Relaxed Atmosphere and Knowledgeable piercers. KELLAN'S grea – I was very nervous about getting piercings. But the piercers answered every question, gave me advice, and did not pressure me at all into getting it done. They really care about your health and safety rather than just making money. Kyle told me to wait to get my piercing until after my summer vacation so that I could enjoy without worrying about the care of a new piercing. I really appreciated their honesty and concern. My piercer Kellan was also very approachable, understanding, experienced and smart. He made sure I understood everything about the procedure, pros and cons, and the care of the piercing before we decided whether or not to do it. HE really took his time explaining and doing the piercing. So in response to those who complain about the long wait, this might be the reason why there's a wait. So really it's a good thing. The staff is really chill and they joke around with you yet still manage to keep their professionalism. the follow-up and support care is great. they even told me I could contact out of state piercers that they knew if I needed anything if I was away. I'm now a loyal customer. it's great! if you want a piercing, go HERE!
Has gone slightly downhill recently – So yeah, the counter people are pretty terrible at their jobs but I don't go there for the counter workers. The piercers themselves have always been polite at worst, extremely friendly at best. My favorite piercer, Kevin Jump, no longer works there and I believe that some of the other long time piercers have also left. But it's still a clean safe place to get pierced.
Terrible. – Absolutely terrible. The rudest, most condescending people I have ever encountered. An earlier reviewer had it right; just go next door to Tiki Tattoo... they're much nicer and far more professional.
infinite body piercing – I was extremely dissatisfied with the service at this establishment. The counter clerk was not only obnoxiously rude but a complete incompetent idiot. For one, he missed quoted me prices when i asked him specific questions regarding jewelry and offered vague, unhelpful answers to all my questions. When told what i wanted to get pierced, it felt more of an interrogation, asking many invasive questions. I felt like i had to choose what i said to him wisely just so he would allow me the privilege of their services. My friend gave me more insight to what jewelry i was buying than the repugnant imbecile i was speaking to. Excuse me for not being knowledgeable about proper terminology, but correct me if i am wrong, the professionals are supposed to assist you in that. All i asked for was to get my nose re-pierced, but got a stuck up attitude from the whole staff. They were elitist jerks to say the least, just because they had holes the size of dinner plates in their ears, does not mean they are better than the costumers which come in. The piercing itself was done well, but the look my piercer gave me before sticking a needle into my nostril half terrified me. I would definitely not recommend anyone to go there, unless one wants to walk out with snickers and abhorrent commentary from the staff. -kojie
Some issues here...... – The counter service was downright rude-no people skills or no desire to even pretend to have them. They rush you and act annoyed you even exist as person. The guy was probably a dork in high school and now because he works as a counter person at a piercing shop thinks he is cool (news-flush, you still aren?t cool). Acting like a decent human being is obviously more than he can handle. However, the piercers are nice(r) and more than willing to answer any questions which slightly makes up for the rudeness at the counter. But, they still seem very busy and the feeling that it has to be a fast piercing is very obvious. But first impressions do last?. The jewelry is amazing, but I would still go somewhere else.
Definitely not trouble-free – Although infinite is one of the best places in the area to get jewelry, I definitely would not recommend getting pierced there. I recently had a double lip piercing and had a very bad healing experience. My lip swelled up so much that it swelled over the short-posted piercing that they gave me. It also made my whole bottom lip deeply bruised for over three weeks. At first, I just disregarded this as a mistake (everyone makes them) and decided to go back there to have my piercings changed after a few months. I had been having a hard time with losing my jewelry and was looking to buy two lip rings that I wouldn't have to worry about the studs and catch-balls falling out and losing them. The piercer recommended two new pieces to me and changed them out for me. That night when I got home while talking to a friend, the catch-ball of my hoop fell out onto the floor and my new $30 lip ring was lost. The "worry free" ring was lost after a day. I do not recommend going to Infinite for anything involving a piercer. I recommend their jewelry, but if you really want to have a trouble free experience, don't let them pierce you or change your jewelry.
best place to get a nose piercing – i loved infinite. i went there to get my nose pierced and it was great. my piercer was really cool and liked ninjas but at the same time was very informative and knew what he was doing. I havent had any problems with the piercing or the jewelry. i would recommend this place to everyone.
Infinite – Well, i just got my vertical nipple pierced yesterday 11/13/07, and i had a really good experience. I would def say to go on a week day the shop was empty and everyone was really cool, while i was waiting i talked to the counter help and admired all their beautiful earrings. the process was quick and the piercer was really chilll. it hurt like a son of a gun(i convinced myself it wouldn't be bad, but it kinda was) but thats no ones fault. i would def recommend this place. its a clean professional atmosphere and they'll answer any questions you have. good luck!!
Multple Bad experiences!! TERRIBLE – I got my nose pierced at Infinite and although that went alright, the general attitude of the piercer sucked.They are too busy and will admit it gets to them so they take it out on their customers. They recommended a tip "if you don't want it lopsided or messed up." People who came in after me were taken first and when I asked how long the wait was, the piercer flipped out that "he was the only one on duty and was doing his best" ...I just wanted to know if I would need to feed the meter. Later, I went to get the nostril screw adjusted and when I arrived at the shop they were closing 2 hours early and said they wouldn't help me...even though I called before I came to ask their hours! When I finally got it adjusted, it still fell down continuously. I went back a second time (the adjustment was worse) and the metal was always hanging and finally a third when I was told 90% of nose screws "fall down" and I was just the only one complaining about it! They sold me labret jewelry instead which was ugly, poorly fitting and uncomfortable. I finally checked with a more professional piercer and 5 mins & $5.00 later, I had a comfortable fitting nostril screw (the original) properly re-bent and it NEVER falls down even when I touch my nose. SAVE TIME AND MONEY, GO NEXTDOOR to TIKKI TATTOO..see Luis.
I will go back again – I went to Infinite about 9 months ago to get my left tragus pierced. My husband who was a piercer told me that this is only place he would go to if he were to have anything pierced. Clay was my piercer. He was very friendly, discussed with me at length about pro and cons of getting such small (20) gauge piercing (to match the one I had on my right tragus, which I got at Cambridge MA a year ago). He even told me that he would pierce my older piercing to bigger gauge (to 18 G). I was stubborn, and he finally agreed to pierce my left tragus with the smaller gauge, since my right one healed up well. I didn't know that having 20 G tragus piercing would give problems, that was never discussed when I got my right one pierced at another place. Clay made sure that my left piercing was in line with my right one. He was funny, and talked me through the whole process.
They also had a nice selection of jewelry. I was able to get a nice 14 k ring.
Would definitely go there again if I were to get anything else pierced.
