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!

Piercing - Eyebrow
Brow piercing

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.

Piercing - Flats
I absolutely love my new

I absolutely love my new piercing. I am so happy that she convinced me to get the Flat instead of the forward helix like I planned. I cant wait until I can get the other two, to make it a triple flat. The jewelry I purchased with it is amazing as well, I love the color selection.
