How to I take care of my piercing?

The simplest way to take care of your piercing is an anti-bacterial soap and water with q-tips. 

You do not need anything else. 

For any type of oral piercing use a mouthwash to rinse after you drink, smoke and eat. 

Please clean your piercing at least 2-3 times a day. 

We provide you with an instruction sheet when you get pierced at Body Ritual. 

Do not follow recommendations made by your friends or other people, but follow the instruction sheet we give you. 

Can I get a tattoo price estimate over the phone?

Beware of shops that will give you a tattoo estimate over the phone! 

We need some facts in order to give you an estimate.

We need to see how big the tattoo is, how detailed, and how much color is in the tattoo. 

Because we are a professional tattoo shop, we do not provide estimates over the phone. 

Please come in and talk to our artists who will be glad to help you design your tattoo and lay it out properly. 

We do have a shop minimum of $50.

How can I prevent infection from piercing?

The jewelry that we use in a new piercing is surgical stainless steel and will not itself cause an infection. An infection is caused by playing with or touching youyr piercing with dirty hands. You should only touch your piercing when cleaning it.

How old do you have to be to get your belly button pierced with a parent present?

The minimum piercing age is 16. Also you must have a birth certificate (along with a picture ID), a parent (or legal guardian) must be present (and also have a picture ID), and no dermal, surface or genital piercings can be done.
