Your piercing shop questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a piercing cost at a shop?

The cost for piercing depends on the body part you're getting pierced and the jewelry you select:

  • Nose piercing costs $50 to $100, including the cost of jewelry.
  • Septum piercing costs $50 to $100, including the cost of jewelry.
  • Ear piercing costs $40 to $75 + the cost of jewelry for both ears. Some piercing shops charge $20 to $35 for each earlobe for clients who only want one ear pierced.
  • Belly button / navel piercing costs $50 to $100, including the cost of jewelry.
  • Eyebrow piercing costs $40 to $75 + the cost of jewelry.
  • Tongue piercing costs $40 to $80, including basic jewelry.

Does the piercing fee include jewelry?

No, the piercing fee is separate from the jewelry cost. Jewelry prices vary significantly depending on the type, style, and metal you choose.

Can I bring my own jewelry to a piercing shop?

No, you can't bring your own jewelry to a piercing shop. Reputable shops will not use jewelry brought in by a client because they can't verify it meets ASTM or ISO qualifications for implant-grade materials.

Licensed piercers are required by law to maintain records of the manufacturer and metal certification for every piece of jewelry used in a piercing. This ensures every piece of jewerly in the shop is safe to use for piercing and won't harm your health.

Can piercing shops change jewelry?

Yes, piercing shops can change jewelry. Most professional piercers will change your jewelry for a small fee, usually around $5.

Do you tip your piercer?

Yes, you should tip a piercing artist 20% to 25% of the total cost of the piercing and jewelry if you had a great experience, or 10% to 15% if the experience was less than stellar.

If you had a good experience, post a positive review online. Consider sharing photos on social media and tagging the piercing shop and the piercer.

What are the requirements for piercing babies or other minors?

Reputable piercing shops will only provide piercing for minors if a parent or guardian is present and both the parent/guardian and the minor have government-issued photo idea. The parent/guardian must also present an original birth certificate, adoption papers, or guardianship papers showing their name and the minor's name.

How do I choose the best piercing shop near me?

Follow these guidelines to help you choose the top piercing shop in your area:

  • Ask for recommendations from friends and family.
  • Read reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Look for piercers who are members of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP).
  • Visit the shop to confirm it is clean and sanitary and the staff is professional.
  • Avoid franchise piercing shops located in shopping malls.

What questions should I ask piercing shops?

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed?
  • Are you a member of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP)?
  • Have you done this type of piercing before?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • What safety measures do you take?
