I love the professional and friendly staff here! I've had three piercings done here, all went perfectly, and they made sure to answer all my questions about jewellery and gauges. They also have lovely pieces to buy!

Been coming here since I was 12. The piercers here have better bedside manner than a lot of doctors! They are so informative and kind before, during, and after the piercing process. Personally, they always reduce my anxiety even when I'm super nervous about the piercing. They're never pushy with selling me the most expensive item, they always seem to just want to make sure I'm absolutely comfortable with everything. I really can't reccomend this place to enough people! If you're looking for any kind of piercing, THIS is the place to go. Not only are the employees wonderful, but the prices are very reasonable considering how high quality their work is. A huuuge thanks to Kristina who did an amazing piercing for me yesterday but I was too busy passing out and didn't get a chance to thank her!!
