Great experience!!! Will go back! – So after much thought I finally decided to go ahead and get a few piercings I've always wanted to get but have been too scared to do.
I went by myself and it was late afternoon. They were steadily busy but the staff was helpful and polite.
When it was finally time for me to go back and get pierced - my piercer was totally awesome, Autumn I believe her name was. She sat me down and talked to me about what I wanted to have done and walked me through the process, never rushing me. She did a great job - and upon checking out the guy that works there suggested I get provon soap along with H2Ocean to ease the after care. His suggestions worked great along with the at home care sheet they provided! I went back about a month after that to have them take a look at my navel piercing (which was NOT done by them). Corrina took her time to speak with me - the piercing had suffered trauma and had started to migrate. She gave me some suggestions for possibly keeping it in but was honest about the chance that it might be best to remove it. She also gave me a 5$ off coupon. I followed her advice and removed it and she was right - it healed up with no problem (wish I would've went to them first). I'm a bit late in writing this review but I want to say they are the BEST in Charlotte - do yourself a favor and go here for any of your body piercings. They are experienced in what matters most and have your best interest in mind!!!!! You guys are awesome!
Horrible over the phone! – I called this business to inquire about a piercing. I only had 2 questions to ask because I have never gotten a piercing before. Before I finished the first question the woman on the other end of the phone was already giving me attitude. I apologized to her if she misconstrued my question but then she let her coarse demeanor fire back yet again. If this business pierces the way they answer questions over the phone good luck!
can i get this done here?? – i would like to get my nose and maybe a cartlige piercing or to and im 14 can i get it done here?
can I? – can i get my belly pierce at 14 in this place??
yes you can. we just need your parent to sign for you and please bring some sort of Id for yourself
Best place in charlotte for piercings! – I have gone to Sadu's for over 8 yrs and wouldnt trust anyone else with my piercings! But from time to time , you will get attitude from some of the girls who work there! Dont let there sometimes bad attitude deter you, they are still the best place to get pierced by far!
little miss bad attitude is gone. we have an amazing staff. come in and see for yourself :))
GREAT piercers HORRIBLE customer service – I've came in to Sadu three times, twice with my friends to get their piercings, and another time to get piercing jewelry transferred. The woman who does most of the piercings is AMAZING! She's nice, always has an answer to your question, and is very patient with scared/nervous customers. Although all three times I've been there I've had a very unpleasant experience with the woman who ran our credit cards and gets the jewelry sterilized. She always has an attitude and hates to deal with people or answer questions. I remember I asked her a question about some jewelry and she actually said "I don't know and I don't care." But I will continue to go there because the piercer is amazing.
the girl with the attitude was fired july 2010. im the owner. i was trying to help the girl out. her attitude was unacceptable. i appologize. come check out our new staff. you will love them.
Could have been better!!! – I've been here several times, first time with my daughter after she had the bad experience with Tattoo Bill's piercing, several times by myself and/or with my girlfriends. This place is definitely a step up from Tattoo Bill's piercing (please notice that piercing is all they do, no tattoo here), though it did go up and down in the customer service department sometimes. Corina is great since she is the head piercer and all; but every once a while, they'd hire some girls who doesn't know what she is doing (my review is a sumery of me going to Sadu for almost 2 years) I guess we all take chances here, just remember wherever you go, please ask for their credentials, portfolios, sterilizing equipments, etc. (I'm a nurse by the way) Your health is the uttermost importance
this is the owner corinna. the girl with the attitude problem is GONE. im happy about it too. we have an amazing staff that will be around for many years to come. :))
Excellent! – I honestly don't know where anyone could come up with a complaint about sadu! Knowledgeable and sanitary personnell, pleasant lobby, you would be hard-pressed to find a better piercing place in charlotte ^_^
Accolades for Sadu! – I've lived in Charlotte my whole life, and I'm no stranger to Central Ave. I've been to Sadu to watch my friend get an Industrial there and talked to another friend who had her belly button pierced at Sadu as well. When I went with my friend for his Industrial, I was very impressed by how his piercer explained the piercing and necessary aftercare. When I went to get my first piercing, my bellybutton, it was done very well and my piercer was very careful throughout the procedure. I was even more impressed when I received my second piercing though! She worked very carefully and also took time to make sure that I was comfortable with the procedure and to talk about my concerns. And also she did the actual piercing very quickly, which is very important especially for sensitive areas! i would definitely recommend Sadu to anyone looking to get a piercing. Their customer service isn't great, but I think that's because they aren't very amiable. They do their job well, however, and they are certainly willing to talk to you about your piercing before and after.
Piercer didn't know how to shape a nose ring – It seems a lot of people forget that tattoo/piercing folks are employed because of their skill. Not their people skills. I have been to many studios and have grown accustomed to this; although, rarely, you will find a skilled artist or piercer that also has great service as well.
My girlfriend and I went to Sadu last weekend to buy a new nose stud for an existing piercing. The girl at the front counter was nice and did the typical pull stuff out of the case for us to look at. When we picked out the piece that we wanted, she called the owner of the shop who is I guess the main piercer. Nose rings have to be "fitted", in that they need to be cut down to size and given a little curl at the end so it won't fall out.
The owner came out and began to curl the stud but stopped halfway through and asked us how it was supposed to be shaped. I would presume that a piercing shop owner would be familiar with the fundamentals of how nose piercings work. After we explained to her how it was supposed to look she was able to duplicate it. She did all this work on top of the glass case in their lobby. I thought that was a little unhygienic... She pulled it out of the case and then bent it and wiped it all over the top of the case (where everyone puts their hands while they're looking at the jewelry). When I asked if she could clean it off she said that normally she didn't do that and it should be fine if the piercing hole has healed well enough. When my girlfriend put it in (after sanitizing it ourselves!) we realized she hadn't even done an effective job sanding the end that she trimmed. There were still prominent metal burrs on the end.
This is my first time that someone didn't clean jewelry after purchasing so I always thought it was standard. Also, maybe she doesn't sell many nose studs so that is why she did not know how to shape it. Anyway, it didn't seem like she was too professional or skilled.
The lobby was very clean and lit well though.
i appologize for your former expierence. the person you spoke of also stole from sadu and was mean to clients. she GONE. I was out sick for a month and thought things were being taken care of. Our piercers now have 14 and 9yrs exp. and we are Very nice. please try us again.:))
