I wish I knew this shop before! I would’ve choose to get my septum done here. The store is clean and representable, the crew is friendly, chill and very professional. They’ve got all kinds of great jewelries, which I ended up purchasing one for myself. Went back here again to get my jewelry fixed and place it back and of course! I was greatly satisfied with their service and they’re very accommodating. I would highly recommend Exotix Studios for sure! 💯 Read Less

Went in to get an industrial piercing the other day, I was immediately met with exceptional staff and amazing service. I had a consultation with Jessie, who informed me that an industrial pricing would not work for me ear but gave me many other suggestions. I ended up getting a cartilage piercing which I am very happy with. Jessie was great, she explained the whole process to me, and tailored my experience to suit my needs. Exotix is a great environment, very welcoming and extremely clean, I will defiantly be going back for my next piercing. Read Less

The staff at Exotix rooooocccccckkkkkkksssss so freaking much. I decided to finally take the plunge and get my nose pierced after over a decade of deliberating. Based upon the exceptional Yelp reviews and the studios proximity to my hotel, I figured all of the stars were aligned and it was finally time to get my piercing. I was able to make an appointment easily. The studio is so clean and very well organized. They have a nice selection of earrings at various sizes. They guy who took care of my piercing was very thorough. He answered my many instructions and gave me detailed after care instructions. I wouldn't say the piercing was painless, but it I survived! I didn't pass out and the pain and was functional. I am extremely pleased with my piercing. Super, duper cute! Glad I finally did it! Unfortunately, I went back the next day because it was brought to my attention that the earring I selected was too big for work. Ugh! I made a mad dash back to Exotix. They were so awesome, took me in as a walk-in and swapped the piercing out fairly quickly. I truly appreciated their flexibility and understanding. I can not recommend this studio enough. Thanks Exotix for a dope experience! Read Less

Okay so I feel like I should go through all the steps of just how lovely and accommodating this studio is. From the quick response time to the actual piercing itself I never had such wonderful customer service or been around such genuinely nice folks. The receptionist was sweet and always asking me and my fiancé if we needed drinks and made sure we were both comfortable. I was pierced by Jessie and oh my goodness she is a sweetheart! If I wasn't a broke millennial I'd tip her more than I did in that moment. She made me feel so comfortable to the point I almost forgot I was about to let her stab me with a needle in a few minutes. Every step was explained and she answered every question I had. You ever worry the piercing may end up janky or lopsided? Not with her because she will spend all her time making sure it's perfect which made me very happy. Not to mention the confidence boost I got after I was done meant so much. This is definitely an establishment that deserves the 5 star reviews it has and I will absolutely return to get more piercing in the future. P.S. I totally taught I was going to get basic jewelry but their selections with gems will steal your heart and your money. No regrets! Read Less

I couldn't be happier with this studio, their staff and my piercing experience!!! After researching studios and piercers in Toronto, Exotix was my final choice. Questions and booking were done through email with Lindsay - she was friendly, professional, accommodating and very fast at responding/returning emails. The studio itself was very clean, great atmosphere, and very welcoming. I have had 9 piercings done by different piercers in Ontario and BC. This was by far my best experience, which I'm very grateful for considering I opted for a Christina piercing - definitely nerve wracking I was pierced by Six who was accompanied by a woman - whom I wish I could remember her name! She was lovely and took the teaching seriously. They were both professional, made me feel very comfortable and quite obviously knew what they were doing. It was almost clinical. They took their time measuring and examining the area to ensure they would have the best outcome. The piercing itself wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting! You work yourself up a bit because of the location but overall it was like any other. The first poke is sharp but then the needle passed under layers of skin which had no feeling other than the sensation of movement. The final pierce back out was done before I could finish my inhale. There was movement and sting and when the bar was put in place. Overall it was a very manageable pain level and once the bar was set, I didn't feel a damn thing . I was definitely sweating though! I'm writing this 9 hours post pierce and I have zero pain and next to no swelling. Crossing my fingers it stays this way! Six personally went over aftercare instructions and made it very clear not to hesitate to get ahold of him for any questions or concerns at any time . I cannot stress enough that he is very skilled at his job. Without a doubt you will be in good hands if you choose to get a piercing at this studio. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thanks again guys!!! I look forward to coming back to swap the bar! Read Less

