Frequently Asked Questions.

Before the piercing, we will take you through the relevant forms that need to be signed. Once this is done, we will clean and mark the area you would like pierced - we will always make sure you're happy with the location before carrying out the piercing. When the piercing is done, we will show you how to clean and look after your piercing while it heals.

We can pierce any part of the ear lobe or outer cartilage. This includes lobe, upper lobe, mid cartilage, and helix.

We offer nostril piercings. We do not do septum, bridge or rhino piercings.

Ear piercings are usually the least painful kind of piercing. All our piercing earrings have ultra-thin piercing posts, which help your ears heal faster and minimise any discomfort. All of our trained piercing staff have had piercings at RUBIROX and will put you at ease if you are feeling nervous.

Changing your piercing is all dependant on how your piercing is healing. We recommend waiting at least 6 weeks for lobe piercings and 12 weeks for cartilage and nose. Once this time has passed you are fine to change your jewellery but you must keep an earring in until it has healed. The piercing may still get irritated from time to time, if this happens we recommend going back to your piercing care routine until it calms. If you are unsure please contact us or come visit us in-store.

Everyone heals differently, but typically lobe piercings take 6-12 weeks. Cartilage and nose piercings up to 1 year.

If you are 16-18 years old you will 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. *We cannot accept pictures or photocopies of ID

If you are 13-15 years old we can pierce your ears or nose with the permission from a parent or legal guardian, they will have to bring along ID for themselves and the minor.
