If you are in need of ANYTHING, come here. To start off, Greg was amazing. He was such good help, knew all of his material, and had a great store for all your necessary purchases. While I was here I went to two other places, but nothing beats High Hope. 100% recommend!
professional body piercing in newport rhode island
I really enjoy the staff at High Hopes/Stix and Studs. I've done the majority of my piercings with their main piercer and he always takes his time and he's very gentle. I got my rook and my industrial done the other day and I couldn't be more happy with the results. I originally thought about getting my daith done but he assured me that because I have a thicker ear the daith may be unsafer to do and I may be at higher risk of infection. This was very good information for me to know. He's also very honest and wasn't afraid to tell me that my piercings were in sensitive places and that they'd probably hurt. My rook piercing was bleeding badly and it got on my shirt, I told him it was fine, but he cleaned the blood stain off at the store which was very nice. I'd recommend Stix and Studz to anyone looking for some cool new piercings. The service is pleasant from beginning to end and all of the staff is friendly. No complaints about this experience. Thanks!
Absolutely loved my experience here. I got my belly button pierced and felt very comfortable with Greg. You can tell he knows what he’s doing and puts his customers first. Definitely will be back again!
Very knowledgeable and professional and makes sure you're comfortable the whole way through. Already made my next appointment. Love this place ❤️
Great place with a lot of options to choose from! Beautiful pieces as well as outstanding service right when you walk through the door. The man who was working was super helpful and deserves recognition at the least!Visit and see for yourself because it’s totally worth stopping in even just to look around at all of the beautiful glass !!!!!!
Did a great job on our Helix piercings 🙂
These two strippers recommended this place to me and I could not have been happier with the service. 5 stars from me!

Got my nipples pierced on the first, Greg did an excellent job and made the experience both comfortable and as painless as possible. He was nice and both professional and fun. Prices are great too. Would highly recommend.
Awesome selection of glass and clothing and very knowledgeable and helpful staff!!!
Great people. Owner Greg and Molly are great. Did amazing job assisting me with my nose piercing emergency. Will definitely be going back.
We've been coming here for our herb and piercing needs and we just love this place! The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable, the owner clearly knows what he is talking about and is invested in getting the job done right. I most recently stopped by to change out my labret piercing and had so much fun looking at their different jewelry pieces. I really appreciated the tips and tricks Greg was able to offer on caring for my piercing and apprentice Macey (spelling) is on her way to providing the top notch service I've come to expect from High Hope. 10/10 would recommend!
Such good vibes lots of love for my people
