Established in 2001 by Dana and Doug Tellier, the original business was a small gift shop. Over time, the merchandise was expanded to include smoking accessories. In 2003, after finishing a formal apprenticeship, Doug offered body piercing to the public. With a huge increase in popularity, in 2009, the business needed to expand. They opened a second floor where the piercing and tattooing is done today. In 2014, Doug and Dana passed the business on to their oldest daughter, Melissa Bowman, who has been piercing and managing the day-to-day business since 2009.
Melissa completed her formal apprenticeship for body piercing in 2009. She is also blood borne pathogen certified, First Aid/CPR Certified, and a State of CT Licensed Tattoo Technician. Melissa lives in Coventry, with her husband Eli, and their 3 dogs, and 4 cats.
