I.D. & Age Policy

Here at London Piercing Clinic we kindly ask you to bring a form of photo identification when coming in for a piercing. It is illegal for us to pierce any person under 16 years of age, unless a parent or legal guardian (with proof of it) is present, but please note that we DO NOT pierce anyone under the age of 14.

If you are under 16 you will have to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. You will also need to bring a form of photo ID, your parent/guardian will also need to bring their own form of identification. You may use an 11-15 Oyster Card supported by birth certificate in the case that you have not got any other form of identification. If the child and their parent have different surnames you should also bring a birth certificate to support the relevant ID.

If you are a legal guardian you will need to bring documentation stating that you are the legal guardian.

Photo ID will be requested at ages 16-21. If you look fairly young – Don’t be offended if we ask for ID.

Genital piercings, female nipples and Dermal Implants strictly over 18 (parental consent would not work in this case).

  • Passport
  • Drivers Licence/Provisional
  • 16+ Oyster Card
