Here’s what people are saying about The End Is Near:

Got my first three piercings here and it was a breeze. Anthony did a great job, and the whole process was super quick and I left lookin’, and feelin’ great!


I got my Helix pierced today by Anthony. Anthony was awesome and made me feel super comfortable. Thank you!


The End Is Near provided me with such a great experience! Truly appreciated the expertise Anthony has for the craft and the vibe the studio has. I never knew how much care and consideration went into piercing until I got to experience it here. Anthony was very accommodating and patient throughout the process, despite all the questions I had asked. There is no better person and place you could trust for this! Really, really happy with my piercing!


I got my rook and helix pierced and had wonderful experiences both times. The piercers are friendly, professional and know how to make their clients feel at ease. They are always willing to discuss the best placements for your jewelry given your anatomy. At the end of the appointment, you are provided with an aftercare sheet as well as the option to purchase saline spray. The shop itself is super sanitary. What I think makes TEIN special is that although they are a speciality piercing shop, they carry quality jewelry for all budgets. With the popularity of constellation piercings, I have been drawn to curated ears but didn’t want to drop so much money on my initial pieces. I love that TEIN is unpretentious in that way. My piercings are healing well, and I will definitely be back for more!


Hali was so professional, thorough and gentle. She made my experience feel so easy and stress free. I highly recommend her & looking forward to getting my future piercings with her here or at Hand of Glory Tattoo & Piercing.


Highly recommend. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Great experience.


My daughter (19) got her belly button pierced today and her BFF got her cartilage pierced, and I just think the guys at The End is Near deserve to know how absolutely thrilled we were with the experience. From the moment we walked in they were professional, courteous and so sweet. I’ll admit to being a nervous mom lol, but they made it a really easy and stress-free experience. Their instructions on cleaning and caring for the piercings were clear, they told the girls what to look for as far as infection etc. and told us to come back in 4 to 6 weeks for them to make sure it’s healing properly. I would definitely recommend The End is Near to anyone thinking about getting a piercing.


Anthony is a gem! My brow piercing was basically painless thanks to his quick and professional technique. Awesome chats too! I’ll be back soon ❤️


If you’re wondering where to start or continue your piercing journey, this is the place! I’ve been coming here since I was 18 (now 22) and have had nothing but wonderful experiences every time. I have had my conch pierced on both ears, as well as my rook on both ears and two helix piercings. All of them healed incredibly well and they made sure I knew how to take care of each new piercing. They are extremely friendly, professional, and passionate about their work and their clients! Anthony has done at least 3 of my piercings thus far and I will always come back for more, he is a gem! Couldn’t possibly recommend them more!


The End Is Near is amazing, I was super comfortable. I got my nostril done. It was fast, I personally did not feel any pain. I am most definitely coming back and planning all my piercings here.


I along with my mom, sister, and family friend all went together to get multiple piercings yesterday and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My piercer was patient, knowledgeable and most importantly gentle while piercing. It’s been 12 hours and I can barely feel my nostril piercing, which is amazing! I can’t wait to go back and will be recommending TEIN to anyone that asks!


At The End Is Near they were so careful and sensitive with regard to safety and sanitation. They also were receptive to guidance on communicating in a way that was accessible and respectful to my daughter, who is deaf and who needed accommodations to make sure she understood everything that’s going on. As a result, she took the healing care very seriously.


Fantastic experience at TEIN. Hali was the sweetest–so calming, walked through every step and made time for questions, and made the process quick and stress-free! Thank you!!


Fair pricing, straightforward service, clearly experienced piercers, good aftercare products.

Made my appt a month before arriving to NYC and it was worth it cuz this place definitely gets booked. but the piercer Anthony was soo nice, and knew exactly what he was doing. talked to me due to how nervous i was. he made it quick and easy. would definitely recommend this place for piercing.

Teri B

My absolute favorite piercing place. The staff is top-notch, super knowledgeable, and friendly. Their jewelry selection is amazing and ranges in different price points. I’ve gotten 4 piercings here and I’ll keep coming back. Can’t say enough good things about this place!

Francesca C

I’ve been going to The End Is Near and Hand of Glory Tattoo & Piercing for close to a year now for all my piercing needs. I’ve needed medical treatment for the last year which has made it super difficult for me to have all of the piercings I do, and continuing to need help taking them in and out. Anthony has helped me every step of the way with everything from removal/insertion whenever it has been needed, helping collaborate with me on what jewelry to pick out when I’ve wanted new ones, to giving me a brand new conch piercing this week that is absolutely perfect! I’m so truly grateful for everything. Anthony is such a considerate and genuine person, amazing at what he does, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else to get new piercings or help with caring for them. Thank you, Anthony!


