minor policy

If you are under 18, we require a parent or legal guardian (with proper paper work) to accompany the minor. Both the minor and the parent need to have photo ID’s in addition to a copy of a birth certificate or guardianship certificate. The parent needs to be present for all procedures including piercing, installing and downsizing.

Infants will be pierced by appointment on Wednesdays and Thursdays only. For infant piercing, it is ideal for the infant to be 1-6 months old, by 8 months infants are finding their hands which can make it challenging for healing. Its not suggested to pierce between 6 months – 3 years. Children under 6 years old will be done by appointment only on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please call to book appointments.

COVID 19 protocols

As always, safety is our top priority. The mask mandate has been lifted in Marin County, so we are not requiring masks for our clients. Below was our protocol during the COVID-19 mandate and were in place for everyone’s protection. All of our piercers have been Vaccinated and will still be wearing a mask:

  • Walk-ins welcome. Appointments preferred and prioritized.
  • Properly fitted face coverings are required for anyone entering the studio. We will be wearing masks at all times and eye covering when needed.
  • We may ask you some questions about recent travel or any symptoms you may be experiencing. We will not allow entry to anyone with any COVID-19 symptoms, or with any out of state travel in the past 2 weeks.
  • You will be offered hand sanitizer upon entry, for your safety and that of those around you.
  • PLEASE avoid touching your face or piercings during your visit. We understand that a lot of people don’t mean to or may not even realize they are doing so, but by touching your jewelry/piercings while in the studio, any germs that may be on you will spread to any surface or object you come into contact with. While our staff takes exhaustive measures to maintain a clean, sanitary environment, by not touching your jewelry, you are helping us to eliminate the potential for cross-contamination and the spread of germs and COVID-19.
  • If you are bringing in jewelry you have previously worm, please bring it in a a container or baggie. It is vital that we do not have previously worn jewelry come into contact with any surface, case or person in our studio for the same reasons outlined above. If you do not have a container, please notify one of our staff so they can properly assist you with getting your jewelry into a safe container while providing you some hand sanitizer.
  • We also ask that when visiting Nomad Body Piercing, that you do not touch any jewelry that one of our staff has removed from the case to show you. Our staff will be more than happy to assist you with getting a closer look at any of our jewelry options and will be ready to help you determine if a specific piece will be best for you.
  • While in the studio or waiting outside, you must practice social distancing to the greatest degree possible. Please maintain 6 feet of space between yourself and others.
  • You will be asked to not place personal belongings on any surfaces in the studio. Please bring in only what you can carry.