I just had a piercing done at exotix. I started off by emailing to inquire about my particular piercing and I can't be more than impressed at how prompt they were with emailing me back. Gordon responded in a timely fashion with all questions answered. I scheduled an initial appointment on a Saturday, which can get busy quickly, but then had to reschedule and they accommodated me nonetheless. My piercer Jessie is amazing at what she does and her approach is super gentle with minimal to no pain. Child birth was more painful than when she pierced me. I highly recommend this place! The staff is super nice and they all look like amazingly beautiful people both inside and out! Definitely sending many of my friends and colleagues here! Much love :) Read Less

I have came by this place twice and have been met with exceptional service. Just to start I didn't get any piercings here and i'm sorry I didn't come here first! My first encounter here was to get help putting in jewelry that I foolishly took out. I had purchased my jewelry elsewhere and although it was jewelry in which he didn't recognize at first (Maria Tash) Six was MORE than helpful and helped me put it back!!! (Cost $10, he sterilizes it for you and uses utensils to fit it back) I was so blown away by the service I HAD to come back and purchase some jewelry to switch out in my existing piercings. Six assisted me again. He helped me decide on the jewelry and switched out everything without a hassle! From the get go you can tell he knows what's he's doing and is kind and makes sure you're comfortable. Front desk staff was also very kind and amazing.For anyone curious about the jewelry, they carry a wide range for all different styles and tastes from titanium to gold. The jewelry I decided to go with was from BVLA and was on the pricier side. Spent $1000 on two pieces of jewelry BUT SO WORTH THE MONEY. Ive had bad experiences before at other places (Reactive Ink) trying to save a buck and will NEVER make that mistake again. Nowadays I will spend the extra money on having a piece of mind.COME THIS PLACE FOR YOUR PIERCING NEEDS. YOU'LL BE HAPPY YOU DID!!!! Read Less

I first discovered this studio back in 2012, and received a tragus piercing from Six. He's great at what he does and is a kind person who makes me feel welcomed and at ease when I come in. It's been my go-to spot for body piercings and professional grade jewelry ever since, and up until fairly recently I've had nothing but praise for Exotix. However, after having several unpleasant experiences with one particular piercer at this studio, I will no longer be returning. I find her attitude very pompous, off-putting, and she is reluctant to answer questions. Honestly, it had reached a point where I would hope not to see her when I came in for a piercing or to purchase jewelry. After being snapped at today for checking my phone, I knew it would be my last visit to Exotix. She was also dismissive while asking her a question about the healing of my most recent piercing. For the amount of money this studio charges, I expect friendly and professional service. I'd also like to mention that none of the piercings Six has done for me have scarred, yet my conch piercing I had done by this individual had to be retired due to migration and excessive scarring. Not impressed, to say the least. Read Less

