Great First Tatoo – I had to wait a while for the reopening of edge but marc hooked it up and it was worth the wait..great tattooing
Great experience! – My girlfriend and I have both gotten tattoos there and we love them.
Bad piercing experience! – A friend of mine wanted to get her belly button pierced and asked if I'd go along. I wanted to go to the studio where I get all my tattoos, but she wanted to go to Edge, so I agreed. While we were there, I decided spur-of-the-moment to get my nipple pierces.
The piercer looked at it, chose the barbell size (I wanted it done with a ring, but he said it had to be done with a barbell), and got to work.
It seemed to be OK until about 4 or 5 hours later. At home that night, I noticed that my breast felt swollen. I just thought it was because of the piercing and figured it was no big deal. Well, two hours later, my breast was twice the size of the other one, and turning purple. I got freaked out and had my Mom take me back to Edge to see if they could do anything.
The piercer I had earlier had gone home, so another one looked at it. He said it was pierced way too far back on my nipple, almost in the areola, and that was causing my breast to turn purple and swell. He took it out and cleaned it, and told me how to take care of it so it would heal and not get infected. The he told me I could come back in 6 months and have it repierced. Yeah, like I'd go there again!
I will say, though, that they refunded the cost of the piercing, which was good.
Good location...bad experience – In early April I decided to get one of my nipples pierced and went to Rockstar on Thayer St. in Providence. After loving the way it looked I decided I wanted the other one pierced and a friend of mine wanted a piercing as well but wanted to go to the Edge Tattoo in Pawtucket so I agreed because she has gotten a tattoo there so I trusted herd judgment. I told the piercer I wanted a straight barbell to match the piercing I already had from Rockstar, he looked at it and said 'no problem'. I got this piercing from Edge mid-end of April and it's STILL infected as of August 21st. I had a piercer look at it from another place and they said it's because the ring is WAY too small and shouldn't have been used in the first place. I have been taking the best care of my piercing as possible but everytime I 'get cold' it gets infected because the ring is way too small. I am extremely irritated by this and now have to go back to Rockstar and have them take out this ring and put in the correct size. Thanks a lot Edge.
