A message from AJ:  “The client’s health is in my best interest. I will turn down any piercing that I’m not confident will have a proper chance at healing. I’ll do my best to educate anybody and everybody that walks through our door to ensure you get the best service possible. Even if you’ve been pierced elsewhere and have questions regarding your piercing, I’ll still share all the knowledge I have to make sure your healing process will go as smoothly as possible with zero judgment and no questions asked.”

    • Hi Alexis! You can give our Deptford shop a call (856 845 2222) Tues – Sat and speak with our piercer, AJ. He’ll be able to let you know all of the piercings he’s able to do and how much they cost.

  3. Hi, I’ve been looking for a good place for me to get my first piercing and I was just wondering about the price and what type of piercings you do. It would be great if you could get back to me on this.

    • Hi Lexi! You can give our Deptford shop a call (856 845 2222) Tues – Sat and speak with our piercer, AJ. He’ll be able to let you know all of the piercings he’s able to do and how much they cost.

  4. Hello! I was intending to switch out my bridge piercing for a clear piercing ‘retainer’ (if I’m using the proper term ). I know that glass ones are generally safer, so I was wondering if any glass or just general clear ‘retainers’ were sold here. I had my piercing done by Aj a year ago, so he is the only person I would trust to change my piercing as well. With that in mind, may I ask how much it is to switch out piercings? Is there a fee, if so how much?

    • Hi Stefan! We do sell glass retainers but you would need to check with AJ if we carry them for a bridge piercing (he works tues – sat). Most retainers start at around $5.00. If you purchase jewelry at 12 oz there is usually no fee to have AJ change your jewelry.

  5. Hi I was looking to get my belly button re-pierced. My first piercing rejected and it was sergical steel. How much would it cost me if I came to your shop.?

  6. I understand AJ is out of the office and my nose ring fell apart. I am going on vacation and need someone to either fix mine or I need to buy a replacement ring until AJ is back. I have sensitive skin and his jewelry appears to work well for me. Can you tell me what type of jewelry AJ sells so I know what to buy temporarily?

    • Hi, Amanda. In this case we would recommend you contact Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia. There piercers are members of the APP and they’ll be able to put your jewelry back in or sell you high quality jewelry.

  7. Hi Aj,
    I was wondering if there is a fee/not to adjust a microdermal near my left eye. It is showing part of the earring behind the pink diamond and feels loose. I’ve had the piercing more than 6 months or close to a year. Hope to hear back soon.

    • Hello! I’m not quite sure if there is an official charge for something like that. Your best bet would be to speak with AJ the next time he’s in the shop. He works Tuesdays through Saturdays. You can give the shop a call at 856 845 2222 stop by (1135 Hurffville Rd Deptford NJ 08096).

  8. Hello! If i got my belly button pierced by aj, I was wondering I were to come and get a bottom belly piercing, if I could bring my jewelry used from the top and it would be cheaper? Thank you!

  19. I’m interested in a price estimate for two cartilage/helix piercings that I need re-pierced. The bottom hole closed and the top one has a stud in it but it’s a thinner one and not the 16g one you gave me. I still have the two rings from the initial piercing that I want put back in my ear.
