Thinking about updating your look with a new piercing? Whether it’s your nose, stomach, ears or somewhere a tad more personal, a piercing is a great way to express your individuality. But like tattoos, which often get a rep for being spur-of-the-moment decisions, getting a good piercing means doing research about the best placements, scoping out trends, and, most importantly, hunting down a piercer who can do the service safely. Luckily for you, we’ve tracked down the best piercing studios in Hong Kong that are not only clean and professional, but know how to make any piercing look great. From mainstream places like the MaBelle jewellery chain to edgier body-piercing specialists like Sara Pierced Me and Cubist Tattoo, here are the best places to get pierced. By Sarah Moran
