So I had been wanting to get my rook pierced ( the inner upper cartilage of the ear ) for a while and I had been downtown in SoHo for the night and knew there were TONS of piercing shops around. I came across Village Pop and decided it looked like the cleanest and most professional I had seen and checked it out. Right away I was able to speak directly to my piercer, Brad, and he helped me choose the type of jewelry to pierce with and which ear to do. I was brought into the back where he had his own private booth and sat down. The floor was so clean I was even able to put my bag down on it!!! Brad was very easy to talk with and made me feel Very comfy!! No awkwardness, no apprehension! He made sure I liked where he marked before piercing and was ready to go. I have over 10 body piercings and this is the FIRST ever that was completely PAIN FREE!!! I kid you not! Brad was extremely fast, confident and smooth, leaving the procedure the most comfortable I've EVER had...EVER!!! I can't stop complimenting him in particular! I was beyond impressed!!! Not to mention the priceing was quite reasonable too ($25) This was my first piercing in NYC, since moving here 5 months ago, and I will DEFINATLEY be back to have Brad do more of his impressive work!!!
Pros: Fast service, great piercing, TONS of body jewelry!
