Body piercing honors a historic adornment practice, allows for greater personal expression, and helps humans perfect their Christmas tree impersonations. Ornament yourself with today’s deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of piercing or jewelry at Black Hole Body Piercing.
With 18 years of experience, this female-owned-and-operated shop has earned honors as the best place to get pierced from Reno News and Review readers for 15 years running. Owner and head adorner Angela leads an experienced staff of metal-detector-averse artists who pierce ears, belly buttons, noses, and more in either private or group-viewing rooms ($30–$40 not including jewelry). Committed to safe standards, Black Hole employs only single-use needles and participates in self-governing groups such as the Association of Professional Piercers, and has also helped Washoe County adopt new regulations for piercing.
Piercees can choose from a wide selection of U.S.-made gold or implant-grade surgical-steel jewelry ($3–$300, with most from $15–$90). Small to large nostril screws display diamonds, ruby, sapphire, onyx, Mick Jagger, and other precious or semi-precious stones. Black Hole also sells ornate plugs carved from buffalo horn, bone, wood, and bamboo; sterile saline solution with no additives; and other alternative aftercare products.
