AGE POLICIES

At Elemental we love our younger clients! We have a few policies in place to ensure we can take the very best care of our youngest piercing fans. 

We require that the person being pierced be able to consent to the procedure, so we do not pierce infant's ears. We find that the earliest age we can successfully communicate with is at five years of age.

Earlobe piercing: Ages 5+.
If your child is under the age of 10, a consultation is MANDATORY 24 hours before the actual piercing appointment. This is a meet and greet type appointment with them to go over our processes and answer any questions. For more information about kids lobe services, please see

Age 15+:
With parental consent and attendance, we offer most of our basic piercing options (all basic ear piercings, nostril*, septum*, lip* and navel)
.
This means that at the age of 14, we can ONLY offer earlobe piercing even with parental consent.

At age 16 and 17, we require parental consent and identification for eyebrow piercings. This means that any other piercing that is not listed below as 18+ will be possible to perform without parental presence.

For those 18+ we offer nipple piercings, tongue* piercings, industrials (based on the piercer's assessment of anatomy), genital piercings (inner/outer labia, VCH, pubic mound, PA frenum, and lorum),and surface anchors.

We require government issued photo ID for all piercing services! 

​* nasal and oral piercings and jewellery changes require proof of COVID vaccination
