As we work to accommodate clients during this global pandemic, and in keeping with the Baltimore and Philadelphia guidelines for personal services, appointments are now required at both our Philadelphia and Baltimore studios. Yes, for everything. This includes not only new piercings, but jewelry changes, removals, troubleshooting, consults—and even buying jewelry to-go will require an appointment.
We currently offer appointments every day from opening to closing and same day appointments are often available at one or both of our locations. Appointments are scheduled for 30-minute sessions, which includes time to do paperwork, choose jewelry, and have the piercing performed. Prices for services can be found on our Prices Page. Make sure you are able to bring in proper identification as outlined in ID Info and Policies.
Be aware the following are now required at our studios:
Masks will be required for entry, no exceptions. You will need a mask that fully covers your nose and mouth, and will need to keep it on at all times while inside.
Nostril and septum piercings appointments are available at our Baltimore location only. These services are not currently being offered at our Philadelphia location. This includes jewelry changes for nostril and septum piercings as well. Even when visiting us for one of these services, masks must still remain on at all times in the studio until directed by a staff member.
We are not currently offering any oral piercings and/or jewelry changes. This means piercing services or jewelry changes in or around the mouth at either studio.
We are offering kids’ ear piercing services for children eight to twelve years old at our Baltimore location only. We are still offering limited piercing services to clients thirteen years and older at our Philadelphia location. Check our ID Info page on our site for details.
No friends or partners at the Philadelphia studio. Exceptions will be made for parents or guardians bringing in minors for piercings, and clients will be allowed to bring back one person for nipple or genital piercings. Otherwise, we ask you to come to your appointment in Philadelphia by yourself. In Baltimore we have a little more space, so we can often accommodate an emotional support person in the waiting area—but we can’t safely accommodate large groups and still maintain social distancing requirements at the studio.
Requesting a specific piercer? Please call ahead to find out their schedule before booking your appointment. We will do our best to accommodate your request at your appointment.
Call ahead for genital piercings. Not all piercers have extensive experience with all genital piercings. (There are a lot of different piercings, and variations.) If you're booking for a vertical or horizontal hood piercing (VCH or HCH), Prince Albert, frenum, or scrotum piercing, no need to reach out—all of our piercers perform these piercings. For other genital piercings, give us a call ahead and make sure we can accommodate you on the date available.
Be on time! If you are more than five minutes late we may cancel your appointment. We also ask that you try to get here no more than five minutes early, as we may not have the space for you to wait inside the studio. Parking at both studios is street parking, so be sure to leave yourself enough time.
If you need to reschedule or cancel, we ask that you do so at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.
If you are feeling ill, please reschedule. This goes without saying.
