DON'T GO HERE! I went to this place to get my first piercing a month ago: a tragus. I was dumb and went on a whim for my 19th birthday, as I had been wanting one for a while.. but I'd never really done my research. I put my faith into the piercer's hands (kind of a heavy-set guy with a huge septum piercing) and I especially trusted him because he told me he's done this millions of times before. I did exactly as I was told, soaking it in organic, all-natural sea salt and warm water twice a day. Never slept on it. Never hit it. Never fiddled with it.. I didn't pick at the crusties or itch at the itchies. But then it started getting itchier and itchier by the day (still never itched at it!) Not a month later do I have a big keloid next to the piercing hole. I finally decided to do my research and asked a professional's advice... turns out I was given the wrong gauge for a tragus. He pierced me with an 18g instead of the standard 14-16g. 18g's aren't typically used due to the high possibility of rejection and migration. Now, of course he didn't give me a choice of either a captive ring or a stud.. he would only allow me to get the captive ring.. so it was (naturally) too small to get off of my tragus. That took time, patience and a lot of pain. :( I finally got it off with wire cutters............... Replaced the piercing and keeping my fingers crossed for not only the keloid but now the initial healing process as well. I'm pissed off. Nobody should be dealt with so carelessly.. especially when it comes to something as delicate as a puncture through your skin and/or cartilage. So please, take my advice: do your research ahead of time and CHOOSE A DIFFERENT SHOP.

I was very impressed ~ took my daughter in to have her cartilage pierced on her ear. Nervous about it and they put me right at ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and service oriented, the shop was clean and comfortable. Took us w/o an appt and was done very quickly. I would highly recommend them!

I went to rt.9 tattoo in framingham with my uncle.he wanted to take me for my first tattoo where he goes and knows i will be treated fair and get the tattoo i wanted.\r\ni am sorry to say that i can't make up my mind what i want.i thought i did until i got there.there are so many pictures and designs on the walls.they were very understanding and didn't make me feel pressured.the guy who tattooed my uncle said it would be best if i waited until i was 100% sure.i really appreciated his honesty. He did a beautiful portrait of my little cousin on my uncle's back.it looks just like him i can't believe it.\r\nwhen i am ready i will definetely be going to rt.9 tattoo and have Steve do my butterfly ( or stars)lol! : )

My daughter and her friends have gotten piercings done here and they are very careful, strict with guidelines, the studio is clean, and very good. If you are reluctant to sending your teens somewhere for piercings or even tattoos for when they get older, this is a good place. I have friends who have gotten tatooos there as well and they highly recommend it.
