i was seduced by the low priced piercing - $25 for a nose ring. low quality metal tarnished in less than a month, nose ring fell out constantly because it was only held in place by a slight bend, had to have it repierced at la belle vie (horrible, painful, hasty service the second and third times) and finally had it redone right elsewhere. amazingly, with the right metal and the back bent correctly, my nose has stopped trying to absorb the piercing. i could have saved time, pain and money by just paying for quality the first time.
Pros: fast service, cheap piercings, some staff friendly
Cons: some staff awful, poor quality, speed over care
