What To Expect
Thanks for Scheduling an appointment!
We love what we do and we love our customers! Since we run our studio a bit differently than you may have experienced in the past, we want to give you a little information about the way we do things, so you can decide if our studio is the right fit for you. Please take a moment to read the information below before your appointment.
Our goal is to create a comfortable atmosphere where everyone gets the time and attention they expect and deserve.
about Our Studio
Things You Should KNow Before Visiting us:
We offer appointments to avoid long wait times, but you will not be pierced at your appointment time. Choosing jewelry, doing paperwork, set-up and sterilization takes time. Please take a look at our average appointment times below so you can plan accordingly.
Time to choose jewelry is built into your appointment time. Arriving early to choose jewelry is not necessary and it is often not possible for us to help you ahead of your appointment time, as we will be busy helping the people who had the appointment before yours.
We will not rush the person before you, nor will we rush you. Sometimes there are little complications, such as someone feeling lightheaded and needing a few extra minutes before getting up after their piercing. In these cases, the appointments after may have to wait a few extra minutes. If someone needs a little extra time to ask questions, look at jewelry, or decide on the placement of their new piercing, we will do our best to be accommodating. We don't want anyone to feel rushed.
People may not be helped in the order they arrive and someone may be helped ahead of you. Our scheduling is not only based on time, but also what someone needs help with. Someone with a simple jewelry change or check-up may be helped while the jewelry and supplies for your piercing are being set-up and sterilized.
Arriving early, having your own jewelry, or picking jewelry very quickly will not speed up your appointment. Those circumstances don't shorten the time it takes to complete the appointments scheduled around yours, therefore will not speed up your appointment.
Arriving late may result in needing to reschedule. We understand life happens! Giving us a call is very helpful, if you are running late. Depending on our appointment schedule for the day, we may help someone ahead of you or need to reschedule your appointment.
Average Appointment Duration
Expect to be with us for about an hour from your appointment time. Getting your piercing only takes a few moments, but the whole process, from when you come in, to when you check out can take around an hour. If you are in a hurry, please let us know and we'll do our best to get you in and out as quickly as we can, however that is not always possible.
Jewelry Changes and Check-ups:
Expect to be with us for about 30 minutes from your appointment time. Jewelry changes and check-ups are scheduled so that we can assist you in-between piercing appointments. Sometimes we can easily answer a question or look at a piercing and it only takes a few moments, other times a little more time is necessary to assist you. We will do our best to get you in and out quickly.
