Professional
 Body Piercing
All piercings are performed at Dorchester Aesthetics Centre, under licence from West Dorset District Council.  Emma is first aid trained, experienced in emergency nursing and is fully insured.  A selection of her work can be seen in the body piercing gallery. Some of these images date back to 1997.  Read more about Emma's skills and experience here.  Read her client reviews in Facebook and Google.

Location
Dorchester Aesthetics Centre is located in the town centre and a few minutes walk from Durngate Street or Wollaston Field car parks.  The centre is warm and friendly and offers a private room for all consultations and body piercings.  

Booking A Piercing
Emma is available by appointment only - Monday & Wednesday evenings and all day Saturday.  A 50% deposit is required to secure an appointment.  Book online here

Procedure
Client medical history will be obtained before the booking is confirmed and all procedures will be carried out using single-use cannula or blade needles and vacuum sterilised pouched instruments.  The use of medical implant grade Titanium ASTM F-136 jewellery is required for all new piercings and recognised as the best quality material for jewellery worn all over the body in new and established piercings.  Aftercare advice will be provided verbally and in writing and post-piercing consultations are encouraged.  For further information, contact us.

Jewellery
All body piercing used is high quality and safe implant titanium - grade ASTM F-136.  All barbells or labrets are internally threaded.  The ball threads into the post and any subsequent removal of the jewellery will minimise possible trauma to the piercing channel.  All jewellery used can be viewed on our standard jewellery range.  

Prices
Body piercing prices start at those stated opposite.  However, if clients would like implant jewellery from our Industrial Strength, Le Roi or Couture Cluster Gems range, there is a standard piercing price in addition to the cost of the jewellery.  All lines from this range can be viewed on our high end Jewellery range.  Please contact us for more information.
