Age requirements

Depending on the piercing, there are age restrictions for certain piercings, please call if you need info on a specific piercing.

Without exception, the parent or legal guardian must be present with the minor to sign the release form as well as in the room during the piercing. Each party must have a valid photo ID*. If the parent’s last name and/or address is different from the minor’s, there must be legal documentation to prove the relationship (Birth Certificate, Divorce papers, Adoption papers, Marriage Certificate). Court papers are required to prove a relationship with a legal guardian.

A valid photo ID is a Driver’s License, Passport, State-issued Identification Card or Military ID. A valid school photo ID and Birth Certificate with State Seal is acceptable for minors younger than driving age. Photocopies of any ID are not acceptable.
