You must have a VALID STATE or FEDERAL PHOTO ID with you (driver's license, State ID or Passport, etc.) to be tattooed or to be pierced no matter how old you are.

We will happily do many piercings on minors (ages14-17), should you have any questions as to which piercings can be performed on minors feel free contact the shop. Please note the following requirements that we must adhere to set forth by the Boston Public Health Commission. All persons under the age of 18 years old who wish to be pierced must have the following paperwork and be accompanied by either a parent or legal guardian.

Minor must have : a passport or a drivers license if neither then we need a birth certificate + a school id (with photo)

* We do not do navel piercings on anyone under the age of 16 years old*


Per the City of Boston we can not tattoo anyone under the age of 18.

We cannot tattoo you if you are drunk (the ink won't stay in properly and your tattoo will end up looking like crap!) or on drugs, and we will not pierce you if you are intoxicated.

You can not be on blood thinners or anti-coagulants, including aspirin, or suffering from any skin or blood conditions of any kind. We ask that clients with existing medical conditions , such as diabetes and immune system compromising conditions speak with a medical professional prior to receiving any body art procedure.

Appointment deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. If you need to change your appointment time, please call at least 24 hours in advance. Missed appointments and last-minute changes will result in losing your deposit.
