I got my ears pierced at Tommy T's back when I was 16 - my dad had to sign for me. Dad's cool! Now I'm almost 20 and I went back to get my ear pierced again. At my work they are very strict about what is allowed as far as piercings and jewelry. The piercer's were very helpful in finding the right piece that would meet my job's requirements and still look good. I even brought in my employee manual that has illustrations as to the size restrictions on jewelry. The piercing was very fast, the staff was friendly and if I get another piercing I will definitely go back - although it will have to be something my work can't see!
