Amory Body Arts

Amory Body Arts is Santa Cruz County's only studio specializing in body piercing and fine jewelry. We are committed to providing our clients with the safest, friendliest, and most professional piercing environment. Amory Body Arts has become Santa Cruz County's premiere piercing only studio, having been featured as the first choice in The Good Times Best of Santa Cruz for Best Body Piercing Studio, and runner-up for Best Jewelry Store. Our piercers and staff are the only members of the Association of Professional Piercers in Santa Cruz County.

Due to the volume we experience during weekends and the extensive time we take to pierce children, we DO NOT accept appointments for Underage Piercings (Ages 7-13) on Saturday and Sunday. This is to avoid and ensure that your children don’t feel rushed, or unnecessarily anxious during their piercing experience.

We're open every day from 11:30pm-8pm, accepting our last walk-in at 7:30pm. Appointments are recommended to avoid wait times.

Piercing Consultation
Have a few questions about your next piercing? Maybe you plan on bringing in your child for their first piercing? Let us help ease those nerves and address any questions or concerns you may have! Please specify which piercing you would like to discuss in the "Appointment Notes" section.
Piercing Check-up
Congratulations on your latest piercing! Once the initial swelling subsides, it's recommended to purchase a smaller ring or shorter post to prevent snagging and catching during day-to-day activities. Be sure to consult the card you received for your specified check-up timeframe.
Jewelry Change
Are you looking to purchase or change jewelry for multiple piercings? We know your time is valuable, so by booking an appointment our knowledgeable staff will be able to assist you with your selection in a timely fashion. **For single piercing downsizes and jewelry insertions an appointment is not required.**