Anthony was incredible. It had been 20+ years since my last piercing and he was so helpful with placement (conch piercing). His execution was easy and quick and we’ve already made a plan to do more piercings!

Angela K

Anthony did my nose piercing. I was so nervous and he kept talking to me and really settled my nerves. The piercing was super quick and the placement was great. I highly recommend them and recommend him


Very professional place for piercings. Highly recommended.


Got my conch pierced by Hali and it was a fantastic experience! It was my first cartilage piercing and everything went smoothly. She was happy to answer all my questions and took the time to review my ear shape and give her expert insights about where exactly to pierce. I would definitely recommend this spot!


I got two second lobe piercings here a few days ago. The piercer talked me through everything and was very nice and reassuring. The piercing itself was quick and nearly painless. I’m used to new piercings bleeding a bit a few days afterwards but these new ones aren’t bleeding or bothering me at all. I’ll definitely be back for more jewelry, thanks!


Amazing experience. I felt safe and the staff is very knowledgeable.


My 9 year old daughter got her ears pierced here. Anthony the person who did the piercing was very professional and treated us with so much respect. He listened to my daughter’s concerns and totally reassured her. He nailed it! Piercing looks amazing! I also love how he followed up with the scheduling before, day of, and even after. The shop itself has the most beautiful curated selection of earrings. I would want to buy every piece there! I’ll definitely be coming back! Thank you!


Got my septum done, it was my first piercing and the piercer killed it. Super friendly, all around great experience!


Anthony is extremely professional, efficient, passionate, friendly, and fun. I’ve been to him twice, first for a nose-ring replacement and secondly for a nipple piercing. Unlike many tattoo shops where piercing is an afterthought, TEIN is focused around piercing, and Anthony is clearly experienced, excited, and passionate about the professional process and the art of body piercings. Heartily recommend – I wouldn’t trust my other nipple with anyone else!


Anthony was extremely courteous in my brief visit to get a gunky piercing removed. He cleaned another piercing that was troubling me and advised me on how to better clean it! I had a few inquiries about making a future appointment for a new piercing which he also answered graciously. It was definitely worth the 2 hour trip to visit TEIN as a first-time customer! I’ll gladly return here for all my piercing needs in the future and will be recommending to friends. :)


I had my second nostril piercing done by Hali yesterday. She was absolutely phenomenal and had excellent customer service. She made me feel at ease and really ensured that the piercing was symmetrical with my other piercing. You can tell that she takes her job seriously and is diligent in cleanliness, execution, and overall professionalism. I also appreciated the Black Friday discount I got. I will definitely be returning customer! Thank you TEIN!


Anthony was an amazing specialist. He helped my eight-year-old daughter feel so comfortable while piercing her ears. She has raved about him for two days now. He answered all of her questions, treated her as an individual. His technique was immaculate, gentle and done in the blink of an eye. I would recommend Anthony to perform this milestone for anyone.


Clean and comfortable settings with professional, knowledgeable & very helpful staff. Also their jewelry selection is very pretty & stylish. Anthony was the best!


Took my daughter for a nose piercing here and they were amazing. They explained everything and it was impeccably clean. Good selection of jewelry. Highly recommend!


I had the absolute best experience getting my cartilage + second lobes pierced here. Anthony was kind and professional–he answered all my questions and made the process a breeze even though I was nervous. You can tell he is a true professional, and the experience was worth every penny. Could not recommend more highly! 10/10


This place is great – very professional and pain-free. I took my daughter here (twice) and both times Anthony did a fabulous job. He is an expert and a lovely person and I would recommend him to anyone!


This was possibly the best piercing experience I’ve ever had. I came in with my siblings and we got matching “helix”piercings. Anthony was personable, professional, and the actual piercing process didn’t even hurt. Would highly recommend!


omg, love this!! i was just there getting my first piercing, the guy was so nice, and the store was super cute. (it also smelled very good too haha) and although it’s not cheap, it’s a very great place to get your ears pierced! 🥰


Amazing! Anthony the piercer answered all my questions and downsized my industrial to an Anatometal 16g. He helped me even earlier than what my appointment was. And I got beautiful Neometal pieces for my earlobes. Great place, nice people in their small trusted studio with implant grade jewelry!


