Studio Policies & Requirements


I.D. Requirements

Everyone getting pierced or receiving jewelry installation / removal services is required to have a state or federally issued photo I.D. that is not expired. This must be a physical card (no copies) and be presented at each visit with our studio. It is illegal to copy military IDs therefore we cannot accept them as identification for your release form. School ID's and prison ID's are not acceptable forms of ID.


The only exception to this is for minor earlobes (see below).

Who Can Be In the Piercing Room?



One person is allowed in the piercing room with the client getting pierced. Individuals watching the piercing must be 18 years or older, have valid I.D. and sign the request to accompany release. For minor piercings, the parent / legal guardian who signs for the piercing is required to be in the room.

COVID UPDATE: Due to the pandemic we are only allowed to have the client in the piercing room, no guests.

Minor Requirements

Minors (under 18) are required to have the following documentation to be pierced or receive jewelry installation/removal services.

  • State or Federally Issued Photo I.D. for Minor

  • Birth Certificate or custody papers

  • Parent / Legal Guardian with State or Federally Issued Photo I.D.


The parent that is signing for you must be listed on your Birth Certificate. If your legal guardian is not on your Birth Certificate, we require the original court paperwork assigning custody.

Age Restrictions

We can pierce earlobes as soon as your little one turns 6 years old. We require the minor's Birth Certificate and the parent / legal guardian's I.D. If the legal guardian is not listed on the Birth Certificate, we require the original court paperwork assigning custody.

For all other body piercings, minors must be at least 14 years old and bring in all items listed under the section "Minor Requirements."

We do not perform tongue, nipple, genital or surface piercings on minors.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that sometimes, unexpected delays can occur, making schedule adjustments. If you need to cancel your appointment, we respectfully request at least a 3 hour notice.

Our Policy:

  • Any cancellation or reschedule made less than 3 hours will result in a $10 cancellation fee.

  • If you are more than 10 minutes late for your service or do not have proper documentation, we may not be able to accommodate you. In this case, the same cancellation fee will apply.

  • We require a credit card to hold your appointment. Cancellation fees will be charged to your card on file.

No Call, No Show Policy

When you book your appointment, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to our other clients. Because our studio is by appointment only at this time it is important to notify us if you will not be able to make it in. Clients that no call, no show to their appointment will be charged their full piercing service fee to the card on file.

We understand that due to COVID-19, ID's that have recently expired have not been able to be renewed. The DOL should have sent you a letter to carry around with your expired ID. We will need this is addition to your expired ID to fill out your release form, no exceptions. If you arrive to your appointment without proper documentation, you will be charged our $10 cancellation fee.
