I’m a piercer but will never do these four piercings – they’re just not worth the effort and cause way too many problems

A PIERCING studio has denied the four it denies – including one in the hand.

Metal Morphosis is used to embellish people’s ears and faces with jewels and studs.

But the studio revealed on Tik Tok that there are four types of piercings it will never offer.

The first is a tongue piercing that sits under your tongue on the piece of skin that connects your tongue to the floor of your mouth.

It’s such an outlandish choice that not everyone has enough skin under their tongue to get it done.

Metal Morphosis said, “It goes through such a tiny piece of skin that it can easily tear or migrate.

“And it tends to build up a lot of plaque and tartar on the rod.”

The second is a snug piercing that sits in the center of your ear and needs to pierce through thick cartilage to be where it should be.

Most piercers consider it one of the most painful places to get jewels.

Metal Morphosis, based in Hackney, London, said: “It’s super hard to cure.

“It penetrates so many layers of cartilage and therefore takes so long to fully heal.

“People come back with so many problems.

“It’s just not worth the effort when you can use conch and helix to simulate a tight piercing! Which basically looks the same!”

The third is the snake eye piercing – where two studs sit on the front of your tongue to look like a snake will pierce when you stick your tongue out.

The piercing shop explained why they don’t like this one: “Snake eyes damage your enamel, can scar and distort your tongue.”

The fourth piercing that Metal Morphosis doesn’t offer is finger dermals.

Skin piercings are piercings that are anchored to the skin and have no exit point.

One in your finger would easily get caught, which can result in a scar if accidentally ripped out.

People praised the piercing studio for its “good standards” and willingness to educate people about which piercings are worth going under the needle for.
