Happy Saturday!
Yes, it’s slightly snowing… Yes, we are OPEN!
See you all for your scheduled appointments 🙂
Give yourself lots of time to get downtown!


Hey all! Downtown is CRAZY BUSY today, so if you have an appointment please ensure you give yourself lots
and lots and LOTS (did I mention lots?) of time to get downtown and park. Thanks!


Happy Saturday, everyone! 🙂
Just an FYI, JP is fully booked for piercing and unable to sneak people in between for jewelry help for the remainder of the day.
He will be available for you on Tuesday!


Wondering what to get your weird tattooed friend this holiday season?  We can help…

Tues, Nov 29 to Thurs, Dec 15: $130 for a $150 gift certificate!
(Limit 2 per person)

AND! If you are that weird tattooed friend – feel free to share this post so everyone who loves you knows what you want! *mention this post to get the deal! 🙂



It’s getting cold out! Starting NOW (and throughout December) if you have any gently used coats that you’re not using, please bring them into the shop so we can donate them to Peers and the Mustard Seed. They will be put to good use 🙂
Please go through your closet and if you have one (or more) you can give to a new home, bring them to the shop and we will make sure they are donated!
(PS: women’s coats are greatly needed this year)
