The Piercing Urge was established in 1991 to meet the small but growing need for safe installation on body jewellery in Melbourne. What started off as a small piercing studio above an adult bookstore has now evolved into one of the most highly trusted, respected and reputable body art studios in Melbourne and Australia.
Nestled in the Chapel Street precinct, only 6 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, The Piercing Urge provides a modern, tranquil and safe environment for those seeking skill and expertise when adorning their body in piercings, tattoos and more.
We take great care in providing a safe and hygienic environment, and our studio complies with the Public Health Act and the Skin Penetration Guidelines issued by the Health Department in Victoria.
Step into our studio and be welcomed by an inviting and comfortable reception and waiting area, two spacious piercing cubicles and a separate room where equipment and jewellery is cleaned, disinfected and sterilised to the highest standard. To top it off, we also have two comfortable tattoo rooms, decorated with fantastic art.
We take great pride in being the best and over the years we have invested a lot of time, money and effort in making sure our studio goes above and beyond the required standards. Not only do we have top quality facilities and equipment, but our staff members are also expertly trained to ensure consistent excellence in all services we provide.
We strive to provide you with not only the friendliest service but also a wealth of experience, knowledge and useful information about body art. Our staff are happy to guide you through the entire process, whether it be your first ever piercing or tattoo, or your 30th – we are here for you.
Our service doesn’t stop when you leave the studio either. Our staff are always happy to help you out with any questions you may have regarding your piercing or tattoo, and you are most welcome to call, email or drop by to see us, should you need any kind of assistance.
