  • 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 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!

    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!

    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.

    I went in here on Valentine's Day to get my nose pierced, it was something I wanted to do for over 10 years. After reading all of the wonderful comments about Greg and his staff, I finally did it. He and everyone made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The place is clean and well maintained. I'm happy I made this my choice to have it done

  • 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!

    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.

    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!

    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!!

  • My teenage daughters have been begging to have their nose pierced. I must say that I am so impressed by Greg's professionalism and attention to detail. He made sure that the location of the piercing was absolutely perfect. He took the time to thoroughly explain the piercing and most importantly the cleaning and healing process. Greg also noted to call if there are further questions and to stop in two weeks to have it looked at. My girls were over the moon happy! The piercings look amazing and they're already planning their next one. Thank you!

    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!
