PIERCING FAQ

How are we affected by COVID regulations? 

current COVID regulations prohibit any piercings in the mask area. this includes nose, lips, tongue, septum, cheeks. Also prohibited is the performance of any tattoo or piercing on anyone under 15 years old.  This is a state mandate. Any other shops in the state of Louisiana performing these procedures at this time are doing so in violation of the state mandates. 

Do we pierce minors?

ordinarily, yes! minors may be pierced with parent / guardian's consent. you will need a photo i.d. for the minor (drivers license, passport, school id, even a school yearbook will do! - something that shows their photo and their name), a photo id for the parent or guardian, and either a birth certificate or custody papers connecting the parent and child!

Our piercers may also consent to minor ear piercings as young as 4 or 5 years old - this is at the discretion of the piercer and may require a conversation between the piercer and the minor to be pierced prior to the procedure. 
HOWEVER - we are currently prohibited from piercing anyone under the age of 15 due to current covid regulations.
