Punktured Snail hits the Snailway
One of Brighton’s most established, independent business has signed up as a Snailspace sponsor. Based in the North Laine, Punktured is the city’s ‘go to’ piercing studio for people looking for body adornment. Now in it’s 18th year, Punktured is celebrating with its very own giant gastropod on the Snailway this autumn.

Piercing may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine a giant decorated snail, however owner Julie Greenfield, was one of the first people to sign up to the event and is passionate about being involved. Talking about why she signed up she said:
“I just love the idea of a snail that represents what we do and surprises people when they bump into it. I saw the impact of the Snowdogs in 2016; the way it brought people together and captured their imaginations, everyone was talking about it. I knew immediately that if it happened again we wanted to be part of it.
Also, as a business we have always supported local charities. Martlets is a much-loved charity in the city and I understand how important it is to support their amazing work. We are really pleased to be able to support them whilst also being part of such a fun, creative and high profile event.“
But will the ‘Punktured’ snail be pierced? Julie continues:
“In my mind I see a very pink snail, and, as for piercing, well I think everyone will just have to wait and see. Whatever happens it is going to be eye catching!”
