​Piercer/Tattoo Apprentice

Grumps started their piercing career with us at A Touch Of Color under our old piercer in the beginning of 2017, and has continued their studies to better their craft every chance they get. They are friendly, helpful and professional. For a new piercing, or even help with an existing one, feel free to stop by the shop or give us a call and ask for Grumps for any piercing questions, they are always happy to help!  You don't need an appointment for basic piercings, but we do recommend calling ahead to ensure you that Grumps is in, and if there is any wait. 

*Please call ahead to schedule an appointment for genital piercings.
