Why has the shop changed?
I Recently Re-Modeled my studio, In the past few months I have drawn/planned the shop refit. So far I have drawn and built all the shop cabinets, extended the piercing rooom and freshly decorated the whole shop.
Still to come, More cabinets, More Jewellery and a Name change for the shop. (keep your eyes peeled)
I use to have a range of alternative gifts in the front of the shop whiched I loved to bits, but i love piercing more! I was juggling between a gift shop and a piercing studio but personally I wouldnt get pierced in a gift shop so why was I expecting all my amazing customers to do so? (hats off they actually did)
I thought it was about time I made my dreams happen, Since my Piercing Career started I've always dreamt about my version of the perfect piercing shop. My dream in its simplest form was a crisp, classy, professional, piercing only studio that has a nice and well displayed jewllery selction. A studio where everyone feels welcome and unintimidated, Believe it or not some people feel frieghtend to enter some studios.
Why is the name Changing?
Simply, I feel the name does not work with the shop re-model, I think now is the time to "re-brand" and have a long term business name that fits the fresh business model. (You can read my next blog Named Percus.)
How long did it take?
About a year of thinking about it
A couple of months on and off drawing/planning,
200 man hours to cut/build/paint the cabinets and desk,
2 people, 15 days and nights to physically ripping apart the shop and re-fitting (approx 260 man hours.)
How much did it cost?
Far far too much - Triple the orignal budget.
Was it worth it???
I love my Piercing Shop!
Why not come on down and get pierced and check the fresh space out?
Below are some picture " From drawings to reality".
