FAQ

  • What do I need to get a piercing if I am a minor?

For any piercing of a minor, a parent or legal guardian must be present to sign a consent form. Proof positive, state issued photo identification is required from the legal guardian, and a bona fide form of identification from the minor. In the event the parent has a different last name and/or address from the child, court documentation is needed to prove the relationship, i.e., divorce papers, or a remarriage certificate. Under no circumstances is it acceptable or appropriate for a piercer to perform piercing on the nipples or genitals of an individual under 18 years of age. We also will not pierce any child unable to give consent for the piercing of their own volition.

  • Can I bring my own jewelry to be pierced with?

Unfortunately to verify that a piece of jewelry is safe to pierce with it must come from one of our reputable suppliers. Our supplied jewelry is titanium, a hypoallergenic medical grade alloy, which is sterilized before order and upon arrival at our shop to ensure surgical level care in your new piercing. As a result, our piercer is happy to change out healed piercings with pre-purchased jewelry for a $10 fee.

  • Is anyone suitable for any piercing?

The piercing artist will speak with you and check anatomy to verify that you can safely carry the piercing in question.

  • Do you use a piercing gun or a needle?

Our piercing artists only work with needles. We consider it unsafe practice to perform any procedure that places vulnerable tissue in contact with either non-sterile equipment or jewelry that is not considered medically safe for long-term internal wear. Such procedures place the health of recipients at an unacceptable risk. For this reason, Blue Siren Tattoos does not use reusable ear piercing guns for any type of piercing procedure. While piercing guns may seem to be a quick, easy and convenient way of creating holes, they have major drawbacks in terms of sterility, tissue damage and inappropriate jewelry design.

  • How bad does getting pierced hurt?

Piercing pain varies from location to location and from person to person, making that a difficult question. Overall, if your pain tolerance is on the low side, make sure to let your piercer know, so they can help accommodate for you as best as possible.

  • I have frequent fainting spells and/or bleed heavily, what should I do?

During your piercing appointment, our waiver covers any conditions that may make piercing difficult for either you or your piercer. Read the waiver thoroughly and notify your piercer of any conditions or concerns you have to help prepare for you appropriately.

Piercing Aftercare:

The following aftercare instruction consists of our own experience, our clients experience, advice of other professionals and, while we are not currently members, the aftercare guidelines of the APP. (Association of piercing professionals)


  • Do not touch your new piercing unless you are cleaning it. There is no need to rotate your new piercing.

  • ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE AND AFTER YOU TOUCH YOUR PIERCING.

  • Clean once to twice a day with mild, unscented, antibacterial soap or a pre-packaged sterile saline solution.

*put a small amount on your fingertips and work around the piercing. Try to avoid q-tips/cloths as they can get snagged on your new piercing. Rinse the area and ensure no soap is left on the skin.*

  • You may also use packaged sterile saline solution (read label) such as H2OCEAN or “Wound Wash” multiple times a day.

  • Do not remove your jewelry during the healing process as your body will immediately begin to close the hole. If you need to remove for a medical procedure or any reason, consult with a piercer about the options for jewelry.

  • Avoid pools, hot tubs, lakes, beaches etc. during the healing process as they contain a great deal of bacteria or chemicals. If you opt to swim, flush out and clean the piercing afterwards, but please avoid sand, oil, lotion, excessive sun, etc. When possible, a watertight patch may be used to seal off your piercing.

  • Be careful of all contact with possible irritants such as phones, pillows, hair, cosmetics, combs, brushes, towels, pet hair, and remember to change your sheets and pillowcases frequently.

  • NEVER USE alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, Bactine, Neosporin, and strong soaps such as dial as they can be very harsh for a new piercing and do more harm than good.


The healthier you are, the faster you will heal. Sleep well, drink lots of water, take multi-vitamins, and exercise. Take care of it and you will soon have a lovely healed piercing!

Every piercing and every person’s healing time is different, but most take between 2-6 months to fully heal. Let your body be the guide on this and don’t rush it.
