Consider your style, the placement of the piercing, and your lifestyle. It's important to research the piercing you're interested in, including the healing process and aftercare.
Pain levels can vary depending on the individual and the location of the piercing. However, most people describe the pain as tolerable and short-lived.
Healing times vary depending on the piercing and the individual. Some piercings can take several months to a year to fully heal. Therefore, it's important to follow proper aftercare instructions.
Follow your piercer's aftercare instructions closely. Generally, this includes cleaning the piercing regularly with a saline solution and avoiding touching the piercing with dirty hands.
It’s best to wait until your piercing is fully healed before changing jewelry. Changing jewelry too soon can disrupt the healing process and cause complications.
We only pierce with needles.
We have titanium and gold.
It's best to avoid swimming or submerging your new piercing in water until it's fully healed. Chlorine and other chemicals in pools and hot tubs can irritate the piercing and slow healing.
No, our piercing services don’t have an age requirement, provided a minor’s legal guardian (with valid identification) is present and willing to sign a consent form.
Eat a meal beforehand: Eating a light meal before your piercing can help to prevent nausea or fainting.
Bring proper identification: If you're under 18 and need parental consent, bring a legal guardian with you who has appropriate identification.
Be punctual: Arrive on time for your appointment so you have enough time to complete any paperwork and ask any questions.
Be prepared to follow aftercare instructions: Follow your piercer's aftercare instructions closely to ensure that your piercing heals appropriately and to minimize the risk of complications.
Easy! Simply send us an email with your idea, reference images, desired placement, and preferred artist.
If you are looking for cover-up work, please send an image of the tattoo so we can further advise you. Very often, the existing tattoo can successfully be covered. However, there are instances where we may encourage laser tattoo removal to lighten the tattoo and provide you with more cover-up options.
The shop deposit varies from $100-$500 depending on the scale of your project. This deposit is non-refundable (no exceptions) but will be credited towards the cost of the tattoo. If the tattoo needs to be completed in multiple sessions, the deposit will be credited to the last session for that specific tattoo.
For our tattoo services, our shop minimum is $100.
You must be at least 18 years old with a valid state/government-issued ID. We will NOT tattoo anyone under the age of 18, NO EXCEPTIONS.
