FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Is there any piercings you WON’T do? We will not do piercings that…
    • Aren’t safe
    • Won’t fit your anatomy & heal properly
    • On any person visibly intoxicated or under the influence
    • Are on people being jerks – don’t be a jerk!
    • If we choose to refuse any service, we will advise you of our reasoning along with any potential problems & longevity issues that may arise from your decision to have that particular piercing performed.
  • What do I need to know BEFORE getting pierced?
    • It’s always best to be pierced in as natural a state as possible. It’s better not to be pierced under adverse circumstances.
    • If you’re sick or under the weather, please wait until you’re feeling better before getting pierced.
    • Make sure to eat something a few hours before you come in. Getting pierced on an empty stomach may cause you to feel faint, nauseated, or dizzy.
    • Allow plenty of time for your visit. Your piercing session will be most enjoyable if you have time to appreciate it.
    • Proper hygiene is extremely important before & after getting pierced. Fresh clothing and a recent shower will get your new piercing off to a great start.
  • Is getting pierced safe?
    • At our shop, absolutely. We take great pride in cleanliness & safety for both YOU, the client, and for our piercing staff. We adhere to strict protocols to avoid any & all cross-contamination and we provide new, sterile, disposable needles for every client. You will witness the piercing needles opened in front of you prior to your service, as well as their disposal into a regulated sharps container immediately upon completion of your piercing to ensure they are never used again.
  • Do piercings hurt?
    • Yes, piercings hurt a little – but more than anything it’s just a quick pinch & you’re done. Pain is relative & everyone has a different tolerance.  But rest assured, people would not be returning again & again for piercing after piercing if it hurt that bad.
  • Do I have to make an appointment?
    • Nope! We do have posted hours for walk-in appointments. HOWEVER, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND calling the shop or message your piercer directly before making the trip, especially if you:
      • Have time constraints
      • Are coming from a long distance
      • Are under 18 years of age
      • It would suck to get here only to find out your piercer is off or we’re already booked that day! (Each piercer’s contact info is on their portfolio page.)
