My post/jewelry looks too long/short

It’s time to downsize/upsize! When pierced initially most piercings are done with a longer post length to accommodate for swelling from the new piercing. Typically swelling will dissipate in a couple months. Your piercing will appear long. This is a good thing! It means that you’re healing. You should get a shorter post more fitted to allow for a smoother healing process.

Sometimes piercings can swell more than anticipated. If you feel like your jewelry is pinching or too short, you need longer jewelry to accommodate for the extra inflammation.

Oh no, I’m moving! Where should I go to downsize my fresh piercing?

The Association of Professional Piercers has a live map of all APP Member shops. Visit this to find a piercer in your upcoming neck of the woods.

When is it time to downsize my jewelry?

After a couple months swelling and inflammation should go down. Once you feel you have a good amount of wiggle room on your jewelry, feel free to pop in and downsize.

Can I order custom jewelry?

Absolutely! We require 50% deposit to create the order. Remainder to be paid upon arrival of jewelry.

Timeframes for arrival can vary from 1-6 months depending on the piece and company is being ordered from.

What jewelry companies can I custom order through the shop?

We have a list of our vendors available on our jewelry page.

Can I bring in my own jewelry to get pierced with?

If the jewelry is purchased from us we can potentially use it in a new piercing. It largely depends on length and fit.

Jewelry must be dropped off 24 hours in advance of your appointment so we can properly sterilize and prep your jewelry. When you bring your jewelry in 24 hours before, we can verify if we can use the jewelry for your piercing.

Do you carry gold jewelry?

Heck yeah!!! We love gold! Not only do we have standard gold jewelry, we have a variety of companies in white, yellow, and rose gold.

Visit our jewelry page for a list of our vendors.

How long before I can change my jewelry?

This can vary based on the type of piercing and your body. All piercings have different healing timeframes. We need to wait until they are healed before you change jewelry regularly.

Here’s some general timeframes for most popular piercings:

  • Anchors: 4-6 months
  • Ear Cartilage: 9 -12 months
  • Ear Lobes: 4-6 months
  • Eye Brows: 4-6 months
