which piercing / tattoo / implant / modification you may like next, take a look at our portfolios available in the studio and in the online gallery to help you choose. Everyone at our studio is here to help you through every step of the journey, please take a look around our site – any queries, please ask!
