You have to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em – but not at Royal Flesh Tattoo and Piercing because it offers a free artistic consultation. The certified body modification experts will be honest about price, pain, how long it will take to heal (ears generally heal much faster than navels, for example) and the best jewelry for your particular piercing – which is exactly what one should get from a piercing experience. Royal Flesh is as sterile as a hospital but a lot more fun.
