Body Piercing Guidelines

Body piercings are an accessory that comes with responsibilities, especially during the healing process. It is very important to us that you have a well healed, happy piercing so please be sure to follow all instructions given to you by your body piercer at the time of your piercing. If you’ve forgotten any of the information you were given, all of our suggested aftercare can be found by clicking the “Aftercare” tab on the menu. Our professional piercers have worked hard to put this information together for our clients and if you have any questions regarding anything piercing related, please don’t hesitate to call or stop by the shop.

Spider-Bite Body Piercing is a professional piercing establishment that has been a staple in the Queen City for more than twenty years and our body piercers are intent on providing the best quality service to our clients.

In order to be pierced at Spider-Bite Body Piercing, you must be 18 years of age or older with a valid form of government issued ID. If you are under the age of 18 years old, you must be accompanied by parent or your legal guardian with a valid form of government issued ID and the child’s original birth certificate. Please note that we do not accept photocopies of birth certificates under any circumstances, per state law. Legal guardians, if not named on birth certificate, must provide proper proof of guardianship. Please also note that any names changes must be accompanied by legal documentation as well (ie marriage certificate, divorce papers, etc). The youngest clients we accept for earlobe piercings are ages 7 years old and up. Please see our Young Client Policy for more information.  If you are unsure if a piercing is available for a young client, please call the shop to double check before stopping in. Please note that there are specific piercings that are offered only to clients above the age of 18.

Our piercers are licensed professionals and have years of experience in their field. The aftercare that they provide has proven to be effective and gentle at healing piercings for all ages. It is very important that you follow the instructions given to you at the time of your piercing to ensure that it heals correctly for you. We do not recommend following any aftercare that is not given to you by our piercers. Some aftercare regimens can cause complications which can result in irritation or even loss of your piercing.

All piercings are done with implant grade titanium or 14k/18k gold. These materials are very bio-compatible so any client that may have sensitive skin allergies need not worry about the jewelry itself causing irritation. Additionally, our jewelry is internally threaded or threadless. The gems used are Swarovski crystals, genuine gems, and diamonds from our friends at Bellman’s Jewelers, Body Vision Los Angeles (BVLA), Anatometal, NeoMetal, Body Gems, and Industrial Strength..

If you have been sick recently or have a weakened immune system, it is highly recommended that you wait until you have fully fought off the cold or check with your physician before getting a piercing.

It is extremely important that you inform your piercer of any of the following allergies that you may be experiencing: prone to faintness, diabetes, epilepsy, heart condition, or any type of communicable disease. We want to do our best to accommodate all clients and knowing these things about you will only help us to better your experience while you are in the shop. 

If you are having issues with a piercing (even if you didn’t get it from us!), please stop in to the shop. Our piercers will be able to look at your piercing and make an appropriate plan to get your healing back on track.

We appreciate you coming to our shop to see our piercers. We aim to provide the best service possible when it comes to body piercing. If you feel that your piercer did an excellent job, tips are always appreciated and we always welcome reviews to let us know how we are doing!

Spider-Bite Body Piercing does not discriminate against race, age, sex, or how much money is being spent.

Spider-Bite Body Piercing reserves the right to refuse any piercing at any time for any reason they feel is justified.
