How to prepare for an appointment?
We require a few things to be able to perform piercings such as a government-issued ID as we require ID for age verification. Additionally, you must have eaten within 3 hours of your appointment.
Accepted forms of ID: Purple ID card, Drivers license, Health Card, Birth Certificate, and Passport.
Under 16: We require a parent/guardian signature for clients younger than 16.
Due to health and safety regulations we are NOT able to pierce you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Extra safety measures
To keep everyone extra safe, we have a few new measures:
- You must show up for your appointment alone. Parents and legal guardians excepted for clients younger than 16.
- We can only pierce clients 14 years old and up for the time being.
- You must wear a face cover for the entire duration of your appointment.
- If you are feeling sick, please call the store to reschedule your appointment.
How does the appointment work?
You are required to show up for your appointment 5 minutes prior to the scheduled time. This is to ensure you have enough time to select your piercing jewelry, be screened, and fill out our intake form.
How does the deposit work?
The total cost of your piercing will be service price + jewelry price + tax. No surprises.
The $25 deposit paid at the time of booking is deducted from your total cost on the day of your appointment. Deposits are non-refundable and arriving late or no-shows results in forfeiting the deposit.
What is the minimum age to get a Helix piercing?
We offer helix piercings to clients 14 years and up, provided a parent or legal guardian is present. Clients 16 years old and up can get a helix piercing without the presence of a parent or legal guardian.
Ready to level-up your piercing game?
Our piercers are extensively trained and strictly pierce with needles (no piercing guns!) and use disposable tools. All our jewelry is body-safe and sterilized. Only the finest - and safest! We carry solid 14k yellow, rose, and white gold, as well as implant-grade titanium and niobium jewelry.
When is it time to downsize the Jewelry Post?
Once the piercing is fully healed (time-frame differs for each piercing) and the jewelry is able to freely slide back and forth without feeling any pain or discomfort, it is time to book an appointment to have your labret post downsized. There is no service charge but each labret post will be $15 + HST.
