How much should I tip my piercer?
Piercing is a service industry and anyone who has had more than one or two people pierce them has probably realized that there is a vast difference between ok service and excellent service. Standard tipping practice is much like a server at a restaurant but a ten or twenty dollar bill is always appreciated for a job well done. Cash is preferred but our staff can add a tip to your credit ticket upon checkout.
Do you pierce little kids' ears?
We do indeed! Our piercers are pros at making your kiddo comfortable and making the whole experience fun and safe. We require that the child be old enough to know what is going on and want to have the piercings.
We usually find that the best ages are between 6 and 8 at a minimum. Any younger than that and they typically have a hard time letting go and relaxing. The requirement is that the child be able to lie flat and relax in spite of nervousness. Our piercers will be exceptionally kind and patient with them, but there are some situations where we will have to call off the piercings due to squirminess or if the child becomes upset. Our goal is to make this a positive experience for your young one and under no circumstances will we force them to do something they are having a hard time with. Sometimes bringing a favorite stuffed animal with can help make them feel comfortable.
We also encourage you to bring your child in prior to the date of piercing if possible so they can meet their piercer and be in our studio without the fear of getting pierced. That way when they come back for the piercings there will be some familiarity.
What about infants?
We are not comfortable piercing anyone who cannot willingly consent to the experience. This includes infants and very young children.
Do you do intimate piercings? Where can I view a portfolio of your work?
Our piercers are very experienced with all manners of safe piercing, including intimate piercings. Please do not hesitate to contact or stop by to speak with our staff about your goals. We approach this with the utmost of professionalism and take your confidentiality very seriously.
Can I bring my own jewelry to get pierced with?
In short, no. We want to give you the best, safest piercing possible. Part of doing that is using a brand new, high quality piece of jewelry. Since we cannot guarantee the origin or material of jewelry purchased elsewhere, we cannot guarantee it's safety like we can with the jewelry that we carry from trusted, American manufacturers.
