I just saw the post about you respecting that little girl, and even though I'm in Charleston, SC, I just may have to find like a day or two so I can come up and get my ears re-peirced by you. Your respect of a person's bodily autonomy, much more importantly a young girl who needs to know that her voice is HEARD. I wish more guys when I was growing up showed the respect, integrity, and honor to my voice and my body that you showed her, and all of us. Rest assured if and when my daughter ever makes the decision that she wants to get her ears pierced, we will be coming to see you.
Hey, saw a post about your respect for a young person and their body autonomy. Way to go. Had to look up your site to see where you are. I am in MN... however, I am from VA. You bet I will be looking up your shop next time I am able to visit family again. Stay well and cheers to your crew.
You're going viral in the best way. Congratulations for being the role-model this world needs https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10157646735412647&set=a.410206207646
Thanks to all, and especially Blake, for a great experience.
Do you have a variety of conch piercing hoops in stock?
BJ Hisforever Kenner let's do this soon!!!!
All smiles and no tears! Thanks Blake for being so thorough and amazing with my 5 year old. It was a big step for her and you made it a great experience!
