Very cool. Are the rules any different in the UK than they are here? Only "medical professionals" are SUPPOSED to do 'extreme' mods ie implants, tongue splitting, suspension, dermals and surface piercings. I know of quite a few shops who still do them but it's sort of under the radar.
I have, exactly why I won't go there. Either they don't practice correct health measures or when I ask to see their past work I get something along the lines of "Well I don't have a book to show you but I did one on my friend once..."
There's a couple places in Canada I may make a trip to though. :)
