Pantone.com has announced that this year, will be the year of PURPLE! (Ultra-Violet to be exact) We thought it would be a nice idea to share some information, and some possibilities on how you can use that information for your next jewelry or tattoo.

What is Pantone?

The Pantone Color Institute is a consulting service within Pantone that forecasts global color trends and advises companies on color in brand identity and product development, for the application and integration of color as a strategic asset. Recognized around the world as a leading source of color information through seasonal trend forecasts, custom color development, and palette recommendations for product and corporate identity, Pantone Color Institute partners with global brands to leverage the power, psychology and emotion of color in their design strategy.” – Pantone.com

Often times when a client is choosing new jewelry, the selection of colors we carry can be a little overwhelming. Being able to work with so many amazing, high quality jewelry companies that offer an extremely large selection of colors has always been a great service we are able to provide. With Pantone’s release of the ‘Pantone color of the year’ that selection may be just a little easier for you.

The color purple is a color that may hold more history than you think. As mentioned in the article by Pantone on their website, purple has been used in the past by some very influential people such as Prince, and Jimi Hendrix.

It can be very affordable to change jewelry tops from existing piercings with new purple colored tops, or you can start off with new purple tops. The choice is yours, and the opportunities are endless!

Be it a walk in piercing, or a more planned out curated piercing, this may make things a little easier for you to choose your next color!

Children’s First Ear Piercing!

Getting your first piercing can be a little scary, but with a little preparation, and a knowledgable body piercer, that first piercing will be a fun, and safe event that will be one to remember!

Planning is important when you’re taking someone in for their first piercing. The best first step is to call the studio nearest you, and ask about children’s ear lobe piercings. The studio can help you plan out a good time to come in, look at jewelry, and talk with a body piercer that will best fit.

As a general rule of thumb, most of our body piercers prefer that for children, they are able to verbally tell us what it is they want, and that they understand the process. Comfortability is key here. We want that first piercing with us to be calm, comfortable, and clean.

We also encourage bringing in your child before you plan on getting the piercing. Let them meet the body piercer, look at our jewelry options, and get comfortable in our studio. We don’t want our studio to come off as a loud scary place. This also gives the parent time to get familiar with aftercare products, and procedures to make the healing time after the piercing go smoothly.

New Year New Us…. Sort Of.

In 2018 we are going to put a little more effort into our social media, with both the quality of content, as well as the amount. We will be doing a weekly blog to help bridge the gap between our clients, and all of the amazing things we do as a family through all of our studios. These blogs will be showcasing clients, jewelry, tattoos, artists, piercers, and more! We have recognized that a blog is a great opportunity to go more in depth with who we are, and some of the things we do, so were planning on taking full advantage of that in 2018.

We are planning to be more active specifically on Twitter, Instagram, our blog, and our Tumblr. We want to be able to showcase the best of our piercings, jewelry, tattoos, and the people who make it all happen, and effectively reach as many people as possible. We have made a team specifically to handle our social media, as well as our content creation. You might notice a photographer taking photos while you get your new tattoo, or a new design layout on our website. We are also looking to bridge the gap better between all of our piercing and tattoo family. This not only includes our five Oregon studios, but also our family in HTC Tempe, HTC Phenix, HTC Uptown, Barbella Costa Mesa, and Ten Tigers San Francisco!
