Piercing Appointment Terms & Conditions
[updated September 2022]
NOSTRIL AND SEPTUM PIERCING PROTOCOL
Masks must be worn inside the shop and piercing room at all times until directed by your piercer.
When asked to pull down your mask, it must still cover your mouth completely and remain on. After the piercing is complete (and you have seen it in the mirror of course!) you will be asked to pull your mask back up over your nose before leaving the piercing room. This is to limit potential exposure to the piercers and staff. We want to do the best we can to guarantee everyone's health and safety.
If you are unable to comply with these terms while in the store we will be unable to provide the service and the piercing fee is forfeit.
APPOINTMENTS MUST BE MADE OVER THE PHONE.
We do not make appointments via email. If you would like to schedule a piercing appointment, please call 617-491-4335 during business hours (12pm-7pm). Payment is due in order to make an appointment for a piercing or jewelry changing/consultation. Due to an extremely high call volume you may be placed on hold for some time (if you are asked to leave a voicemail please just hang up and dial again, we actually do not have a voicemail set up. We have no way of checking it). Please remain on hold to book an appointment, this will keep you in the call line que. We only have one phone and one phone line to make/book appointments. This is the only way to book with us for all services.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Currently we are booking 1 month out for Owen & Grey.
More information about Owen's booking process: 1 week before the month ends we open a full month of available appointments for Owen. There is an especially high demand for earlobe piercing for children with our piercer Owen. The average time for children/minor earlobe piercings are 30 minutes. There are a limited number of children's appointments available each week.
More Information about Grey's booking process: they open their books for each month 2 weeks prior to the months start date.
You may cancel your appointment with 48 hours notice. You will be refunded your piercing/changing fee but we have to keep the cancellation fee. You may reschedule your appointment with 24 hours notice at no additional cost. Any cancellation or rescheduling the day of the appointment will result in forfeiture of the piercing/changing fee and the cancellation fee.
Cancellation/rescheduling must be done over the phone.
Check in time is 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. If you do not show up or if you are late, you will not be pierced and we will keep your piercing fee.
You MUST be 18 years of age with a valid government issued photo ID present to be pierced without parental consent. If you do not bring an valid government issued photo ID with you, we cannot perform the piercing and you will forfeit your piercing and cancellation fees.
We do not accept student IDs as valid form of identification.

Some piercings can be done on minors, but not all of them.
Our piercer Owen is the only piercer at our shop who can perform these services.
Minors that are 16 years of age and up can get the following piercings if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, with proper identification: ear lobe, nostril, navel, eyebrow and outer ear cartilage(helix).
Ear cartilage (Helix only) can be done on minors age 14 and up. As with all piercings for minors, parent/legal guardian must be present with government issued photo ID for BOTH the guardian AND the minor as well as proof of guardianship (i.e. birth certificate).
Earlobe piercings can be done on children ages 5 and up with government issued photo ID for the parent/legal guardian and birth certificate of the child. If you have any questions about required identification for piercing feel free to call the shop at (617) 491-4335.
