STEP 1: INSPECTION

Before any piece of jewelry reaches you, our staff will inspect the jewelry for any manufacturer defects & steam clean the piece to remove any debris and residual polishing compound. Although this isn't considered a necessary step for most piercers, we believe in taking every precaution possible to ensure you have a smooth and easy healing process.

STEP 2: STERILIZATION

The most critical step needed for a safe piercing is proper sterilization. We choose to use a Statim 2000 autoclave for this purpose. This autoclave is spore tested monthly to ensure that the sterilization cycle is functioning perfectly. This is where your new jewelry will become sterile and ready for its new home!

STEP 3: PIERCING

After all the prior steps are taken, its now time for the piercing process! The piercing technician will disinfect the area to be pierced with alcohol, mark the location & finally prep the area with a surgical scrub.  Once you are ready, the piercing technician will don sterile gloves & complete the piercing process! After, any remaining prep will be rinsed away with a sterile saline.
