Body Gems

Body Gems is a family business that was founded in 1994. The Collins family has been in the jewelry business since the mid 1970s. The vision of Body Gems came from Jack Collins who witnessed a line out the door of a local piercing studio in 1994. Jack noticed the type of metal they were using in everyone’s piercings and told his son Scott that they should make all of the basic styles in gold. (Light bulb moment)
Scott went on to make Captive Bead Rings, Straight Barbells, Curved Barbells, and Circular Barbells in 14kt gold. Scott began to provide local studios with gold body jewelry. This was not an easy feat as many studios were not interested in gold at that time for piercings. Scott hit the road, knocked on doors and introduced the Body Gems line in person to hundreds of studios across America for a few years in the 90s. He continued to put his heart and soul into the business into the mid 2000’s. Since the beginning, Body Gems has released about 10 catalogs and now ships “Gold Body Jewelry With Style” all over the world.
In 2001 Scott’s youngest son Josh joined the Body Gems team. Since then, Josh has taken over and runs Body Gems with the assistance of his mother/Scott’s wife Cheryl.

This is the second piercing I’ve gotten and the healing has been great and it looks great. The process is very sanitary and fast. Would recommend

I love my stud and the way it sits perfectly on my nose. I was worried about it being too small or not noticable and looking like a pimple but it truly is the perfect fit!

Amazing people in the shop and awesome at their job!!

Amazing service and clean environment

Erika was the most professional yet down to earth person. She made me feel so comfortable about getting my piercing. It was one of the most painless experiences and honestly didn't hurt. I've heard getting your daith pierced hurts like heck. I don't know how she did it but it never once throbbed or got infected. I was even able to sleep on it that very night. I will never go anywhere else for piercings again. Bravo Erika! Bravo!!

Purchased for our 1 year

Purchased for our 1 year old. Piercer was sweet enough to change out her jewelry for free(NOT PIERCE.) staff is always amazing. Her ears are much happier with these than the standard.
