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!

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 is absolutely amazing! The entire staff was great also! I was scheduled for 3 piercings and asked for a fourth and Starr accommodated me. She made me feel super comfortable, took her time and talked me through everything step by step. I’ll never go to another piercer again, I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience there! I’d give 100 stars if I could! Thank you everyone!

I recently got my septum pierced by Johnny Pearce, and I love it!!!! The process was smooth and quick. The staff was friendly and made you feel comfortable. I definitely recommend this place to everyone because if anyone is cautious of which place to trust or who to trust, Nine Moons is the place you want to go to. The pierces are knowledgeable and know what they are doing!

I was very lucky to have found this place! I have 10 piercings and have never had the wonderful and caring experience I had at Nine Moons. Highly recommend it, especially to get pierced by Starr! She made the experience friendly, easy and genuine. Book with time!

Came in to see Casey for a nostril piercing while I was in NYC for a trip. Had been wanting to do this forever and found Nine Moons via the APP website. If you come during the daytime know that you must take the elevator on Broadway to the studio on the 2nd floor. The stylist at the front helped me pick out the right jewelry (good selection too) for my face. The piercer Casey was awesome and talked me through the process and it was over in less than 5 minutes. Yes, this particular piercing hurts a lot more than an ear piercing but the pain subsided pretty quickly. She gave me all the aftercare information and answered all my questions. Clean, sterile, informative, and helpful! Love my piercing. If I was a local I'd come back soon.

The staff is informative and friendly, and always happy to answer questions when you call. The shop itself is the cleanest piercing shop I've ever been in, and just generally a welcoming space, and they make sure to work with you to make sure you do a check up on your new piercing. Actually the only piercing shop I'll ever use again.

Starr is always sweet, amazing and professional. Everyone there is!I had my rook and tragus pierced. Everything is clean, sterile, and very knowledgeable about piercings and what would work best for your ear. I went there 2 years before this visit and Starr pierced my conch. She even took a peek to make sure it healed correctly. I wouldn't let any other piercer do it except her. Her voice is very calming, and she gets excited with you about what you want to get.

Everyone there was so inviting and friendly. I checked out a few other places but none were nearly as comforting. Casey, my septum piercer, was awesome! So friendly and explained the process before and during the procedure. She was also very clear about the aftercare process. I would definitely go back for any piercing I may want!
