Jewelry is at an additional cost. Jewelry can range from $10 all the way up to hundreds of dollars, depending on what you may like.
WHY IS YOUR JEWELRY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER SHOPS IN YOUR AREA?
Unfortunately, Idaho is an unregulated state when it comes to the safety and standards of body modification. We DO NOT have health inspectors or any kind of agency that makes sure tattoo and piercing studios are up to code/safe. Because of this, many studios in Idaho use less than sub par products and practices. The majority of studios offer very cheap jewelry that's produced over seas in countries that do not have standards such as the ASTM standard America has. We only use ASTM rated jewelry that is produced in the USA. If your jewelry is sourced from China, it is NOT implant grade, and should not be used for initial piercings. Don't hesitate to ask other studios where your jewelry is manufactured!
WHAT KIND OF JEWELRY DO YOU PIERCE WITH?
We use ASTM F-136 implant grade titanium, 14kt/18kt gold, niobium, glass and stone for initial piercings. All of our jewelry is internally threaded or threadless, that is produced in the USA with a mirror finish and hand set stones, set by actual jewelers. Everything we offer has a lifetime guarantee. We proudly do not use externally threaded or mystery metal jewelry, which should never be used in an initial piercing, that is commonly found in most studios in East Idaho.
HOW OLD DO YOU PIERCE EAR LOBES?
Ear lobe piercings can be performed on someone who is at least 8 years of age or older. We do not pierce baby's or infants.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO HAVE ANYTHING BUT YOUR EAR LOBES PIERCED?
Per Idaho law, you must be at least 14 years of age or older to have anything but your ear lobes pierced.
CAN I BRING MY OWN JEWELRY?
Typically not. Being members of the Association of Professional Piercers, we do have very strict jewelry standards for initial piercings. You're more than welcome to bring your jewelry, and we can inspect it. But most of the time, jewelry from outside the studio is not up to our standard.
CAN I CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY?
Absolutely! We love making sure our customers get exactly what they want. The options are endless! We only require 50% of the jewelry cost down to order. Schedule an online consultation here!
DO YOU OFFER GENITAL PIERCINGS?
We do not. Visit www.safepiercing.org to find a quality piercer who may offer these piercings.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
We do not take appointments over the phone. Appointments must be made online, as we do require a credit card on file. If you do not have a credit card, you can place a cash deposit down in the studio for an appointment. To see our schedule or to make an appointment, click here.
