    When getting a piercing at 5150 ink you will only have the best piercers in Detroit doing your body piercings. The piercers at 5150 also must have 10 years experience of piercing and only use disposable piercing equipment for every piercing procedure. This virtually eliminates the possibility of bacteria spreading from client to client because we never use the same tool on two clients. Calista, the best piercer in Detroit who has 11 years of piercing experience, sterilizes each piece of jewelry with a steam sterilizer before they are packaged and ready to be used for procedures done at 5150. We have an outstanding track record for piercing's without any complaints of infections or complications.


    Every body is different, so every piercing is different for each person. The only way to know how to do proper body piercing's on different bodies is through experience. Just like our tattoo artists, all of the piercers at 5150 have had 10 or more years experience doing body piercing's We do not allow apprentices for either tattoos or piercing's at our shop and that is to make sure each procedure is done professionally every time.

    Cleanliness is next to Godliness

    Taking proper care of the new piercing in key. If the client does not follow the proper aftercare procedures with their piercing, all that we did to keep that piercing from infection will go out the door. Your piercer will inform your of all your aftercare needs at the end of your procedure.

    Why 5150?

    -5150 Ink is the first shop in the U.S. where all of our artist's use all disposable equipment

    -We are the only shop in Downtown Detroit that is Licensed by the State of Michigan to do body modifications.

    -We guarantee all of our work for life; if you need a touch up on a tattoo an artist at 5150 did, your touch up will not cost you anything because our goal is customer satisfaction!

    Satisfaction Guaranteed

    Our goal at 5150 is to satisfy every client, every time. This is why we give a lifetime guarantee with every single one of our tattoos done at 5150 ink. No other shop in the nation guarantees their tattoos for life, because if they did they would lose money having to touch up shot work on a daily basis. Although we guarantee our work for life, we hardly find ourselves having to do many touch ups, because we do all of our tattoos the right way, the first time.

    Our clients are our future so in order to keep in good standing we treat all of our clients like family. Our shop is set up like a home environment with couches and t. v.'s in every procedure room. It's like going to a friends house to get your work done, but completely safe and sanitary.

    Although we do not use steel needles and tubes that have to be cleaned and sterilized after every procedure, we do have a steam sterilizer to sterilize other equipment and body jewelry and to satisfy heath code regulations.
