Do I need an appointment?

It is encouraged to call ahead for any piercing service. Although walk-ins are always welcome please be advised there will be forms to Fill out and extra paper work if you are under 18. If you’re under 18, parent must fill out forms (and return with it notarized) and include their birth certificate, photo ID of the parents, child’s, and payment.

Does it hurt?

Yes, but for less than a second and significantly less than most people anticipate.  We are constantly told “That didn’t hurt nearly as much as I thought it would.”

What are the chances of getting an infection?

Following our aftercare suggestions faithfully, the chances of getting an infection are virtually nonexistent. We take great care to ensure that all piercings are performed in a clean environment, using sterile equipment. After that, it’s up to you. Introducing bacteria to a piercing (i.e.: touching the piercing with unwashed hands) is how most piercings become infected. There are, however, many conditions that are not infections that may be mistaken as such. They include mistreatment of the piercing, reactions to metal or cleaning agent(s) you are using. Consult any of the piercers at the shop with any questions or concerns.

My employer doesn’t allow piercings… What should I do?

Many people have this same dilemma. Often, you can still keep your piercing by simply investing in a retainer (a clear, or flesh-toned Pyrex or quartz piece), that will keep your piercing open, but appear almost invisible to the unsuspecting eye. Ask about our selection!!!
