Surface Piercing Procedure
Due to their intriguing nature and their difference to standard body piercing, surface piercings have become increasingly popular. Some of the most popular surface piercing types include:
  • Sternum Piercing – Also known as a cleavage piercing, this piercing features a barbell pierced above the sternum.
  • Neck Piercing – Also referred to as a vampire bites piercing, this surface piercing is placed horizontally on the nape of the neck.
  • Wrist Piercing – This piercing consists of a barbell, pierced on the inside or outer side of the wrist.
  • Hip Piercing – Usually done in pairs, this piercing sits in the pelvic area through the skin, resting just above the hip bone.
  • Hand Piercing – This piercing usually refers to a piercing placed between the finger and thumb but it can be placed through the webbing between the fingers.

Looking for somewhere to get your own surface piercing? Use our store locator to find your local Blue Banana Studio. You don’t need to book an appointment; you can simply show up and be pierced on the day.

Please ensure that you have checked the surface piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the surface piercing age restriction is 18 (ID may be required) or 16 with parental consent from a parent or guardian who is present.

Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill out. A member of Blue Banana staff will walk you through the steps and can help you pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a quick consultation and briefing before discussing the surface piercing location.

The piercer typically uses a sterilised gauge needle and passes it through the skin, inserting the jewellery in the process. The piercing spot is cleaned thoroughly and marked with a pen first so you can agree that you are happy with the location.
