Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your piercing prices?

Our piercing prices are comprised of the piercing fee ($35 per piercing for most piercings) plus the cost of jewelry. Our standard jewelry is made of implant grade titanium and starts at $35. Like any jewelry store, we have a wide variety of jewelry that varies in price. The more intricate the jewelry is, the more expensive it will be. If you are getting a pair of piercings such as lobes or nipples, we offer a discount of $20 if you get both piercings at the same time.

What are your tattoo prices?

Our tattoo pricing is based on many variables including size, placement, detail, color, intricacy, etc. The best way to get an accurate price is to come in to the shop and speak with an artist or shop assistant. For simple, one session tattoos, we typically price by the piece. Our shop minimum for any tattoo is $80. For larger scale, custom tattoos, we typically price by the hour. Our minimum per hour pricing is $175/hour. However, some artists may charge more.

Why should I choose a professional piercer?

Choosing the right piercer is an important decision. Your piercer needs to have the appropriate knowledge to perform a safe and skillful piercing. Professional piercers understand and implement proper sterilization and aseptic techniques. They also have a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy (as it pertains to piercing). A professional piercer recognizes how placement and proper angles play an important role in how a piercing will heal. These factors are often overlooked by inexperienced piercers which can lead to rejection or improper healing. Our piercers are highly trained with years of experience. They stay up to date with the latest techniques and are devoted to continuing education as new skills and technologies are introduced to the piercing industry.

Can I come in for a consultation?

Of course! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is available to answer any questions you may have about tattoos, piercings and/or jewelry. Consultations are free of charge. You are also welcome to make an appointment for a free consultation by calling either location at the phone numbers listed below.

Will the type of jewelry affect my piercing?

Quality matters, and you deserve the best! That’s why we are dedicated to offering only the finest body jewelry. Our jewelry is designed to not only be beautiful, but safe. We use biocompatible materials, like implant grade titanium and nickel-free gold to ensure your piercing has the best chance of healing. We only use internally threaded or threadless jewelry, both having a smooth, high polish finish. Jewelry that has threads exposed on the outside of the post (the part of the jewelry that slides through the skin) can scrape and damage the internal tissue of the piercing. Because everyone’s anatomy is different, we carry a wide selection of sizes to ensure that our client’s jewelry has the proper fit. Once you pick out your jewelry, we use a rapid-cycle autoclave to sterilize your jewelry prior to getting your new piercing. All of these components are crucial in providing our clients with a safe and healthy piercing experience.
