Age Restrictions

There are no laws in place to prevent anyone under the age of 18 getting a non-intimate body piercing, however at Newcastle Jewellery we want to act ethically and responsibly at all times. Therefore we have our own professional practice guidelines and we have set our own piercing age restrictions.

If you are under 18 years old and come for your piercing with a parent or legal guardian they will be asked to complete a consent form on your behalf no further ID is required.

In the absence of a parent or legal guardian we will require parent/legal guardian consent.

We gain consent by asking you to fill in a form on the premises; we will then contact your parent/guardian to gain permission by calling them from our landline.

If you are over 18 photo ID is sufficient.  If you are lucky enough to look under 18, please do not be offended if we ask for ID to prove it.
