How to Prepare for your Appointment:
We require a valid government issued ID or passport for everyone 18 years or older that is getting pierced.
If you are a under 18, your parent/guardian must be present for the entire procedure. We require a valid government issued ID or student ID with birth certificate as well as your parent/guardian's ID. If your guardian's last name does not match your own we will need proof of guardianship (birth certificate).
* Be sure to treat yourself to a good meal an hour or so before getting pierced. Getting poked with a needle is no fun on an empty stomach.
