1. Does it hurt?

There will be pain and discomfort during the procedure. The amount of pain depends on the location of the piercing. We have found in our experience, that people do not experience as much pain as they originally expected. Pain is also dependent upon the pain tolerance of the individual. It is important to remember that the procedure is relatively quick.

2. Do you use a piercing gun or a needle?

For every piercing, including lobes, we use a needle. This causes the piercing area less trauma.

3. How long should it take for my piercing to heal?

It depends on the piercing and the person. Some piercings take 4 weeks to heal; others can take up to several months. Your piercer should go over this information with you at the end of your appointment. If you have questions about your specific piercing in regard to healing time, please call (512) 761-3972.

It WILL take LONGER for your piercing to heal if you over-clean, touch, or participate in any activity that irritates your new piercing.

4. What do you mean by over-clean?

Over-cleaning occurs when you clean your piercing more than 2-3 times a day. It is best to clean it only a few times a day and leave it alone the rest of the day.

5. Is it safe?

Your health and safety is very important to us. We use single-use needles, and autoclaved sterilized clamps. Our piercers wear gloves and use sterilized jewelry.

6. If I am a minor and I want a piercing, what is required?

We require your parent to be present, a form of identification for him/her (such as a driver’s license), and a legal form of identification for you (such as a driver’s license or birth certificate)

If you have any other questions, please feel free to call (512) 761-3972.
