Do I have the correct anatomy?

Piercings require a specific anatomy, so your body must have the correct shape for the piercing to be placed correctly. A professional piercer always starts with a check to see if the desired piercing is possible for you and then discusses the options with you. Sometimes a specific piercing cannot be placed or only one can be placed when you might have liked two or three right next to each other.

Whether you have the correct anatomy for the piercing(s) you want can only be assessed by the piercer in person. Photographs often give a distorted image and therefore most piercers may require you to come to the studio for a consultation. If you have specific wishes but are not sure whether you have the correct anatomy, you can make a consultation with most piercers. The piercer will then take the time to discuss all the options with you.
