Got my first piercing done by Mandy, been getting tattooed for years and wasn’t sure what to expect with my first piercing, but Mandy made the process super smooth and easy and it was over before I knew it and she did a great job explaining the aftercare process etc. I’ll definitely be going back to see her and recommend anyone to book her.

Came with my oldest to get a labret and my nose pierced. Excellent service. Clean. As a nurse, it's the first thing I look at

This was my first time getting a tattoo. Chi Town and my artist, Agata, did a really good job of accommodating my ideas into the reality of tattoo making. It was very important to me to have certain aspects of my tattoo to honor my deceased mother and Agata helped me with that every step of the way. She went out of her way to schedule me outside of store hours because that was my only availability on the very specific day I wanted my tattoo: my 18th Birthday! Thank you Chi Town and thank you Agata! Your floral designs are spectacular and you found a life-long customer!

I have been here at least like four times. And I will be back! I’ve been seen by multiple piercers but mostly Naiya, she’s wonderful!! Everybody here brings a supportive and calming energy to the entire experience. I tell all my friends to come here for piercings. I couldn’t recommend it more!
