We do not perform any piercings with a piercing gun at Superficial ModSpa. Piercing guns pose a variety of potential problems: they cannot be effectively sterilized, and piercing with a gun forces a dull earring post through tissue which can lead to scarring and embedding of jewelry.
Instead, we use sterile equipment, single-use hollow needles, and implant-grade 100% titanium jewelry for all piercings. This ensures every client, no matter what age, gets a piercing that is both safe and easy-to-heal.
Our piercing rooms can only accommodate a limited number of people. Both parents or guardians may attend the appointment. For the efficiency of the procedure and to ensure the focus of the appointment remains on the child being pierced, we do not always permit the accompaniment of friends or siblings for minors getting pierced. A sibling who may be of comfort to the child during the procedure may be allowed in the procedure room at the piercer’s discretion. Please bear in mind that our piercing studio is a very "grown up" environment where hazardous materials and medical grade equipment are used daily. All guests in the studio will be expected to follow the guidelines as provided by the staff. Please call us (781) 803-3160 to inquire about bringing guests for minor piercing appointments.
We are an appointment based studio, and there are limits on the amount of time that can be dedicated to any scheduled procedure or appointment. If time runs out before we finish the appointment or if we are not able to complete the piercing (for any reason other than the fault of the piercer) we may need to schedule a new appointment to complete the piercings which would incur an additional set-up fee.
Thank you for considering getting your child’s piercing done by one of our professional piercers at Superficial ModSpa! It means a lot that you are trusting us to take care of your child, and we strive to give you and your child the best possible piercing experience.

Ear lobe piercings only. Continue reading below for more details.
Ear lobes and miscellaneous, single ear piercings.
All piercing services EXCEPT nipple, genital, surface, or dermal piercings.
All piercing services EXCEPT nipple or genital piercings.
At Superficial ModSpa, we can offer ear lobe piercing services for children ages 5-9. If a child is younger than 5 and can verbalize their desire for the piercing and their understanding of the process with us, our piercers may pierce younger than 5 at their discretion, pending a Minor Consultation.
At this time, we are unable to offer tandem lobe piercing services. Each lobe will be pierced individually, one after the other, by the same piercer.
These prices include the cost of the lobe piercings, 100% hypoallergenic titanium, flat back earring posts, PriXxcription Saline Aftercare, along with NeilMed Saline Aftercare. The price will vary depending on the earring tops that are chosen.
For all minor piercings, we require the parent/guardian and the child to book and attend a brief Minor Consultation appointment prior to booking for the lobe piercings. During the Minor Consultation, a Guest Experience Expert will go over the piercing procedure, piercing aftercare, jewelry options, and any questions you or your child may have. This is to ensure that the parent/guardian and the child are aware of the responsibilities of caring for new piercings and to ensure the child understands and is completely prepared for their piercing procedure.
If the piercer feels the child is not ready for the responsibility of the piercing, the piercer may decline to perform the procedure at any time. Likewise, if the piercer feels it is not in the child’s best interest to continue once started, we may stop and suggest that the child come back at a later date. These decisions are made with the child’s safety in mind, so we ask that parent(s) and guardian(s) respect the judgement of the piercer.
