Piercing Consultation
Have a few questions about your next piercing? Maybe you plan on bringing in your child for their first piercing? A consultation is recommended for minors between 7-10 years of age, and there is a 24 hour waiting period once the consultation is complete to be pierced. Let us help ease those nerves and address any questions or concerns you may have! Please specify which piercing you would like to discuss in the "Appointment Notes" section.
Check-up/Downsize
Congratulations on your latest piercing! Once the initial swelling subsides, it's recommended to purchase a smaller ring or shorter post to prevent snagging and catching during day-to-day activities. Be sure to check your aftercare postcard to for your specified Check-up/Downsize timeframe.
