Read some of our reviews

“I went to Matt to get my septum pierced. My wife got her belly button done and my ten year old daughter, who has a debilitating fear of needles, went for her ears. Matt and Anna couldn’t have been more friendly, patient, professional and kind.

We were thrilled with their service and will most definitely be returning. I can’t recommend them enthusiastically enough. Seriously, if you need something pierced . . . go here.”

“They ere really friendly and got the piercings done quickly. I’m not a hardcore piercer so I usually get really nervous in piercing parlors but they were super friendly and not intimidating at all. If I want another piercing, I’ll definitely go to them.”

- Sophia G.

“It took me 17 years to get the nerves to get my nose pierced . . . And I am so glad this is where I chose to go. Matt was amazing. He was funny smart, knowledgeable and had a way of making me feel perfectly at ease. The shop was immaculate, and he took his time with all of his patrons . . . A fact that I greatly appreciate. If you’re in the market for a piercing, you can’t go wrong with Ancient Arts.”
