I am under 18 and want to get a piercing done, what do you require?
The one exception to this rule is in regards to ear piercings, Parental consent is not required to pierce any part of the ear as per the Manitoba By-law. This will be determined on an individual basis by Soul Survivors Body Art.
Do you pierce babies ears?
We do not pierce babies ears but will pierce the ears of children starting at the age of ten. This is done at the piercer’s discretion.
Do you accept walk ins for piercings?
Yes, however walk ins are on a first come first serve basis and any existing appointments take priority. We will always do our best to accommodate walk ins, however, this will require you to be flexible with your time. Certain piercings may not be available for walk ins due to their nature, complexity, and time required. To inquire more about our walk in availability please call or message us at (204) 284-1173
Can I bring in my own jewellery to be pierced with?
No. We only use our own jewelry for the initial piercing for two main reasons, all of our jewellery is pre-packaged and autoclave sterilized and is safely ready to be used. When we use our own jewelry we are aware of the specific material that we are using and use only the highest grades of implant grade surgical steel/titanium that facilitate the quickest healing process.
Can I have my initial piercing done with a ring?
Yes you can, however, you must be 18 to choose a ring for your piercing, and we would still encourage you to consider using a stud as this style of jewellery generally promotes a quicker healing process.
How long does it take for a piercing to fully heal?
Piercing healing times vary based on the piercing and the care of the client, but typically can range anywhere from 6 weeks up to 1 year. This can be determined for each client in relation to the area of the body, and the choice of jewellery.
How long before I can work out?
I can’t get my jewellery out, what should I do?
The jewellery we use at Soul Survivors Body Art is mainly threaded or pressure fit, we put these pieces on very tightly so as to reduce the risk of the jewellery loosening or falling out. You can book an appointment or try for walk in availability and we will remove it for you.

Can I bring a friend with me?
Can I get a piercing if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
We prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients. Therefore, we do not offer any piercing procedures to individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding. These conditions may affect the healing process and pose potential risks to both the individual and the baby. We recommend waiting until after pregnancy and breastfeeding before considering a piercing. If you have any concerns or specific questions, please consult with your healthcare provider before scheduling a piercing appointment.