Oooooooooooooooooooooookay, okay, okay, people. CALM DOWN. I get that Six is cool and everything, and Jessie is great and all, but can we please take ONE MINUTE to talk about LINDSAY, the receptionist?First of all, I'd like to say that for the record, I have been here three times over the last 6 months, and all encounters both inside Exotix for work and outside (when I have questions regarding aftercare or jewelry quotes), have been 100% excellent due to Lindsay. She is super polite and has been so stellar when it comes to answering any questions I've had regarding aftercare, and also getting quotes for me regarding jewelry, She has kept me in the loop about what's going on or the process behind jewelry quotes, even if she doesn't have an answer right away regarding what I'm asking for. Did I mention that her response time is excellent? Lindsay has been a blessing to  me throughout my experiences with Exotix. They are so lucky to have her (and I am so lucky to have met her), and if you ever get a chance to meet her, make sure you let her know that you feel the same. Now back to reviews on the piercers, hmm...I actually have 3 piercings from Exotix. I came here three times, and each time have walked out with something new. I have a daith done by Jessie, and a helix/outer conch AND an inner conch done by Six. They, too, are excellent piercers - very fun and social, and definitely know how to make you relax through the piercing experience. I highly recommended ANYONE you know to get their piercing work done here. A few times, I have also brought a friend with me to get piercings done also, who also informed me that he felt that Exotix was the best place he has ever been to in his life. I've had the pleasure of getting some BVLA jewelry through Exotix as well (currently ordered - thanks Lindsay!), which I am super stoked about. They have many options for high quality jewelry, as well, to facilitate your healing. The cost of the actual piercing are OK - some say it's a little on the high side. I'll be honest, in comparison to other places, I don't really notice a difference as it's so minor (5-10 bucks maybe?). You truly get your money's worth in all aspects, though. Knowing that, it doesn't warrant any complaints. The piercings are done well (EXCELLENT placement), minimally invasive and not super painful (just a tiny pinch). Even with aftercare, I haven't had any issues due to piercing placement, and have received many compliments on my piercings, even by others who oppose or don't like piercings, in general.Regarding the facility:It's SO clean. The decor is modern, and yet classy. Note that the office is on the 2nd floor ABOVE the restaurant at the same address. Appointments are welcomed, though not necessary. I find from my experience, it helps to make one, especially if you're looking to have multiple things done in one go. It'll help keep you organized to remember all that needs to be done, while making the most of your appointment.All in all, I would never let another studio pierce my body. MY ONLY two regrets regarding Exotix are 1) that I didn't find this place sooner and 2) that I'm currently running out of money because I actually want more stuff done. Read Less

Hands down my favourite piercing establishment in the city.I've been pierced by both Jessie and Six. My first visit, Jessie pierced my nose. She took her time to make sure I was comfortable and the placement was done well. Least pain I've felt on any piercing. It's been 8 weeks and my nose has healed with zero complications. I'm so happy with it. My second visit here was after another store botched up my ears and navel and Six was lovely enough to remove the ear jewelry for me and guide me in how to heal my navel. Super professional and very nice guy! I came back and had him do my snake bites, and I'm so glad I decided to have him do it. Seriously DO NOT CHEAP OUT ON PIERCINGS. Six was super precise, took his time to make sure the placement was perfect and you can tell he's really serious about his craft. The discomfort was very minimal and the piercings look flawless. I'm not going to risk having my piercings botched anywhere else ever again just to save a few dollars (not worth it!). Exotix is primo (and a wide jewelry selection!).  You really do get what you pay for here. Thanks so much guys !! Read Less

Very clean studio, very friendly and professional service. The piercer has a great attention to detail, is up front and honest. Came in originally to get a navel piercing for my partner but when he checked her anatomy he advised against it as there was not enough tissue to do a proper piercing. Instead she got a second piercing on her ear lobe and loves it. Got my own ears pierced and was impressed with how thorough the piercer was to select the locations. Barely felt the needle go in and no discomfort afterwards. I highly recommend this studio. Read Less

Amazing service. Jessie did my navel piercing and I am so appreciative of the amount of time she took in doing it correctly. I had my piercing done before by anther artist and had to take it out (because of pain) - Jessie spent a few minutes making sure the piercing would be straight AND so that you wouldn't be able to see the scar from the last piercing. Very professional, collected, and friendly. She also took the time to explain cleaning it properly. Jewelry is beautiful.

Jessie pierced my conch a few weeks ago and it could not have been a better experience. She answered all my questions with patience, and we had a great conversation as she was sterilizing and getting everything ready. This place has the highest standards of cleanliness. Jessie marked the spot on my ear where she thought the piercing would look best and I looked in the mirror and we discussed it. Jessie explained exactly what she was going to do for the piercing, and what she needed me to do. She made sure that I was happy and not feint, and asked if I needed any water. She made sure I understood how to care for the piercing, and that I am to go back 6 weeks after the initial piercing for a "check in" and to downsize the post. Hands down one of the best experiences I've ever had. The shop sells high quality (and very pricey!) jewelry, but you most definitely get what you pay for. Read Less

