Had such a good experience at Stix n Studz getting my second hole pierced. Greg was super kind and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely go back for my next piercing and I recommend!
I had my belly button pierced here today and Greg (the man doing the piercing) made the experience very comfortable. He thoroughly explained the procedure along with the after-care which eased my nerves. The piercing looks great and I am so happy I chose to have it done here!
Greg was awesome. I got my first piercing ever in my ear lobes and he did such a good job and made me feel so comfortable that I got my belly button as well on the same visit!! I’ll definitely be back soon. I would suggest if you’re looking for the cleanest and most chill place in RI.
the best ever and i’ve never written a review before so you know i’m serious
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.

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!
I got my ears pierced for the first time and Greg was very accommodating. He provided all the information I needed, and was transparent in what he was doing. I felt comfortable and relaxed.
He also is a good conversationalist - provided great tips for the local area!
Great people. Owner Greg and Molly are great. Did amazing job assisting me with my nose piercing emergency. Will definitely be going back.
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 ( . ) ( . )

Got my nose pierced here, and it looks great! Fantastic customer service, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a piercing!!
Awesome selection of glass and clothing and very knowledgeable and helpful staff!!!
Stix N Studz is great! I had a piercing emergency -- no details, but I was freaking out -- and I went in, with no appointment or anything. They helped me out right away, and were so kind and reassuring. Greg (I think) handled the situation and was definitely like Piercing Dad -- "ok, let's get this fixed, here's what we're going to do" and it was a huge relief. I will definitely be going back in the future!
Great jewelry selection, clean environment and great customer service!
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!
I love this place
highly recommend. hi greg, you just pierced my ear for the second time this week. thank you (i really like it)
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!
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!
They are super professional and very clean. Had my ears pierced for the first time and Greg made me feel very comfortable. Will definitely go back!
Great customer service
Amazing place, gentleman who runs the store is super nice and welcoming. Definitely recommend 11/10
Such good vibes lots of love for my people
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!
I went in on my Birthday last minute looking to get my nose pierced and Greg squeezed me in between appointments. He was very accommodating and made me feel less nervous. You can tell he loves what he does and he is very professional / clean with his work. He knows what he’s talking about!
amazing experience! the owner was so nice and did a great job. i came in really nervous and he made me feel really calm. very professional and sanitary!
