Dear Studs,

Since we reached out two weeks ago to announce our Studs store closures, the global pandemic has worsened in NYC. We know everyone has been affected by this crisis, and we hope you are safe and healthy. 

To keep our customers and employees safe and to continue to support our government and health officials as they work to contain the spread of COVID-19, we’re following the directive of Governor Cuomo and keeping our 12 Prince St. and Hudson Yards stores closed until non-essential businesses can safely resume operations.  

We’re canceling all future appointments and emailing each customer individually. All prior appointments will be given first priority to book a Studs piercing when we reopen. We are assessing the situation frequently and we will reach out to you to reschedule when we have a confirmed re-open date. 

We can’t wait to see you back at Studs, but in the meantime is open for all your earring and earscaping needs. Right now we’re offering 20% off sitewide with 20% of sales going to Food Bank For New York City, a wonderful organization ensuring that New Yorkers continue to have access to much-needed meals amidst the public health crisis impacting our city. 

As always, please reach out with any questions at

We lobe you,

Anna Harman & Lisa Bubbers
