Frequently Asked Questions
Updated: Mar 9, 2022
How much do your piercings cost?
Most piercings start at $30 with basic jewelry. Some exceptions are Industrials, which start at $35, Paired Nostrils, Forward Facing Nostrils, and High Nostrils which start at $70 for the pair, Dermals which start at $40, and Genitals which start at $60. All piercings have the option to upgrade the jewelry, so your final price will depend on jewelry choice.
How can I make an appointment?
The easiest way is to use the Book Now buttons on this site. If you are unable to do that you can message me here or text me at 980 428 9360. You can also call the shop I work out of, The House of Ink, at 704 289 4465 on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 2-5 but we are a very busy shop, and getting through might be difficult at times.
What are your age and ID requirements?
18 and up with a government issued photo ID or 13 and up with a parent or legal guardian present to sign the consent form. 5 and up for earlobes. The minor must have an ID or Birth certificate and the parent must have a government issued ID. The addresses on the IDs must match or the parents name must be on the birth certificate. Legal guardianship must have court documents proving guardianship. Sisters, cousins, grandparents, aunts, best friend's moms, etc can not sign unless they are the legal guardian. Just living with someone does not make them a legal guardian. Minors can not get nipple or genital piercings even with a parent's consent.
Do you take Walk Ins?
I will if I have time, but it is never guaranteed I will have time if I am booked for the day, and the wait time can be long as appointments will always be taken first. I do my very best to get to everyone but I am only human and can only do so much. Also I do not always work specific hours, if I don't have any appointments I am not guaranteed to be in the shop, so making an appointment will be the best way to ensure you get a spot and minimize your wait time.
Do you carry aftercare products?
Yes, I carry NeilMed Piercing Aftercare?Spray. After much research and many trials with my own piercings this is the brand I've come to trust the most.
Do you pierce baby earlobes?
I'm sorry but I don't pierce earlobes for anyone under 5 and they have to be able to use their specific form of communication to express their desire to get the piercing.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept all major debit and credit cards, Apple pay and Gpay through Square, which allows for tap to pay, and cash. I no longer accept Venmo or Cashapp.
Are there piercings you don't do?
I will not do any piercings that are unsafe or ill suited to your anatomy and will not successfully heal. I never do horizontal/surface tongue or lip piercings, hand or foot piercings or dermals, lip or tongue webbing, gums, cheeks, eyelids, or any other experimental or unsafe piercings.
Can my friends come watch me get pierced?
Of course! You can bring 1 person into the room with you for moral support provided they can watch quietly so as not to cause a distractions and do not touch anything. Children under 10 are not allowed in the piercing room unless they are the ones receiving the piercing or jewelry service. Please bring someone with you to watch your young children while they waiting the lobby.
Can I record?
You are welcome to take photos of the before and after but phones must be put away during the piercing procedure as they are very distracting to both piercing artist and client. We appreciate your cooperation in helping maintain a safer environment for everyone.
Is your space accessible?
Our shop and restroom are wheelchair accessible. If you require other accommodations please don't hesitate to contact me and I am happy to work with you to make my services accessible.
