*only available at Costa Mesa location

Piercings are on a walk-in basis only, so feel free to come in at your convenience! We accept the last piercing an hour before we close. You're more than welcome to call us on your way to see if there's much of a wait for a piercing. Please keep in mind that we want to give you the best experience possible, and sometimes that takes time.  Be sure to have a valid government issued ID with you (license, passport, state ID), and have something to eat beforehand. For piercings on a minor under 18 years old, please see our requirements at the bottom of this page.

 "How much will it cost?"

We stock HUNDREDS of jewelry options for every piercing we do, so the cost will ultimately depend on the jewelry you choose. Once you're here at the studio, we can go over the exact cost depending on your jewelry choice!


Your safety comes first at Outer Limits. We utilize aseptic technique and state of the art technology to sterilize your jewelry and any components we use for your piercing. For every single procedure we perform, jewelry is sterilized in our Statim autoclave right before the piercing. This takes as little as 7 minutes, allowing us time to fill out paperwork and go over any questions you may have. Every cycle in the Statim is accompanied by a sterility indicator strip, which shows the contents and jewelry have been sterilized properly. The Statim is also spore-tested weekly (sending a test strip to a lab) to ensure proper function!


Now, for one of the most common questions we get: Does it hurt? Yes, of course! However, a piercing is a minimal pinch for less than a second, but a majority of people we pierce say it was much easier than they were expecting. We like to direct your focus away from the pain, and instead towards how awesome you're going to look afterwards!

We have VERY STRICT policies we adhere to at all times when it comes to piercing clients who are under the age of 18. These policies are in place for your safety.


If any of the requirements are not met when you check-in for your piercing, we will not be able to provide you with services - so please read our policies carefully before coming into the shop.


We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