I always get my piercings here. I love Anthony he is my favorite. He is so kind and welcoming. He never steers me wrong. The place is clean and the staff is professional.


What a gem of a shop! The atmosphere is very welcoming and non-intimidating. I love that they specialize in piercings only so you’re confident that they’re honed in on their craft. Everything is kept immaculately CLEAN and the rooms are sanitized from top to bottom after every client. There was no crowd waiting to be helped because it’s by appointment only. So glad!! Anthony, my piercer, made me feel very comfortable and gave great recommendations. He took the time to make sure I was satisfied with the piercing placement and did a great job with explaining aftercare. I highly recommend The End is Near!


I came here because the place I went to to get my nipples pierced was just a total nightmare. I wish I would have found this place to get my nipples done instead. I wish I could remember his name but he was so patient with me funny and sweet in changing out my nipple piercing and inserting a longer bar due to the amount of swelling. You rock dude!!


I worked with Anthony. Such a sweetheart and made me feel at ease the entire time.


I love the service I receive here. Anthony is my favorite. He is my go to piercer for me and my daughter. I love the jewelry selection and the staff never steers you wrong.I got my nose pierced there and it healed great.


Wonderful experience! Staff was knowledgeable and kind, and gave us a great rundown on what to expect and aftercare. Went with a group and all of our piercings look great!


Just got a conch piercing done by Anthony last week. Wish I could leave more than 5 stars!
There is a reason I’ll travel an hour on the subway to go here.
1) The place is meticulously clean. You feel like you’re getting pierced in a doctor’s office.
2) The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. And if you’re new to piercings, the experience is not intimidating in the slightest.
The. Best. Hands. Down.


Jules was very professional and friendly. The shop is sanitary and clean. She made me feel comfortable throughout the process. She did it beautifully and fast! Then, she thoroughly explained how to take care of the piercing afterwards. Never got any infections, healed nicely. Highly recommended!


Had my ears pierced with Jules at Hand of Glory. She was very professional, honest, patient, and detail-oriented. The shop was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend for piercings!


Had my second lobe piercings here last week by Jules and it was far and above better than any place I’ve ever been. I felt comfortable and informed at each step in the process. Definitely intending to return for future piercings, highly recommend.


I brought my son in to have his earlobes pierced for the first time – everyone there was chill and friendly, putting him totally at ease, but at the same time totally professional. The place was immaculate, and he barely flinched during the whole procedure. We’ll definitely be back…for him, and for myself!


Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality

Fanny B

Great place! Super professional and clean.


What a wonderful experience! I went to The End Is Near on a whim for my first piercing in 7 years. The staff was very friendly and professional. There was a good selection of quality jewelry, and everything was extremely clean. My piercer was awesome. I’d recommend this place to anyone looking for a piercing!


I got a beautiful daith piercing done  today. The jewelry is all beautiful, the employees in the shop are so friendly and knowledgeable. I’m going to continue to get pierced here and cannot recommend it enough. Thank you guys so much!!


Great place and very sanitized, I got my second piercing from here and they changed their gloves between every step! My piercing is healing nicely as well :)


Wonderful experience! I loved the jewelry options. I also enjoyed pleasant conversation with Anthony while waiting and during the piercing process. Highly recommend!

Mackenzie S

Very clean! Very professional!

Sandra R

Very professional and clean. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Kerresha J

Very professional and helpful and sanitary.

Monica A

I’ve had two experiences at TEIN, once in 2017 and again just today each time with earlobe piercings. Both times the experience was fantastic in terms of service, product selection (they have plenty of cute earrings, different sizes and styles), clealiness, and overall comfort. For my piercing today, Anthony was my piercer and he was awesome, I couldn’t have asked for better. He was super personable, professional, made sure to take the proper cleanliness and sterilization precautions but most importantly he took my mind off of being nervous just by being conversational and super pleasant! I definitely recommend The End is Near to anyone looking for piercings. Because they set the tone that they did on my first visit, it’s no surprise that I went back even though I don’t live in Brooklyn anymore…..just shows how far a person will travel for quality, thanks again Anthony! 😁👍


I had a fantastic experience here getting my conch pierced! The jewelry is also beautiful and high quality and I can’t wait to buy more once my piercing heals. Can’t recommend this place highly enough!


I’ve gotten two piercings here and everybody has been professional and friendly! I always feel taken care of.


