Before getting a piercing

We understand that getting a piercing can be exciting, so we want to make sure that you’re well-prepared!

Firstly: a piercing, no matter how simple it may seem, is not something you can go ‘get’ and be done with. It’s important to realize that you are actively altering the state of your body and that both you and your body need time adjusting to the new situation. Whether it’s not being able to wear high-waisted trousers after getting your navel pierced or having to cancel your sauna dates for the next few weeks – a piercing might have a bigger impact on your day to day life than you anticipated. That’s why it’s a good idea to consider whether your current lifestyle can accommodate the care for a fresh piercing. We’re more that happy to assist you with any questions you might have about this topic!

Of course there is also a more practical side to preparing for a piercing. Below are just a few tips on how to make your piercing experience at our studio as comfortable as possible:

• Make sure you eat something beforehand, preferably no more than four hours before you plan to get pierced
• Don’t drink or do drugs in the 24 hours leading up to your piercing
• Do not self-administer any numbing products or medication
• Sleep well the night before
• Choose your clothing wisely. Nothing too tight or synthetic around the piercing, but also something you feel comfortable in!
• Be mindful of your personal hygiëne and health
• Please do not bring large groups of friends. It’s an exciting event, but it’s really important that your main focus lies with what the piercer has to say. The piercer has the final say if and how many friends can accompany you into the piercing area and we ask you to respect their decision
• Do not film or take pictures unless you have discussed this with the piercer first.
• Be open to the piercer! The success of your piercing depends on the knowledge your piercer has about your situation. Are you on medication? Do you have a medical condition? These are important things for your piercer to know!
• We cannot pierce you if you are pregnant or nursing

Age info

We feel that it’s very important to give every client and every piercing the best chance at healing. The following age limitations have been set up based on our experience and on our moral convictions.

Under 16 years: Lobes only, parent or guardian must be present. Both need proof of ID.
16 – 18 years: All piercings with the exception of nipples and genital piercings. Parent or guardian must be present, both need proof of ID.
18 years and over: All piercings, no parent or guardian must be present. Proof of ID can be asked if there is doubt about the age of the client.

Aftercare

Aftercare plays an extremely important, but often underestimated part in the successful healing of a piercing. That’s why it’s important that you listen carefully to your piercer and follow the instructions they give you after the procedure.
If you have forgotten (part of) the instructions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Below are links to our aftercare sheets in Dutch and English.

Pricing

The prices stated are piercing fee only which means that the price of jewelry is not included. This is because we have an extensive collection of beautiful pieces with very different prices and we want to avoid confusion!
Our piercer or counter staff will be able to give you a total price quote after you’ve made your pick and we always communicate the total before starting the piercing procedure. Please note that we are cash only!

Piercing Prices

It’s also important to note that we cannot refund or exchange any jewelry pieces that have been worn due to the personal nature of the product. That is why, for hygiene reasons, all sales are final.
