Let’s begin by saying that social anxiety is REAL, and pairing it with the generalized anxiety of putting holes in your own flesh can be a real monster. HTC is one of the few places in this world I can walk into knowing, without even the shadow of a doubt, that I will be treated with respect, patience, and professionalism. I am at ease, and usually laughing, the entire time.
I have been pierced by three different people thus far at HTC, but Richard is my main man. No matter what sort of aftercare/difficult healing pickle I’m in, Richard is my hero. My friends go to Marilyn, and are always jonesing to see her again when they leave. Literally we all just invent new piercings we need because we want to go back and see our favorite people again.
Things to Expect: Expertise, patience, skill, creativity, valuable advice, jokes, respect, and loyal adherence to health and safety precautions.
I will N.E.V.E.R. go to another place for body piercings. If I move, I will save my piercing adventures for when I’m in town to see old friends.
GO TO HTC! YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE MISSING!!
From the first time I came to HTC 20 years ago til now, I will never go anywhere else for my piercings. I always feel super comfortable and confident in not only the pierces knowledge and confidence but the front desk staff as well. I walked in on a busy Saturday night and Nick made sure all of my questions were answered and did not make me feel rushed in any way. He took his time and was very patient. Nicola, my piercer is phenomenal!! She was definitely worth the wait. She immediately started cracking jokes as soon as she took me back which always helps calm nerves. It helped that I wore a shirt with a big skeleton hand flipping you off, to show I was open to the playful banter. Nicola made sure I was aware every step with no surprises. I pierced my rook and I have always had issues with ear piercings healing correctly. This piercing is healing the fasted I’ve ever experienced before! I’m so stoked! I’ll be back very soon. Thank you again.
Love this place! Friendly staff and very clean! I trust HTC to do more piercings in the future ^-^
Marilyn was the absolute best! I got a double cartilage piercing and was pretty nervous/scared but Marilyn was super nice and confident and made me feel so much better with her jokes and goofy/sweet attitude. I honestly had the best experience I could have hoped for and am so glad I went here to get them done! The place was super cute and very clean, she probably changed gloves five times just doing my piercings and really emphasized on cleanliness and after care. I felt well taken care of and safe and am super super happy! 5/5 would 100% recommend going here and seeing Marilyn!
JD was amazing!!!! I get nauseous and almost pass out every time I have to deal with needles. He made sure I had juice to raise my blood sugar when I told him I was starting to get nervous, before we even started. He made me so comfortable that I didn’t freak out at all. I chose a charcoal colored nose ring and after it was put in, I didn’t like how dark it was. He took that one out and helped me choose a lighter color to match my skin tone better and was so nice about the whole thing! I will recommended them to anyone and will definitely come back if I want anymore piercings in the future. Way better than any experience I’ve had before.
Got my nipples done for my 18th birthday and Jacob was so sweet about me being scared and kept telling me I got this! He was so calm about me being scared and let me take as much time needed before I was ready for the second one. Great dude! Great shop! Most definitely coming back!
I am more than impressed and pleased with the entire experience from my first phone call to the actual piercing. I went in wanting a genital piercing but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted. Kevin is amazing!! He took the time to explain the various types of genital piercings and what would work with my particular anatomy. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and passionate about his art. He also wanted to make sure I was completely comfortable with my decision before proceeding with the piercing. I decided to get the vertical clitoral hood. It was virtually painless and Kevin helped me to feel as ease throughout the entire process. It was a refreshingly unique experience and I will definitely be going back!
I went yesterday and was treated with care. The staff was very friendly as well as helpful.
I can’t say enough good things about Marilyn, Ashley and Steph! Had my first facial piercing today, something I’ve wanted to do for years, but was nervous about. These ladies are pros! They explained everything, made me comfortable, and they’re FUN! Absolutely love my piercing. Thank you!!!
