Body Piercing Information

Find information about our piercing age limits, prices, and the types of ID we accept.

Piercing Prices
Our piercing prices are always extremely competitive and many of our stores run promotions regularly in order to reduce the cost even further. All of our piercings include a piece of titanium, PVC gold or PVC black jewellery. The best way to find the most accurate price for your piercing in your local area is to contact your nearest Blue Banana store.
Age Restrictions
Blue Banana is the largest body piercer in Europe and as such, we have a responsibility to act ethically at all times. Therefore, while there is no specific legal control over the age at which body piercing can be offered in the UK, we have our own strict professional practice guidelines and we have set our own piercing age restrictions, which you can see below. If you appear younger than the age required for your desired piercing, you will be asked to prove your age through a form of photographic identification.
Accepted Forms of ID
The forms of ID we accept include a driving license, passport and cards featuring the PASS logo. No other forms of ID are accepted. Failure to present the required ID will mean you will not be pierced.
Parental Consent
For some piercings, parental consent is required IN PERSON. A parent or legal guardian will need to accompany their child to the store. Consent cannot be written, emailed or given over the phone. It must be given in person.
Contact A Piercing Studio Or Piercer
Have a question? We'd recommend contacting a store to get the answers to all the questions you have regarding a piercing. Please find your local store in our Store Locator for all the contact information.
