Cancellation and Refund Policy
The purpose of asking you to make a deposit for the initial piercing fee of $100 is to ensure that you show up. I travel from outside of the country to pierce and I've found that those who have paid have a very high rate of coming in for appointments. Unfortunately, those who do not pre-pay have shown a distressing propensity for forgetfulness....
If your cancellation is last minute (so I can't refill your slot), then your deposit is forfeit.
If you cancel well in advance (2 weeks or more prior to your appointment date) then you may be eligible for a full refund.
However, if our correspondence has been extensive (I've sent you 5 messages or more) that means I have devoted an extended period of time to you. in that case, I will either refund 80% of your piercing fee, and retain 20% for work already rendered.* Or, you have the option to keep your full payment on account for a future piercing visit anywhere I'll be working. This does not have an expiration date.
*The $20. serves as compensation for my expertise and the time I spend corresponding with you to answer all of your questions, possibly evaluate photos of your anatomy, to set up and confirm your appointment, and then to make a refund.
Thank you for your understanding! I look forward to piercing you soon.
