Cold Steel America Body Piercing and Tattoo
PIERCING POLICIES

We require that piercing clients not have had drugs or alcohol 8 hours prior to the procedure and request that they have eaten a meal within 4 hours prior to a piercing. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of both client and piercer, as well as the healing of the piercing. We pierce those 18+ with valid photo ID, and minors with parental consent and corresponding IDs. We need the ID every time you need any procedure performed, even if you have shown it on a prior occasion.

PARENTAL CONSENT

You must be 18+ with valid ID to get tattooed.

We do not perform any oral or surface piercings on minors. Cartilage piercings (including nostril) are performed on qualified minors aged 13+.

In order to pierce a minor we will need their ID, showing photo, name and birth-date, as well as that of the adult signing for them. Only parents or legal guardians can sign for a minor. Legal guardians must bring paperwork showing their guardianship of the minor. Piercing minors, including lobes for children 5+, is done on a case-by-case basis; the minor must show that they understand the responsibilities and commitment associated with the receiving and care of a piercing, they cannot be coerced or talked-into getting the piercing, and they must ask us for it themselves.

TATTOO POLICIES

You must be 18+ with valid ID to get tattooed.

Our minimum is $70, and our hourly rate is $150 per hour.

We require that tattoo clients not have had drugs or alcohol 8 hours prior to the procedure and request that they have eaten a meal within 4 hours prior. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of both client and tattoo artist, as well as the healing of the tattoo.

OUTSIDE JEWELRY POLICIES

We do not pierce with outside jewelry. This includes jewelry purchased at our location and has left the studio. This is to ensure the quality and cleanliness of the jewelry being used to perform new piercings. We will insert jewelry into healed piercings if we can verify that it was purchased at our studio. If a piercing needs to be redone, new jewelry must be purchased. In certain cases, discounts on the new jewelry can be given.

JEWELRY RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICIES

We know it's nice to buy jewelry as a present. Since nobody wants to wear used jewelry, we cannot accept returns or offer exchanges. We ask that you purchase gift certificates to guarantee the recipient gets appropriately fitting jewelry.
