Summer is definitely one of my busiest times of the year for piercing. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be the most inconvenient time of year to get pierced. I recommend waiting a minimum of two months before getting into a pool, lake or ocean after getting pierced. If you are about to go on vacation, you may want to wait until you return to get pierced. Getting in the water with a healing piercing can open you up to potentially catching a wide array of nasty infections. Not only that, but things like sunscreen and sand getting into your piercing will for sure irritate it. Please plan accordingly and take care of yourself this summer!
Once again, starting next week, Samppa Von Cyborg and his wife will be guest spotting in my studio space. They will be here April 1st till the 11th, and my available time for piercing will be limited as they will be working out of my studio space. Please call or email me before coming in so you do not miss me!
Since I opened, I've always emailed receipts to save paper. I am please to announce as of last week I am now totally paperless. Instead of using paper release forms which take up tons of space(I have almost 4 years worth now!), I am now using this rad program developed by my friend Joel called "Stab Pad". It's a completely on line release form that you fill out on my iPad when you come in. It will even email you a copy of the release form you signed for your records. Because Joel himself is a body piercer and owns his own piercing studio, he was able to create the perfect program for our industry. So far, I am loving it! He even made it completely free; Bless his heart.
Sorry guys, I know it's Saturday but I'm sick. I need to take today to rest up. If you need me please email. Thank you!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be out of the shop next weekend; Sept. 23rd, 24th and 25th. I will be back at the shop normal hours Wednesday the 28th. I will still be checking emails and voicemails if you have any questions. Thanks for understanding.
It has occurred to me that I am having problems with my business phone line. I apologize if anyone has tried to get ahold of me and did not get a call back. I created a google voice number to foreword to my cell phone when I first started Cherryworks, and thus far it has worked perfectly. out of nowhere I am having a lot of issues with it. I'm working on resolving it and I apologize for any inconvenience. I would recommend emailing me if you'd like to get ahold of me for the time being as I'm not certain I am getting all of my voicemails or even seeing that I have missed calls. Thank you for understanding.
June 1-4th I will be guest spotting at Sacred Tattoo in NYC. If you are in need of assistance in that time please feel free to stop by the DC or Wheaton Tattoo Paradise locations and Erica or Brian will be happy to help you. You can also email me or call at any time. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Just updated my FAQ section and will be adding more photos soon. Happy Fall everyone! Don't forget to take advantage of my back to school sale before it's over. With the holiday seasons coming up Id like to remind you I have gift certificates and gift wrapping available.
I will not be in the shop this Sunday(the 18th). Appointments are always preferred and welcome to ensure you are seen in a timely fashion.
Hey guys! I'm back from APP and I had a great time. I'd like to let you all know that my summer hours will be a little wacky and changing for the next 8 weeks. I emphasize more now then ever that appointments are the best way to reserve a spot with me. I will be posting my new hours on my site and yelp listing but I wanted to make a post on here about it as well. Please feel free to email with any questions.
I am very pleased to announce that Samppa and his wife Aneta will be coming back for an even longer guest spot in April. They will be working April 4th through the 11th. I loved hosting them last year and am looking forward to seeing them again. They have quite a bit of work lined up.
This month Cherryworks is officially 1 year old. It was a lot of hard work and I couldn't have made it without all my wonderful clients. I feel really lucky to have such kind and loyal customers. From my heart; thanks guys!
With the holidays fast approaching Id like to remind people I have gift boxes AND gift certificates if you don't know what size jewelry you need for your friend, partner, gf, bf, ect...I'm going to pick up some ribbon and wrapping paper as well to make things even fancier for all your gift giving needs.
Were almost halfway through October and I've received all of the jewelry I needed for my special Halloween sale. Stay tuned for photos and information on how to participate.
