The health and safety of our customers is paramount. In order to comply with national body piercing legislation, the following points outline the policy for piercing at Hairhouse:
Government issued Photo ID such as drivers licence, passport etc. must be presented before ANY type of piercing is conducted. We must obtain proof of age to confirm that the person being pierced has reached the relevant age of consent for the piercing procedure.
Under no circumstances will ANY piercing be conducted on anyone under the age of 16 years without a ‘Consent Form’ signed by their parent or guardian. The parent or guardian must sign the consent form, and provide evidence of guardianship (i.e. Medicare card with both names on it) – signing of the consent form must be witnessed by the Body Piercer.
Persons aged 16 years and over do not need parental permission to obtain a piercing except in Western Australia, where the legal age for piercing (other than on the ear – 16 years) without parental consent is 18 years of age.
Under no circumstances will a nipple piercing be conducted on any person under 18 years of age.
Under no circumstances will any piercing service be conducted on the genitals or genital area.
Under no circumstances will a piercing service of any type be filmed or photographed.
Due to OH&S, unless the client is underage they are not permitted to bring anyone into the piercing room with them.
