PIERCING FAQ


*At what age can I be pierced?

In NSW you must be 16 years of age to be pierced or 18 years for genital piercings including nipple piercings. If you are under age for a genital piercing you must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with supporting identification for both you and them.

*Is aftercare important?

Absolutely! A proper aftercare routine is essential to any piercing. Fresh and healing piercings must be cleaned twice a day with either saline or antibacterial soaks and are not to be touched, turned or played with by your hands or others. Swimming in clean salt or fresh water like the beach is fine but swimming in chlorinated pools is not recommended during the healing period.

*Is there anything I should know BEFORE getting pierced?

It is recommended you eat at least four hours prior to receiving a piercing and ideal that you have not consumed alcohol. We unfortunately cannot pierce anyone who has not eaten prior, is visibly intoxicated, pregnant or breast feeding, unwell or taking blood thinning medication.

*Can I bring in my own jewellery to be pierced with?

Unfortunately no unless we can assure the quality of the jewellery as well as if it is sterilised, we will only pierce with our own jewellery.
