    This allows us to guarantee a smooth process for both the client and service provider.

  • Schedule coordination and booking

    To allow our service providers to focus more on what they LOVE to do we’ve taken out all the desk/phone work.

    Our front staff handles all communication for booking clients and rescheduling as needed.

  • Client follow-up

    It’s important to show our clients we care about the full experience of their body modification.

    Our client’s care doesn’t stop once the service is complete. Our front staff contacts each client to follow up on healing and making sure everything is going smooth for them all the way to the very end.