The only piercing shop I'll go to even since moving far outside the GTA. I've had multiple piercings done and custom jewellery orders made now by Six. The studio is clean, welcoming, and highly professional. All the staff there have always gone out of their way to make sure that I'm comfortable and taken care of. Exotix carries only the best high quality jellewery; it's one of the few studios I can find that has BVLA in stock and offers custom orders. I've never been in another studio like it and have always left very happy. Highly recommended. Read Less

I have been here twice. The first time was for my septum piercing and the woman that did it for me did it freehand. She was so kind and nice and it was done painlessly.  Then I decided to go to a different piercing place to do my nostril. That piercer told me to do some sketchy cleaning that I completely ignored and did instead what exotix preaches...SALT WATER. I noticed that my nostril wasn't healing the way it was supposed and came back to exotix to get my ring changed (the place I went to used crappy jewellery)  Since then  my nose has been healing well. They are pricey but you only live once and your body is something to be cherished . Treat it well and get pierced here! Read Less

So there are 3 things I don't gamble with and those are piercings, tattoos, and my hair.  I found Exotix through Yelp and let me tell you Yelp was right.  Exotix is a clean and upscale atmosphere with a down to earth staff.  They have quality jewelry from three different vendors including BVLA. The staff is knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have as well as give suggestions as well.  I came in to get my forward helix pierced.  Jessie was my piercer and we had a grand time.  She was very good at explaining what she was doing and why.  She gave me previews of what the earring would look like before she pierced my ear as well as showing the markings for where the piercing would be.  I was very surprised b/c I have a low pain tolerance, but Jessie was a pro at not causing excessive pain and was honest about what you may feel.  She also made sure to check that I was okay every step of the way.  She did my forward helix by free hand and it came out beautifully.  You are in good hands if you come here.

Oops! Long overdue review for this placeI got my ears pierced here by Alex about 2 years ago. 1) one done on the helix 2) one for each side of my ears lobes, this is the second piercing on my lobe. Alex was really nice about the process and took a long time to thoroughly make sure they were even and proportioned to my previous piercing. He was also accommodating about allowing me to use my own earrings. I get a slight reaction when I wear anything silver or steel in my ears. I haven't pierced my ears since I was a kid. Vaguely remember having it done by a family member with a needle and ice cube. Old school style! Lol. Anyways, I was wary of having the helix done cause I heard it hurts a lot. For anyone thinking of getting a helix piercing, it actually wasn't too bad. The recovery period I found actually hurts more. They say it takes 6 months to heal... But I would say for me, it took almost 9 months to a year. On and off, I would experience intense swelling and irritation. Sometimes it hurt a lot. However, Alex was very understanding and answered any concerns I had. I religiously applied the sea salt and water solution he recommended, which really helped with the swelling. Totally recommend this place. Just know it is pricy $$$, don't come expecting to pay what you would for a piercing at Claire's. Lol. But as they say, you get what you pay for. They are very professional. Read Less

He responded right away with great advice, and the keloid disappeared within a couple weeks.So. F'ing. Impressed. Read Less

The staff at Exotix rooooocccccckkkkkkksssss so freaking much. I decided to finally take the plunge and get my nose pierced after over a decade of deliberating. Based upon the exceptional Yelp reviews and the studios proximity to my hotel, I figured all of the stars were aligned and it was finally time to get my piercing. I was able to make an appointment easily. The studio is so clean and very well organized. They have a nice selection of earrings at various sizes. They guy who took care of my piercing was very thorough. He answered my many instructions and gave me detailed after care instructions. I wouldn't say the piercing was painless, but it I survived! I didn't pass out and the pain and was functional. I am extremely pleased with my piercing. Super, duper cute! Glad I finally did it! Unfortunately, I went back the next day because it was brought to my attention that the earring I selected was too big for work. Ugh! I made a mad dash back to Exotix. They were so awesome, took me in as a walk-in and swapped the piercing out fairly quickly. I truly appreciated their flexibility and understanding. I can not recommend this studio enough. Thanks Exotix for a dope experience! Read Less

