Top Spots To Get Piercings In South Florida

Last year, we brought you some of South Florida's top spots for getting quality piercing. Subsequently, many of these places also were, and probably always will be, some of South Florida's top spots for getting tattoos. Since the beginning of time, people have been receiving both, whether for spiritual, religious or aesthetic reason. In most recent years, we have seen an influx in "ink" and piercings, as if the world is re-adopting the old ways. And while much of today's tattooing and piercing is done for fashion, we still find it takes a big spirit to do both. More than just ear piercing, we have compiled a list of 5 more top spots for piercing in South Florida.
