Reopened for Body Piercing in Long Beach!

After 102 days we’ve finally gotten back to our art, body piercing. You’re probably aware of the new operating protocols body art studios like ours have. If not, click here. We’ve spoken to many piercers around the country in the last month to hear their reopening stories. Piercers are reporting lots of issues getting their […]

Reopening and COVID19 Risk Management

The process of assessing hazards in a business is always important. Under new circumstances, like COVID19, we have to reconsider the standard operating procedures we already have and identify their shortcomings. In body piercing for example, we work with human blood and sharps (needles) so we must work within the parameters of the Bloodborne Pathogens […]

When Can a Piercer Say No to a Piercing?

This article was originally posted on February 5, 2018. It was updated on March 30, 2019. There are plenty of times customers visit a store and leave empty handed.

Why are Rings Harder to Heal a Piercing With?

In the early days of body piercing, a ring (round wire jewelry with a single pressure fit bead) was the most common style of jewelry. This is because the simple design was easy and inexpensive to produce.  Many of the first studios even made their own rings in-house. The downside to this is the subtle variation […]

What is Good Jewelry pt 1

There’s a lot of confusion, even within the piercing industry, about what quality jewelry is. With the exception of glass for large ear lobe piercings, we pierce with the metals steel, titanium, niobium, and gold. If we associate cost with the quality of jewelry, than the only good jewelry is gold. But, if we consider quality […]

“But I can only wear gold”

We love to sell gold jewelry at our studio, that’s a known fact, especially Vanessa and Selene.  We hear clients say they can only wear gold all the time.  Many times it’s by someone wearing other materials in piercings already.  So it’s obvious, they don’t have to wear only gold.  In this situation the client is […]

The Daith Piercing Myth 

If you follow blogs or subscribe to any online news sources that are likely to deliver content that may be related to body art, you’ve likely seen Daith piercings in the last few years. Daith is pronounced “doth.”  A story reappears online every once in a while alleging this piercing is a cure for migraine […]

Do You Need to Remove Your Jewelry for a Short Time?
