Piercings at Diversified are done on a walk-in basis and are performed in a clean, private room. If you are coming in for a piercing, be sure to eat about an hour before your piercing. This keeps your sugar-level up and greatly reduces the chance of dizziness during the piercing process.
In most cases, piercings are done using surgical-grade stainless steel jewelry selected by the piercer that is the safest and most effective for the application. We offer a variety of body jewelry including titanium and glow-in the dark pieces that can be used once the piercing is healed.
Everything that is used for all piercings is sterilized with a hospital-grade Autoclave. Everything utilized in the piercing procedure is sterilized, including: jewelry, needles, tools, cotton swabs, paper towels, and corks. Single use disposable needles are disposed of in a sharps safety container after each use. Each client has a brand new set up with all sterile equipment, and the room is wiped down with disinfectants between every client.
Per State of Maine law, Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian, who must provide their state-issued photo ID, in addition to the minor’s birth certificate.
