I went to adorned on a whim. I'd done some research earlier that day and set my sights on Adorned. It looked clean, the staff up front was friendly, and I was getting something simple done so the chances for a F@#$ up were minimal at

talented artists, but the lack of professionalism at the shop means ill never go back there. i have a sleeve that was started by one of the artists there, now after 2 years of trying to get it filled in, about 40 (no joke) phone calls and voicemail tag with the often M.I.A. receptionist of the artist ive given up and decided to find another artist. poor communication and VERY poor customer service. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

I got my nose pierced at Adorned in July/08. I waited to write a recommendation after seeing the outcome. After searching around and visiting a few places, I chose to go to Adorned. I was nervous when I walked in, as it was my first piercing (other than earlobes). I met Danielle. She was very friendly and patient. She explained the whole process to me and we selected jewellery. She calmed me down and it went exactly like she described. She gave aftercare instructions. I followed them and it's healing nicely. I highly recommend the place which is clean and with friendly staff and I highly recommed Danielle.

I was looking for a place to get my second tattoo done and I found NYA through city search and I was incredibly pleased with my experience. The staff was very nice and I'm definitely coming back to Damion to get my next tattoos done.

I came here on a Saturday night to get a Monroe piercing. My piercer was Colby. He was awsome!!! He made me feel soooo comfortable, and he did the piercing perfect. It was quick and easy. He really cared about my comfort. He explained exactley why he was placing the piercing where he did. He made sure it was in the right spot- he is a true artist. I love my piercing!! I have had other piercings before, and have passed out everytime. This was the first time i didnt pass out! Colby was so great!

As far as the jewelry, the selection was OKAY. They had some nice jewelry. I paid like $120 for the piercing and jewelry (small CZ stud) plus a tip for Colby. Overall very reccommended- if i ever get another piercing i will come here, and am even considering getting a tat here. The place has a nice ambiance too!

I was looking at a couple of places to get my first tattoo done, and finally settled on Adorned after reading the reviews here. I'm glad I did! This being my first ink, I went in feeling nervous as heck and not knowing what to expect. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and made me feel at ease. I went in during their walk-in hours because the design I wanted was really small and simple. I only had to wait for about 15 minutes. My artist, Damion, was very friendly and professional, and did a great job on the tattoo. My only problem with this place is that they have limited walk-in hours (Saturdays after 1 pm only), so you might find yourself waiting a while unless you're at the door at 1 o'clock sharp. Some people may also feel they're too pricey, but hey, when it comes to putting something on your body that's going to be there FOREVER, I'd rather pay top dollar and have a peace of mind knowing I'm getting the best there is. I love my tattoo, and will definitely go to Adorned again.

Cons: Limited walk-in hours, on the pricey side (though worth it!)

i literally joined this site, just to leave a good review here for the haters. they're simply direct, and to the point with their clients which saves time for everyone. for those who think 150 an hour is pricey, go to ur local spot and get a sleeve done for 50 bux and see how well its done. :P stephanie tamez did my first tatt, and i fully plan on going back to NYA for more work from her. i booked it and had a consultation with her at NYSA but got the tatt done at the brooklyn NYA2 before its grand opening, which is a total honor! stephanie walked me through the process and freehanded something that makes me happy every time i see it. and she covered the top half of my back in less than 2 hours. thank you! AND her advice on aftercare is the best i've heard and it healed perfectly (not a single scab or other problem) in about 10 days.

Cons: the wait! but its worth it :)

I had my first ever piercings - earlobes - today at the age of twenty-one. Danielle, who pierced me, made me feel really at ease, as did all the other people working there. The jewelry is very pretty (although expensive) and everything was very clean. I felt really comfortable and am glad I chose to have my ears needle-pierced instead of pierced by a gun. Highly recommended!

I had my first piercing by Colby and he was great. For being a pretty sensitive area he made me extremely comfortable and has a very soothing way about him. He's completely in-tune with his work and looks for perfection in the positioning and making sure you are happy.

All of the staff was extremely helpful and very nice as well, not pretentious or trying to pressure anyone into anything or working with a do it now or get out mentality. They also want to make you comfortable in the setting and that feels reassuring, and it has such a great vibe. I can't recommend them enough and I will definitely go back to get more done there.

I had such a wonderful experience getting my monroe pierced by Danielle at New York Adorned! I am not new to piercings or tattoos (I have double standards in both ears, navel, nose and a VCH and three tatoos) but I was still nervous! The shop is very clean and they are patient when it comes to explaining procedure. Danielle was very professional and I would tell any and everybody to get pierced by an artist of this caliber. None of the employees gave off the "you are not cool because you are not pierced and tatt'ed everywhere" attitude. One of my best friends and I went and we both decided after the experience I had to go back and get tattoos. Not matching.

