I had an amazing experience here a few months ago when I got an upper lobe piercing by Johnny. He was so professional, soothing and the entire process was easy and pain free. He spent as much time as necessary to make sure the locations of the piercings were perfect and asked me several times for my input to make sure I was happy with how it looked. All of the staff were super helpful and followed all of the COVID precautions necessary to keep everyone safe and sound. I can't wait to get my septum piercing here once they offer under mask services!

Cannot recommend NMP enough. I have been there for four of my ear piercings. They have been consistently kind and professional and are hyper careful to make sure everything is done safely and correctly (especially during the pandemic!) They were extremely understanding when I was squeamish for my first set of piercings, and Johnny talked me through the process calmly and slowly. Piercers pay careful attention to make sure piercings look good and are as pain-free and safe as possible. Whether you are a body art beginner or a regular, this is the spot to be - I would never go anywhere else.

I can’t express my gratitude enough for Nine Moons Piercing. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful with the process from start to healing. They answer all of my questions and genuinely want me to have a positive experience with my new piercings. Please get pierced here, it is worth every single penny.

They sanitized my cellphone ( how awesome is that), my hands, did my temps and kept the doors locked until I was done. Appointments are super easy and they're very accommodating to your specific needs. Communication is great, they're quick to reply to emails and on the phone. This is the 3rd time I've done a piercing with Casey, she's amazingly patient, informative, and very kind ( she loaned me her umbrella). I've have 2 daiths done for migraines, and a VCH each time she talked me through the process and did breathing exercises. Her calm demeanor relaxed me and the pain was quick and minimal. They don't have you waiting long, it's way faster than any doctor's appointment I've had so 👍👍 for that.

I absolutely love this studio and the people who work there. I got my second helix done by Starr in 2015ish and every single visit since then has been such a positive experience, whether I was getting a new piercing, needed help with an existing piercing, or was looking for new jewelry. I've had appointments with Starr, Johnny, and Casey, and all three have been so patient, professional, and kind. They're honest with you about what kinds of piercings/jewelry will work with your anatomy, and really go above and beyond to make sure you're set up for a happy, healthy piercing.In the last couple of months I've gotten several new piercings from Casey, and those visits have really been a bright spot in a rough year! The piercings themselves were easy and shockingly painless, and the stylists helped me pick out some absolutely gorgeous jewelry (including a cute little bat charm customized for my current set up-- thanks Naomi!!) The studio takes their COVID precautions seriously, and I felt very safe during these visits. All around just a stellar spot with some very kind and professional people who will really make sure you are comfortable and taken care of.

I went to Nine Moons for a troublesome front helix piercing I got about one month ago. Casey was great. She changed the back, cleaned me up and gave me great follow up advice. Will definitely go back.

Starr and Johnny are wonderful. I’ve had almost all my piercings done here, and now I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They really take the time to make sure you have the perfect placement, (which is especially important if you’re working towards a final goal, like multiple stretched earlobe holes.) The staff are also friendly and knowledgeable, and they respect my chosen name and my pronouns. Can’t ask for more. I love this place and I’m already planning what I want to get done next!

I was here for new jewelry on a healed navel piercing and could not be more thrilled with my piece. Johnny Pearce helped with my replacement jewelry and was a gem to work with.

I went for a daith piercing a year ago in the west village and they did both ears with stainless steel. After a year it wouldn't heal. Having come to this location for a VCH piercing I had a great experience with Cassie she's super knowledgeable and easy going, talked me though the entire process. She took both out, I waited for it to heal and do it properly this time. It may be $$$ to $$ but the service is worth it. They really know what they're doing, the place is so clean and has a great vibe.

I would absolutely recommend Nine Moons Piercing to anyone looking for a safe, clean, & friendly piercing experience. I was here for new jewelry on a healed navel piercing and could not be more thrilled with my piece. Johnny Pearce helped with my replacement jewelry and was a gem to work with.Covid protocols are followed to a T. I felt confident that their staff was safe and making sure I was comfortable. Looking forward to going back for some custom jewelry in the future!!

