  • High Hope is honestly one of the best smoke shops on the island. Everything you need or could ask for they have it. I’ve been in the store more than at least 20 times and never had a bad experience. The manager Greg is amazing with piercings and always willing to help his customers. The employees do such an amazing job and they are a great team which compliments his business very much. All the employees are very educated on all the products that are being sold throughout the store and they are very polite which makes it so much more better! If you have any questions while you’re in the store definitely ask they love to help!

    Was in Newport earlier today and came across a small shop named high hope! Upon entering I was greeted very nicely by a young and older man behind the counter! They were very exceptional with helping me find what I needed and were very friendly throughout the time I was in the store! I would definitely recommend anyone who stops in Newport to stop by this store! HIGH HOPE ROCKS!!! 🙂

  • Getting a piercing with Greg is a positive experience and he’s for sure a knowledgeable piercer. A very informative appointment with a fabulous and straight septum piercing. Will for sure come back for some new jewelry and another piercing once this one heals. Thanks so much!

    Just got three piercings done at High Hopes in Newport. The owner (Greg) was very nice and knew exactly what he was doing. I loved the angle in which he did my cartilage, and the spacing he put between each piercing he did. He was very gentle and knowledgeable. My piercings are healing great with the after care he provided me with. High Hopes also has a great selection of jewelry for all types of piercings that were beautiful.

  • My daughter and I went in with previously pierced noses that were pierced incorrectly at a different location. The owner couldn’t have been more knowledgeable about aftercare and correct techniques. He fixed us both up and we are now on the mend. Highly recommend this place. Professional and nice guy.

    Both guys working the store were really chill and really professional. I went in with my gf because she was getting her nose pierced and he helped my get a gauge out of my ear that was stuck free of charge! Great place overall.

  • This place has it all. Some of the bongs they carry are top of the line. They have all types of smoking products for the canabis enthusiast. I highly recommend a visit while you enjoy a local resturant. This is one of the best head shops I have been to. I bought this bong for $160.

    I’ve gotten a few piercings from Greg at High Hope and each experience has been great. He’s always very thorough with his explanations of after care and provides his info for any follow up concerns. Thanks Greg for a pleasant piercing experience!

  • Our piercer was lovely. He pierced my ear while on vacation and still made it a point that I could reach out to him even miles away. He provided me after care, showed me how to use it, and was really detailed the whole time. He was so detailed made sure I liked it as well as looked even (because both my ears are different) and was overall just amazing. The after care has already started clearly up my nose and I went only yesterday ! Truly was an amazing piercer and would be down to visit again solely to get a piercing from him.

    I really enjoyed the service from stix n studs! I got two cartilage piercings today along with my friend. My other friends got seconds and a belly button piercing. All the services were amazing and Greg could not have been more helpful. I’m coming back for a 2 week checkup in 2 weeks. Thank you again! Highly recommend this place!!

  • Getting my naval piercing for the second time had me a little anxious because of the scar tissue. Greg made the procedure comfortable and quick, and talked me through everything. If you’re getting a piercing, I recommend coming here! Great customer service and clean/safe conditions!

  • I made an appointment to get my industrial done. Susie was super nice at the front desk when I went in and very positive and reassuring me it was going to be okay because I was nervous. Greg did an awesome job measuring my ear and picking the right bar for my ear size. He was quick and it was relatively painless and it looks freaking awesome. I've wanted this piercing done for more than 5 years and I'm so happy that I was able to get it done at High Hope because they did such a great job and they were so welcoming! I would definitely go again to get something else done in the future, and I will be very soon! Thank you so much Greg and Susie I am so beyond happy with my new industrial bar!!!

    My first time ever getting pierced and he was awesome! He really took the time to make them even. He mentioned he has 12 years of piercing experience and it shows! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!
