Scarification is the art of creating a scar on the skin in the shape of a symbol, picture or word as a permanent body modification. Scarification can be made by either cutting or branding the skin and when done well it can have stunning results. The Piercing Urge is one of only a small number of studios in Australia that offers professional, clean and safe scarification as a service.
Our scarification artist Pete Sheringham has been with The Piercing Urge since 1992. Not only is Pete an expert at scarification but he is also one of Australia’s longest servicing body piercers.
We've helped many people obtain their ideal piece of body art in a professional, safe and clean environment.
