If you’re thinking about getting a piercing, head over to This is Piercing and Fine Jewelry, 729 W. Colorado Ave. Lance, the shop owner, is incredibly informed and laidback, and takes good care of his patrons. The shop is very cute and small, but it is the perfect size for its purpose.I’m very happy with my piercing retainer, which he says is so discrete that he has used it to “trick a drill sergeant” into thinking the piercing did not exist, and the care tips he gave me to keep it healthy.
