DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?

Click our "booking" page under the piercing tab for info on how to book your next appointment!
DO YOU PIERCE MINORS?
Minors 13 to 17 are welcome!
ID is required for ALL clients. This includes minors! Minors are required to bring a Legal Guardian.
Both parties will need to bring legal ID. We currently accept School ID, Passport, Permit, Birth Certificate & License for minors. Last name on the Minor's form of ID MUST MATCH Legal guardian. If you are not the parent, we require proof of guardianship.
[Our piercing staff understands the concerns and questions parents may have involving body piercing technique, sterile practices and aftercare procedures. It should be noted that piercing appointments are set for 30 minutes each. Around ten minutes of this time is dedicated to discussing aftercare, but if you anticipate that you, or your parent/guardian may require additional time to ask questions or express concerns, we strongly encourage you to let us know when we set your appointment so that we can assign extra time for a consultation, or to ask those questions ahead via email.]
WHAT KIND OF JEWERLY DO YOU CARRY?
We take special care to ensure that the jewelry we stock is up to industry standards in both style and material.
We carry implant grade titanium (Ti-6Al-4v Eli ASTM F136), Niobium and 14k & 18k gold.
We also have a small selection of implant grade steel jewelry reserved for fully healed piercings.
CAN I BRING MY OWN JEWELRY IN TO BE PIERCED WITH?
Short answer - NO.
We offer a wide range of jewelry options to select from. Each of the pieces we provide are sterilized to ensure proper healing, and are up to industry standards in style and material. We have no way of knowing what the jewelry you bring in is made of or what kind of germs it may be previously exposed to, making it unsafe to use in a fresh piercing!
[On occasion we make an exception to this rule, particularly if you'd like to swap jewelry on a healed piercing. In order for us to do this, the jewelry you bring must be new and in a sealed, never-been-opened package.]
DO YOU SELL ALL THE AFTERCARE PRODUCTS I’LL NEED?
Yes, we proudly carry Steri-Wash, a drug & preservative-free sterile saline solution, perfectly balanced to gently flush wounds! The only topical product we suggest when caring for a piercing is Sterile Saline. More info about caring for your piercing can be found under the piercing tab in our Aftercare Pamphlet.
HOW MANY PIERCERS DO YOU HAVE?
At this time, we have a one Body Piercer and one Apprentice. Our full time piercer Kameko is at the shop Tuesday-Saturday 3pm to 9pm by appointment only. Her openings will vary weekly as she is also a apprentice tattoo artist.
