The Service Fee
We charge a flat rate service fee of $30 per 20 minute appointment. This is a small charge for the piercing advice, the preparation of the piercing station, and also the time it takes for a deep clean before & after your appointment.
Within one 20 minute appointment, you are able to get up to 3 piercings. Jewelry is charged separately, and prices will depend on the jewelry that you choose.

Aftercare & Downsizing
The aftercare of a piercing is as important as the piercing itself, it will need some love and attention in order to heal properly. Our piercer will offer you personalised aftercare during your appointment, but you can read our full guide below.
Aftercare & Downsizing
After a while we'll ask you to come back in for jewellery downsizing. Smaller posts can be purchased in-store (£10 for titanium or £65 for solid gold) and our piercers will then fit them for you for free. You can book a jewellery change by contacting your nearest A&M store.
Remember that some jewellery can't be downsized - check with your piercer during your appointment.

Lobes piercings: 10-years-old. They’ll need to be accompanied by a legal guardian. Both guardian and child need a valid ID. In the case of different last names, a birth/adoption certificate must be presented matching the guardian’s name.
Cartilage piercings: 16-years-old. We’ll need you to bring ID, and we challenge 25.
We only accept government issued ID, and we don’t accept photocopies (just the original). e.g Passports, Driving licence.
We challenge 25, so we recommend you bring your ID with you! We don’t accept photocopies.
If you are 16-18 years old you will definitely need to bring a valid ID (either a passport, UK PASS card scheme or driving licence) with you when getting pierced. This is a legal requirement and is needed for insurance purposes. If we think you look under the age of 18 we will ID you, so we advise you to bring along ID just in case.
If you are 10-15 years old we can pierce your ears with the permission from a parent or legal guardian, they will have to bring along ID for themselves and the minor. The adult will have to do the consent form. If the guardians' surname is different to child's, we require a birth certificate or adoption certificate. No exceptions!
We cannot pierce you if any of these apply:
• You have taken any blood thinning medication in the 24 hours before your appointment (e.g. Aspirin)• You have had alcohol or taken any recreational drugs in the 24 hours before your appointment• You're pregnant or breastfeeding• You haven’t eaten 4 hours before your appointment. To avoid feeling ill or faint, make sure you’ve eaten!• If you have any health conditions, such as Epilepsy, you will require a doctors note. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
The maximum amount of piercings you can have during one appointment is 2, but you'd need to select the "Two Ear Piercing Appointment". This can be a combination of lobe and cartilage, however only ever two cartilage piercings in the two ear piercing appointment on the same ear.
Our piercing collection consists of both studs and hoops, but you’ll need to check with your piercer to make sure they’re appropriate for your piercing placement. You can check out our titanium and 14k gold piercing jewellery here.
You can buy our 14k Gold Piercing Jewelry online with a shorter post for your healed piercings. We don’t sell our titanium range of jewelry online at the moment.
We only pierce daiths with specific styles of hoops and studs designed for daith piercings. Your piercer will be able to let you know what jewelry fits your piercing!
We're unable to pierce your conch using a hoop, because of the healing process. After a few months, when your piercing has fully healed, you can then change your stud to a ring if you wish. Book a ‘Jewelry Change Appointment’ online and we can do this for you with one of our other styles.
This will totally depend on your scar tissue, and if your piercer thinks it’s safe to do so. We recommend booking a consultation appointment before.
Changing your piercing is all dependent on how your piercing is healing, and your piercing placement. To find out recommended healing times, check out our Aftercare Guide. Once your piercing has fully healed, you can book a ‘Jewelry Change Appointment’ online to change your jewelry.
Healing times vary from person to person, and your piercing placement. Read about healing times on our Aftercare Guide.
Depending on how long you’ve had your piercing, we recommend visiting us in-store as soon as you can.
If you’ve lost your jewelry, try to find the original post and put a plaster on it as changing the jewelry can cause the hole to shrink down. Contact our Customer Care Team to book a replacement.
