The human body is an able canvas for ping-pong welts, Worcestershire smears, and hasty reminders to back up your VHS collection. Customize the gift that is your skin with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of piercing services at Adorn Body Art, with locations in east and west Portland.
Adorn Body Art’s piercers boast an average of 10 years of experience in providing safe, professional body bedazzlement. All the needle-wielding maestros at Adorn’s sanitarily sound studios are members of the Association of Professional Piercers and are also certified in OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Prevention & Infection Control. Capable of everything from basic earlobe piercings ($50–$80) to complex Rube Goldberg bodyworks, these masters of derma dressing can perform a vast array of popular puncturing such as navel piercings ($60–$80), nostril piercings ($40–$50), or lip piercings ($40–$50). To ensure that Adorn's welcoming studios remain both stylish and safe, staffers use traditional steam methods to sterilize all instruments, including the autoclaves, which are spore-tested monthly.
Though today’s deal is not valid for jewelry pieces, guests can still peruse the studio's expansive selection of rings, plugs, and ethnic jewelry ($10–$400), most of which allow clients to convert any epidermal area into a camp-friendly carabiner.
Citysearchers give Adorn Body Art's west location a perfect five stars on average and a 2007 Best of Citysearch award for Best Tattoo/Piercing. Fifteen Yelpers give them a four-star average rating.
Adorn Body Art
Similar to Superman and a telephone booth, people walk into Adorn Body Art with one appearance, and walk out with another. Instead of a cape, they exit brandishing new piercings, customized tattoos, and other creative body modifications. But unlike the man of steel, the customers here need some help with their quick change––and that's where the Adorn staff steps in. The studio's body piercers average more than a decade of experience apiece, and its tattoo artists cover a wide range of styles, from traditional to realistic to delicate. And, to ensure a perfect design each time, these ink gurus compliment their own ideas with hundreds of reference books, each of which was kicked out of the city library for rebelling against the Dewey Decimal System.
