Frequently Asked Questions - Piercing

---

  1. Q: What piercings do you offer?

A: A complete list of the piercings we offer is available at the bottom of this page.

 ---

  1. Q: How much do piercings cost?

A: Piercing prices vary by location, and all our prices include the cost of basic starter jewelry. For piercing prices, please contact us by calling us, messaging our Facebook, or stopping by the studio.

 ---

  1. Q: Do you offer piercings for minors?

A: We offer select piercings for minors who have both parental consent and the required documents. The minimum age required for piercings varies based on piercing location – for more information, you can call us, message our Facebook, or stop by the studio during business hours and our desk staff will assist you.

 

 Due to our high volume of clients on the weekends, we do not offer minor piercings for children younger than the age of 10 on Fridays and Saturdays.

 

In order to pierce a minor, we need the minor's original birth certificate with the state seal, and the present parent's valid, state-issued photo ID. The accompanying parent must be present for the paperwork, piercing, and aftercare instructions every time a minor comes in to get pierced, but the identification documents only need to be brought in once, as they are stored on file.

 

If the accompanying guardian is not listed on the birth certificate, or if their name has been changed, there may be additional documents required. We recommend giving us a call or stopping by if you have questions about whether the documents you have are acceptable.

 ---

  1. Q: If I am 18 or older, what identification do I need to bring to get pierced?

A: We require a valid, state-issued photo ID, and examples of this include a driver’s license, driver’s permit, state ID, handgun carry permit, or passport. We cannot accept military IDs, student IDs, social security cards, or birth certificates for clients aged 18 and older.

 ---

  1. Q: Do your piercers offer services other than piercings?

A: Yes! Our piercers assist clients in purchasing jewelry, changing out jewelry, ordering custom jewelry, and stretching existing piercings. We can also help if you are having difficulty healing your piercings and need some advice. These services are available any time we have a piercer in studio and appointments are available, but not required.

 ---

  1. Q: What is your starter jewelry made of?

A: We use internally threaded or threadless, implant-grade titanium for all our piercings, and that jewelry is included in the cost of the piercing service.

 ---

  1. Q: Do I have to start my piercing with basic jewelry?

A: No. If you’d prefer to start with something other than the standard starter jewelry, you would first need a consultation with one of our piercers. They will be able to discuss your alternate options and set that jewelry aside for it to be sterilized.

 ---

  1. Q: Do I need an appointment for a piercing?

A: No. We accept most piercings as walk-ins whenever we are open, which is 12pm to 10pm Monday through Thursday, and 10am to 10pm Friday and Saturday. Walk-ins are always first come, first serve, and we usually recommend getting here no later than 9:30pm.

 

Sometimes our walk-in availability changes due to the travel schedules of our staff, especially around the holidays. Because of this, we usually recommend calling to confirm our availability for piercings.

 

Due to our high volume of clients on the weekends, we do not offer minor piercings for children younger than the age of 10 on Fridays and Saturdays.

 ---

  1. Q: Can I make an appointment for a piercing?

A: Absolutely! We usually have appointments available for piercings Mondays and Wednesdays from 2pm to 8pm. Appointments must be scheduled 24 hours in advance and can be scheduled by giving us a call or stopping by the studio.

 

Because we do not require a deposit for piercing appointments, we ask that you arrive on time. If you arrive late, your piercing will be done on a first come, first serve basis.

 ---

  1. Q: Do you sell jewelry?

A: Yes. We carry a multitude of jewelry options for many different piercings, and what we don’t carry, we can usually order. If you are looking to purchase jewelry, you can walk-in or schedule an appointment to speak with either of our piercers.

 ---

  1. Q: What should I use to clean my piercing?

A: Aftercare will differ slightly depending on the location of the piercing.

For exterior skin, we recommend using a sterile saline wound wash two to three times a day for the full heal-time of your piercing. If using a fine-mist saline solution, you can spray the saline directly onto your healing piercing, then wipe away the excess fluid with a cotton pad. If using another form of saline, we recommend applying the saline to the cotton pad first, then gently wiping the piercing area.

 

For oral piercings, we recommend rinsing for 30 seconds with an alcohol-free mouthwash four to five times day for the full heal-time, as well as every time after you eat, drink, or smoke.

 

Do not touch, twist, turn, or rotate your piercing. Refrain from submerging your piercing in standing water, as doing so makes you highly susceptible to infection. If you have complications or concerns while healing a piercing, stop by the studio to speak with a piercer - we offer free consultations whenever the piercers are available and want to help you heal your piercing correctly.

 ---

  1. Q: Is there anything else I can use to clean my piercing?

A: We only recommend using an alcohol-free mouth was for oral piercings, and sterile saline wound wash (for use in combination with cotton pads) to clean exterior skin.

 

We do not recommend using cotton swabs in place of cotton pads, as doing so risks irritating the piercing, causing inflammation and discomfort.

 

We strongly recommend against using products such as witch hazel, peroxide, antibiotic ointment, or rubbing alcohol on your piercing. Doing so will inflame the piercing, and potentially elongate the healing process.

 ---

  1. Q: I’m having difficulty healing my piercing. What should I do?

A: Healing is different for everyone, as not everyone has the same lifestyle or anatomy. If you need assistance or have questions, come see us. Consultations are always free, and our piercers are trained professionals who want to assist you in healing your piercing correctly. For questions about consultations, as walk-ins or appointments, just give us a call or stop by.

 ---

  1. Q: What are your health practices?

A: Our piercers keep up to date on relevant piercing and health practices. It is important to us that your piercing is done in a safe, clean environment. As well as following all relevant health code practices, all initial jewelry and tools are sterilized in our autoclave, which is spore tested weekly. All initial jewelry and needles are sterilized and single-use.
