I came into Stix n Studz with an unusual request - needed some body piercings reinserted after they were pulled during a surgery. The experience was great from start to finish. It was easy to make an appt, they took me in right on time, and Greg was wonderful - quick, but gentle and v. conscious of safety and sterility. You're in good hands at Stix n Studz!
Went in today looking around and the piercer was able to help me pick out a new nose ring. He was able to help pick the correct size, because I was unsure. Very quick and easy removal of old stud and application of the new ring. Informed me of all after care to make sure it was clean and taken care of.
10/10 would recommend this place for your piecing needs!
Such a great experience! Greg made the piercing experience so comforting. The store was very clean and Greg made sure to take his time. It was very evident that he cared about his customers. I would 100% go back here for any other piercings in the future!
AMAZING! I got a belly button piercing and I absolutely love it! The owner, Greg, did a great job and talked me through the whole thing. I felt so relaxed and not nervous at all!
Greg made it very comfortable to get my ears pierced. I got my third holes on my lobes + first cartilage. Definitely will be going back for more!
I needed a quick replacement plug for one of mine that fell out while i was on vacation. This place was able to help! I was hoping to find something cheaper, but $30 wasnt too bad! And they had some really cute options

My friends and I were on girls weekend in Newport and came across High Hopes. We all were privileged enough to be pierced by the G.O.A.T — Greg, of course. He was so professional, knowledgeable, pleasant, fun etc etc! We loved him!!! See you soon Greg ( . ) ( . )

They were professional clean and friendly. The artist talked us through the whole process and executed things seamlessly. Hopefully, COVID will subside and they'll see more happy customers. I would definitely bring the family back again.
My fiancé wanted to getting her second holes for her ears pierced. They were super responsive and had her come right in. Everything was very clean and very professional. The level of detail put into piercing her ears was amazing. This is hands down the place to go.
My sister and I got our ears pierced here a few months back. The guy was super professional and meticulous about placement of the piercing to make sure they were even. The space was small but very clean and it was comfortable. He gave super clear instructions for at home care and how to properly clean it while it heals. Would definitely go back when and if I want more piercings done.
Very knowledgeable and professional and makes sure you're comfortable the whole way through. Already made my next appointment. Love this place ❤️
