Our piercings break down like this: it's the cost of the jewelry (from $25 on up and retainers start at $15) plus a $35 piercing fee. Some piercings like genital piercings or higher difficulty piercings may require additional cost. Ear lobe piercings are discounted (as are multiple piercings of same gauge) to help promote safer piercing and piercing experiences instead of being subjected to using harmful piercing guns. If the piercing you crave requires additional cost, you will be informed at time of the procedure. Why does it cost so much? The reason it costs so much is because we use nothing but the best jewelry for your body. We also guarantee all our procedures and jewelry! So, if in 5 years your piercings start causing you problems, come back and see us. We will not turn you away without trying to help. In addition, all of our jewelry comes from the finest jewelry manufacturers, so if a gem falls out of the end of your jewelry, we will replace it free of charge (we do not cover lost ends).
We also take extreme pride in our sterilization and aseptic techniques. We sterilize everything right in front of you using our Statim 2000 autoclave. You are in the room and see that everything goes in, a successful sterilization cycle ensues, and that everything used during the procedure, with the exception of liquids (i.e. surgical scrub and gentian violet), go through the sterilization process. A sterilization indicator strip is also in the Statim cassette to show that the items inside hit the right temperature and pressure to remove all living organisms within the chamber. We only use single use needles! You are the first and last to use that needle and we discard it in front of you into the sharps container.
