Your safety is something we take extremely seriously, which is why we hold ourselves to the highest health and safety standards. No needles are reused and everything is sterilized. For more information, please refer to our sterilization section.
Yes it does, but not that much or else we wouldn’t be doing so many of them in a day. The pain is comparable to banging your pinky toe on a cupboard. You might swear, but you’ll survive!
Yes we take appointment for piercings. Call us or check out our appointment section on the website.
We don’t apply numbing cream before a piercing since we are not doctors and we do not want to be held responsible if you have an allergic reaction to the cream. If you want to come get pierced, you can apply it yourself. Keep in mind that some people might have an allergic reaction to the cream.
Every piercing is done with a sterile needle in our studio. It is important for us since we closely follow the safety and sanity standards. For more information on piercing guns and why we do not use them, check out our section on piercing guns in the children piercing section.
Our piercing rate starts at 30$. You can consult our price list in the piercing information section.
No it doesn’t. We have a wide variety of jewelry for you to choose from, so the jewelry cost is separated from the piercing cost. Our minimum price for a surgical steel basic jewelry is 25$. As for implants (microdermal and skin diver), the price includes the complete jewelry with a Swarovski. Take a look of what we hold in store in our jewelry section.
Yes, we do. When you come in to get pierced, you will have to fill out a consent form before getting pierced. If you have any allergies or a sensitive skin, our piercers will ask proper questions so they can show you the best options available for you. We use surgical steel, implant grade titanium, niobium and 14-18k gold. For more jewelry option, please refer to our jewelry section.
We do every piercings (except genitals and nipple piercing) without a parent’s signature at 16 years old. It is in our rights to refuse to do a piercing depending on the situation. Take a look at our store’s policy concerning our piercings in the information section.
Every piercing has a different healing time and not everybody has the same immune system, so keep in mind that if your friend’s piercing took two months to heal, it doesn’t mean yours will be completely healed within this period of time. Please refer to our healing chart in the aftercare section for approximate period of time.
The scar tissue you feel might simply be the tunnel of your old piercing. If you pass by the studio, we’ll be able to tell you if we can simply re-open the existing tunnel. If it isn’t possible, we can probably re-pierce you in the same spot. However, it may pinch a little more and take a little more time to heal than the first time since the skin has already been damaged before. Please remember; if your body rejected the old piercing, chances are that it will reject it again.
Of course you can! You just have to keep in mind that the more the jewelry moves, the less good it is for the healing process. For example, if you get your navel pierced, doing sit-ups the next day might not be the best idea. Make sure you clean your piercing after any physical activity, especially if you sweat a lot! For more information, take a look at our healing process in the aftercare section.
Ideally, one should NOT submerge a new piercing underwater for at least the first two weeks. Water’s dirty and may contain bacteria prone to cause an infection and your piercing is an open wound: you wouldn’t want to take the risk of contracting an infection. After the first two weeks, keep in mind that your piercing isn’t fully healed, so if you do go swimming, make sure you dry it and clean if properly afterwards and keep an eye out for any signs of irritation or beginning of an infection.
Nipple piercings are safe and they hurt just as much as any other piercing would. You will be able to breastfeed, you simply have to take the jewelry out (you don’t want your child to accidentally swallow it). Your nipple won’t leak like a sprinkler!
No, you can’t, and we won’t. As a professional parlor, we will not put you nor your child at risk of contracting an infection. Even if the risks are very small, our professional insurances do not allow us to pierce you if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding.
Reason #1: A piercing is an open wound and it must heal properly. During the healing process, some people might develop an infection. It can be caused by a lack of precautions: exposing it to bacteria, dust, animal fur, etc. The infection can be inconvenient if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and need to take antibiotics to eliminate it.
Reason #2: The stress a piercing can cause may make you feel bad and eventually faint. We do not want you to feel any sort of discomfort if you are pregnant.
No, but we can recommend a professional that does this body modification.
As a professional studio, we do not do this piercing. This piercing is bound to be problematic for various reasons, but most commonly by damaging your teeth and your gums when the jewelry is “hitting” them. Your piercing might migrate as well, leaving a bad scar on your tongue as well as sticking two independent muscles together, which could result in lisping.
No, we do microdermals since they have a better lifetime expectancy. Surface piercings have a 75% chance of rejecting during the healing process.
Yes, we do them in our studio since they have proven to hold a lot better than surface piercings. Check out our information section for prices.
Yes, we can remove your microdermals for you. We charge between 20$ and 30$ for the material we use during the procedure.
Both microdermals and skin divers are implant piercings. The difference is located at the base of the jewelry: the microdermal has a little plate with small holes in it to let your skin attach itself on it. It avoids the jewelry to simply pop out and reduces the risk of rejecting it. It is also possible to change the diamond (top part) of your microdermal as it screws on the plate. Skin divers only has a round plate that doesn’t let your skin attach to it. Therefore, it is easier to pop out and fall off. If you want to change your jewelry, you must also take it out and redo it, meaning you’ll have to go through the healing process again as well.
If your piercing is freshly done, meaning that you got pierce at a bigger gauge, you must wait for it to be completely healed before stretching (2-3 months). Between each stretching, we recommend you wait two to three months to make sure you don’t traumatize your skin too much for its elasticity (if you want to go bigger or want them to close eventually). For more information, please check out our healing chart in the aftercare section.
No, we don’t. We suggest you stretch one size at a time if you ever want them to shrink back to a regular earring. If you are too impatient to get to a bigger size, we can recommend a professional that does this body modification.
A metal jewelry may prevent the doctors from seeing what they need to see since it will reflect in the scan’s results. We recommend you pass by the shop so we can insert a plastic retainer! That way you can be sure that your piercing won’t close, and it’ll be safe for the scans/x-rays/MRIs sessions.
Usually, an implant grade jewelry shouldn’t be a problem since they are non-magnetic, but some doctors may require you to take them out for precautions. If you are not sure about the quality of your jewelry, once again, pass by the studio so we can check it out with you.
Quality jewelry is non-ferromagnetic and will not set off a walk-through metal detector, but an hand-held wand is often more sensitive and frequently sets off when scanning directly over a metal jewelry. If the guards have any questions about it, you may have to show your jewelry. If this can be a problem for you, we sell non-metallic jewelry.
