Susan Birds is renowned for high quality, professional body and ear piercing. We have been piercing in this salon for over 3o years and have welcomed generations of families through our doors. Highly qualified and Health and Safety registered, our standards of hygiene, customer service and aftercare are all excellent. We can offer you friendly advice, talk you through the procedure and show your our studio before you make the decision.
We stock a wide range of body jewellery, including retainers and maternity bars and offer a free measuring and fitting service when purchasing items.
At Susan Birds we go to great lengths to ensure your piercing is carried out hygienically and in a sterile environment but don’t forget – the aftercare is just as important. We will talk you through the aftercare and what to expect whilst your piercing is healing and provide you with written advise and aftercare solution. We also encourage our clients to come back to the salon for regular check-ups if they wish to.
Our piercing menu is so long that we have only listed some of our most popular piercings here – if you don’t see what you want, please ask. In some cases where swelling is likely to occur we will pierce with a longer bar and change it down, free of charge to a shorter bar once the piercing has healed.

Aftercare advice and solution included.
The Daith piercing is located in the inner cartilage section of the ear which runs through a pressure point. Many clients who have had the piercing say they have seen an improvement in the intensity of migraines, headaches and tension around the neck and shoulders. The principle is that the piercing mimics acupuncture by hitting a pressure point, which relieves the pressure in the clients head. By having it done on the same side as most migraines occur, it’s thought to help reduce the incidence of migraines in the area. As with acupuncture, the process is particularly popular with clients who don’t want to take daily pain medication. Just £25.
