Exciting News at The Piercing Lounge

Greetings!

It has been a long time since the last update on the blog here. That brings quite a bit of exciting news from The Piercing Lounge.(There is also exciting news from Blue Lotus Tattoo, which will be covered in a separate post) JB has started his long awaited apprenticeship with JohnKid and myself. He is a valuable member of our staff and we look forward to watching him grow into an awesome piercer and joining JohnKid, Jose and myself to close out or Professional Body Piercer ranks. Keep and eye out for upcoming opportunities to get pierced by JB. Please feel free to contact JB at the studio for more information and to watch our Facebook page for more updates. JB will also be handling the jewelry sales at our West Side location on Sunday’s (6713 Odana Road), and as he progresses through his training we will be increasing our piercing services offered that day. The downtown studio is still open for all your piercing needs. Please remember this is Sundays only and strictly in regards to piercing.

In other news, JohnKid and I have recently joined The Association of Professional Piercers (APP). This was something we have been wanting to do for quite sometime and as a good friend, fellow piercer, and APP member said “It’s about time”. If you are not familiar with the APP please take a minute to visit the website.

We firmly believe in their mission and are looking forward to working with our peers to always better ourselves and bring you the safest piercing experience we can provide. In honor of that JohnKid and I will be offering 10% off any regularly priced piercing* June 14th-June 30th. You must mention The Association of Professional Piercers when filing out your paperwork.

June 7th-12th is The  Association of Professional Piercers 20th annual conference and exposition. Johnkid and I will both be attending. This means that the piercing schedule will be a little different during that time and if you are looking to work with a specific piercer please call ahead to make sure they are in the studio that day. June 14th everything should be back to normal. (for us anyway 🙂 )

Since I’m authoring this post I would like to add a personal note. More of a thanks really. I would like to thank the owner of Blue Lotus Tattoo and The Piercing Lounge for creating an environment that allows for professional growth and helping us achieve this milestone. Also a big thanks to each and every person reading this, to everyone that has come into the studio to get pierced, buy jewelry, or ask advice on a piercing. Thank you for all your trust!
