During the consultation, the piercers will talk to the child and explain what will happen. By treating the young client as an adult, it makes them feel more comfortable and respected. If the child can keep eye contact and hold the conversation with our piercers, we can proceed with booking an appointment.
Usually, we do not do the piercing the same day as the consultation. This applies especially to young clients who seem unsure or cannot hold eye contact. If the child seems to be nervous, our piercers will suggest waiting a bit until going through with the piercings. They have wonderful suggestions to help build up your child’s level of responsibility to get them to where they need to be in order to properly care for their fresh piercings.
It is our goal to make this experience a pleasant one for the young client and we will not force them to do it if we don’t think that they are ready. Not every child is able to care for fresh piercings and we do not want to set any of our clients up for failure.
