Finding a place to get a piercing in New York is a daunting task. The sheer volume of piercing salons in the city is staggering, and finding a clean, reputable place to get your body art done can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Horror stories of lost earlobes and infected eyebrows can steer anyone clear of getting pierced altogether.
A jewel in its own right, Jewels 32 is the quintessential piercing parlor. Its cleanliness and pleasant staff immediately calm any nerves a potential pierce-ee might experience. Tucked into the exciting St. Marks Place, it would be easy to miss the little shop. The staff at Jewels 32 promise to provide “the highest quality of customer service possible” and offer a wide range of piercing possibilities. It’s quite comforting to know that the person who will be puncturing your body with a needle is a licensed professional, and Jewels 32 lives up to that promise. The jewelery is high-end and the piercings made in a clean, safe environment by people who have been trained to do what they do. And it’s not just piercings that Jewels has to offer– the wide selection of jewelery offered at the St. Marks hotspot isn’t limited to piercings. Jewels 32 carries a wide range of high-quality jewelery including bracelets, anklets, lockets, necklaces, and rings from reputable designers including Millefiore and Swarovski.
I didn’t get a piercing during my visit to Jewels 32 (ears are enough for me!), but if any of my friends wanted one I wouldn’t hesitate to send them to Jewels. It’s not easy to find someone you can trust with altering your body; it deserves a technician who takes the job seriously. Having experienced my fair share of indecent customer service in piercing salons and tattoo parlors, it was a breath of fresh air at Jewels 32.
