I do recommend the Knotty Headz on Beltline. You sign a contract, and with that paper work, you also get a sheet on after-care. They are very nice people, and were very informative. They even answered questions a few times for me. I had 4 piercings at once. Yes, they will be painful, suck on ice chips for the tongue, eat soft foods. Ci-Ci will tell you this. The other lady is very helpful with instructions on what not to cleanse your mouth with. They will tell you the amount of healing time it will take for various body parts. I loved them. I had called the store on Broad River Rd. on July 10, 2010, and they sounded rude- like I was wasting their time with questions, the lady had an attitude.
You can ask ask many questions as you like at Beltline, and they will answer you.
Piercing does hurt afterwards, you can apply ice packs for certain places, and suck on ice chips for the tongue. I don't know why the review before mine is bad, maybe she didn't listen, anytime- you have surgery it hurts, but later- it gets better, the same for body piercings. Use common sense- don't put hot soup in your mouth, metal gets hot quick, that is dumb, and people should just know better. Don't move your mouth to talk a lot, because the more you talk at first, the more you will hurt. Just stay sterile, and you shouldn't have any problems. Clean your piercings. Eat soft foods, apply ice packs to keep swelling down in certain areas, and use wisdom. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
I only have good things to say for the store, we went back to get more rinse for my mouth, cause I smoke, and they were concerned something was wrong. I recommend Beltline. I called every store, except the one in Sumter. I called Beltline 2 times before I went. I would and will recommend the Beltline Store to people. They are helpful in giving advice about the items you may want to choose- for later.
Thanking you for taking the time to read my review. I had read the one posted before mine, that's why I called different locations to get the feel of the place. I wasn't wrong in following my instinct. Thanks!!!
Pros: Excellent Staff
Cons: You are going to hurt, it's natural. It will heal in time.
