FAQ & PRICING

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

WHEN YOU COME INTO THE Honolulu Piercing Company IT IS REQUIRED THAT YOU HAVE A LEGAL I.D. PRESENT AT THE TIME OF THE PIERCING. THIS CAN BE A DRIVERS LICENSE, STATE I.D., OR PASSPORT. WE WILL ALSO TAKE A CLEAR AND LEGIBLE PICTURE OF SAID ACCEPTED I.DS. AS SOMEONE OVER THE AGE OF 18 WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT YOUR  BIRTH CERTIFICATES, INSURANCE CARDS OR SCHOOL I.D.

CAN I GO SWIMMING?

AFTER GETTING ANY KIND OF PIERCING YOU’LL WANT TO STAY OUT OF THE WATER. THIS INCLUDES OCEANS, POOLS, HOT TUBES, PONDS, LAKES, RIVERS AND EVEN BATH TUBS. ANYTHING THAT WOULD SOAK YOUR PIERCING YOU’LL WANT TO STEER CLEAR OF FOR MINIMUM 6-8 WEEKS, THE LONGER THE BETTER. SHOWERING IS PERFECTLY FINE AND ENCOURAGED. YOU RUN THE RISK OF AN INFECTION WHEN SWIMMING TOO SOON, AS ALL BODIES OF WATER CAN HARBOR BACTERIA AND IN TURN RISK A OPEN WOUND (LIKE A PIERCING) TO BECOMING SUSCEPTIBLE TO INFECTION. 

DO YOU ACCEPT CARD?

YES, WE DO! IN FACT WE TRY TO MAKE THINGS AS EASY AS POSSIBLE HERE AT HPC. WE ACCEPT USD CASH AS WELL AS ALL CREDIT & DEBT CARDS. WE USE SQUARE PRODUCTS WHICH ALSO GIVES US THE ABILITY TO ACCEPT APPLE PAY!  FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE WE ARE ALSO LOCATED NEAR MUTIPLE ATMS. 

 

CAN I BRING MY OWN JEWELRY?

IN MOST CASES, NO. WE WANT TO ENSURE JEWELRY USED IN FRESH PIERCINGS OR INSTALLED IN HEALED PIERCINGS ARE OF THE UTMOST QUALITY SO THAT WE KNOW OUR CLIENTS ARE WEARING JEWELRY THAT IS SAFE. BY BRINGING IN YOUR OWN JEWELRY WE CAN NOT ATEST TO THE MATERIALS ITS MADE OF, NOR THE QUALITY. WITH THAT SAID YOU’LL BE HAPPY TO KNOW WE HAVE A WIDE VARIETY OF JEWELRY TO CHOSE FROM AND WE’RE SURE YOU’LL FIND SOMETHING THAT YOU’LL LOVE. 

 

HOW DOES MY JEWELRY WORK?

BEFORE EACH PIERCING IS PREFORMED YOUR PIERCER WILL GO OVER HOW THE JEWELRY YOU SELECTED WORKS AND HOW TO UNDO THE JEWELRY, SO MAKE SURE TO PAY ATTENTION. IF BY CHANCE YOU FORGET NO WORRIES AT ALL. YOU CAN ALWAYS BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE US REMOVE IT AND RE-TEACH YOU OR YOU CAN REACH OUT VIA EMAIL SO WE CAN EXPLAIN IT YOU. ILLUSTRATION BROUGHT TO BY JOELTRON.

 

SHOULD I TIP MY PIERCER?

WHILE ITS NOT EXPECTED, IT IS ALWAY GREATLY APPRECIATED. JUST LIKE ANY SERVICE INDUSTRY GETTING YOUR HAIR CUT OR COLORED, A TATTOO, OR YOUR NAILS DONE TIPPING IS CUSTOMARY WHEN GREAT SERVICE IS PROVIDED. IF YOU’D LIKE TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION FOR YOUR PIERCER OR OUR STAFF, TIPS ARE AN AWESOME WAY TO SHOW THAT. WE ALSO LIKE TO BE TIPPED SWEETS AND CAFFEINE!

