Our Client Reviews

Reviews

5 stars is not enough for the experience I received at this business!! Amber was so so wonderful I’d give her a million stars if I could. All around the most professional experience I’ve received for a piercing ever. I felt 100% comfortable the entire time I received my service. My piercing and jewelry were fit custom to my anatomy and needs. Very clean shop, very wonderful atmosphere. I will absolutely be back!

We have visited Amber several times for our piercing needs. Handles minor child ear piercings with care and comfort, and a few giggles. SUPER CLEAN is an understatement. Now my little girl has gotten bigger, she has a few more expertly performed piercings as well as a few new ones myself. The quality of her jewelry makes a huge difference in healing and longevity in wear. They are BEAUTIFUL! We have purchased some 14k pieces too. The only place our family will visit.

Be the Change is the best shop I’ve ever gone to for piercings, and will be the only one I go to from here on out. The owner, Amber, is extremely knowledgeable in her craft, and made me feel comfortable and taken care of during the whole process for every piercing I’ve had done by her. Not only that, they make so many different efforts to give back to the community. Thanks y’all!

 

Danica is absolutely amazing! I did a consultation with her and cannot wait to go back for the tattoo. She is extremely knowledgeable and has me feeling completely confident that she can bring the design in my head to life!

I took my 9-year-old daughter to get her pierced ears. Amber was so kind and patient with her when she questioned if she was ready to get her ears pierced. Ultimately, she chose she was ready and has loved her pierced ears. Amber was thorough with follow-up care education and we have had no signs of infection or issues with healing. We have also loved the earrings used have a flat back which makes sleeping more comfortable. I highly recommend Amber to anyone looking to get a piercing, but especially for kids.

You can always expect amazing work from Be The Change! I have been tattooed and pierced here, and it’s always a great experience. My partner was most recently tattooed by Danica, and she did a phenomenal job on his shoulder piece. We love that the shop is also proudly queer owned and inclusive of everyone.
