Ascendancy Ink, Wisconsin Rapids, WI

While getting your body pierced at Ascendancy Ink, maybe think about some possible tattoo ideas as well. Don’t be intimidated by the inked-out artists, rather be excited that the professionals at Ascendancy Ink are about to decorate your body with new metal.

Colourbox Body Piercing, Green Bay, WI

Courtesy of the Colourbox website, peruse jewelry options for your next body piercing. The shop claims to always be honest when piercing about what looks good and what doesn’t. Trust your piercer, but even more so—trust your gut. Remember, the folks at Colourbox are there to “help you bring out the dramatic or just make a subtle statement with a well-placed piercing.”

A Dead Anchor Tattoo and Body Piercing, Madison, WI

Dead Anchor opened in 2012, so they almost have a decade of piercing experience under their belt. The website offers the store as a fun-filled atmosphere where walk-ins as well as appointments are welcome. Visit this chic trendy piercing parlor and you never know, you might leave with a tattoo as well.

The Body Shop Tattoo and Piercings, Appleton, WI

Appleton’s oldest tattoo studio, The Body Shop offers more than 20 years of experience. The website states, “Home of the $35 above-the-waist piercings,” which to be honest is a great deal. Most shops average about $50 for any piercing. Ranking in several tattoo conventions and festivals, these folks definitely know their way around a needle.

Avant Garde, Milwaukee, WI

“Changing the face of the earth, one needle at a time.” Can’t think of a better way to say it than that! Avant Garde’s website claims to be the oldest and to their knowledge, the only, piercing-only studio in southeast Wisconsin. Visit the professionals. Rather than going to a tattoo shop for a piercing, go to Avant Garde, where piercings is all they do.

Positronic Tattoo, Shorewood, WI

Positronic Tattoo dubs itself an “all-inclusive space where anyone of any age can feel welcomed.” The shop has a space-age motif and the workers follow suit. Their preferred way of doing piercings is by making an appointment, but you can also stop at their shop from 12:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday to discuss a potential piercing.

Perhaps you need a dye-job and a hair trim to complete your new look—along with a piercing of course. Visit Timeless Trenz and get the whole package. For a mere $25 receive new ear piercings, with the earrings included. Now that’s a good deal.

Click on their names to read a short bio about each piercer and whether or not they do walk-ins or only accept appointments.
