Studio 512

Sometimes it can be a little awkward to get your ears pierced. It seems like the only options are Claire’s… which you may feel too old to enter… or a tattoo parlor… which can be intimidating when you’re only getting a piercing and meanwhile the person next to you is getting a sleeve. Well, Austinites, the ear-piercing game is changing and we are in luck! There is a new spot in town and it officially opens today, April 14, 2021.

Studs is the brand that reimagines the ear piercing and earring experience and stands for bold self-expression through earscaping and its inclusive community.

Studs provide safe, clean, curated needle ear piercings done by professionals and offer a wide assortment of earrings for earscaping. They only with needles, never guns and the piercers are experts on all things ear piercing, earscaping, and earrings. The curated earscape has been one of the biggest trends in earrings over the last few years.

A curated ear-piercing trend is all about choosing the perfect ear piercings, locations, and earrings to complement your ear shape and unique style.
