PIERCINGS WE DO NOT OFFER.
We care about our clients, and there are a few piercings that we as a company just don't feel comfortable performing due to their excessive risk. They are listed below with a brief breakdown of why we don't offer these piercings.
- Horizontal tongue piercings (also referred to as a 'snake eyes' or 'scoop' piercing): This piercing is located at the front of the tongue, and pins together to two muscles of the tongue. With the placement of the jewelry, when the mouth is closed and the tongue is at rest, the tip sits directly against the back of your front two teeth. When hard jewelry is placed there, it presses directly into the gums, and when they start to erode, it's a very costly process to get them fixed. Also, while talking (especially when making 'L', 'TH', or 'S' sounds), the jewelry will smack into the two front teeth and create chips in the teeth.
- Horizontal lip piercings: This piercing sits in the surface of the lip, with a curved barbell. This is another piercing that has a tendency to pin together muscles that need to be flexible for the sake of speaking. This means that as they heal, they tend to snag on teeth, food, and during other activities. Because the tissue on the lips is soft and very easy to tear, this piercing is very susceptible to tearing if it snags on anything, which will leave heavy scarring in the surface of the lip.
- Surface anchors on extremities (hands/fingers/arms/etc): Being single point piercings, surface anchors are already very likely to reject within 6 months or less of being pierced. Once you add in the amount of movement and day-to-day snagging that happens with hands and arms, this just makes surface anchors in these placements have an incredibly low rate of survival. Every time your hand goes into a pocket or a bag or even a sink full of dishes (and dirty water!) you risk snagging your jewelry and pulling it out, and then leaving what amounts to an open would in a high risk area. There's a reason it's recommended to remove jewelry before using any kind of workshop tools, and this just goes a step further than that.
