Piercings for Kids!
Minor Piercings under the age of 16 are temporarily suspended  for the safety of your children due to COVID-19. 

We are excited to hear that your child has expressed interest in ear piercings! We take pride in our safe, clean, and friendly environment to offer the best piercing experience possible for your young one. 

 

We consider working with children a delicate matter and handle it as such. 20+ years of experience have guided us to realize that children younger than 7 are not typically able to make a conscious choice and it is a more enjoyable experience for them when they are involved in the decision.   We consider this our starting age to begin piercing for your young one.

Please read the following information before scheduling your appointment.  

Preparation 

First and foremost, it is important to prepare your child for their big day. We recommend that they come to their appointment willing and ready. Surprises are nice, but the overall experience is much more smooth for all people involved when the child feels like they are in the driver's seat.

 

Is your child in sports or swimming? 

Ear lobe piercings take a minimum of 8 weeks to fully heal. During the healing process we recommend against removing the jewelry. We also advise that the piercings not be submerged in chemically treated or bacteria ridden water such as lake, ocean, swimming pool, hottub, or bath throughout the duration of the healing time (showering is fine).

Call ahead

Appointments are required for children aged 7-9 years old. No exceptions. Appointments need to be made 24 hours prior to the appointment time. 

 

Appointment times are limited between the hours of 11am to 2pm Monday- Saturday, and 12-2pm on Sundays. 

Deposit

Upon scheduling the appointment, we require a $20 non-refundable deposit/ set-up fee. This deposit comes off the total price on the day of service. We require a 24 hour notice for rescheduling if you wish to transfer your deposit. Canceled appointments will not be refunded the deposit. Deposits will not be refunded If the child no longer wishes to receive services on the day of their appointment.  

Identification requirements  

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to receive any piercing related services; including jewelry inserts and removals.

A valid, government issued form of identification is required for both the parent/ guardian and child.
For minors, we will accept a birth certificate or passport.

Note that last names OR address must match on the minor and guardians ID’s. If the last names or address on each party’s ID’s do not match, please bring proof of legal guardianship. 

Plan accordingly 

We understand that getting pierced for the first time is a big deal! Parents, siblings, and other family members are excited to see their young one reach this new height. 

 

Feel free to bring along a family member or two to join us in the piercing room! We only ask that you keep the other kiddos behind as they will not be granted permittance to the studio. We will not allow any minors to wait in the lobby for the piercing to finish- even if they are accompanied by an adult. Other minors are not permitted entry unless they are receiving services.

 

This policy limits distractions during the piercing and eliminates liability concerns regarding the other minors. 

Eat

We recommend that your child has eaten something within 3 hours of the appointment to avoid becoming nauseous or faint.
