Got questions about piercings? Lynn's got answers. 

Help! I've got a bump on my piercing!

Oh no! First, don't panic. Bumps happen on piercings, and while they aren't ideal, they also aren't the end of the world. If you want more information about these bumps check out this blog post here which break down how these bumps work and happen. From there, do you have a reputable piercer you trust? Reach out to them! If you don't, I can be contacted via email or instagram to assist with these issues. 

How do I find a good piercer?

We've got a whole blog post here that break down how to research for a good piercer, and also how to research different piercings! 

How much should I tip my piercer?

Tips are never expected, always appreciated. Please don't stress about tipping, and simply choose an amount that's comfortable for you. Some clients tip percentage like you might on food/hair/nails, some tip a flat rate. Some are generous and leave large tips, and some are creative and bring food, drinks, cat toys, or things they've made! Some clients leave good reviews, send thank you cards. Some clients aren't able to tip at all, and that's ok too. Honestly, at least here at Icon, we are just excited to pierce you. <3

How do I get pierced by Lynn?

 Lynn is currently offering under mask services, however advanced work must be scheduled through her directly. This includes large gauge initial septums, septum corrections, heavily deviated septum, high nostrils, cheeks, paired tongue piercings, and dahlias. You can submit the contact form on this site or message her on Instagram to schedule for these services. 

Is Lynn appointment only?

Icon does accept walk-ins but they are first come first served and not guaranteed. If you are looking to see Lynn specifically please book an appointment, as there is no guarantee we can accommodate for you as a walk in. 

Does Lynn ever travel to pierce?

Yes! Lynn loves guesting, and pre covid traveled often to pierce with friends at their studios. As things become safer she will resume traveling occasionally, so stay tuned here and on their social media for any announcements about guest spots. 

What is the fee to have Lynn help/look at my piercing?

There is never any charge for Lynn to help with these questions or issues, and she does answer every single message (it just sometimes takes a while!) That said, if anyone wants to tip Lynn for their time, their Venmo is @Lynn-Loheide

 Will Lynn apprentice me to pierce?

Lynn is currently not taking any apprentices. They believe firmly a piercer should have 10-15 years of experience before taking an apprentice, and be fully prepared to teach and train someone throughly. There are may things Lynn is still learning and working on, including being a good teacher. That said, it is likely sometime in the next 2-4 years they will consider taking on an apprentice.

I am a piercer/apprentice, can I come shadow Lynn? 

Yes! Lynn, and Icon, love having folks out to shadow and learn. Our doors are always open to helping other piercers learn, grow, and become the best they can be! You can email Lynn at to set up shadowing!
