Checkups & Consults
We offer services to check on existing piercings and to discuss future options with our piercers.
Prepaid Jewelry Pickup (15 minute window, $15 no-show fee) Have you already purchased jewelry and need to arrange a time to pick it up? Book this service to do that. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or browse our selection on our web store to complete your purchase. You must arrive at the studio within your 15 minute pickup window to ensure availability and to
Browse & Purchase Jewelry (10 minutes, $15 minimum purchase)
Book this appointment to secure time to browse our in-stock jewelry and take it to go. This does not include time to install jewelry!
Appointments are *REQUIRED* to browse or purchase jewelry in the studio. Buying jewelry is not self service. At minimum, an employee/piercer has to be available to get your jewelry out of backstock and sterilize it, which takes at least 8-10 minutes. Jewelry is not one-size-fits-all. Some piercings have over a dozen common sizes. That means you need to know exactly what size you need (both gauge and length), we need to have a purchase on file in the last 5 or so years, OR a piercer needs to be available to assist you with sizing. We also need to have time available at the jewelry counter for you to look at our displays. If another appointment is already scheduled, someone else will be occupying the counter.
Drop-off Jewelry for Reprocessing (2 hour window, $20 for up to 4 pieces of jewelry)
Clean and sterilize previously worn jewelry for a new piercing or other installation. Jewelry must be from Piercing Experience and only worn by person receiving service. This covers up to 4 individual pieces of jewelry. Most jewelry will break down into 2-3 “pieces” (eg threadless jewelry is 2 – post/top, threaded bars are 3 – 2 ends/post). Jewelry needs to be dropped off at least 2 days before piercing/install, in a sealed baggie/waterproof container. We have 3 drop-off windows available per day, 12-2p, 2-4p, 4-6p.
Piercing Experience Checkup(15 minutes, $15 no-show fee)
This service allows you to book your follow-up/checkup appointment for a piercing performed by our piercers at Piercing Experience. We generally do not charge for this service but will charge a $15 fee if you do not come in for your appointment. Any jewelry or supplies required are a separate charge.
Other Checkup(30 minutes, $30)
This service provides a checkup/consultation with one of our piercers for a piercing done at another studio. This provides time to have your piercing evaluated by our piercers and to have any necessary jewelry changes. Any jewelry or other supplies required are separate charges.
Jewelry Change(30 minutes, $30)
Book this service to get professional assistance changing jewelry in an existing, healed piercing. Jewelry must be purchased at Piercing Experience. This fee covers the service for installing jewelry in up to 3 piercings. More piercings require an additional appointment. Please see our policies regarding previously worn jewelry. Services under the mask (nostril, septum, lip, or tongue piercings) require proof of vaccination.
