At Lighthouse we pierce with grade 23 titanium which complies with the ‘Nickel Directive 2001’ and should be accepted in your body quite easily. We only pierce with barbells, labrets and studs; rings tend to move around too much thus hindering the healing process.
A consultation, advice and written aftercare instructions is standard for all piercings. No need to book, just turn up.
Please note: you must be at least 16 years of age to get a piercing (18+ for nipples, napes and anchors). We accept a passport, provisional/driving licence or government sponsored ID schemes as proof of age. If you are 14 or 15 years old, we can pierce you but you must be accompanied by your parent and you must both show ID (some piercings are not permitted on under 16s).

Meet Emily (Our Manager & Piercer)
"I have been manager here and head piercer for 7 years but piercing professionally and working in studios for 13 years. I am proud to call one of the oldest established studios in my favourite town Brighton my home. I started my career as a receptionist in a tattoo studio and fell in love with reading old copies of ‘Skin deep’ magazine, chatting to clients and I was excited but the people I saw in the studios and conventions; they looked so cool! I wanted to be one when I grew up! The environment, music and family vibe of tattoo studios made me never want to leave, so I never did! I pride myself in providing a chilled out, quick and friendly process. I’m bit of a magpie for anything gold, blingy and extravagant!
Before I go, please remember it is so important to stay extraordinarily, fabulously pierced and accessorised!"
