That's a hard no.


Oregon law requires all piercing jewelry to be handled with concern and care for your wellbeing.


Due to quality control, sterilization laws, sizing, and liability concerns, we are unable to use any used jewelry for initial piercings.


Thankfully, we maintain a highly curated and extensive collection of quality, ethically sourced jewelry that accommodates many price ranges.

Q: Can I be pierced with ring style jewelry right away?
Q: Can I bring a friend with me?
Q: Can I schedule a group piercing event?
Q: How many piercings can I get in one sitting?
Q: How long will my piercing take to heal?

These are general estimates, as each will depend on your particular body type and healing time frames. Children will also heal at a slower rate, as they have a harder time keeping their piercings clean/undisturbed.


Please do not change your jewelry without receiving an "all clear" from your piercer. Downsizing your posts is also important once the piercing is healed.


It is also tempting to ask your friends or to Google cleaning and healing advice. Please do not do this. Trust the guidance from your piercer and if you have concerns, call the studio.

All sales are final. Oregon law prohibits studios from accepting jewelry returns once the item has left our studio. Please carefully read all jewelry descriptions before purchasing.


If you are unsure of the sizing needed, please contact our studio for assistance prior to purchasing. Almost ALL of our jewelry does not come with the post required for installation, which needs to be included in your purchase for a nominal fee.


Thanks to our high standards in partnership with jewelry manufacturers, all jewelry sold by Agave in Bloom comes with a manufacturer's lifetime warranty that covers defects. All repairs will be handled directly with the manufacturer (not through Agave in Bloom).
