If you’ve made your mind up and are ready to get your new piercing then it is easy to book an appointment with Betsy Bites, you can message her by:
All piercing enquiries should go through Betsy Bites and not Luna Ink itself as she arranges her own schedule. Bethan is in the studio on Wednesdays and Saturdays but if this is not convenient for you then she will do her best to accommodate you.
Payment is required by at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Sadly, some people don’t turn up and other people then miss out on a slot, so to ensure your appointment please be prepared to pay in advance. This is especially important if you require a day outside of her usual schedule.
Before attending your appointment at Luna Ink please ensure that you haven’t consumed alcohol and give the area that is being pierced a good clean too! Make sure you’ve had something to eat prior to arriving and if needed bring along something sugary for your appointment.
You should arrive on time for your appointment and bring along a form of ID. If you are under 18 then make sure to have a parent or guardian with you. While Covid-19 measures are in place, unless you need a guardian, you should attend the appointment alone and follow all safety measures (Check out the new rules here). Allow a minimum of 20 minutes for your appointment, Bethan will be able to give you a time frame depending on what and how many piercings you are having but make sure you have at least 20 minutes spare for your appointment.
At Luna Ink, Betsy Bites has a private piercing room that you will be taken into which will already be clean and ready for you! She will first check that the piercing you want will be suitable (some ear piercings need enough flesh or certain shape ear lobes to work), she will advise you any adjustments you might need and choose the right jewellery for you. Bethan doesn’t use piercing guns, she only uses cannula needles as they are safer and more hygienic, you will be pierced with titanium jewellery to prevent allergic reaction but you should let her know of any allergies that might affect your piercing.
At Luna Ink, there is no rush! Betsy Bites wants to make sure you are happy and as comfortable as possible so if you’re nervous then just let her know, she will do everything she can to put you at ease. She will also advise you on aftercare of your piercing (which you can also find here). Be aware that piercings may bleed and you should expect swelling, after your appointment please don’t be tempted to remove your piercing as this can affect the healing process.
Betsy Bites would love to see you in the studio! So, what are you waiting for? Book an appointment and we’ll see you there!
