Special announcement: Vaughn Body Arts has been very, very busy for some time now. So it is with great pleasure we announce that we have hired another full time piercer. Please give a warm welcome to our dear friend Adam Richins. Adam is a fantastic piercer, offers impeccable customer service and has a wonderful bedside manner. He has worked at such fine studios as Warlock’s in Raleigh, NC and currently is working at WAY Body Arts in Santa Cruz (which sadly will be closing September 5th, so go visit them while you can). Adam will be starting September 23rd at Vaughn Body Arts. We’re very happy to have Adam joining the family, and we know all of you will be too!

Liv stopped by to have our apprentice Brittney do some 4th lobe piercings on her. The 2mm teal opals from anatometal are a great addition to Liv’s other opal jewelry. Great job Brittney, and thank you Liv

Emily’s ears are looking quite lovely. We upgraded her lobes to some beautiful 14k yellow gold pear double milgrain ends with genuine paraiba topaz from Scylla Jewelry. We also did a helix piercings with a simple yet elegant 2mm yellow gold dome. Thank you so much, Emily.

Lilly decided she would like to begin the journey of having stretched earlobes (yay!). We started her off at a 10g with these gorgeous anatometal single flare titanium eyelets, anodized bronze. We’ll give these lobes four months or so and then will see if they’re ready for an 8g. Also, note the lovely healed conch and healing daith piercings we did. Thank you, Lilly!

Kylee stopped in looking for something fancy we could do with her ear. She decided on a daith piercing and chose a lovely anatometal implant grade steel captive bead ring with a cluster of black opals, hand set in implant grade titanium and anodized bronze. Great choice, Kylee. It looks fabulous on you!

Ally has been an awesome client of Cody’s for nearly a decade, and she heals cartilage piercings like nobody’s business. Pictured here is a six year old industrial he did, and a forward helix from a little over a year ago. Ally’s sister got her this lovely new anatometal barbell for her birthday. The bronze anodized finish compliments the peridot gems wonderfully. Thank you, Ally!

This wonderful client of ours looked at dozens of different ends from BVLA and picked this gorgeous Altura threaded end.

14k rose gold with twelve 1mm CZ’s and a 4mm genuine Tanzanite. 

We pierced her VCH with a 12g implant grade titanium curved barbell from anatometal

We do a lot of ear cartilage piercings, and we never get tired of them. It’s fun to see how different each persons anatomy is and help them pick out a piercing and jewelry style that will compliment their ears shape to nestle comfortably. 

Cheylin chose a 4mm titanium bezel-set genuine yellow tigers eye, and it suits her ear beautifully. Thank you, Cheylin. 


Swing by and let us look at your ears. We’ll find the perfect jewelry and placement that’s just right for you.
