Large-Gauge Piercing Consultations
New piercings performed at larger-than-standard sizes
- 10 min10 minutes
- 10 US dollars$10
This appointment is for a consultation for piercings performed at larger-than-standard sizes. Examples include ear piercings larger than 10g, conch or other cartilage punches, septum piercings larger than 14g, etc. This is NOT for stretching a piercing you already have--please use the "stretch/taper" option for that service. These services are offered ONLY after a consultation with the appropriate piercer, and pricing varies depending on the specific service (this will be discussed at your consultation appointment but starts at $50). To schedule a large-gauge piercing service, you will need to first schedule a consultation using this page. You will NOT be pierced at this appointment; this is a required consultation to discuss an appointment for a future service. Normal booking terms and cancellation policy applies.
Booking Terms & Cancellation Policy: Booking your appointment requires a non-refundable deposit. The deposit is your full service fee. Jewelry cost is in addition to service fee and is chosen and paid for in-studio at the time of your appointment; jewelry purchase is required for piercings and installs unless we are re-installing jewelry previously purchased from Sadu (please see terms for qualifying jewelry on our website). If you are unsure about the total fee or jewelry minimum for the service you'd like to book, please inquire prior to booking online. All jewelry purchases are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. If you are unsure about the age requirement for the piercing you would like, please check out our FAQ or send us a message to inquire BEFORE booking. Deposit refunds will NOT be given for failure to meet the age requirement of the piercing you request—you will have the option of choosing another age-appropriate piercing at that time, rescheduling for a $10 rebooking fee, or receiving a partial refund minus the $10 cancellation fee. Please note that ID is required, even for minors! Please see the FAQ section of our website for minor & adult ID requirements. Failure to bring proper ID will result in your appointment being rescheduled for a $10 rebooking fee or a loss of deposit minus the cancellation fee. We strongly suggest booking a consultation prior to anatomy-dependent piercings (please note that some piercings REQUIRE a consultation). If you choose to not book a consultation prior to your piercing and are found to be ineligible for the piercing you choose (due to anatomy, scarring, etc), you have the following options: choose another piercing at that time, rebook for a future date for a $10 rebooking fee, or receive a deposit refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. Genital piercings REQUIRE a consultation prior to booking a piercing appointment; please see all guidelines & appointment terms pertaining to genital piercings on our website. Failure to book your genital piercing appointment with the correct staff member will result in a $10 rebooking fee for a rescheduled appointment with the appropriate piercer. Same-day piercing appointments following consultations are subject to availability and are not implied or guaranteed. To reschedule an existing appointment, visit the Contact Us page of our website. Deposits may be transferred one time to another date for no charge if requested with a minimum 24-hours notice. Rescheduling with less than 24-hours notice requires a $10 rebooking fee for piercing services. Rescheduling a non-piercing service with less than 24 hours notice results in loss of initial deposit; you will need to book a new appointment and pay the associated deposit. Full deposits are non-refundable; no exceptions. Deposits are forfeited in their entirety if you don't show up for your appointment. Clients who are more than 10-minutes late to their piercing appointment will be offered the one-time courtesy of rescheduling and having their deposit moved to a different date for a $10 rebooking fee. Due to time constraints, clients who are 10 minutes late to any other appointment type will forfeit their deposit and need to reschedule with another deposit. By booking your appointment, you agree that you have read and will follow our “Studio Policies” listed on our website. Failure to adhere to these policies will result in your appointment being rescheduled with the aforementioned rebooking fee or cancelled. While we strive to keep things flowing smoothly and see each client promptly, due to the nature of our services, delays can happen--but we will always strive to keep your wait to a minimum.
