I have gone to Koi for the last 15
years. I started with my nostril (98), then tongue(99), then hood(00), then tandem nipples(02), hood(03) another time, and then industrial (05). I have NEVER had a single problem with a piercing from there. When I got my belly button done elsewhere(00), it was immediately infected, the quality of the jewelry was absolutely sub par, and I vowed never to go anywhere else again. I plan to go back and get more, and typically buy my jewelry only from them, where they will autoclave it right in front of you if they don't have one sterilized already.
I have and will always recommend that people I know go there, for the cleanliness, professionalism, quality of work and materials (internal threads only for these guys!), jewelry selection, and vast knowledge of their industry. You can do no better than Koi for your piercing!
i got my "rook" pierced last august and last night after fighting with it for 7 months not to be sore and slightly infected the bar completely came through the cartilage! :((( so thank you KOI Body Piercings in Salt Lake City, UT for charging me $60 for a fd up ear and cleaning solution that did nothing!... i appreciate it.
Koi is the best. I've gotten both my navel and my industrial pierced at Koi by Patrick and I haven't had any problems with them. They have an impressive selection of jewelry and the people who work there don't make me nervous about getting pierced. 10/10
Continuously good experience with Koi! I've got a double helix, tragus, and septum piercing from Patrick, the head piercer. Very friendly, non-judgemental staff and welcoming, clean environment. Have returned for tips on jewelry cleaning and such, and was helped quickly and completely. Several of my friends also have piercings from Koi as it's the only place in Salt Lake City we trust.
Awesome experience with Koi, been going for years, mostly just to buy their great selection of jewelry, but I recently got pierced there and it was quick and I felt comfortable, your always in good hands at Koi. They take care of you and will help change your jewelry for free, all their staff and piercers are super nice and friendly too. Definitely recommended.
Safe, reliable body modification..
I’d heard good things about Koi for years. I finally decided to find out for myself when I decided to have my right nostril pierced a few months ago.
Walking in, I felt right at home. Portraits of tribes across the world hung on the walls, an ode to the history of body modification. The 2 staff members at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I was asked for my I.D. and signed the paperwork. While waiting (there was a group of girls ahead of me, which is typical for a Friday evening), I took some time to check out their merchandise.
There are 5 glass cases, all filled with beautiful jewelry, most of it being for stretched earlobes. Upon asking one of the employees about the material of a few pieces, he told me everything I wanted to know and even took them out of the case for me to hold.
I see many reviews written by people who were pierced by Patrick, but I believe my piercer’s name was Jen.
The piercing itself took less time than my wait. Jen took the time to see where the stud would look best for my nose shape, and marked the spot with what looked like a toothpick. She asked whether I liked the spot, which I did. When the needle went through, my eyes watered, but it wasn’t too painful. Putting in the stud was a little rougher, though. She handed me a hand mirror so that I could admire my new body mod. I thanked her and was on my way!
I paid about 65 for the piercing and jewelry and tipped her 25. I went home, feeling like a rockstar.
A week or so later I went to a party, and after a few too many Jager Bombs, I woke up the next morning with a closed nostril piercing and the stud had disappeared. I called the studio and they gave me some advice, which was to wait a few weeks and then to come and have it done again. Money down the drain, yes, but a mistake I won’t make again.
So, after a few months, I went in and Jen did it a second time. Just as well, and this time with a different kind (one less likely to fall out).
If I have ever have another piercing I’d like done, this will be the place. Clean, professional, and the kind of place I feel at home.
ALSO, they’re honest! While picking out my jewelry the second time, I pointed to a pretty piece that I liked. The girl at the counter let me know that it was 78 dollars, and I was quick to choose a cheaper piece.
Awesome Experience. I went in to get a lip piercing. The wait time wasn't bad. Patrick pierced me, he is very professional. It was quick and easy. They gave me a pamphlet that had tips and warnings for piercings which was very helpful because, it was my first time getting any piercing. The pamphlet was well written and easy to understand, also had some humor. I'm defiantly going to go there again for my industrial.
Great Piercing Experience!. I had wanted my nose pierced since I was like 12 and I finally decided I was going to do it. I did a lot of research and found KOI. I read a lot of reviews and didn't see any bad ones. That's when I knew that's where I wanted to go. I traveled three hours to go. Patrick did my nose piercing. He did an amazing job and put me at ease. He joked around and was really nice! I'm very very happy with my peircing and if I were to get another one I would definitely go back to KOI!!
Best piercing experience I've ever had with Koi.
In November, I got my vch done by Patrick on my 18th birthday. It was a great time and and my overall experience was great! I would definitely recommend going to Koi and I will totally keep going for any future work.
Patrick did an amazing job with the placement which i was a bit concerned about before getting it done. Patrick is very slick. He is also fun, friendly and professional. He even let me bring in a couple friends while he did the work.
The people at the front are also friendly and will answer any questions you might have and such. The place is clean and they also have really cool jewelry and gauges for sale .Such an awesome shop!
A friend and I went to Koi in September after hearing many great recommendations, and Koi completely lived up to it's name. While I merely had my ears and tragus pierced, my friend decided to get dermal anchors and was extremely nervous. However, her fears were quickly put to rest by the calm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone who works there is great and the shop is very clean! Patrick performed our piercings and it was a delight. He knew what he was doing. He was precise, professional, and FUNNY. :) They also played great music! Neither of us have had any issues with our piercings because we followed the instructions and tips that were in the brochure they gave us afterwards.
Thanks, Patrick for doing a great job and putting up with a couple of silly teenage girls. :)