I had a piercing done at a piercer when visiting Chicago who recommended Nine Moons should I need any assistance back in New York. I can't recommend them enough! Johnny helped resize the jewellery and was very professional, calm and knowledgable. I just rang to ask another few questions and the lady I spoke to was just as friendly and knowledgeable!

I had such an amazing experience at this place and I know that if I ever want to get another piercing again I will go here. Johnny was so kind and he was a perfectionist making sure that everything turned out beautifully/perfectly. I highly recommend him. He made the experience comfortable and easy. I love my new piercing. 🙂

So I went in to get a genital piercing with Starr and I have to say she is so professional and easy to talk to. Literally was there for less than 5 minutes she explained the process and aftercare very thoroughly. I could not have had a better experience. I want to thank Starr again for her work and professionalism I will go to her again when I need more work and will definitely recommend everyone to her. In fact if you are reading this while looking for a piercer stop your search today and hit her up! Will be coming in when I’m healed for the gold barbell!!- Kev

Today I came into the shop to get my daith pierced. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and happy to help. Star is an awesome piercer, she worked quickly and made the whole experience very pleasant. Nine moons is extremely welcoming, which is a vibe you don’t get at a lot of other shops. Would definitely visit again!-Isis Joseph

Thank you thank you thank! I had been emailing back and forth with Starr abou pricing and jewelry stock for a couple of days before she suggested I make an appointment to stop in and see the jewelry myself. Starr was there along with another piercer, Casey. They both were incredibly friendly and chill and made me feel comfortable despite my nerves. She showed me a few options they have from BVLA and held them up to my tragus with needle nose tweezers so I could look to see how they would look and calculated the prices of all the pieces to include not only the ends but the labret posts and the piercing charge so I had a complete picture of the price. When I chose the piece I wanted she asked if I wanted to come back or if I had time to get pierced then and there. She told me that she blocked out some time in case I decided on a piece and wanted to get it pierced immediately, which was beyond what I was expecting. She sterilized the pieces while I filled out the paperwork and then I was pierced! It was such a great experience and I can't give them enough props.I am in love and am so excited to work with them in the future!

I’d been putting off getting my earlobes pierced for ages, but spontaneously decided to finally get them done. Johnny was so fantastic, he walked me through the process and made sure I got exactly what I wanted! Will be back for more as soon as these heal!!

Starr Ellis is an extremely competent and professional piercer. She pierced my septum back in 2014, it was a quick, easy and completely sterile experience. Starr provided great information about aftercare and my piercing healed beautifully. If ever I would recommend a piercer it’s always gonna be Starr.

I went to Starr to get my rook pierced (my first cartilage piercing), and she was fantastic throughout the process. She had clearly read my information before I got there, suggesting appropriate jewelry options for me. She talked me through each step of the process as it happened and helped me breathe through the pain to make the experience as easy as possible. About a week after I got it pierced, I was having some pain in my ear, and I reached out. Starr was genuinely concerned and had me come in to clean the ear out. Since she was extremely busy, Johnny cleaned my ear, again helping me breathe through the pain. He gave me his professional opinion on my ear, but encouraged me to listen to my body and see a doctor if I wanted extra peace of mind. My ear is doing infinitely better right now, and I'm so grateful that I chose Nine Moons thanks to their experience, compassion, and respect of my needs!

i never write reviews, but i feel obligated to for nine moons. Starr is amazing!!! i cannot stress that enough. She has helped me with a difficult piercing that was pierced elsewhere. Starr is unbelievably knowledgable about body piercings and i would trust anyone to go to her. I'm glad I found this place. everyone here is so kind and helpful. i'm so impressed with the level of professionalism and experience.

Starr as always is a joy to work with! She's so knowledgeable about piercings and knows her stuff! There's a reason why you have to wait to book with Starr: and she's worth the wait!!
