Our Age Requirements

As a professional studio with roots in our community, we not only hold high standards of sterility and customer service, but we also have a higher standard of care than the minimum legal requirement.

Because of this, we are an 18+ piercing studio. We will pierce anybody who is able to give consent (usually 4 years or older) as long as a parent (or legal guardian) accompanies them to the studio on the day, and both parties have appropriate ID.

Kids

We will pierce anyone who is able to consent to having their body altered, so usually any enthusiastic child aged 4 and up shouldn’t be a problem! Our studio is kid-friendly (let’s face it, we are just big kids ourselves)!

As a professional piercing studio, we ONLY use single-use, sterile needles to pierce, and we do multiple piercings in tandem (at the same time) as standard. Guns are YUCKY and put your child at risk.

All of our piercers are APP members. You can read more about why that is so important for your little one’s safety here.

We have a HUGE selection of professional-grade jewellery suitable to be pierced with, in a variety of different sizes/gauges/styles.

 

You just pay the service fee, the ASTM F-136 implant-grade titanium jewellery and the sterile saline aftercare spray.

 

DON’T FORGET TO BOOK IN!

We can’t wait to see you and your little ones soon!

Care of the State or emancipation:

If the client is under the age of 18 and is in care of the state or legally emancipated, we will require signed documents from the court stating who is responsible for their care as well as valid ID from both parties (where applicable).

Numbing beforehand:

We find most excited youngsters are totally fine without the need for any topical numbing as the discomfort is very short and the piercings very fast, however, if you feel the need to do so please ensure you apply the cream 30-45 mins prior (as per package instructions).

We refuse service of any intimate piercing of a person under the age of 18, even with parental permission.

Recommended Minimum Ages

Although every person develops at a different rate,  we have established rough age groups to help you decide if a piercing is right for you or your child.  A pre-consultation may be required to discuss lifestyle, sports, and anatomical viability.
