We also had a great experience at Sticks and Stones. They were great with my daughter on her 7th birthday. Quick, clean, and they even asked me to double and triple check that I also agreed the marks were even before piercing.


Sticks and Stones! I’ve had several piercings done there. Super clean and professional. Just avoid places like [store chains that use piercing guns] and the like. Tattoo shops are a good choice too.