Okay so I feel like I should go through all the steps of just how lovely and accommodating this studio is. From the quick response time to the actual piercing itself I never had such wonderful customer service or been around such genuinely nice folks. The receptionist was sweet and always asking me and my fiancé if we needed drinks and made sure we were both comfortable. I was pierced by Jessie and oh my goodness she is a sweetheart! If I wasn't a broke millennial I'd tip her more than I did in that moment. She made me feel so comfortable to the point I almost forgot I was about to let her stab me with a needle in a few minutes. Every step was explained and she answered every question I had. You ever worry the piercing may end up janky or lopsided? Not with her because she will spend all her time making sure it's perfect which made me very happy. Not to mention the confidence boost I got after I was done meant so much. This is definitely an establishment that deserves the 5 star reviews it has and I will absolutely return to get more piercing in the future. P.S. I totally taught I was going to get basic jewelry but their selections with gems will steal your heart and your money. No regrets! Read Less

I couldn't be happier with this studio, their staff and my piercing experience!!! After researching studios and piercers in Toronto, Exotix was my final choice. Questions and booking were done through email with Lindsay - she was friendly, professional, accommodating and very fast at responding/returning emails. The studio itself was very clean, great atmosphere, and very welcoming. I have had 9 piercings done by different piercers in Ontario and BC. This was by far my best experience, which I'm very grateful for considering I opted for a Christina piercing - definitely nerve wracking I was pierced by Six who was accompanied by a woman - whom I wish I could remember her name! She was lovely and took the teaching seriously. They were both professional, made me feel very comfortable and quite obviously knew what they were doing. It was almost clinical. They took their time measuring and examining the area to ensure they would have the best outcome. The piercing itself wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting! You work yourself up a bit because of the location but overall it was like any other. The first poke is sharp but then the needle passed under layers of skin which had no feeling other than the sensation of movement. The final pierce back out was done before I could finish my inhale. There was movement and sting and when the bar was put in place. Overall it was a very manageable pain level and once the bar was set, I didn't feel a damn thing . I was definitely sweating though! I'm writing this 9 hours post pierce and I have zero pain and next to no swelling. Crossing my fingers it stays this way! Six personally went over aftercare instructions and made it very clear not to hesitate to get ahold of him for any questions or concerns at any time . I cannot stress enough that he is very skilled at his job. Without a doubt you will be in good hands if you choose to get a piercing at this studio. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Thanks again guys!!! I look forward to coming back to swap the bar! Read Less

I have came by this place twice and have been met with exceptional service. Just to start I didn't get any piercings here and i'm sorry I didn't come here first! My first encounter here was to get help putting in jewelry that I foolishly took out. I had purchased my jewelry elsewhere and although it was jewelry in which he didn't recognize at first (Maria Tash) Six was MORE than helpful and helped me put it back!!! (Cost $10, he sterilizes it for you and uses utensils to fit it back) I was so blown away by the service I HAD to come back and purchase some jewelry to switch out in my existing piercings. Six assisted me again. He helped me decide on the jewelry and switched out everything without a hassle! From the get go you can tell he knows what's he's doing and is kind and makes sure you're comfortable. Front desk staff was also very kind and amazing.For anyone curious about the jewelry, they carry a wide range for all different styles and tastes from titanium to gold. The jewelry I decided to go with was from BVLA and was on the pricier side. Spent $1000 on two pieces of jewelry BUT SO WORTH THE MONEY. Ive had bad experiences before at other places (Reactive Ink) trying to save a buck and will NEVER make that mistake again. Nowadays I will spend the extra money on having a piece of mind.COME THIS PLACE FOR YOUR PIERCING NEEDS. YOU'LL BE HAPPY YOU DID!!!! Read Less

I first discovered this studio back in 2012, and received a tragus piercing from Six. He's great at what he does and is a kind person who makes me feel welcomed and at ease when I come in. It's been my go-to spot for body piercings and professional grade jewelry ever since, and up until fairly recently I've had nothing but praise for Exotix. However, after having several unpleasant experiences with one particular piercer at this studio, I will no longer be returning. I find her attitude very pompous, off-putting, and she is reluctant to answer questions. Honestly, it had reached a point where I would hope not to see her when I came in for a piercing or to purchase jewelry. After being snapped at today for checking my phone, I knew it would be my last visit to Exotix. She was also dismissive while asking her a question about the healing of my most recent piercing. For the amount of money this studio charges, I expect friendly and professional service. I'd also like to mention that none of the piercings Six has done for me have scarred, yet my conch piercing I had done by this individual had to be retired due to migration and excessive scarring. Not impressed, to say the least. Read Less

