I chose Instinct Adornment for my cartilage piercing based on their website info/photos and customer reviews. I walked in off the street today and was seen quickly and without an appointment. Such a great vibe in the shop, professional, educational, fun folks. Clean and follow all safety precautions to the letter. I enjoyed the experience and am very happy with the service and people! I do not hurt and my piercing looks awesome. Based on my experience I would recommend this place without hesitation!

When my 4 year old expressed interest in getting her ears pierced, I made her wait MONTHS until we could get to Kamloops and have the professionals at Instinct Adornment take care of her.
And honestly, I am so glad we waited.
Every staff member we encountered was happy to be there, helpful and patient.
Jenna and Theo took the time needed to explain everything to my child and to ensure she was happy and completely relaxed. And most importantly, they INCLUDED HER in the entire process. She was even asked to sign her paperwork.
I can't say enough about this business and I strongly urge anyone considering a piercing for themselves or for a child, to even just walk into the studio - their customer service will astound you and I'm confident your decision to get a piercing at Instinct Adornment will be an easy one.
