Please note: Due to the nature of our business, we don't allow anyone under the age of 12 years in the studio. We have additional seating right outside the front door for waiting. Please bring another adult to watch your child while you’re inside.

Minors 13 years and older can be pierced and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The parent or legal guardian must also stay for the piercing; we cannot make an exception to this rule.

The minor must show they understand the responsibilities associated with getting a piercing and the commitment to aftercare of the piercing.

The minor cannot be coerced or talked into getting the piercing and they must ask us for it themselves.