Oooooooooooooooooooooookay, okay, okay, people. CALM DOWN. I get that Six is cool and everything, and Jessie is great and all, but can we please take ONE MINUTE to talk about LINDSAY, the receptionist?First of all, I'd like to say that for the record, I have been here three times over the last 6 months, and all encounters both inside Exotix for work and outside (when I have questions regarding aftercare or jewelry quotes), have been 100% excellent due to Lindsay. She is super polite and has been so stellar when it comes to answering any questions I've had regarding aftercare, and also getting quotes for me regarding jewelry, She has kept me in the loop about what's going on or the process behind jewelry quotes, even if she doesn't have an answer right away regarding what I'm asking for. Did I mention that her response time is excellent? Lindsay has been a blessing to  me throughout my experiences with Exotix. They are so lucky to have her (and I am so lucky to have met her), and if you ever get a chance to meet her, make sure you let her know that you feel the same. Now back to reviews on the piercers, hmm...I actually have 3 piercings from Exotix. I came here three times, and each time have walked out with something new. I have a daith done by Jessie, and a helix/outer conch AND an inner conch done by Six. They, too, are excellent piercers - very fun and social, and definitely know how to make you relax through the piercing experience. I highly recommended ANYONE you know to get their piercing work done here. A few times, I have also brought a friend with me to get piercings done also, who also informed me that he felt that Exotix was the best place he has ever been to in his life. I've had the pleasure of getting some BVLA jewelry through Exotix as well (currently ordered - thanks Lindsay!), which I am super stoked about. They have many options for high quality jewelry, as well, to facilitate your healing. The cost of the actual piercing are OK - some say it's a little on the high side. I'll be honest, in comparison to other places, I don't really notice a difference as it's so minor (5-10 bucks maybe?). You truly get your money's worth in all aspects, though. Knowing that, it doesn't warrant any complaints. The piercings are done well (EXCELLENT placement), minimally invasive and not super painful (just a tiny pinch). Even with aftercare, I haven't had any issues due to piercing placement, and have received many compliments on my piercings, even by others who oppose or don't like piercings, in general.Regarding the facility:It's SO clean. The decor is modern, and yet classy. Note that the office is on the 2nd floor ABOVE the restaurant at the same address. Appointments are welcomed, though not necessary. I find from my experience, it helps to make one, especially if you're looking to have multiple things done in one go. It'll help keep you organized to remember all that needs to be done, while making the most of your appointment.All in all, I would never let another studio pierce my body. MY ONLY two regrets regarding Exotix are 1) that I didn't find this place sooner and 2) that I'm currently running out of money because I actually want more stuff done. Read Less

Hands down my favourite piercing establishment in the city.I've been pierced by both Jessie and Six. My first visit, Jessie pierced my nose. She took her time to make sure I was comfortable and the placement was done well. Least pain I've felt on any piercing. It's been 8 weeks and my nose has healed with zero complications. I'm so happy with it. My second visit here was after another store botched up my ears and navel and Six was lovely enough to remove the ear jewelry for me and guide me in how to heal my navel. Super professional and very nice guy! I came back and had him do my snake bites, and I'm so glad I decided to have him do it. Seriously DO NOT CHEAP OUT ON PIERCINGS. Six was super precise, took his time to make sure the placement was perfect and you can tell he's really serious about his craft. The discomfort was very minimal and the piercings look flawless. I'm not going to risk having my piercings botched anywhere else ever again just to save a few dollars (not worth it!). Exotix is primo (and a wide jewelry selection!).  You really do get what you pay for here. Thanks so much guys !! Read Less

Very clean studio, very friendly and professional service. The piercer has a great attention to detail, is up front and honest. Came in originally to get a navel piercing for my partner but when he checked her anatomy he advised against it as there was not enough tissue to do a proper piercing. Instead she got a second piercing on her ear lobe and loves it. Got my own ears pierced and was impressed with how thorough the piercer was to select the locations. Barely felt the needle go in and no discomfort afterwards. I highly recommend this studio. Read Less

Six did my piercing and was fantastic!  He was a great sport, even entertained my foolishness as I requested a nose hair trim with my piercing.  I had a fantastic experience and in my opinion, it was well worth the price paid.

