Great piercing experience for the nervous! – Very helpful and professional would go back
Awesome Cartilage Piercing! – I had wanted to get my cartilage pierced for a while now, but I was worried because all my friends who did it ended up getting bad infections. After internet research, I decided I needed to go to a real piercing parlor that used needles, not piercing guns. Venus appealed to me because it was a calm, classy environment and not a sleazy tattoo parlor.
Venus was great. The saleslady helped me pick out the appropriate earring that I wanted without rushing me. My piercer was awesome, I wish I had caught her name. She was extremely professional and sterilized everything multiple times. The piercing itself did not hurt that badly and I haven't had any pain since the first day. I am avoiding sleeping on it because I don't want to get an infection. but I am EXTREMELY satisfied with everything.
My only complaint is that I ended up spending a lot more than I wanted to ($60 for a small white gold ring plus $20 for the piercing plus $7 for the saline solution), but I would much rather spend more and have a great experience than go somewhere cheap and end up with a lot of problems.
Unsafe and overpriced – I had always felt this store was a rip off, you want a great piece of fine navel jewelry buy a reasonably priced earing and have it converted to a navel ring at NY Adorned ( buy the post and have two pieces of threading attached on the ends ) - or just by directly from them and save yourself a fortune by Avoiding Venus. Maria Tash and Co will literally tell you anything you want to hear to make a sale. Her icon navel piece shown in this pic was not designed by her or anyone there ...its a fairly common earing that shes reproduced and marketed as her own. As far as my in-shop experience, my friend went to get a piece installed ( bought elsewhere thankfully) I was appalled watching this go down, she was handled repeatedly without gloves her jewelry was tossed into a cold soak and then a USED unpackaged clamp was used to tighten it. Save your money and health and walk the few blocks to NY adorned.
Great place for piercing and jewelry – I have been to Maria Tash 3 time. The first two were for the 2nd and 3rd hole in my ears. The last time was for my belly button/naval piercing. My piercing tech was Chris and not only did he do a great job he conducted himself very professionaly. The after care instructions were very clear and I was also told I could come back at any time to get my piercings checked. I have not had any problems with them so far.
The only place to get pierced – I've become a frequent flier at the SoHo location. I've had 5 piercings done, from ear piercings, to a navel piercing to a dermal anchor. Over the years, I've returned to have my piercings fixed, changed out, or just to have questions answered. The staff was always knowledgeable, patient, and professional, no matter how old the piercing was. The process was always sterile, even if they're just fixing something (and not just when piercing). The selection of jewelry is vast and any piece in the store would make for a classy addition.
CHANTAL is amazing! – As it was time for me to get a new tattoo, i didnt know where to go since my last experience in a brooklyn shop wasnt so great. i met Chantal and told her i wanted a tattoo but wasnt too sure about what i wanted to get, she got into my mind a bit asked me about what i liked and she drew up one of the most beautiful flowers i have seen. Detailed to perfection and the color scheme was flawless.... and her drawing looked even better inked on my Skin! thank you Soooooo much Chantal i will definitely be back again!
The Only Place to go for Piercing! – After reading the glowing reviews I decided to get my nose pierced here. I'm not covered in tattoos or piercings and have often felt intimidated in the past walking into tattoo/piercing places, mostly by a staff who treats you like you have no business being there. From the second I walked into Venus all my nervous energy dissolved. The woman at the counter was incredibly sweet and gracious and helped me pick out a perfect piece of jewelry. Chris did the actual piercing and was amazing. He immediately calmed me and the whole process was quick and (almost) painless. The shop is gorgeous and the staff is first rate. I'd come back in a second and would highly recommend this shop to anyone who is considering a piercing or wants to buy beautiful jewelry.
Absolutely the best choice for piercing! – I'd wanted to get my navel pierced for a long time, so I did alot of research about where to go and how to heal properly. I found Venus by Maria Tash's website and got drawn in by all the gorgeous jewelry options. I was even more sure I'd picked the right place when I saw the Broadway store. It was so clean and had such an elegant, calming vibe. The staff was so nice, taking the time to help me choose and carefully explaining the aftercare. All the jewelry is real gold, no surgical steel or titanium here, so it was a little more than I expected to spend, but I never expected to find such a beautiful piece of jewelry for my starter piece. It's healing so perfectly, I'm so glad I finally went through with it and found a piercer who knew how to do it right :D
Wonderful experience of my daughter's ear piercing – I took my 6 year-old daughter for her first (and hopefully last) ear piercing. She had been asking to get them done for some time, so I consented and brought her to Venus. Our piercing specialist, Meg, was amazing. She was patient and sweet with my daughter, who was starting to have second thoughts and was scared and crying. We were there for 45 minutes, and not once did Meg show impatience or annoyance. Once she pierced the first ear, it was so quick and painless that my daughter readily agreed to have the second one done.
The room and eqipment were impeccable; both Meg and the woman at the counter were very informative and gave me detailed after care instructions. Highly recommended.
Megan is the BEST! – I recently got a VCH piercing (not at Venus by Maria Tash). I loved the piercing but not so much the jewelry the piercer used. It seemed small and a little bit uncomfrotable. I started looking around for good jewelry. While checking out tons of body jewelry stores online, I ran across Venus by Maria Tash! The jewelry is absolutely beautiful! I was VERY impressed!! I immediately called the store to order. I spoke with Megan and let me tell you...she is awesome! I told her that I was pierced with a 16 gauge barbell and it was a bit uncomfortable. She was extremely informative and helped me to pick out the perfect jewelry for my piercing. I ended up ordering two pieces of jewelry from them. She shipped them to me overnight and when I got them, I was thoroughly satisfied! Absolutely beautiful! Because I was going up a gauge, she even included a taper to help with the jewelry change! This is definitely the only place I will ever buy my body jewelry!!
