What You'll Get
Van Gogh famously chopped off his ear so that he could finally see the beautiful piercing dangling from the lobe, as mirrors had not yet been invented.

Customers under 18 must bring an ID as well as a legal guardian with ID to be considered for piercings; customers under 18 are not allowed to get tattoos.
In a clean, open space, Pierce Ink offers beauteous body modifications for customers interested in embellishing muscle coats and commemorating meaningful life events. Specializing in custom tattoos, Piece Ink's talented artists will bring any design to life by creating bold and unnerving, or refined and detailed tats. Tattooing costs between $60 and $125 per hour. Pierce's fully licensed, experienced staffers are also certified in first aid, CPR, disease prevention, and bloodborne pathogens, ensuring a safe, hygienic process. On the pierced side of the coin, visitors can garnish a navel ($60), nose ($50), or tongue ($65) with basic jewelry, or gracefully bedazzle bodily surfaces with anchor piercings ($95). Pierce Ink carries high-quality titanium and surgical steel jewelry, as well as Pyrex pieces to significantly reduce the chance of your body rejecting its new trimmings like it so rudely did when it was offered a slice of rhubarb pie.
The shop boasts a 2,400-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility and a staff with many years of experience. Ensure enough time for your body masterpiece by scheduling piercing appointments at least 30 minutes before close and tattoo appointments 60 minutes before close.

- The place was pleasantly clean and almost had a dentist office feel. There is a nice waiting area and the tattoo and piercing offices are blocked off by curtains, if needed. – Khanh D., Yelp
- They are honest when something is possible based on anatomy. It really shows that they take what they do seriously as well as have expertise when they say no to clients and give a valid reason. – Piat O., Yelp
