I really like Gauntlet. It's within walking distance of my house, and the people there are really helpful and nice.
My ear pierces really aren't, since the holes were still opened (I had my ears pierced when I was 17 or 18.) So, this visit consisted of nothing more than a little stretching, up to 12 gauge. At some point in the future my ears will have blue acrylic in them, probably 4 or 8 gauge, but that's a while off.
