The Piercing Urge is proud to be an LGBTQIA+ friendly studio. We welcome many people from all walks of life, no matter their gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation. We aim to provide comfortable, non-judgemental, and informed services for people no matter where they fall on the gender spectrum.
There are many piercing-related considerations and challenges that are unique to those who are trans, non-binary and intersex. Things such as gender reassignment surgery, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and even binding can have an effect on new, existing and future piercings. Our piercers are experienced and informed on these topics and can confidently help you throughout your piercing journey.
We will generally use anatomical and medical terms when referring to genitalia, however we understand that some people might prefer to use different terminology. If this is you, please feel free to inform your piercer so that we can use the terminology you would like us to.
You are welcome to discuss any questions or concerns with one of our professional piercers, we’d love to help you out!
