The price of a nape piercing varies depending on the shop but on average runs around $50. As with any specialty piercing, it is not advisable to sacrifice quality for a cheaper price on a nape piercing.
Nape piercings have a high rate of rejection if not properly placed and measured, so it is important to gauge the professionalism of a studio before having any piercings done. The healing time for a nape piercing is between 10 and 12 months but can increase if there are any complications with the piercing. These complications can be minimized with proper care, which often includes purchasing cleaning products that add to the final cost.
