“How old do I have to be pierced ?”
WITHOUT parental consent you must be 18 years of age or older. WITH parental consent you must be 15 years of age or older. If you’re underage, both you and one of your parents need to provide a valid state or federal-issued photo ID with matching last name AND address (school ID’s are not acceptable). If for some reason either of those things don’t match we need a state/federal issued form explaining the difference (ex: birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree) Please note, any of those forms do NOT replace the need for either of the ID’s. Acceptable forms of ID include a valid state ID card, a drivers license, a drivers permit (hard copy) a passport or military ID.

“Do you pierce earlobes for kids under 15?”
Is your child under 15 and asking to have their ears pierced? Once you’ve both decided you believe the time is right take a look at our guidelines below. If you believe the guidelines can be met then give the location you’d like to visit a call! We will schedule you a consult with a piercer and if our piercer deems it successful they will set an appointment for the piercing for before or after shop hours.
Piercing guidelines for children ages 5 to 15
– The child understands what is going to happen and wants to have their ears pierced
– The child can communicate and interact well with our piercer and staff without coaxing or bribery
– The child feels reasonably comfortable in the shop and isn’t glued to mom or dad
What is the difference between externally threaded jewelry and the internally threaded jewelry that’s used at Wingnut Tattoo?
Here is a fine example of the quality of the internally threaded jewelry we carry compared to lower quality externally threaded pieces out there. We pride ourselves on carrying ONLY internally threaded (left side of the photo), as you can clearly see using this provides our clients with far more comfort when their jewelry is inserted, along with a high polished mirror finish on every single piece we carry. We care about our clients and their health so we make sure to take every step necessary to only carry the best.
My ears seem to be really sensitive to the jewelry I’ve worn in the past, can I wear jewelry from Wingnut Tattoo?
Typically the jewelry you’ll find in malls and boutiques contains a large amount of nickel. At Wingnut Tattoo we use titanium or solid 14-karat white, yellow, or rose gold, this should prevent your ears from jewelry irritation. If you’re concerned with what jewelry is right for you swing into the nearest location and ask to speak with a piercer
