At NEXT! we want everyone to have a pleasant and positive experience, including our youngest of clients. We will take the time to explain the procedure and aftercare to you and your child and make sure they know it’s okay to be afraid or nervous.
If you are bringing your child to get pierced, it is recommended that you give yourself plenty of time as sometimes little ones need a break between ears to muster up the courage for the second one. If your child has a favorite comfort toy or treat, it might be helpful to bring that along with you.
We do not use piercing guns as they are unsanitary, prone to coming out crooked/uneven, cause unnecessary tissue damage, and the jewellery is not designed promote healing.
We emphasize the importance of informed consent. We will not pierce anyone who is unable to communicate that they want this piercing and that they know it will hurt. If at any point your child changes their mind, we will respect their wishes. Piercings are a permanent cosmetic alteration to the body and no one but the owner of the body being pierced can consent to that. Because of our values we will, under no circumstances, pierce infants.