Went in and got another piercing alongside a mate who was getting their first ever! The staff were super supportive of them through the anxiety- knew exactly what to say, didn’t rush them, and stayed very flexible.They were awesome about cleanliness, and just so lovely.The facility is well kept, and they’ve got a nice array of tasteful jewelry.I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to a first timer or a veteran.Thanks team!


It was my 1st time coming here and it was absolutely amazing! Everything was clean and neat and just felt overall really good. My piercings came out absolutely perfect! I read some reviews about the prices being up there, and yes BUT with the beautiful jewelry and the wonderful service it was worth every penny. I can’t wait till I decide what else I want and come back


Got my septum pierced here and had a wonderful experience. Super professional, friendly, and thorough about the piercing process and aftercare. The amount of gloves he used was beyond what I could count, but appreciated! The procedure barely hurt and was perfectly positioned! My favorite jewelry pieces from here are outside of my price range, but they have lovely stuff. I will be going here for the remainder of my piercings and look forward to getting that vertical labret in next time!!


My friend and I had a phenomenal experience getting our ears pierced here. Our piercer Jules was extremely kind, skilled, knowledgeable and professional. She gave us her well informed opinions on piercing placement and choosing the best jewelry. So far our piercings are healing beautifully without any pain. I’m looking forward for the next time i want something pierced or tattooed, I will definitely be coming back! Highly recommend for a clean space and excellent experience!


Very professional environment that takes safety seriously, and the staff is kind and patient.

Lara A

Took our 6- year old daughter to get her ears re-pierced, they got infected last year from a different place. The End Is Near was GREAT with her, and us. Explained everything clearly, chose posts specific to her ear width, and did the piercing painlessly. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.


Came early and didn’t realize I should have an appointment BUT they were nice enough to take me as a walk in as they weren’t busy 😊 The place is nice and super clean! I came to get a second piercing above the ones on my lower part of my ear lobes! I would absolutely recommend this little gem of a piercing parlor & would definitely consider coming back if I decide to get more ear piercings!

Katie Marie

Extremely professional and clean- I had a great time getting a piercing done here, and I highly recommend this place. My piercer was extremely professional, kind, and funny.


I had such a good experience with my last piercings at The End Is Near that when I wanted to get a conch piercing I didn’t even bother looking elsewhere. (It doesn’t hurt that I live super close.) I recommend The End Is Near!
Super friendly, impeccably clean, comfortable spot to go to for whatever piercing you need. They answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the jewelry and/or piercing process. They explain aftercare clearly and ask you to come back about 4 weeks later to follow up on how the piercing is healing. They work safely and not rushed, and they have great music playing. Go there!!!
Got my nose pierced! Super clean and professional! Great experience and they answered all my questions!
Friendly, amazing people. Would recommend to everyone!
I’ve been eying this spot for about a year and finally got around to pulling the trigger on a new ear piercing. And I’m so glad I did! I’ll never go anywhere else for piercings as long as I live in NYC. Since I’m incredibly indecisive and wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted, I stopped by on a Tuesday evening after work to take a look at jewelry and ask questions. Anthony was super helpful and patient while I deliberated between jewelry options and placement (and asked a LOT of questions) and helped me land on a beautiful opal conch piercing that I could not be more happy with! I feel like he really listened to what I was looking for. And I should mention too that they have a wide variety of options (which I love) but I never felt pressured in any one direction/price point, which is especially important to me any time I’m considering throwing down a good chunk of change. Would recommend to anyone. Kudos!!
The staff is always professional, patient, and kind. Everything is clean and sanitary. The selection of jewelry ranges from simple to intricately beautiful. 10/10 would (and do) recommend.
I got my naval pierced here today and had the BEST piercing experience. All of my other piercings (3 in my lobes and a nose ring) were all done with a piercing gun when I was younger and I wasn’t sure how well I would do because I’m terrified of needles but I felt relaxed and at ease the entire time. Definitely going back to get my helix pierced.
Quick and painless ear lobe piercing. Great selection of jewelry. Have become a return client.
I love this place! They’ve pierced my ears, both my daughter’s ears, etc… Always courteous, safe, and friendly.
I went in for something very basic (decided to get my ear lobes pierced for the first time) and the staff was extremely professional, helpful, friendly and thorough. The space was clean and the jewelry was beautiful. Did I spend a little more than I was planning on, yes, BUT in my opinion very worth it. I’m actually kind of upset that the experience was so good because now I want to go back and get more done.
Small, intimate. Very professional. No hard sell on jewelry. Piercer was fast, informative and helpful with recommendations on aftercare and a follow up to check healing. I have been going to Maria Tash in Manhattan but this place is much closer, less expensive and has better service. HIGHLY recommend!

