    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!

    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

    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!

    I come to High Hope/ Stix n Studz for all my piercings and I always have an amazing experience. Greg is very professional and experienced, I always feel very comfortable in the shop! My piercings always heal great and there's a very large selection of jewelry as well. I highly recommend coming here for all your piercing needs.

  • 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!!!

    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!

    My friends and I were on girls weekend in Newport and came across High Hopes. We all were privileged enough to be pierced by the G.O.A.T — Greg, of course. He was so professional, knowledgeable, pleasant, fun etc etc! We loved him!!! See you soon Greg ( . ) ( . )

  • 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!
