20) Can you pierce me with this?back to top
We use sterilized implantation grade surgical steel jewelry for all of our initial piercings. Tongue, labret, monroe, medusa,female nipples and frenum piercings are typically done with barbell or labret jewelry. Most other piercings are done with rings. We use very specific forms of starter jewelry for your initial piercing to ensure your safety and health during your piercings respective healing process. Once the piercing is fully healed it is safe to take out the initial jewelry and replace it with something that is engaged to your personal asthetic. Please note we will not pierce you with random jewelry off the street. All of our jewelry used for initial piercing has been sterilized and is made from surgical stainless steel for your protection.
21) Will it get infected?back to top
Like all wounds or punctures, if your piercings are not properly cleaned and taken care of they can get infected. Many common problems and irratations that can occur with a new body piercing are often misdiagnosed as infections by clients and their friends. Please read your aftercare carefully and follow the instructions to the letter. This will avoid the risk of you getting an infection.

25) Can I bring my child?back to top
We highly reccomend that you leave your children at home when you come in for services. We require adult supervision with the child at all times while in the shop. We will not pierce you with your child present in the room. No matter how mature or open minded the child is, it makes for an uncomfortable situation for the child and the piercer.
26) Can my friend come in?back to top
We always encourage moral support. However inside the piercing room we can only accommodate the piercer and his client. The only exception to this rule is for piercings of an intimate nature. Friends of the client may watch from the reception area provided where the environment is not distracting to our body piercer.
