CAN I GET PIERCED WITH MY OWN JEWELRY?

There are times that we can pierce you with your own jewelry, but the jewelry we pierce with is very specific. I needs to be Body Jewelry and the appropriate measurement that is safe for healing. We do not use Ready to Wear jewelry (butterfly backing) to pierce with. It would be best to come to the shop to show us your jewelry in order for us to assess whether or not we can pierce with it. We pierce with ASTM F-138 stainless steel, ASTM F-136 titanium, niobium, 14K and 18K gold. Jewelry must be internally threaded and of proper length or must be a "push fit" piece to be pierced with. Your initial jewelry may be slightly longer to allow room for swelling. Once healed, jewelry can be down sized for a more comfortable fit.

 

How CAN I PAY FOR MY PIERCING?

We accept cash, gift certificates, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express.

 

 

DO I HAVE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Yes, we require appointments for all piercing services, jewelry changes, and removals. You can set up an appointment by calling us at 212.473.0007 between 1 PM and 9 PM or stopping by the shop. We occasionally have cancellations or are ahead of schedule which we can fill with walk-ins. If you are feeling impulsive, call the shop and see if there is any availability for that day.

 

How old do I have to be TO GET PIERCED?

You must be 18 years of age or older with a government issued photo I.D. such as a driver's license or passport. There are no exceptions, even with parental consent.
