I have had four piercings done by Liz am she is amazing! She never tells you when she is about to do it so, like she said, it's over before you knew it happened". I have gone in on days she has not been working and I have left because I trust her so much! Everyone is really professional and there is a huge selection of jewelry. I have a snug conch and navelx2 all done by this shop. If your In the area go there! It's worth it!Posted by: SFeltis
Amazing service, and very helpful. I had a piercing done at another place and it was the worst one I've seen. I went to dragon butterfly they did an awesome job on it the second time. Very clean, professional and nice. If you want peircings go here probably the best place in dartmouth and HalifaxPosted by: me
I've had all of my piercings done here (13 of them) and am VERY happy with my results. My sleeve is also being done here and it's a work in progress but beautiful already. They also have a VERY large selection of jewelery. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They are also very clean and will show you exactly how they clean their instruments if you ask. If you're looking for tattoos or piercings I highly recommend the Dragon and Butterfly Tattoo and Piercing Studio.Posted by: Very Satisfied
There has been no tattoo or piercing shop at 19 Portland St. for three years. The building was raised in 2007Posted by:
I was pierced here and it was done crooked and they used a post that was too short so it got sucked into my lip. They are also rude....DON'T GO HERE.Posted by:
