FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your age requirements for piercings?

-Anyone 15 years or older may receive facial, ear, and navel piercings.

-We currently pierce lobes on children 6 and older.

-Genital piercings reserved for clients 30 and older.

-We will NOT pierce any under the age of 6 until further notice.

What do I need to bring with me?

Anyone 18 and older must have a VALID STATE-ISSUED I.D. This can be either a driver's license, or a state-issued identification card (can be obtained at your local DMV).

Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian present for the entire process of their piercing. The parent/guardian of the piercee must have valid identification; the parent must have a valid state-issued identification card.

Can someone who isn't my parent or guardian sign for me?

No.

Consent for any procedure must be given by a parent or guardian. Guardians must have proof of guardianship. No older sisters or brothers signing. No exceptions.

Can I bring my own jewelry to be pierced with?

No.
I can't guarantee your piercing will heal with jewelry I haven't chosen. I choose my jewelry based on your personal anatomy, material, grade, and how quickly and well you will heal. We'll use either a medical grade steel, or more than likely, implant-grade titanium.

Can you order me a piece of jewelry?

You can order your own jewelry via our shop (holeytruth.com/shop). If you are looking for something else, send us a message, and we'll try to locate it for you. 

How many people can I bring with me?

You may have TWO guests accompany you.

Anyone else in your party must wait OUTSIDE the building during your piercing.

Do you do any piercings with guns?

Never. They're actually much less safe and accurate than my freehand technique, and far more painful.

Can I bring my child with for my piercing?

It is in poor taste to bring a small child to a professional environment.

Do daith piercings cure migraines?

There is NO clinical proof that ANY piercings cure ANYTHING.

Do you perform 'snake eyes', 'venom', or any other stupid tongue piercings?

We do not perform any stupid horizontal tongue piercings at all. They're unsafe.

Should I wear a mask?

You do not need to wear a mask, but wearing a mask is appreciated.

I always have, and will, wear a mask to do piercings and other work on my clients.

I lost a ball. What do I do?

See me for a free replacement. Do not borrow a friend's or use a cheap replacement.

You did my piercing, and I tried to change it or it fell out. I can't get it back in! What should I do?

I'm sorry, but without regular maintenance, or changing your jewelry before it is completely healed, this can happen! Don't change your jewelry early, and make sure it is secure regularly!  MISMANAGING YOUR PIERCING CAN MEAN LOSING IT. BE PATIENT.  See me ASAP, I may be able to salvage the piercing.

How much do your piercings cost?

Our most up-to-date piercing price list can be found HERE.

What if I'm unhappy?

If you feel like the placement of your piercing is incorrect, you must notify us before leaving the shop. If you do, we'll remove the piercing, and there will be no fee. We can try again at a later date, at a discount.

Not everyone heals or reacts to piercings the same way. Using our methods (safe, sterile) we can only provide a good foundation for your body to heal the piercing; the rest is in your hands. Irritation bumps, loss of jewelry pieces, wearing non-approved jewelry, are all NOT reasons for refund.

Do you do genital piercing?

Yes, I do. I have certain requirements other than the standard age requirement you see at shops.
In an attempt to maintain a safe and professional environment, I only perform genital piercings on clients 30 years of age and older, who have been pierced by me previously. This is honestly, more than anything, in order to avoid immature clients and people who don't respect or understand the type of business Holey Truth has developed into... The business that you walk into for your piercing is a professional one that prides itself on being a safe place for ALL of our clients. When you enter, someone will ask you what you'd like done. Please answer and behave the same way you would at a medical clinic. Making strange or immature remarks or actions any time during your visit will have your piercing session ended immediately and you will be removed from the shop.

And, if my policy offends or does not accommodate you, there are other piercers out there who will take your genital piercings and their job less seriously. :D
