I went to the Shining Star to get my belly button pierced. Everyone was nice there and helped me become more comfortable. My piercer Cindy ,who apparently left the studio a few days after my appointment, was very humorous and respectful. She was very confident in her work which helped me relax a lot easier. Once it was finished, which took not even 10 seconds, she explained to me how to care and clean my new piercing, she told me the do's and don'ts for the first 6 months, and she introduced to me a bunch of cleaning solutions. [H2Ocean works bests, and Tea Tree Oil]

Now, I'm going in soon to get my septum and industrial. So excited! Love the place and location which is down the street from my home. Because of them I am proudly turning into a human pin cushion! ?

i got my belly button done here, very clean and very nice people. also, i got my monroe done elsewhere however i lost the ball and Cindy the piercer gave me a new one free of charge, where as purple scorpion was going to charge me 15.00$$.. i think this place is a very nice place. I know many people who have gotten tattoos and piercings here. I got 2 tattoos at their sister shop in Beverly (same artists diff shop) very happy with the work!

I was nervous because I never had a tattoo before but Jesse was very gentle and it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Jesse said that once you get one tattoo you will be back and he is right. I already decided that My girlfriend and I will be going back to see Jesse for more artwork in a few months. I am no longer "virgin skin" as Jesse told me. I've got the bug now.

I woke up this morning and decided that i wanted to get tattooed, so after some thinking i decided to go to shining star. Several years ago my sister was tattooed and pierced there and they did a wonderful job on both. Today Jesse did my tattoo, a sparrow with two roses. The tattoo came out wonderful and he was very patient with me. I could not stop moving around and fidgeting. I hope that jesse never forgets me because the next time I decide to get up and get a tattoo, I will be going back to jesse at the Shining Star. thanks Jesse!

They should really be called shining artists because they really have a creative edge above all the other tattoo and body piercing facilities out there. They made my experience as pain free as possible.

I went to the shining star a few weeks ago to get my nose pierced and my friend went to get her industrial pierced. We walked in and at first were kinda of nervous but after a minute of the piercer talking to us about how it was done, I felt a lot better. While he was setting up he talked to us a bit, making jokes and having fun with the other kid who was doing a tattoo. He promised it would only take a few seconds to do my nose and he was right. It took him about 5 seconds. It was REALLY quick. After that, he explained how to take care of it and made sure we didn't have any questions and that was pretty much it. My piercing is fully healed and I love it! I am going to go in again soon and get my monroe pierced, and now that I know whats its like, Im not even scared!

Pros: Really clean, friendly people, cute piercer

Cons: Music was too loud, place was a little small

I couldn't help but read the bottom one and i just have to say, the piercer at the shining star was probably the nicest most professional piercer I have ever been to. He has done the last four piercings I have gotten, and they healed perfectly. This shop is a little small, but overall I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I think saying that they looked like they were on krack was kind of a cheap shot, I go there at least once a month for something, and every time the guys at that place have been upbeat, funny and really professional. I also have checked the shops permits, and the piercer who works full time has every license that you could possibly think of involving the human body, which is why I went there in the first place.

Pros: Friendly, funny, quick and painless.

First of all its pretty much like a basement,with a low ceiling.Super shadey looking to begin w/,no cooling system so pretty much two tiny rooms full of sweaty grimy(kinda cracked out)looking people.

I went there to get my lip pierced,really eager to get it done(maybe too eager since I had heard that the shining star wasn't all that stellar)The piercer was nice and drew the dot,I told him it looked low and he told me that it had to be that low so it could wrap around the lip.I was nervous so I took his word. They gave me NO cleaning instructions just told me while I was in a daze after.3weeks passed&swelling went down and I cleaned it regularly but my lip hurt&felt like my piercing was constantly being pulled.Finally I had enough&called them up,the boy on the phone said I would have to come in&speak to the piercer.when I got there I told the piercer that the piercing was bothering me&felt too low.I proceeded to show him how on the inside of my lip the piercing looked as if it was being pulled out.He asked where I wanted it to get repierced I told him,then he thought about it&said he could repierce it then asked if I wanted the old one taken out..I kinda just stared at him and said YES its bothering me.Then he told me it would be $55..I was stumped&he said"it would be one thing if it was bothering you"to which I said that was the FIRST thing I told you when I came in.He asked about my cleaning regiment(I have multiple piercings,I take care of my piercings extremely well)I told him then tried to show him again how the inside of my lip looked. he asked if I touched/played with the ring alot,I told him no then he laughed&said I JUST touched it.

The whole time he was practically laughing at me,very rude,while I tried to approach it completely neutrally. I told him I'd go somewhere nicer, I should've stuck to my instincts and gone some place CLEAN, EXPERIENCED, & RESPECTFUL. Now Im going to get it redone at the Chameleon in boston :) very nice and very well trained.

Pros: it was close to my house

Cons: its dirty, has a bad reputation, unrespectful, very rude, piercer is only in acouple days of the week

I went in the shining star last week to get my belly button done. I was really nervous but the piercer there was really nice and walked me through it. He was really friendly and made me feel extra comfortable. Everything seemed clean and sterile and the room looked like a cool doctors office. I was suprised when he did it cause it only took about 10 seconds, and it was almost painless! I think his name was John or Josh, I cant remember, but I would NEVER go anywhere else after going to this place. It was a fun, relaxed enviroment with quality staff.

I went in the other day for a simple jewelry change because the jewelry I had in had infected my peircing. After I made sure they could make the change i purchased a new peice of jewelry. I went into the room and the man told me to take out my jewelry. Since it had infected my peircing i threw the old jewelry away seeing no reason to keep it. The man looked at my peircing and told me he needed to stretch the hole. He could not find the tool he needed to stretch the hole so he took a thinner ring out of a case and without sterilizing the ring or putting on gloves tried to put it in my hole!! I backed away an asked him to put on gloves and to please sterilize the ring before putting it in my body. He then went off on a rant about how it would take a half hour and he didnt have that kind of time. Then he asked his assistant to take my old jewelry OUT of the TRASH and give it back to me!! When i told him i wasnt going to put that back in my body because it had infected my peircing and now had been in the garbage he got mad and said he couldnt understand why i threw it away in the first place!! This place was soo dirty and unsanitary i would never recommend anyone go there.

A few days ago I decided to get a new piece done, my fourth tattoo to date. A few friends of mine had gone to Shining Star in Peabody and they told me if I wanted the best to go there and ask for Corey. I have been hearing about Corey's work for years from friends as well as strangers and have always heard nothing but good reviews. So I went in and put down a deposit for my piece and waited for Corey. I picked out a basic piece which he was happy to modify for me exactly as I had pictured it. He offered advice and suggestions I had not previously thought of. I told him "what ever you think Corey, I will trust your judgement". And I am very glad I did. He is polite, friendly, and a wonderfully creative artist. I had a great time talking with him and he made me very comfortable as he covered my foot with my new tattoo. It came out better than I had imagined. He will now be the only person to ever add ink to my body.
