I'm bringing my child to get pierced. What identification is needed?
All minors must show valid photo ID AND ALSO show proof that the adult with them is legally able to consent for them. The adult will need to show one of the forms of identification in the first group. The only acceptable forms of ID are as follows:
Bring one of the following:
Bring one of the following:
- Identification Card (ex. WI State ID) *school ID cards will NOT be accepted
- Driver's License
- Birth Certificate
- Legal Guardianship Papers
How old do you need to be to get pierced?
The Wisconsin law states that clients must be at least 16-years-old WITH parent or legal guardian consent to get pierced.
- This age requirement excludes ear lobe piercings. We CAN pierce earlobes on consenting children 6-years-old and above.
- This age requirement does not apply to nipple or genital piercings. We will not pierce nipples on minors, and do not perform any genital piercings in the studio regardless of age.
My 15-year-old wants a piercing. Can you do that?
We can do earlobe piercings on 15-year-olds, but according to Wisconsin state law, we can ONLY do earlobe piercings on those younger than 16-years-old, even with parental consent.
Do I need an appointment?
You'll need an appointment for all services, even shopping. You can book your appointment by clicking here.
My child does not have one of the photo ID requirements listed. What do I do?
We will not perform any procedures on those without ID. You can take your child to the DMV to get an identification card, or get them a passport.
Can I bring in my own jewelry?
Unfortunately, unless we are able to verify the quality of the jewelry (such as with mill certificates) we cannot use outside jewelry.
Do you pierce babies?
We do not pierce babies. There are ethical and safety concerns with piercing babies. Babies are unable to consent, so it would be unethical to perform a cosmetic procedure on them. They are also unable to talk, so if there are troubles healing they will not be able to communicate that. Babies also do not understand hygiene, so this can imply they would be more susceptible to infection (think hand in diaper, then hand on ears). Their ears are also still growing so there is a good chance that, if pierced now, the holes will not be even once their ears are fully grown. Earrings can also be a choking hazard.
What kind of jewelry do you use?
Our jewelry is either internally threaded or threadless, and rings fall into the categories of captive, fixed bead, seam or hinged styles. The materials we use are ASTM F-136 or F-1295 Titanium, Niobium and solid 14k or 18k gold, with white gold being palladium based. All jewelry is polished to a mirror finish and sterilized before insertion.
I have permission from the parent to bring their child in to get pierced. Is that alright?
How do I order jewelry?
You will want to schedule an appointment for curating, and then we can get measurements and go over design options. You will pre-pay for all jewelry when ordering. You can also click here to buy jewelry online if you already know the items & sizes you need.
Can I go swimming with my new piercing?
NO! Submerging an open wound into bodies of water (pools, hot tubs, lakes, oceans, etc) puts you at risk for infection!
