    I went in on my Birthday last minute looking to get my nose pierced and Greg squeezed me in between appointments. He was very accommodating and made me feel less nervous. You can tell he loves what he does and he is very professional / clean with his work. He knows what he’s talking about!

    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!!!

    We've been coming here for our herb and piercing needs and we just love this place! The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable, the owner clearly knows what he is talking about and is invested in getting the job done right. I most recently stopped by to change out my labret piercing and had so much fun looking at their different jewelry pieces. I really appreciated the tips and tricks Greg was able to offer on caring for my piercing and apprentice Macey (spelling) is on her way to providing the top notch service I've come to expect from High Hope. 10/10 would recommend!

    I would highly recommended Greg for his piercing. He took his time assuring that they were in the proper position and I was satisfied. He wanted to follow-up and encouraged you to call if there were any issues. Very pleased with his service.

    Best piercing and smoke shop in Newport, very comfortable to get a piercing from Greg, and I've been there for several friends getting them too. Clean environment and helpful along the process. Highly recommend.
    EDIT: And after just a few months the store has been revamped into what I think is the best shop in Rhode Island!!! Awesome!

    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!

  • If you are in need of ANYTHING, come here. To start off, Greg was amazing. He was such good help, knew all of his material, and had a great store for all your necessary purchases. While I was here I went to two other places, but nothing beats High Hope. 100% recommend!

    This place is sooooo good. The workers there are very welcoming and nice. The piercer is such a perfectionist and wants to make sure your happy with what you get. He is very nice and helpful and makes u few comfortable at all times. This place is probably the best place to go in Rhode Island for piercings. Definitely recommend!
