Piercers get asked a lot of questions (I love answering questions!). Here are a few common inquiries I get.
I'm a minor, or parent of a minor, Do you pierce children?
Without appointment, nobody under 16 is permitted in the shop. We will not pierce anyone under 7 years old.
Our requirements for children are as follows
-Child must be well behaved, able to pay attention and follow directions, the piercing must be something the child themselves wants without
-Appointment Required, generally a Monday or Tuesday is best 1-8pm
-Must be accompanied by parent or legal guardian
-State or Federal ID for Guardian
-Some sort of formal photo ID for child (School, yearbook, state, federal, etc)
-No other minors should be with you at the time of the appointment.
-No large groups of friends, typically best to have 1 on 1 with parent, client, and myself.
-We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at our discretion.
-We have a 30 dollar set up fee if the child refuses to be pierced after items are sterilized and set up.
What if I'm allergic to certain materials?
Make sure you check out the Jewelry Quality page! On that page it will explain why we only use and sell the best materials from the most reputable companies. Using implant grade materials virtually eliminates most risks caused by allergies.
Will you pierce under the age of 16 with consent?
While there is no law preventing me from doing this, . The youngest age I decide to pierce will be up to my own discretion and that decision is heavily based on individual maturity and anatomical factors. I will always require the client to be able to verbally consent and understand all of my instructions, therefore no infants or very young children.
Will getting a piercing hurt?
In short, yes, However piercing is nothing you cant handle! Most piercings are over before you know it and you're on your way with a shiny new piece of jewelry. By using the internally threaded and high polish jewelry (as well as the best needles and supplies available) it will help your piercing experience be all the more painless. Don't get inside your own head! Stay confident and you'll be impressed with how easy the entire experience really is when you're done!
Is piercing safe?
Yes! There is a lot of work that goes into making every single piercing I do the safest it could possibly be. If at any time I feel there is a risk to anybody's safety I simply will not go through with the procedure. Good aseptic technique, proper sterilization, and proper disinfection keep you AND me safe!