ANATOMY CHECKS & WHY THEY’RE IMPORTANT 

THE BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT BEING HUMAN IS WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, WE COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES. WITH THAT A PIERCING THAT MIGHT WORK WELL FOR ONE MIGHT NOT WORK FOR ANOTHER THIS IS WHY ANATOMY CHECKS ARE A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR PRE-PIERCING CONSULTATION (WALK-IN FRIENDLY) BELOW WE WILL DISCUSS COMMON PIERCINGS THAT REQUIRE ANATOMY CHECKS.

NAVEL PIERCINGS 

 

TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING ARE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PIERCINGS TO THIS DAY, IT IS GENERALLY WHAT SOMEONE ENVISION WHEN THEY MENTION A NAVEL PIERCING. BUT NOT ALL NAVELS ARE SHAPED TO ACCOMMODATE WHATS KNOWN AS A “TRADITIONAL NAVEL” PIERCING. IN ORDER FOR YOU TO BE A CANDIDATE FOR THIS PIERCING YOU MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING. FOR STARTERS THIS NAVEL PIERCING REQUIRES YOU TO HAVE A DEFINITIVE “LIP” WHICH IS THAT FLAP OF SKIN THAT IS RIGHT ABOVE INDENTATION OF YOUR NAVEL. THIS LIP MUST HAVE ENOUGH SPACE AT THE BOTTOM (INSIDE) OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON IN ORDER FOR YOUR JEWELRY TO SIT COMFORTABLY. IF YOUR NAVEL IS LACKING THIS TYPE OF ANATOMY OTHER PIERCING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE.

A LOWER NAVEL PIERCING IS A UNIQUE AND TRENDY PIERCING ALTERNATIVE TO A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING. JUST LIKE A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING THERE IS A CERTAIN ANATOMY THATS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THEM. LIKE WE PREVIOUSLY EXPLAINED WITH TRADITIONAL NAVEL REQUIRING A “LIP” SO DOES A LOWER NAVEL BUT NATURALLY THIS LIP WILL SIT ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BELLY BUTTON VERSUS THE TOP. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE THE CLIENT DID NOT HAVE A TOP LIP TO SUPPORT A TRADITIONAL NAVEL PIERCING BUT DID IN FACT HAVE ONE FOR A LOWER NAVEL. WITH A CONSULTATION WITH OUR WONDERFUL PIERCERS WE CAN MAKE SURE YOU GET A NAVEL PIERCING THAT CAN NOT ONLY LOOK GREAT BUT HAVE ITS BEST CHANCE IN HEALING. 

 

A FLOATING NAVEL IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE LEAST KNOWN OUT OF ITS NAVEL PIERCING SIBLINGS THIS IS BECAUSE A FLOATING NAVEL IS PREFORMED JUST LIKE A TRADITIONAL ONE, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BEING JEWELRY SELECTED. WITH A TRADITIONAL NAVEL WE MENTIONED THAT THERE MUST BE ENOUGH ROOM INSIDE THE NAVEL SO THAT JEWELRY SITS COMFORTABLY. SOMETIMES SOMEONE MIGHT HAVE WHATS KNOWN AS AN “INNY” AND AN “OUTTIE” IF THE “OUTTY” OF THE NAVEL IS GOING TO PUSH AGAINST THE JEWELRY WE CONSIDER DOING A FLOATING NAVEL. A FLOATING NAVEL IS ALSO A PRIME CHOICE IF YOU HAVE AN ELONGATED NAVEL OR IF WHEN YOU BEND OVER/SIT YOUR NAVEL COLLAPSES INTO ITSELF. IF YOUR NAVEL DOES THAT AND YOU WERE TO  WEAR “TRADITIONAL” NAVEL JEWELRY IT CAN PUSH ON IT AND CAUSE A LOT OF DISCOMFORT WHILE HINDERING YOUR HEALING. 

