How do piercing appointments work?

All studs for piercing will be available to view on the day of piercing, and our stylist and piercer team will help you select and purchase your studs in our store. Piercing studs are not available for purchase online.
Our piercing service fee is $25 USD/CAD and £20 GBP for events and permanent studios, in addition to the cost of your choice of jewelry.

Lobe and cartilage piercings will take about 20 minutes. Our piercer will walk you through the process and any aftercare tips.

What should I do to prepare before going into my appointment?
Ensure you have had a snack and are fully hydrated.
Bring your government-issued ID. If you are between 16-17, ensure both you and your parent or legal guardian also bring their government-issued photo ID’s (Drivers License, Passport, etc).

What types of piercings are offered?
The Piercing Studio offers eight types of ear piercings, as labeled below. Heal time varies based on your chosen piercing location. Select areas (not labeled) are not able to be pierced due to the length of our threadless flat back studs.
Why can I only get pierced with threadless flat back studs and not the butterfly back studs?
Rather than using traditional butterfly backings, we opted to use threadless flat back studs which are more comfortable throughout the healing process. Butterfly backings can move throughout wear which is not ideal during the healing process as it can cause infections, abrasions etc. Threadless Flat back studs are preferred by piercers due to this - even outside Mejuri!
Why is there a price difference between the threadless flat back studs and the butterfly back studs?
The post used for piercing is longer than a typical butterfly backing to accommodate for swelling during healing and is more complex to change on your own. This is why we recommend making checkup appointments with us. Since our piercing studs are threadless flat back studs, their design is more intricate by nature. This along with our materials used (either titanium or 14k, depending on the length), results in an increased price.
Do the piercing studios accept gratuity?
Yes, effective July 1st the piercing studio leads are able to accept direct gratuity from customers as token of appreciation for their service. E-transfer and cash accepted at Canadian locations, Venmo and cash accepted at U.S locations.

What earrings can I get pierced with?
We can pierce our entire piercing collection in any of the above locations. Please note that you will only be able to be pierced with the Mejuri piercing collection shown here, exclusively. Per piercing, a newly purchased stud is required from the Mejuri piercing collection.
How many piercings can I get done in one appointment?
Four piercings maximum (across both ears) if you are only getting lobe piercings
Three piercings maximum (across both ears) if you are getting a mix of cartilage and lobe piercings
The number and location of piercings can affect your quality of sleep. Your piercer will make a recommendation based on the anatomy of your ear, sleeping habits and healing status of any of your other piercings.
Are there age restrictions or any other restrictions I should be aware of?
Lobe and cartilage piercings will be available for 16+.
No parental consent needed for those 18+, but you will need to provide a valid government issued photo ID and will need to sign a waiver for yourself.
Parental consent is required for those aged 16 and 17; a parent must be on site and sign the waiver.
Those between the ages of 16-17 must be accompanied by their legal guardian. Both child and legal guardian must have a valid photographic ID or equivalent with them on the day (e.g. passport, driver’s license, birth certificate). If the child and legal guardian’s last name are different, proof of guardianship must also be presented (passport, birth certificate etc.). A valid photo ID or equivalent must be required for proof of age.
Additional restrictions: you cannot be pierced if you are pregnant or nursing.
Can I get an old piercing re-pierced?
Yes, if the piercer determines that it is safe to do so.

What is considered “normal” after the piercing?
It varies from one person to another!
Within the first few weeks: Lobe and cartilage piercings will experience some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, or bruising.
Generally, within the first 2-4 months: Some discoloration, itching, and secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (not pus) that may form some crust on the jewelry can occur. The tissue may tighten around the jewelry as it heals.
Around 2-3 months: Lobes are typically healed. If your jewelry feels loose, book a check up appointment to come in for a downsize. Be patient, keep cleaning throughout the healing period!
Around 6-8 months: Cartilage is typically healed. If your jewelry feels loose, book a check up appointment to come in for a downsize. Be patient and keep cleaning throughout the healing period!
Is there anything that I should do or avoid doing to prepare for the piercing ahead of time?
DO: Ensure you eat and hydrate before arriving.
AVOID: Please do not consume alcohol or banned substances prior to getting pierced.
Is there anything that I should do post-piercing?
Be patient and keep cleaning your piercing every day until it is healed. If your piercing starts feeling loose, book a check up appointment to downsize your jewelry backing. Having a proper fit once healed will avoid irritation from snagging while sleeping.
Is there anything that I should avoid post-piercing?
Being cautious is the best way to avoid infection—this is an open wound that is healing.
Try to minimize any activities that involve excessive sweating (eg. exercise), but if you do, shower or clean your wound directly afterwards.
Avoid taking your jewelry out to avoid the hole closing.
Lobes: for 3-4 weeks
Cartilage: for 2 months
What does it mean to downsize your post?
The piercing backing you are pierced with is longer than a typical butterfly backing to accommodate for swelling during healing. When your piercing has healed, you have the choice to downsize the size of your backing to prevent it from being loose and causing irritation around your piercing.
