Posting to hopefully stop someone from wasting their time and money like i did. let me just say that at first i was really happy with my visit. johnny, the piercer who pierced my nose, was incredibly nice and seemed to really know what he was doing. placement was great, as i got my nose double pierced and it looked great! i was so impressed that i brought a friend there about a week later to get her nose pierced. when we arrived we signed in and she paid. there was about 5-6 people ahead of us all waiting to be pierced. we were hungry so we approached the front desk to ask if we would be able to go grab something to eat and if they could call us IF we werent back by the time everyone ahead of us was done. we were only planning on being gone for maybe 20 minutes so this was highly unlikely. the INCREDIBLY RUDE woman (red hair and glasses) who was working the front desk snapped at us saying "cant you see im busy i dont have time to be calling people". so we asked how long she thought the wait would be so we could for sure be back, she cuts us off and says "we dont do appointments and we DONT do refunds so if you leave youre without your money and out of luck". UHM?? theres no need to be snippy and rude when im asking a simple question. we then witnessed this woman checking her facebook, and being rude to other people in the lobby. SOOOOO busy i guess. my friends nose ended up having terrible placement and today i realized that my nose has only been pierced halway for god only knows how long because my hoops had no ball or anything to hold them in place in my nostril. this makes zero sense to me as to why that seemed like a good idea. now im going to have to get repierced. i MOST DEFINITELY will not being returning to ASG, i can tell you that much!!

I do not recommend going here. I went in with a friend to get our nipples pierced. The whole time I was in there the talked badly about the other piercing places in the area including the one that had done all my other tattoos and piercings (Unity Studio). The receptionist was very rude and was on her phone a lot. When mine were done he did a freehand piercing (no marking) without tools (clamps) and had me sitting up (versus laying down). The piercings ended up being very crooked. I returned to get my money back in which I was disrespected, yelled at and treated like I had no knowledge of what they did wrong when I had gotten multiple professional insights. They had offered to put another hole in the one that was crooked which would have been detrimental to the healing process which I refused to do. Thankfully I was able to get my money back since I was not keeping the piercings in and would have to take them out and get them re done. After my encounter with the owner, one of the employees then contacted me unprofessionally and accused me of yelling at the owner and and being a child (neither of which I did) and cussed at me and called me profane names. I will never return here and I do not recommend anyone else to either. Go to Unity Studio. Much better service, better jewelry better work and nicer people.
EDIT: I went back to support a friend and not only did they loudly confront me about this review, but they also spent the entire time talking about my review to my friend instead of focusing on her piercing. She is a minor and they used the f-word multiple times while talking to her. The professional thing to do after a bad review is to try and rectify the situation. As another reviewer said, very unprofessional and not how to run a business. Save your money and time, go to Unity. My initial piercing by Adam was a good experience. I really liked him and was happy with my piercing. However, when I had my jewelry changed by Johnny, it was painful and confusing. My piercing immediately became infected and irritated. I went to Unity to get titanium put in and they told me that he had ripped the hole, causing the jewelry to start migrating out of my ear. They removed it free of charge. I bought two earrings from ASG and just tried to return one since I cant wear it anymore. The receptionist just said "No returns!" And didnt even ask why I was returning. It was still in the original packaging, the least they can do it refund me and throw it out. Terrible customer service and very unprofessional work. You will be amazed at how much better Unity is.
I got my tragus pierced here about a month ago and Im not pleased with it. I got it done and within 4 days the ball fell off because they pierced it with a post that was way too short for the amount of swelling. When I went back in, they gave me a longer post, and the ball fell off of that one within a few days. Valparaiso is about an hour away from my house so its hard to get up there constantly to get it fixed. Now I have messed up tragus piercing because I had to try to put it in myself. I have gotten about 10 other piercings from other places and have never ever had a ball fall off. Usually I have to go back to the piercer to get the ball taken off because it is on there so tight. Oh... Not to mention while I was there the first time, all they did was talk about how much better they were than every other piercing place in the area. My boyfriend got his daith pierced the same day and was told by several other piercers that it was done incorrectly. We will not be returning and definitely would not recommend.
My wife and I were walk ins with a general idea of tattoos that we wanted to get. We had a very positive experience and Adam made time to fit us into his already busy schedule. He was very patient and took the time to draw up our ideas and work through them with us. Since it was our first tattoos, the staff were very educational on what to expect and how to care for the tattoos. Adam ended up having to stay late just to fit us in, but was happy to do so. One week later, our tattoos are looking great and healing up much better than what internet research had shown as the expected norm. Will definitely come back here again and recommend to friends.
On a whim I walked into the shop wanting a piercing. I was welcomed in by the front desk girls. Very sweet and professional! I had the privilege of having Johnny piercing my septum. He was very professional and explained everything before he even started. During the process I passed out twice haha, I feel bad but he assured me it was completely normal. (Or was trying to make me feel better) Either way, he did an amazing job! I will definitely be coming back to see him for any future piercings or tattoos. Its a great atmosphere, good prices, professional, and just feels comfy. Like home. Thanks yall!
I loved the feel of that place. Adam was the one who did mine and my best friends tattoo and he was super nice and answered all of our questions. I didnt feel like he was getting annoyed by our questions. One part of my tattoo was taking to my skin because of the color and Adam gave us 3 months to go back and refix it without a charge! Definitely will come back for my next one :) I would highly recommend them to anyone getting a tattoo done.
