I went to Koi to get my nose re-pierced after a piercing I had a year ago got really infected and I had to take it out. I read online that Koi is the best studio in Salt Lake City, and I have to say I can easily agree with that!
The location was fine (although I hate their parking lot). The studio is really warm and inviting and they have a lot of really interesting jewelry on display. They were really friendly and got me in right away to get pierced.
The piercer (whose name I can't remember, unfortunately) was friendly and talkative, and the room where they pierced me was clean. The whole process of the actual piercing took under five minutes -- incredibly fast and easy... it even hurt less than the first time. He also told me what I might have done wrong the first time and gave me some great advice on how to prevent an infection.
They invited me to come back with any questions or problems.
The piercing fee isn't too much, and then you have to buy your jewelry. Mine cost about $60 (before I bought some H2Ocean).
I would definitely recommend Koi to anyone in the area looking to get pierced.
Best Piercing Studio!. I have only gotten one piercing from Koi piercing studio but the experience made me wish I had all of them done here. Koi's atmosphere was both professional and personable, and Patrick who actually placed my surface piercing was excellent. He was very knowledgable of the piercing itself; I thought I had done my homework, but he knew things I hadn't even thought of about it. He was also very straightforward about the risks of getting my surface piercing on my wrist. Overall this is the only piercing studio I recommend to friends and family alike!!
5 Piercings, never leaving. Ive gotten 4 Different piercings since i was 18 and all have been done by Patrick at Koi either initially, or to get a re-pierce. My ears, nipples, lip, and frenum. VERY PERSONABLE. I cracked a retainer piece in my lip a while back and Patrick repierced my lip and put a ring in, It only costed me the jewelry because Patrick is such a nice guy. Got my Frenum pierced TODAY and i havent been more happy with a piercing experience. Patrick is the most professional piercer i know.
THE best piercer and studio!!. Must be in a midlife crisis...On a whim one day I decided I wanted to get my nose pierced, which is way out of my league. Researched piercing studios on the web and Koi came highly recommended. Then, every stranger I ran into with a piercing, I asked where they got it, the pain factor, etc. EVERYONE said Koi. I called, went without an appt and got in rather quickly. Patrick eased my fears, was very professional, explained everything. Told me how to take care of it, etc. I've had no infections, no issues. I cannot recommend Patrick and Koi highly enough. I will never look elsewhere. Huge, huge selection, and THE best staff. Patrick even gives you his number to txt with any concerns afterwards, and he followed up to see if there were any issues. You are treated with so much more than just a "thanks, have a nice day.". Thank you Koi, and thanks Patrick! Recommend you to everyone.
Koi is awesome!. When I first started sizing up in my gauges, I had seen so many of my friends blow out their ears so was really scared to start the process. I went to Koi and asked so so so many questions of how to take care of my ears during the gauging, and they were so thorough and professional with everything. They even help me size up my gauges on a regular basis for free. So awesome! It's that little bit of time and generosity that really makes a business thrive. Thank you, Koi. You have my business as long as you're in business, which I KNOW will be a very long time.
Excellent Apadravya Experience. I had a frenum done about three years ago at Koi, great experience. Finally after many attempts on my part (live so far away) I had the Apadravya piercing done by Patrick. He is a professional of professionals, demonstrating his skill by taking his time for accuracy. I am considering having another (Ap) done. Joking I dont think its possible but "IF" I would have Patrick do it. It was truly and EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE.
Still coming back.
I have lived in Virginia for the last two years and I still make time to come back to Koi where I've had all my work done. I'd trust Patrick with any piercing.
Koi has a sweet collection of jewelry and they are more than happy to order stuff for you if they do not have it in stock.
I have yet to find a better studio anywhere. Anywhere!
Only go here. I went to Patrick to get my nose pierced for my birthday. It was quick and clean. I love how he dabs up tears for noses! So cute. Anywho, I always make my friends who want piercings go here and they are always glad I do. I will only go to Patrick and Koi for my piercings. In fact I plan on going later today.
Love Koi. I have been to a few local studios and none compare to the customer service and satisfaction I have had at Koi. I have been going to Koi for years and everyone there is always friendly and very informational. I flew here from California just to have Patrick help me out with some of my piercings. I would not and have not gone anywhere else since. To everyone at Koi, thanks for all the exellent help!!
I went in with a friend after looking at a few places around the area. We had many people recommend this place and said it was the best. And after visiting I am glad to say they were right.
The studios there are very clean which is great when you are thinking about having a needle put through your skin. They were very helpful when it came to picking out a ring and suggesting what would work best for me, not what would be the best for them in prices.
Patrick did our piercings and he was very skilled in what he did. He explained everything he was doing so that we knew exactly what was going on. And when it came time for the piercings to go through he was as gentle and quick as he could be. Then after they give you advice on what to do to keep your piercing in the best condition and so it will heal the quickest.
Overall: Koi was the best choice on where to go in the Salt Lake area for piercings and if I get anymore work done I personally will pick them.
