"Does it hurt?"
Most piercings are described as a quick pinch but some placements can be slightly more intense than others.
"I'm under 18. Can my friend/sister/cousin/etc. sign for me instead of my parent?"
State legislation requires that only a parent or legal guardian can give notarized consent for the piercing of a minor.
"Do you take walk-ins or should I make an appointment?"
We take both walk-ins and appointments, but for your convenience, we suggest making an appointment.
"I am sensitive to metals. Can I get pierced at your shop?"
Metal allergies are a result of heavy metals and nickel in the jewelry. All of our jewelry is medical implant-grade, meaning that it contains no heavy metals and will not expose your body to nickel.
"If I get jewelry somewhere else will you pierce me with it or put it in for me?"
We may, to a certain extent. The jewelry must meet the standards that we hold for all jewelry that we sell.
"Should I use Bactine/Hydrogen Peroxide/Alcohol/Iodine/Neosporin on my new piercing?"
Most of these products are just too strong for piercings. They break the connections between the new cells that your body is producing to heal the piercing. As for petroleum-based products like Neosporin, it will accumulate in the piercing and trap bacteria.