Went in to get my industrial done on one ear on my birthday. Entire place was spotless, including the bathrooms and counters. Piercer was friendly and honest, explained my ear anatomy wasn't the best fit for it but proceeded to show me all the other options. I decided to get my forward helix instead and was promptly walked through all the different types of jewelry. He made helpful suggestions and answered all my questions. Explained what was happening through every step of the process, taking extra care to show me exactly what he was using and how sterilized it was. Piercing itself was fairly painless, quick and looks awesome. Received an after care package and was even wished a happy birthday. Great, super clean, friendly studio! Read Less

Amazing service. Jessie did my navel piercing and I am so appreciative of the amount of time she took in doing it correctly. I had my piercing done before by anther artist and had to take it out (because of pain) - Jessie spent a few minutes making sure the piercing would be straight AND so that you wouldn't be able to see the scar from the last piercing. Very professional, collected, and friendly. She also took the time to explain cleaning it properly. Jewelry is beautiful. In my opinion, it's worth spending $100 for the whole thing since my last piercing was $60 and ended up hurting so much. Read Less

I went in without booking an appointment and the wait time was not long at all. The piercing was quick and was not even close to being as painful as a flu shot. The staff were kind and was willing to address any questions I had for them. They provided me with the necessary information to care for my piercing afterwards, as well as the date to when I am able to change my ring. They are on the pricey side (costed $113 in total for the most basic option) but you are getting what you paid for, and I was willing to spend the extra dollars knowing that I am in good hands.

Jessie pierced my conch a few weeks ago and it could not have been a better experience. She answered all my questions with patience, and we had a great conversation as she was sterilizing and getting everything ready. This place has the highest standards of cleanliness. Jessie marked the spot on my ear where she thought the piercing would look best and I looked in the mirror and we discussed it. Jessie explained exactly what she was going to do for the piercing, and what she needed me to do. She made sure that I was happy and not feint, and asked if I needed any water. She made sure I understood how to care for the piercing, and that I am to go back 6 weeks after the initial piercing for a "check in" and to downsize the post. Hands down one of the best experiences I've ever had. The shop sells high quality (and very pricey!) jewelry, but you most definitely get what you pay for. Read Less

I have been here twice. The first time was for my septum piercing and the woman that did it for me did it freehand. She was so kind and nice and it was done painlessly.  Then I decided to go to a different piercing place to do my nostril. That piercer told me to do some sketchy cleaning that I completely ignored and did instead what exotix preaches...SALT WATER. I noticed that my nostril wasn't healing the way it was supposed and came back to exotix to get my ring changed (the place I went to used crappy jewellery)  Since then  my nose has been healing well.

Oops! Long overdue review for this placeI got my ears pierced here by Alex about 2 years ago. 1) one done on the helix 2) one for each side of my ears lobes, this is the second piercing on my lobe. Alex was really nice about the process and took a long time to thoroughly make sure they were even and proportioned to my previous piercing. He was also accommodating about allowing me to use my own earrings. I get a slight reaction when I wear anything silver or steel in my ears. I haven't pierced my ears since I was a kid. Vaguely remember having it done by a family member with a needle and ice cube. Old school style! Lol. Anyways, I was wary of having the helix done cause I heard it hurts a lot. For anyone thinking of getting a helix piercing, it actually wasn't too bad. The recovery period I found actually hurts more. They say it takes 6 months to heal... But I would say for me, it took almost 9 months to a year. On and off, I would experience intense swelling and irritation. Sometimes it hurt a lot. However, Alex was very understanding and answered any concerns I had. I religiously applied the sea salt and water solution he recommended, which really helped with the swelling. Totally recommend this place. Just know it is pricy $$$, don't come expecting to pay what you would for a piercing at Claire's. Lol. But as they say, you get what you pay for. They are very professional. Read Less
