Bondi Road is home to Kaleidoscope, Sydney’s best piercing specialist. When I first stepped into this brightly-coloured trendy shop, I got a red sparkly navel piercing. Business has picked up since gentle-natured piercer, Brady Hardin, started there. “Most people come in because they want to face their fear of needles.” These days piercing is more acceptable and the clientele ranges from 18 to 70 years, with repeat clients indulging in piercings that are often hidden in discreet places. If you feel a little rebellious and desire Brady’s expertise, he’ll calm any skin-rippling, finger-gripping nerves and remind you to “breathe”. (Jenn Sedman) 255 Bondi Rd, Bondi 9365 0167
