*Ear lobe piercings are available for minors as young as 5 years old. For little ones aged 5-8 we do require a pre-piercing consultation prior to scheduling the actual piercing appointment.
We like to allow kids the opportunity to familiarize themselves with their piercer and the studio. Taking the time to talk about what to expect, what to do to prepare for the day of, how the piercing process works, how to care for their new piercings and seeing if they are up to the task of maintaining their new piercings and being patient through the healing is important for everyone.
Piercing appointments for minors age 5-8 are required and available from 10am - 12 noon and must be scheduled ahead of time. During these hours most of the tattoo artists are not working and we can make it as relaxing and stress-free as possible :) For minors age 9+ appointments are still suggested but not required necessarily.
Piercings are a commitment and there are some restrictions to activities that may affect your child's lifestyle. Swimming is a big one, fresh piercings should not be submerged in any body of water (baths, pools, lakes, rivers or ocean water) for 1-3 months on average.
Contact sports and rough housing also increase the chances of trauma and subsequent irritation.
Some extracurricular activities such as sports, band, and after-school clubs and or jobs will not allow for certain piercings so checking into that ahead of time is a good idea.
Feel Free to call us with any additional questions and we’ll happy to answer them!
