Time Out Melbourne

There are plenty of places to get a puncture in Melbourne...

Piercing HQ

This Abbotsford piercing parlour might be Melbourne's newest, but their experienced staff bring over 30 years combined knowledge to their work. You're guaranteed top-notch service and unfailing professionalism here.

What they pierce: Body, face, genital.

What else they do: Fully negotiated, professional kink piercing, an after hours service that involves elements of BDSM; Autoclaving (sex toy sterilisation)

The Piercing Urge

A true labour of love, the Piercing Urge was established in 1991 to meet the needs of Melbourne’s piercing and body modification devotees. Here, body modification is an art and, for some customers, a lifestyle.

What they pierce: Face, body, dermal anchors, male and female genital, flesh staple.
What else they do: Lobe scalpelling, lobe stretching, scarification.

Off Ya Tree

Sure, it’s a chain. But what it may lack in indie appeal it makes up for in professionalism and duty of care. If you’re after an Amanda Bynes-style micro-dermal insert without the accompanying cray-cray, their hospital-grade piercing rooms should put you at ease.

What they pierce: Face, body, dermal anchors, nipple, female genital
What else they do: Tattooing, smoking paraphernalia, clothing, jewellery