Got my tragus pierced after reading up that in fact NO it will not make you paralyzed. My piercer made me feel safe and confident in the placement and execution, and didn’t haggle on jewelry choice – actually made me feel good about my “cheap” choice. I’m always glad to support local businesses especially ones of beauty and self expression. Excited to start getting more piercings and utilizing their Friday BOGO stacked piercings exclusive while it lasts!

So so so happy with my new nostril piercing! My piercer placed it perfectly for my nose shape and preferences. Everything was very clean and I felt comfortable the entire time. Seeing other people’s horror stories online made me feel super grateful that I chose this place. It’s been two days and everything is healing perfectly! Thanks again!

Got my ears pierced here last week, and my piercer was super friendly, quick, and professional. Just walked in after snagging and yanking out an earring and not being able to get it back in, and another piercer helped me out on the spot, also very friendly. Great experience all-around.


Truly enjoyed my experience in getting a piercing here! All of the staff I interacted with were so kind and calming. I was a bit nervous but was kept very comfortable with Hali the one who pierced me. They were so helpful in keeping me comfortable and relaxed throughout the process! Everything felt really safe and my piercings were easy and look great! Would highly recommend coming here!

I went in for an appointment to receive a nipple piercing. Anthony was super professional and personable. His workspace was clean and the equipment was well sterilized. The whole process took less than ten minutes with minimal pain. The healing process has been very smooth so far with no swelling, soreness or irritation. I highly recommend him for your next piercing!

I love these guys! They are extremely diligent, keep the utmost hygiene and well sterilized equipment, and they take the time to explain what they’re doing, what to expect, and give you the chance to ask all the questions you need to. They also give honest advice without trying to sell you expensive things. And they are kind and don’t make you feel self-conscious, even if you’re a newbie to piercings. All of them also have a sense of humor and make the whole experience very easy and pleasant. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!


Very cool atmosphere, amazing selection of jewelry. Jules was incredibly helpful and made me feel at ease through entire process ❤️


These guys are really amazing! High recommend them as they are super chill and are super friendly.


Did not get pierced, just went for jewelry, but they left a GREAT impression. Anthony helped me pick out septum jewelry and was kind, honest, and super helpful! Gave great recommendations and was very knowledgeable. They had a nice selection of jewelry as well.


Very helpful. I wanted to go in for a piercing for something that I thought was closing up but it turns out that that was not needed. It was just getting tighter. They helped me to push an earring through and that was it. Super quick.


Got my nostril and second helix piercing here. The guys were so great- I had my old stud from my first helix piercing, and I wanted to use it for my second helix. They looked at it, asked me where I bought it from, looked at the piercing place I had gotten my previous piercing, and were totally willing to let me use it because they were like “this place looks pretty reputable.” Which I thought was GREAT because 1) it was reputable, and 2) I didn’t want to go back to SF to get my second helix piercing which I would’ve considered versus paying for another bland titanium stud so 3) THANK YOU GUYS

Very informative, professional. My piercer checked on me the whole time, didn’t make me feel bad for taking so long to choose my nose piercing jewelry, and let me try out various looks by bringing the stud up to my nose. It felt really good to not feel pressured re: taking someone’s time.


I visited this place for the first time on my birthday last September. Since my nose was already pierced, I just bought a new nose ring and they put in for me. I later returned in the spring to get a new piercing. The service was good. The guys were helpful. The black piercer who reminded me of Lenny Kravitz and Donald Glover in one knows what he’s doing. Though he doesn’t say much, there’s a level of professionalism he displays. He takes the time to talk to you about caring for the piercing and gives good advice about the metal and the design of each jewelry. I’m thinking about returning for my birthday this year again for another monumental piercing!


Made an appointment for me and my friend at the beginning of the week and I’m so happy I’ve chosen this place to get our earlobe piercings done. The jewelry selection is pretty wide, the place is very clean. Anthony did an amazing job, that was a pleasant experience! I will definitely come back.


Went in today to get a new earring for my helix piercing. The hoop I had recently put in was too small as well as painful. I was very nervous, as I have not had good experiences at other piercing places in the past. Anthony immediately put me at ease and was very helpful in solving my problem. The next time I get something done I will definitely be going here!
