The Piercing Process
Understanding the process from start to finish can help ease any nervousness you may be feeling. At all three of our piercing shops, you can expect a warm, welcoming experience that includes:
Consultation – The piercing you're interested in will be discussed to determine if it's a suitable lifestyle/health fit.
Paperwork – Time for some quick (but important) paperwork and ID check. A parent/guardian is required to be present and give their consent for any piercing done on a minor.
Preparation – Your piercer will select the appropriate equipment, prepare a sterile workstation, and mark the piercing site on your body for review.
Piercing – Using a needle or other sharp piercing instrument, the technician will pierce the designated area, insert the jewelry, and secure it.
Aftercare – You'll be provided with detailed aftercare instructions specific to the piercing you chose. A follow-up appointment may be necessary to ensure proper healing.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 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.
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.