NIPPLE PIERCINGS 

A SUPERNUMERARY NIPPLE IS BASICALLY WHATS KNOWN AS A THIRD NIPPLE. IT IS CONSIDERED A COMMON BIRTH DEFECT AND MOST TIMES THIS NIPPLE CAN GO UNDETECTED. THEY ARE USUALLY FOUND SOMEWHERE ON THE CHEST BUT ALSO CAN BE FOUND ON THE ABDOMEN. THE ” THIRD” NIPPLES ARE  USUALLY NOT AS PRONOUNCED AS THE TRADITIONAL OTHER TWO NIPPLES AND MANY TIMES DO NOT HAVE THE ANATOMY TO SUPPORT A PIERCING BUT FUN FACT THAT IF YOU COME IN TO GET A PIERCING AND HAPPEN TO ALSO HAVE A THIRD NIPPLE THAT CAN BE PIERCING TONY WILL DO IT FOR FREE!

AN INVERTED NIPPLE IS A ALSO COMMON CONDITION WHERE THE NIPPLE PULLS INWARD INTO THE BREAST INSTEAD OF POINTING OUTWARD. IN THIS CONSULTATION WE WILL CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT A PIERCING WILL NOT HAVE EXCESSIVE PRESSURE PUSHING OUT ONTO THE BARBELL & MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A LIKELIHOOD TO HEAL. WE WILL ALSO BE CHECKING TO SEE IF ITS POSSIBLE TO PIERCE UNDER THE NIPPLE AND IF THE NIPPLE DOES PROTRUDE OUT WITH SOME TISSUE MANIPULATION. IF ONE OF OUR PIERCERS TELLS YOU THEY FEEL YOU’RE NOT A CANDIDATE FOR THIS PIERCING IT IS BECAUSE THEY FEEL YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME/IF ANY CHANCE AT HEALING. PLEASE TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION. 

A FLAT NIPPLE  IS JUST THAT IT DOES NOT HACE A NATURALLY PROTRUDING NIPPLE NOR DOES IT HAVE ANY INVERSION. WHEN CONSIDERING PIERCING THESE TYPES OF NIPPLES WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR HOW THEY CHANGE SHAPE WHEN ERECTED AND TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PIERCING WILL NOT HAVE EXCESSIVE PRESSURE PUSHING OUT ONTO THE BARBELL. OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A LIKELIHOOD TO HEAL IF ONE OF OUR PIERCERS TELLS YOU THEY FEEL YOU’RE NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THIS PIERCING IT IS BECAUSE THEY FEEL YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME/IF ANY CHANCE AT HEALING, PLEASE TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION.

INDUSTRIAL PIERCINGS 

 

INDUSTRIAL PIERCINGS HAVE BEEN QUITE POPULAR FOR MANY YEARS AND WHILE WE LOVE THESE PIERCINGS JUST AS MUCH AS YOU DO THEY ARE EXTREMELY ANATOMY BASED PIERCINGS. IF THESE PIERCINGS ARE PREFORMED ON UNSUITABLE ANATOMY THEY CAN CAUSE A MULTITUDE OF PROBLEMS AND EVEN REJECT OUT OF THE EAR. WHEN DOING A CONSULTATION WE HAVE TO BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A PROMINENT OUTER HELIX RIDGE. IF YOUR ANATOMY LACKS SAID RIDGE AND BEGINS TO GO FLAT WHERE WE WOULD PIERCE YOUR EAR YOU WOULD BE CONSIDERED NOT A CANDIDATE FOR A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING, BUT GOOD NEWS IS THERES AN ALTERNATIVE! 

 

WHEN YOUR ANATOMY ISN’T SUITED FOR A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING YOU MIGHT CONSIDER THE ALTERNATIVE OR WHATS KNOW AS A CUSTOM BEND INDUSTRIAL. WHEN A EAR DOESN’T HAVE A PROMINENT OUTER RIDGE AND BEGINS TO FLATTEN OUT ITS BEST WE CREATE A CUSTOM BEND BARBELL. CREATING AN L LIKE BEND OR BEND SUITED FOR YOUR EAR IT WILL ALLOW US TO GIVE YOU A PIERCING THAT APPEARS LIKE A TRADITIONAL INDUSTRIAL PIERCING BUT WITH THE ACTUAL CAPABILITIES OF HEALING AND NOT PUTTING ANY UNNECESSARY PRESSURE ON YOUR EAR. 

