Custom Consultation

Not sure what you want? We'll help you decide, and advise on where to get the piercing, plan your future earscape, and answer any questions.

Healthy, Gun-Free Piercing

Our piercer will prep & pierce you with an autoclave-sterilized single-use needle. This process is leaps & bounds better than piercing guns. All of our piercing jewelry is made of implant-grade metals, with flat-back labrets.

An Earbar for Earscaping

You did it, Stud! Congratulate yourself, take a selfie, and start scaping at the earbar. We've got hoops, huggies, studs, charms, and featured designers.



Whether you're getting a single lobe or looking for a stacked ear, our piercers will help you plan your earscape start to finish, and can advise on what piercings and jewelry will work best with your specific anatomy.

We only pierce ears, and for safety and healing purposes, we do up to two piercings at a time.


The total cost of your piercing will be service price + jewelry price + tax. No surprises.

We're cashless.
