Super-professional - I'm now a fan.
I'm a 50-something woman who needed my ears re-pierced after years of not being able to wear even the lightest, best-quality earrings without persistent soreness and seeping. I read reviews here and checked out websites and settled on Skincraft in Northside - I was especially impressed with the illustrations and aftercare instructions posted on their site.
The piercer, Dawn, exceeded my expectations by ten zillion. My sister, who lives in NYC, went with me and was equally impressed. Dawn washed her hands longer than most doctors I've ever been to and explained the risks if the new piercing ran into my old holes.
She took her time, sought my approval of the hole placement - and was happy to have my sister eyeball things, too.
She laughed about "measuring twice so I only pierce once," a takeoff on the old carpenters' adage, which I deeply appreciated. Her treatment room was super-clean; her aftercare instructions were super-detailed, both orally and in the printed take-home material. She clearly is committed to her art and craft, was thoroughly professional, and great fun to talk with, too. I can't recommend her and Skincraft's standards highly enough.
I would definitely go back!. I went here to have my nostril pierced a few weeks ago. In the past, I've had bad luck with piercings, but my nose has healed up so well and I can tell Adrian did a great job. After the first few days, my nose was no longer sore at all. I clean it two times a day, as recommended, and haven't run into any problems. Everything in the parlor was clean and Adrian was very professional and nice. He was happy to answer any and all questions I had. I would definitely go back to Skincraft!
This is a tattoo/piercing shop located in Northside. I went to get my septum pierced and my friend had her nostril pierced. We were pierced by Adrian and he did a great job! He cleaned down the whole area before he brought out the tools and Jewelry, and everything was one-time use or cleaned in an autoclave. I was going to get a retainer put in, but they talked me out of it because it would probably fall out when I was sleeping, and I'm glad I listened.
The septum piercing barely hurt at all and my friend said her nostril piercing didn't hurt too badly either.
I would highly recommend Skincraft for your piercing needs :D
Great Experience. I had my nostril piercing done here. I came in at the end of the day but never felt rushed at all. Everyone there was friendly and answered all my questions. The pain was much less than I expected. The place is incredibly clean, and I watched my piercer clean everything after he was finished. I would definitely go back to Skincraft.
EVERYTHING was great. i loved skincraft!!! they were kind clean and friendly. i got snake bites from skincraft and it was my first pircing every but they made everything wonderful. the pircers are amazing they made everything as easy as possible they explained what he was going to do and it hurt alot less then i thought it would.I even screwed up one of my pircings and let the inside hole close by mistake and the tapered it back open free of charge. i trust the people at skincraft 100% and im going back in a few week to get my ears done. I highly recommend skincraft to everyone they are amazing!!!
Bruised and abused.
I made the mistake of going here, only because they were the only place open on a sunday.
I got a tattoo of a heartagram on the back of my neck, just an outline, no fill-in. The guys were really nice and it seemed all good, but after it healed I noticed my tattoo wasn't perfect. The lines are not symmetrical, the arches are wobbly, and there was even a part of a line that my skin turned purple for a few days, and now that line is thicker than any of the rest.
Someday I will get it filled in, and FIXED.
The guy that did my tattoo also doesn't work there anymore, if that says anything. I saw him at a different tattoo parlor 9 months later when I was trying to get my tongue peirced.
Just go somewhere else. Anywhere is probably better.
Skin Craft. I was 18 and I had heard from all my friends where the best place was to get piercings they recommended skin craft! I've been going to skin craft for 4years now to get my piercings and there are a very clean friendly enviorment! All my friends go here and family! I have 5 piercings done and 4 have been done by Adrian he's amazing! I haven't had a tattoo yet but when I get ready to have one I will go to them! My friend who just resently went there had one done and her's looks amazing! I've never been anywhere else and I don't plan on going anywhere else!
I love skincraft!!!. If you are looking for a great place to get a tattoo or piercing in Cincinnati go to Skincraft!!! They are very clean and friendly.. I have been to other places like Uptown and just like other ones I see they are not friendly and they don't seem very clean at all!! I have one tattoo and one piercing that I have recieved at Skincraft and I love them and I will continue to go back to get more in the future!!!
