Service Fees & Jewelry Cost
I understand budgets are important, however it is always important to shop for quality rather than the cheapest price. When a client comes to me they are searching for a piercing that will be done to the highest standard possible in a clean environment, using the highest quality products, the best and safest techniques and they expect to receive the most up to date and accurate education from me- and I aim to meet that expectation every time.
You can certainly find someone who does piercings for much cheaper than I can offer you, but as a professional piercing artist that cares about my clients, I will never cut corners and purposely put your health at risk to reduce my cost.
Pricing is divided into two separate categories. The "Service Fee" is what the piercing costs, and what you know I will earn from my time and skill with you while providing a service. My piercing fees range $20-$80 depending on the area we are piercing. I don't make money off of everything you pay at the time of your visit. Much like a hair stylist or a tattoo artist.
The other category is your " Jewelry Cost". This is what you know the product of your choosing is worth at our studio. I chose to spearate the two because it gives my clients more freedom to choose. For example, a piece of jewelry I might choose for a piercing at first could be different than what my client would choose and it might be more, or less expensive. Therefore, you have the opportunity to make the experience completely yours and you know exactly where your money is going.
