Beginning March 25, 2020 our Governor issued a statewide closure of non-essential businesses and our type of business has been named specifically as a business that must close. All appointments are cancelled through May 14, 2020 at this time.  

We are hopeful that we will be on the other end of this vicious virus after 6 weeks of closure and will be able to open our doors by May 15, 2020. We are monitoring all press conferences and will heed the advice of state and local officials. Unfortunately, it is still uncertain as to when we can open, so until we get closer to that date we are not rescheduling anyone at this time unless you would like to reschedule to a date later than August 1st, 2020. This insures we do not spin our wheels rescheduling people multiple times.  All end of March/April appointments will get priority for rescheduling as soon as we open the books. We appreciate your patience and hopefully everyone will be healthy and back to normal soon!!

Please be patient with us while we navigate through these uncertain times. If the order is lifted prior to May 8th, we will do our best to keep your appointment as scheduled, but please understand that we may need to move somethings around to accommodate everyone the best we can.


We will be available via email for general questions, specific requests for rescheduling and piercing questions.  We will be in and out of the studio taking advantage of this down time to complete projects around the studio and cleaning but we are NOT open for business to the public. We will be checking voicemail and email and will get back with you as soon as we can.


Thank you to everyone for being understanding and we appreciate your continued support during this difficult time. Stay safe and healthy everyone! ❤