Overall:
-Good Service
-Approchable Artists
-Resonably Priced
-Clean facilities
-Informational Website

I had my first body piercings done there and it was a big step but once there I had no anxiety, very polite staff and very patient.
DANIELLE is great and makes you feel calm. I recommend this shop 100%
They obey all health codes to the max and they have closed rooms for privacy.

I received my first tattoo by Daniel on Friday, and I couldn't be happier. I did a great deal of research before deciding on a place to go, and the general consensus seemed to be that NY Adorned costs a bit more, but for very good reason. I walked in to make an appointment, and the tattoo assistant was extraordinarily helpful in helping me choose an artist, and she was very thorough about getting a description for my custom design. When I went in for my appointment, Daniel was extremely friendly and helpful, and he drew up a design that was exactly as I'd envisioned it. He was amiable and made me feel really comfortable, seeing as it was my first tattoo. He took his time, and he described to me ahead of time what he was going to do. Not only did he do a PHENOMENAL job, he also thoroughly explained to me how to care for it, and left me the option to come in after it's all healed so he can check up on it. The tattoo itself took maybe an hour and a half, and cost $200, which I was more than willing to pay. The lines are clean, the details perfect, and the shading is gorgeous. I've been to plenty of places with friends, and their service wasn't nearly as helpful or friendly, and the work certainly not on par with this (you get what you pay for). I give this place, and Daniel, the highest recommendation. I could not be happier with my experience. Also, if you're looking for quality jewelry, they have some beautiful stuff there -- I'd go back just for that! Oh yeah, and tattoos and tattoo deposits are cash only (so bring plenty).

I did extensive research and visited the other 'top' piercing places before deciding on NY Adorned- it is clearly the best place in the city. Friendly, not pretentious or daunting, and very professional. They do spore testing every week (as opposed to every month- as per the other 'top' places), very clean, professional, friendly and they take piercings seriously and as an art form- as they should be. Thoroughly recommended.

To preface this, I am not a hard core piercing type, prior to this experiance I had only pierced ears. But, I do have a serious scientific/medical background and so can evaluate from that standpoint, which is important when you are talking about basically having a perfectly done little micro-surgery. It requires a great deal of skill and knowledge of wound healing, scar tissue formation etc. THIS PLACE IS EXCELLENT!!!!!! Every parent should only allow ear piercing to happen at a place like this. The average MD will not have the necessary experiance in wound healing etc. or knowledge of techniques and needless to say, the safety and sterilization is exactly what would be found at any hospital. My piercing was quick, low pain and Tyler expalined everything, was very professional yet friendly and warm and put me completely at ease. They explained aftercare and gave me written information. I was really dizzy afterwards from getting myself so nervous (for something much easier than I imagined) and they were very very nice about getting me some candy and a place to lay down.

The comment that another reviewer made about the staff being nice and free of rude "attitude" of some tattoo/piercing places is very true- they clearly are very serious about what they do and not just acting cool and superior.

I would have liked to have more of a selection of gold barbells, but they were very helpful about ordering them etc. Ultimatly, its about the piercing and jewlery can be ordered or changed later.

This is clearly a place at the top of the art and science of their field.

Cons: maybe not cheap (but save money on groceries, not piercings!!)

I went there to get a piercing. The woman at the front desk was extremely nice, informative and knowledgable. She was a huge help in picking out jewelry and answering all my questions. My piercer, Tyler, was also very nice and did a great job. The whole process is very sanitary, he opened new instruments in front of me and he changed his gloves several times during the whole thing. The prices were reasonable, especially for the level of professionalism, which definitely takes a lot of stress out of the process.

All the employees at NY Adorned are really friendly and nice, unlike most piercing/tatoo shops, where being intimidating and rude is the standard. Taylor, the piercer, was knowledgable, professional, and really patient. I highly recommend going here for piercings!

In spite of the occasionally cranky front desk staff, New York Adorned is the place to go for tattoos in New York City, as far as Im concerned. Theyre very clean, very professional, and the artists are serious about the work and seem to enjoy what they do. I always recommend NY Adorned to anyone looking for ink in the city; Ive had three pieces done there by three different artists, and been thrilled with every one. They can rarely fit you in at the spur of the moment, though; stop in to plan an appointment at least a day ahead of time.

PROS: good prices, excellent work
CONS: it's not in Brooklyn
