Walk-ins will not be accepted. Our schedule is operating solely on appointments, even just for jewelry purchases, and the door will remain locked between appointments. Masks must be worn properly at all times by both the piercer and the client, the only exception being nose piercings.
We are now starting to accept appointments for nostril and septum piercing services again! These appointments will be limited throughout the week to minimize unmasked hours in the studio. For any piercings or jewelry changes on nostrils or septums, you must bring proof of your vaccination status including booster, with no exceptions. Failure to provide proof of vaccination will result in a canceled appointment and cancellation fee. We are still not offering oral piercings yet.
No visitors will be permitted, please come to your appointment alone, unless you're a minor. Minors need one parent/guardian present. Only one person will be allowed in the studio at a time (except minors and their parent or guardian). Appointments will be spaced apart in a way that all surfaces will be cleaned thoroughly between each client. No piercings for children.
Release forms will be emailed to you the day before your appointment. Please complete the form with a photo of your ID prior to arriving. *Minors please scroll down for a detailed list of appropriate documentation. If the release form is not complete upon arrival, it may result in a cancellation of the appointment and a cancellation fee. IDs will be checked when you arrive.
If you are feeling sick, please do not come in. If you have come in contact with anyone who is sick in the past two weeks, please do not come in.
Please wait at least 30 days after traveling outside the country to book an appointment. We will reschedule your appointment if you've been out of the country for the past 30 days.
Due to our limited availability, we will be implementing a $30 cancellation fee per service booked.
Depending on the location of your piercing, our piercing fee starts at $45 plus the cost of jewelry, but the price will vary greatly based on your location and the jewelry you select. Altogether, a cartilage piercing with titanium jewelry starts at around $80 and goes up from there. If you would like a specific quote, contact us for a consultation. We love to help.
All surfaces are carefully disinfected between clients, and jewelry is sterilized using top-of-the-line autoclaves. Piercings are made with a single-use tri bevel needle, and all tools used for the procedure are also single-use and disposed of.
Masks must be worn properly at all times by both the piercer and the client, and hand sanitizer will be provided before and after each procedure. No exceptions.
When getting cartilage piercings, it’s important that 1 ear heals at a time to ensure you have a safe ear to sleep on, talk on the phone, and give hugs with! If you have a cartilage piercing healing on one side, we’ll only add a new one on the same side. If you’re getting multiple cartilage piercings, they’ll all need to be on the same ear.
Our bodies are all very different and it's important for us to review your anatomy to ensure perfect placement and healing. A consultation is always included during your appointment.
As much as we love hoops and round rings, they do not support proper healing (for most piercings), therefore are not allowed for most new piercings. It's important to us that you heal well. We will always use jewelry a little longer than you'll ultimately need to ensure you have space for swelling and a comfortable, fast healing process.
We will email you a release form, which must be completed and returned with a photo of your ID prior to arriving. If it's not complete upon arrival, we may have to cancel your appointment, which could result in a cancellation fee.
Any cancellations made less than 24 hours prior will be charged a
Our space is small and gets crowded quickly. We no longer allow guests in the studio, so please come solo. Unless you're a minor. Minors need one parent or guardian present.
Allow yourself enough time for parking. Bring quarters for the meters or give yourself time to walk from a nearby parking garage. Do not park in the motel parking next door, your car will likely be towed. If you are later than 10 minutes, we may have to reschedule and you will be charged the cancellation fee.
During your appointment, we will schedule a follow-up to downsize to a shorter backing. After the swelling has gone down, it’s important for the healing to switch to a shorter, better-fitting post. This eliminates excess movement and esthetically looks better! There is an additional cost to purchase the new post but we always offer 20% off shorter jewelry.
Once you leave the studio with your fresh piercing, you now have the responsibility of making sure it stays clean.
Do. Not. Touch. It.
The less action your piercing gets, the better. Try not to sleep on it, take advantage of your phone's speaker function, avoid getting hair products, make-up, soaps, or lotions on it, and make sure that pillows or any other material touching it is always clean.
Keep your piercing free of any buildup by rinsing it thoroughly with sterile saline at least twice a day. Don't touch or move the jewelry. Movement forces buildup which causes more trauma and introduces bacteria. Be sure to use a saline solution or nasal spray.
Your most thorough cleaning of the day will always be in the shower. When you're finished, be sure to rinse your piercing with running water to flush off any buildup or soap residue. For facial piercings, also flush with water after a face wash. For nostril piercings, pool up hot water in your hands and use your nose to blow bubbles in the water. This flushes out the inside of your nostril without touching it. For oral piercings, rinse your mouth with cold clean water in the morning, before bed, and after every meal. You can also eat ice to alleviate any swelling.
It is normal during the healing process to have some swelling, redness, bruising, minor bleeding, and tenderness. Your piercing will heal from the outside in, and may not be completely healed even if it feels like it is. Even after it is healed, never leave your jewelry out for an extended period of time. Everybody is different, and it may begin to close more quickly than you'd think.
By continuing to schedule an appointment, you're agreeing to the information above. While these instructions are guidelines, they're not to be considered a substitute for medical advice from a doctor. If you suspect an infection, please seek medical attention.
We're happy to pierce ages 16+ with parental consent. A valid photo ID is required from you and your parent, and your parent must be present. *This includes driver's license, state ID, passport, and military ID. If your last name differs from your parent's, you must bring your birth certificate and your photo ID. If your parent is not your legal guardian, you will need to supply the proper paperwork to prove legal guardianship. No exceptions.
No nipple piercings under 18. Sorry, please come back when you're of age. If you're pregnant or nursing, we can't wait to see you another time. If you're *at all* confused, please use the button in the bottom right corner of your screen to call and ask our lovely receptionist.
