According to New York State, if you would like to get pierced you will need to have a parent or guardian, sign the following form, and here is a link to the form (PDF) New York State Department of Health consent form (DOH 5072). Now, keep in mind that not all places will go ahead and pierce you even with that form. Some places, just don't want to take on the liability of doing work on persons under 18.

If you are over the age of 18, you will need your wallet. Be prepared to show ID, and make sure that the place you are going to is clean, that the piercer takes the time to clean the work area, cleans the area to be pierced and that the needles that they use or the gun they use, is clean too. Make sure to ask the piercer for post care instructions, so you can make sure it doesn't get infected.
