It took me just about 2 years to come back for more pain lol!
In love with my new piercing and purchased some cool body jewelry before leaving. Matt made the process easy and answered all of my questions!
Would definitely recommend this spot!

Very clean and professional. Matt is an amazing piercer and I would recommend him to anyone.
When I got my piercing I almost fainted and he was very supportive and offered me water. He made sure I felt comfortable before leaving his shop and I really appreciated it.

Matt is FANTASTIC. I did a ton of research before heading into Ancient Arts to have my nostril pierced. I was blown away by the experience. Clean, comfortable – Matt knows his stuff backward and forward and, most importantly, loves what he does. The piercing itself was quick and easy and done with very high quality jewelry. I’ve never healed so quickly or so painlessly. Best piercing experience I’ve ever had, hands down.

Matt is great! Incredibly professional and great to talk to. I highly recommend getting your piercings done here. You will be in good hands. He will answer any questions you have knowledgeably. I felt so comfortable and happy throughout the whole process.
