Make sure you are well rested, well hydrated, and have eaten recently. Aside from that, take a shower, charge your phone or tablet up to full, and don’t bring in your 50 closest friends (1-2 are fine).
It’s more important to be comfortable than to be fashionable. Looser is better than tighter, and keep in mind you want to be able to cover up certain places that might show depending on where you are getting your piercing.
• Take a shower• Don’t bring your kids. No really, don’t bring them.• Bring all of the necessary documentation• Good work costs money - so bring it!• Eat before you come in!• If you’re diabetic plan for a crash (and prepare yourself!)
You should not get pierced when you are:• Drunk• High• Pregnant• Pre-Surgery• Post-Surgery• When you don’t know what you want• When you can’t afford it• When you’re sunburned• When you haven’t showered• When you have your kids with you• If you don’t have an ID• Being pressured into it
If tattoos are a 3/10 on a pain scale, piercings are probably 7-9/10. Piercings are far more painful than tattoos - but only for a very short period of time. This is why people pass out WAY more often with piercings than with tattoos.
Plan on a 4-6 weeks for your skin to be back to its previous state.
Earlobes are $25 for the pair
All other non-exotic piercings (nose, cartilage, navel, nipples, lips, etc) are $30 per hole
If you get more than one piercing we will take off $5 per hole (so nipples are $50/pair, industrial piercings are $50, etc)
You should ALWAYS tip those who provide services for you. Whether it’s your barber/hairstylist, waiter, or the kids with a lemonade stand down the street, if they provide you a service you should tip them. This includes your tattoo artist or piercer.
We LOVE to give stuff away. It makes us feel good. In our first year we gave away 10% of our gross income to our community. We charge what we do because we are creating unique art that will last your entire life.
Wabash County Health Department determines the ages we are able to work on. For tattoos, we can tattoo minors age 16+ with a parent present and the proper identification (birth certificate with both names as well as photo IDs for child and parent - these are required for anything we do on a minor). For piercings, we can only do earlobes for those under age 14 and my piercer will stop and not do the piercing if the child says no. Starting at age 14 we can pierce anything (besides nipples and genitals) with the above consent.
We always encourage people to book an appointment.What Happens if I’m Late to My Appointment?Don’t be. Seriously, if you’re late to your appointment it will throw our schedule off for the day.
We’ve only ever had two people do this and it’s a terrible idea. If you no-show we will keep your deposit. That means your piercing, if you do get it, will cost you 150% of what it should have cost.
