The use of over-the-counter topical anesthetic creams or gels is not necessary for body piercings. As with injectable agents, there is potential for allergic reactions. A prescription-strength topical anesthetic is illegal unless prescribed by a licensed medical professional.
These may induce localized tissue edema (swelling), alter skin texture, and affect accurate piercing placement. These effects make the piercing procedure more challenging for the piercer to perform. It is difficult to be sure of the ultimate appearance of a piercing when region is adulterated or distorted. The tissue will resume its normal shape and texture gradually as the effects of the product are diminished.
Ethyl Chloride is a prescription-only freezing spray and its use can result in frostbite damage, which can complicate and delay healing. It is quite painful to have applied, and takes much longer to administer than a simple piercing. Ice is another method of superficial freezing. It may result in tissue damage, like ethyl chloride. All of the complications related to ethyl chloride also apply to ice.
We do not allow additional guests in the piercing area due to liability concerns. This means you cannot bring a friend, significant other or child with you to your appointment. Access is however permitted to translators and parents/legal guardians for minors.
most medical conditions and medications will not prevent you from being pierced, however we may need to tailor your aftercare advice or warn you of healing complications so that you can make and informed decision. Any information provided will be kept strictly confidential. In some rare cases we may ask you to provide a doctors note confirming that you condition does not put you at risk. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Piercings cannot be performed while you are pregnant or breastfeeding due to the risk of infection.
We suggest waiting at least 6 months from the time you have ceased breastfeeding to have your nipples pierced. This will allow the nipple time to stabilize as breastfeeding can change the size and shape of your nipple.
We recommend waiting 6 months postpartum before having any new piercings performed, this is regardless of whether or not you have chosen to breastfeed.
In the event that you have suffered a miscarriage please give yourself a minimum of 6 months for your body to recover.
*If you have suffered a miscarriage before 24 weeks and/or have not been through the birthing process you may still have pregnancy hormones in your body for up to 2 months. We recommend waiting 3 months before getting any new piercings to allow your hormonal balance to stabilize.
If you have undergone an outpatient termination of up to 10 weeks please wait either 2 months or until your next period (whichever comes first) to be pierced. If you have undergone an inpatient surgical termination our recommendation is to wait 3 months before getting any new piercings.