The ONLY place to go fir piercing. Extremely sterile, safe and every person there is kind, patient and knowledgeable. I’m kind of a “frequent flyer” and every visit is fun and something I look forward to. I love my piercings and every piercer I’ve had is amazing. This is the place to come for any kind of piercing and don’t forget to tip well. They more than deserve it.
ok, this place is seriously awesome. came in to get my lip pierced in december and i was super scared.
richard really made me feel at ease and even told me some history on piercings; he really knows his shit. i knew i was in good hands. over the next few weeks, i called in and the staff is so nice. it doesn’t matter who i talk to ashley, victoria, probably someone else i’m forgetting (sorry!), every time i call in with an anxious lil baby concern (is my lip supposed to look like this? when can i downsize? IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS???), they always have the time to explain what’s going on and calm my nerves (everything is fine with my lip btw lol).
i’ve stretched my ears back up and have one more size to go to get where i want to be. i’ve stretched before and remember the pain my lil 16 yr old lobes experienced but stretching this time has been an absolute breeze. literally no pain at all. either i’ve got good lobes and there’s been no pain because i’ve stretched before or this place is magical (probably both).
i have other plans for my ears (second ear piercing and rook), re-piercing my belly button, and also have recently decided to get my tongue pierced as well!
in such a little time, i have decided to put all my piercing concerns and wishes into their (well, Richard’s) hands and i know that every time i walk in, i will be taken care of!!!
honestly, the jewelry is a bit pricey.
and honestly, i am willing to pay for it because i know that i am receiving high quality jewelry that will give me no problems and that i can pretty much wear forever!!
i can’t say enough good things about this place and its staff.
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.
keep doin’ whatcha doin’.
Marilyn was fantastic. My septum piercing went so quick and easy with no pain. I felt light headed a couple minutes later and she let me hang out on the table and gave me apple juice. Great place!
Well I have the thoughts about a P.A.for about 3 to 5 years and I finally got the courage to do it and wow not so bad as Dana said “it’s a bit spicy” don’t be discouraged from the P.A. for pain it was not that bad for me but everybody is differant.
I am in the area visiting family and I heard about HTC for a daith piercing. I had been wanting to get my daith done because of the benefits it has had with migraines; I have struggled with migraines for several years and nothing has helped. It is my first of this type of piercing and needless to say I was very nervous about getting it.
When I went into the shop today it was clean and a very friendly enviroment. The customer service was fantastic and the facility had a calming vibe. I was pierced by Kevin and he was so sweet, cool, and personable. He made the experience so easy for me and he helped calm my nerves. I had so much fun at the shop that I have made my decision to make the out-of-state trek over to HTC for all of my future piercings.
To say I am impressed with the quality of service at HTC is an understatement. I very highly recomend this amazing establishment and the wonderful people that make it the beautiful place that it is.
My brother and I both went in for daith’s today and Jacob pierced us both. He was amazing. My brother is quite the needle-phobe and Jacob was patient and let him rest as much as needed after the piercing. Jacob explained everything clearly and made the whole process comfortable and easy. The place was super clean, everyone was wonderful and we are both happy with our piercings!
Couldn’t ask for a better experience! Place was super clean, everyone was super friendly and helpful, my piercer Nicola was so fun and nice, she really helped calm my nerves 🙂 love this place and will be returning for all my piercings!!!
I came in on my birthday this last weekend to get my septum pierced, and normally my piercer is Dana (he pierced my nostril for me 2 times) but this time Nicola pierced me. I could not be happier with her service and how much I love my new piercing. I bled a a lot and she did everything she could to ensure I was comfortable and loved my new piercing. She is an incredible soul and so great talking to. I recommend this place over any other and will only ever have piercings done here.
There are not enough good things to say about HTC!this is the only place I go for piercings but to be honest I’ve mainly done lobe and gauging. I recently got my daith pierced. I’m crazy about having my ears clean and dispite my best efforts it got CRAZY infected. I’d never had a piercing puss and I was within a second of taking it out. I called in and WOW what a difference! I was assured that crusty ear and some discharge is normal and to keep soaking it but basically leave it alone. You were sooo right HTC. My over cleaning was causing my issues and if I’d just done as told… Anywaaay. You guys rock it. When you do what your piercer says you’ll heal up so much better than if you think you know what you’re doing. Long live HTC
