Bill of Rights

 

Every client has the right to:

  • Be pierced in a clean, hygenic, private environment;
  • Be pierced by a trained, clean, sober, conscientious piercer who follows only the highest standards of sterilization and hygenic techniques;
  • Be pierced with appropriately sterilized equipment, jewelry, and single-use piercing needles which are then immediately disposed of in a medical sharps container, after piercing is complete;
  • Never be pierced with a “piercing gun” which cannot be sterilized properly, and can actually be dangerous to your health;
  • Have only well-designed implant-grade jewelry of appropriate size installed in your new piercing;
  • Written after-care instructions and continued access to your piercer for any questions or assistance you feel you may need;
  • Change your mind at any time without feeling obligated or pressured in any way to complete the piercing process.

How clean are your procedures?

  • Performing piercings in a safe, clean and responsible manner is our number one priority. It doesn’t matter how nice your piercing looks or how cheap your piercing was if you get an infection as a result of it. We use an aseptic technique to perform all piercings.
  • We use disposable gloves for all piercings. These gloves are changed frequently throughout the procedure to avoid contamination of the client and surfaces in the piercing room.
  • Needles are autoclave-sterilized before they are used. Needles are disposed of, in front of the client, immediately after the piercing is performed. Needles are never used more than once.
  • Any implements that are not disposable, such as forceps or receiving tubes, are cleaned, disinfected and autoclave-sterilized prior to use on anyone.
  • All jewelry is autoclave-sterilized before insertion into any new piercing.
  • We never use ear piercing guns; not even for earlobe piercings. Guns typically cannot be adequately sterilized.

 

Will it hurt?   

  • Yes. There is a small amount of pain, but usually not as much as people anticipate. Clients often tell us that the procedure was considerably less painful than they thought it would be. We do everything we can to make the experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

 

Do you/can you numb the area first?

  • We do not use, or suggest, anesthetics because injectable and topical anesthetics can be deadly in the hands of someone who does not know how to use them. Only properly licensed medical professionals can legally administer injectable and topical anesthetics. In addition, a properly performed piercing by a knowledgeable, professional hurts far less than such an injection
