It’s always fun to shake things up when it comes to how you present your personality visually to the world.
While some do this by investing in new outfits, getting a new hairstyle, or experimenting with make-up, others might look for something a little more permanent. Enter, piercings.
If you’re obsessed with ear piercings, or any piercings for that matter, we don’t blame you. For something so small, they can make a big impact and are an easy way to reveal your personal style.
Long gone are the days of people only having two standard ear piercings. These days, people can have upwards of five in one ear.
If you’re contemplating more— like we always are— or maybe you’re just finally ready to brave your first, then look no further because your favourite body mod salon has arrived in Geelong with the new store, Off Ya Tree.
A brand and store who pride themselves on being one of the forerunners in the alternative lifestyle and body modification industry, you can now simply head to Ryrie Street in Geelong to begin rocking some cool on-trend earrings or nose hoops through their offshoot in-house studio Punktured Body Piercing.
Located in store, you’ll find a hospital-grade piercing room where you can indulge in pretty much all types of piercings from a highly trained and experienced piercer – in a totally profesh and hygienic matter, i.e. no piercing guns which are prone to creating infection.
And when we say all types of piercings, we mean it.
With standard facial piercings at an easy $15, you can pierce your eyebrow, bridge, nose, septum, tongue, lip and cheeks, as well as tongue frennulum, spider bite and beauty spot. If you’re wanting to stick to the ears, they can do anything from your tragus, rook, lobe, auricle, to your pinna and helix (we suggest you look these up before you head in), while body piercings include navel and nipple piercings (both men and women).
However, if you’re feeling game and ready to up the ante, they can also offer more advanced piercings such as Industrial, Dermal and Surface Piercings ($20) to even a range of genital piercings ($50) which could include the Labia, Clithood, Clitoral, scrotal, among others. You’ll definitely want to look those ones up ahead of walking in.
With an endless list of body modification options, you’re sure to find a piercing that look playful, sexy and cool – dependent on your own personal preferences of course. Just chat to your Punktured professional piercer if you’re after something in particular and they’ll do their very best to accommodate.
So that’s all good and well, but I hear you asking ‘but how do we get our piercings?!’ Off Ya Tree make it simple by having a trained piercer in store, all you need to do is call ahead to make sure the piercer is in store on the day and then just walk on in.
Consent wise, you need to be 16 and over for standard piercings while any genital piercings require you to be 18 and over. If you’re under the age of 16, you will need parental consent ahead of your piercing.
And that’s not all! Because Off Ya Tree are absolute legends, they occasionally run a $5 piercing sale, which can be either specific to certain stores or nationwide. Keep your eye on their socials for these announcements.
What’s even better is that Off Ya Tree really is a one-stop-shop for those living an edgy lifestyle. Alongside access to a piercing studio, you’ll find a collection of rad tees, hoodies, jackets, dresses, swimwear as well as bags, jewellery, homewares, hair colour and beauty products in store. Piercings are cool yes, but you can further accentuate your look with all these goodies!
If you’re also partial to a smoke, their site will redirect you to a host of cute, novelty and
practical smoking paraphernalia, which will surely keep you set for life (or maybe just the
With access to three of the 30+ stores, Off Ya Tree ensures that those in Forté land are at the forefront of living on the fringe.
