Tyler has an emphasis on placing the piercing where it can accentuate the natural flow and highlight the anatomy. The process and techniques applied during the piercing process are matched to each clients unique anatomy ensuring a proper fit for the healing process. All initial piercings will have longer bars/posts to accommodate swelling during the healing process and may need to be downsized 2-3 weeks after the initial piercing.
Fine jewelry is the prime focus for Tyler and quality is the most important aspect to ensure smooth healing and longevity for a fresh piercing. Tyler only uses implant grade titanium, glass and various karat gold (14k-18k). These materials have high levels of biocompatibility and ensure the smoothest healing process. No outside jewelry will be used/installed in the studio. *Not offering tongue, smiley/frowny or genital piercings.
Walk-ins are always welcome, scheduling is generally reserved for curation projects and consultations for larger projects.
$30 flat piercing fee per individual piercing + cost of jewelry.
$20 Maintenance setup fee (jewelry removals, cleaning, etc.)
A non refundable deposit of $50 is required to book curation consultations and will be applied to the overall price of the project.
Tyler recommends cleaning the piercing twice daily with sterile wound wash on either gauze or a Q-Tip. Over cleaning can lead to more irritation and affect the healing process. Do not submerge the piercing in any standing water, baths, pools, hot springs, etc. Those are breeding grounds for potential infections and not worth the risk. Do not twist or turn the jewelry, that’s outdated advice and only adds to the healing time by breaking the fragile tissue that is trying to heal. Don’t sleep on the piercing, this can cause migration and irritation. If the piercing swell and feels irritated a soak in a hot shower letting the water run over the piercing can help significantly reduce the swelling and bring some relief to the area.
Less is much more in the case of healing piercings, keep it clean, leave it alone and the healing process will be a much more enjoyable time. Once the swelling subsides, 2-3 weeks after the initial piercing, downsizing may be necessary if there’s excessive room on the bar/post. Not downsizing when necessary can create issues with irritation and migration.
