Minor Piercing Requirements

Due to the nature of our business, we don't allow anyone under the age of 12 years in the studio (We have a bench right outside the studio so you can bring an adult that can watch your child while you are here).  
Minors getting pierced must be with a parent & the youngest we pierce is 13 years of age. See information below. 
If you are 18 years or older scroll to the bottom.
What we will pierce on minors
A parent or legal guardian must be present and stay for the piercing, no exceptions!

If the piercing you want is not listed then you must 
wait until you are 18 years of age.

Minor piercing is done on a case-by-case basis; The Minor must show they
understand the responsibilities and commitment associated with receiving
and care of having a piercing. The Minor cannot be coerced or talked-into 
getting the piercing and they must ask us for it themselves.  
Halo reserves the right of refusal for any minor piercing at any time.

COMMON SENSE

For the best possible piercing experience you should be well rested and have a bite to eat before getting a piercing. Good personal hygiene is crucial to healing a piercing. A good attitude and focused state of mind help immensely. Be nice to your parent/s while you are in the shop as they are going out of their way for you. If you are disrespectful we feel you are not mature enough to take proper care of your piercing and will refuse service. Listen to your piercer, they will guide you through your piercing to make it as quick and painless as possible.

Remember, this is a cooperative effort between you and your piercer. Do not come in under the influence of alcohol or drugs as it actually makes your piercing worse and we will not work on you. Inform your piercer if you have any existing medical conditions. Follow the provided aftercare to successfully heal as quickly as possible. Ask any and all questions you may have before you get pierced.

We want you to be as informed as possible. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions. 
If you are 18 years or older the law requires a valid state issued photo ID / passport and it must be current. No Paper ID, School,Faded, Altered or Expired ID's will be accepted. 
Your birthday must be on the ID.

Thank you.