GENITAL PIERCINGS 

VUVLA PIERCINGS HAVE BEEN QUITE POPULAR FOR SOMETIME AND ARE QUITE SAFE WHEN DONE CORRECTLY WITH PROPER JEWELRY.  THE BEAUTY ABOUT BEING HUMAN IS WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT ANATOMY THIS IS WHY A CONSULTATION IS NECESSARY TO BE SURE YOU HAVE THE ANATOMY TO SUPPORT THE POSSIBLE GENITAL PIERCING YOU DESIRE. THE MOST POPULAR VULVA PIERCING IS CALLED A VCH OR ALSO KNOWN AS A VERTICAL CLITORAL HOOD. OTHER PIERCINGSYOU CAN RESEARCH BEFORE YOUR CONSOLATION ARE, HCH, CHRISTINA, TRIANGLE, GLANS, PRINCESS DIANA, FOURCHETTE, INNER LABIA AND OUTER LABIA. 

PENIAL PIERCINGS HAVE BEEN QUITE POPULAR FOR SOMETIME AND ARE QUITE SAFE WHEN DONE CORRECTLY WITH PROPER JEWELRY.  THE BEAUTY ABOUT BEING HUMAN IS WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT ANATOMY THIS IS WHY A CONSULTATION IS NECESSARY TO BE SURE YOU HAVE THE ANATOMY TO SUPPORT THE POSSIBLE GENITAL PIERCING YOU DESIRE. THE MOST POPULAR PENIAL PIERCING IS CALLED A PRINCE ALBRET. OTHER PIERCINGS YOU CAN RESEARCH BEFORE YOUR CONSOLATION ARE, FRENUM (JACOBS LADDER), APADRAVYA, AMPALLANG, DEEP SHAFT, DYDOE, FORESKIN, GUICHE, HAFADA, REVERSE P.A, SCROTAL, PUBIC.

PIERCINGS WE DO NOT OFFER

WHILE WE LOVE UNIQUE ANATOMY AND TRYING NEW THINGS THERE ARE CERTAIN PIERCINGS WE JUST WONT DO, BELOW YOU’LL FIND INFORMATION ON PIERCING(S) WE WILL NOT DO

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS IN OUR INDUSTRY WE HAVE SEEN MANY PIERCINGS COME AND GO IN POPULARITY. WITH THESE COMING YEARS WE’VE SEEN A RISE IN A PIERCING KNOW AS A “SNAKE EYE” PIERCING OR A SCOOP PIERCING. WITH DECADES OF EXPERIENCE FROM EDUCATED PIERCERS AROUND THE GLOBE IT HAS BEEN NOTED THAT NO ETHICAL AND EDUCATED PIERCER HAS WARRANTED THESE PIERCINGS AS SAFE OR WORTHY OF PUTTING OUR CLIENTS HEALTH AT RISK. WE ARE AMOUNG THESE LIKE MINDED PEERS  WHO AGREE THAT THESE PIERCINGS ARE NOT ONLY UNPROFESSIONAL BUT DETRIMENTAL TO OUR CLIENTS AND FRIENDS. 

“SNAKE EYE” & “SCOOP PIERCINGS”

WITH THESE PIERCINGS YOU ARE PINNING TWO MAJOR MUSCLE IN YOUR TONGUE TOGETHER IMPEDING THE PROPER USE OF YOUR TONGUE AND AT TIMES CAUSING A LISP. THE MORE MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THESE PIERCINGS IS THE CLACKING OF JEWELRY ON YOUR TEETH AND THE DAMAGE IT CAN CAUSE TO YOUR TEETH SUCH AS CHIPPING. THE JEWELRY CONSTANTLY SITS TOWARDS THE TIP OF YOUR TONGUE AND CONSTANTLY WEAR AT YOUR GUM LINE WHICH CAN CAUSE IRREVERSIBLE & EXPENSIVE DAMAGE.
