Can I get pierced with my own jewelry?

We do not pierce with jewelry from outside of the shop because we can’t guarantee the quality of it and that is a huge part of a successful heal. We only carry the best quality, implant grade body jewelry available in the industry from companies such as BVLA, Anatometal, Industrial Strength, LeRoi, Maya, Tawapa, and more. All of the jewelry we carries a lifetime guarantee on defects.

What if I just need to grab something quickly and don’t need to be shown jewelry or sized for any jewelry?

For situations like this, we are offering curbside pickup during business hours. Please see “curbside pickup” in the “appointments” section.

How long do I have to wait to go swimming?

Healing piercings should not be submerged in any kind of outside water (pools, lake, hot tubs, oceans) until you are through the full healing time (see your aftercare email for healing time of your piercing).

What if I need to remove my jewelry while it’s healing?

Healing piercings, or piercings within the first year of the maximum healing time, rarely stay open without jewelry in them. We do sell retainers, which are glass plugs to hold the hole open in cases you need to not have metal in, but they are not recommended for sports. Please consider these factors before booking an appointment.

Can I get pierced if I’m currently pregnant or nursing?

Unfortunately, no, you must wait until after giving birth and after you’ve stopped nursing to get a piercing done safely.

Do you accept walk ins?

No, we do not accept walk ins for any piercings OR jewelry sales.

Do I need an ID to get pierced?

YES. (please see above for acceptable IDs)

What if my parent is signing for me? Do I still need an ID?

YES. (please see above for acceptable IDs)

All sales of body jewelry are final and cannot be returned or exchanged. If you are having an issue with a piece of jewelry purchased here, please contact Georgina through the contact page on this website.

What if I need to cancel an appointment I booked?
