I got my nose pierced and I LOVE IT!! =] The owner was there and he was really nice! and the guy who did the piercing was really funny and made me feel really comfortable. =] They all knew exactly what they were doing and were really helpful and awesome! =]
no problem at all..
i have a lot of piercings. i've only gone to avant-garde. yes, the piercer (paul) can be a sarcastic a** sometimes, he's just trying to sike you out, just play along. i've never had a problem with their jewelry or instructions. my nose didn't hurt AT ALL. the worst one was my industrial, which given is a pretty painful one no matter where you go. None of mine have ever gotten infected, never a natural problem, except that i get bored and take them out when i'm not suppose to then i can't get them back in. i love avant-garde because they're always around to answer any questions or take a look at something if you have any problems with it. I have heard of a lot of people who hate it because they get infected easy, but that's not the case with the people i've talked to. i would really recommend avant-garde, just follow their instruction and go in if you need help or have any questions!
btw the atmosphere is actually very friendly. the woman at the front counter is really nice and can help you as much as she can.
Great place for an infection.....
So, we've all heard the ads. Trust me -- GO TO THE EAST SIDE. My daughter an 'inner ear' piercing done here. The piercer looked like he slept under his car. told my daughter she smelled like leaves. Also told us how drunk he was the night before.
She got a horrible infection. Had to go to another place to get the earring out.
After our experience, I talked to other ppl who had the same thing happen.
