How much does a piercing cost?

Our piercings are priced as a piercing service fee plus the cost of jewelry. 

Because we offer such a wide array of jewelry selections the prices for jewelry can vary quite a bit, but jewelry for most piercings will start around $35-40. 

The average fee for a single, basic piercing will sit between $35-$40 

Basic changes will start at $15.

 If you have questions about specific piercing fees, feel free to contact your studio!

Are your piercings walk-in only or appointment based?

We take walk-ins whenever time allows, but an appointment will guarantee our piercers are available to see you when you come in. You can book your appointment at this link. If you would like to come in and browse jewelry or chat about options you are welcome to stop by any time!

When do you typically stop taking piercings?


We currently offer piercings by appointment 12-8 seven days a week. We do occasionally have same day appointments available. Feel free to call and check with us about how the day is looking!

What are the age restrictions when it comes to piercings?

Age requirements vary between our Northampton and Boston studios. Please consult our booking page or contact the studio with any questions about age requirements. 

* Note that any minor getting pierced must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and must have proper identification and documentation.

What ID is required for a piercing service/jewelry change?

18+ ID Requirements: If you are over the age of 18 we need a valid, government issued photo ID. This can be a license, permit, passport, or government ID card (NO student IDs or social security cards).

Minor ID Requirements: *IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ. Improper ID means we will not be permitted to pierce and your deposit will be forfeited*

Regulations differ between studios. In both, the minor must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. The parent must have a government issued photo ID. 

CAMBRIDGE: The /only/ ID we are able to accept for minors in Cambridge is their birth certificate. If the last names of the parent or guardian do not match, we need documentation providing proof of guardianship as well as the ID’s listed above. If you have any doubts, please call us to confirm! Unfortunately, documents like a drivers permit, school ID, and passport are not accepted as identification in Cambridge for minors. 

NORTHAMPTON: The minor must have a government issued photo ID (license, permit, passport) or birth certificate.

Does the piercing fee include jewelry?

The cost of jewelry is separate from our piercing fees and ranges depending on the style required for the piercing you’re getting and piece that you choose! 

Basic implant grade titanium jewelry starts at $30/piece for hoops, $40-50 for barbells, and $40 for studs, and ranges depending on the piece. Solid gold jewelry starts at $70/piece, and varies widely depending on the piece. 

If you have further questions about any jewelry pricing before booking an appointment, please feel welcome to give our studios a call, email us, or browse through our webstore! Please keep in mind, our webstore is ever growing and does not list all of our jewelry.

Both studios offer jewelry shopping only appointments and the option to add additional jewelry shopping time to a piercing appointment for extra time to shop as well.

Can I be pierced with my own jewelry?

Because we need to guarantee proper fit, metal quality, surface finish, and sterility to give you the safest experience possible we do not pierce with any outside jewelry. We have a ton of great options to choose from and can help you pick something you love when you come.

Can I return my jewelry if I no longer like it?

Body jewelry is non refundable and cannot be returned for any reason. We are happy to talk with you about your choice, or even insert your jewelry for you so we can make sure you are getting the exact fit and style you are hoping for!

Can I go swimming with a new piercing?

It is best not to swim with a new piercing as contaminants from the body of water can affect your healing process. Some piercings such as navels and nipples can be covered with a waterproof bandage during healing, other piercings should not be submerged during the healing process.

What are things to expect during the healing process?

Tenderness, bleeding, bruising, swelling, crusting, and itching are all normal during the healing process. If you have any questions or concerns about how a piercing is healing don’t hesitate to contact us!

If I think my piercing is infected should I check with a piercer or see a Doctor?

If you are having any issues with a piercing it is best to come in so we can take a look. Once we see the piercing in person we can decide what the best course of action is to get things headed in the right direction!

Can I special order jewelry?

Yes please! We would love to help you design your dream setup. We require a 50% deposit due at the time of ordering. Deposits for special orders are non-refundable. Please ask us about turnaround time for orders, as this can vary widely between companies.


Do you accept walk-ins or do I need to book an appointment?

We are currently operating by appointment only aside from advertised walk-in days, which we announce on our social media pages.

To inquire about same day availability please give us a call at your preferred studio or send us an email. Thanks!

What types of tattoos can be done on a walk-in basis?

The most common walk-in tattoos we do are generally around the size of the palm of your hand or smaller and relatively uncomplicated. If an artist has a large portion of the day open they may be able to do more complex tattoos on a walk-in basis, so it’s best to email or call with some details about what you would like and we can tell you if we have time to accommodate you. Good info to include is subject matter, size, and location.

What is required to get tattooed?

A valid photo ID proving you’re over the age of 18, and an idea of what you would like to get. We can use an image that you have as reference or draw something up just for you based on your idea!

Should I email the shop or the artists if I want to get a tattoo?

It depends! Some artists have their contact info posted on our website or their personal Instagram pages. That’s a good place to start.

If you can’t find that info, or don’t have a specific artist in mind feel free to contact our shops:

Main St. Northampton - 413-587-0004. luckysnoho@gmail.com

King St. Northampton - 413-570-4713. luckystattoostudios@gmail.com

Boston - 617-945-0317. luckysboston@gmail.com

We’d be glad to get you connected with an artist!

Feel free to email with an idea and our front end staff will help you choose the right artist for your project.

What is to be expected during the healing process for a tattoo?

Soreness, tenderness, peeling, and itching are all normal during the tattoo process. If you have any questions about how your tattoo is healing don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

Do I have to leave a deposit when booking an appointment? If I decide to cancel do I get my deposit back?

We require a deposit for all tattoo appointments. The deposit ensures that in the event you don’t show up to your appointment, the artist is compensated for the time spent preparing for your appointment (drawing, setup, etc.)

As long as you show up on time to your appointment, your deposit will be subtracted from the cost of your tattoo.

If you cancel your appointment, show up 20 or more minutes late, or reschedule within 48 hours of your appointment, your deposit will be forfeited. You are allowed to reschedule your appointment in advance of the 48 hour window without forfeit.

How long should I expect to wait for a response when I email with a specific artist?

This varies! Some artists answer emails daily and you’ll likely hear back within 24-48 hours. Others organize their workflow differently and have specific days for answering emails and may take a bit longer. If you don’t hear back within a week, send a follow up email or contact the shop to make sure that artist is currently taking appointments.

We definitely understand that you’re excited to hear back from us and will be sure to get back to you as soon as we can!

Do you have a minimum or an hourly rate?

We do not have a set rate across the board. Some artists have an hourly rate tattoo and some price by the piece. Different variables (e.g.- size, location, level of detail) will affect pricing as well. Feel free to reach out to the studio with pricing questions about your specific tattoo ideas, we are happy to provide a quote for you.

Can I go swimming with a new tattoo?

Unfortunately, no! Keep that sweet new ink out of the water during healing. Showers are fine, but you do not want to submerge your new tattoo. You can ask your artist about recommended times to avoid swimming as different tattoos will have different healing times.

Is there anything I need to do prior to being tattooed?

Get rest, drink plenty of water, and have a meal with some carbs and protein. Make sure you bring your ID and comfy clothes don’t hurt either.
